NORTHERN OHIO JOURNAL.
JAMES E. CHAI3ERS, - - Editor. SATURDAY, - - MARCH 23,1872. EDITORIAL, PARAGRAPHS. Among the latest endorsements re eelred by the present administration are those of Governor tVormotb, of Loui siana a mtnjwhose rule in that State ha been haroly loss corrupt and infa mous than that of the Tammany Ring In New York an J ex-Governor Holden, late of North Carolina, whose official connection with that State was severed by impeachment. They declare uncon ditionally in favor of gtlie renomiua tlon of Grant'and commend him to the u Brazes of the people. After all there of afflinities. Amid the strife and bustle of cease less labor and constant struggle amid the plans and calculations for prlvat fortune and public growth amid the boasts of future and financial success bow many pause to tlynk of the never ending stream that, year by year, flows steadily from 'out our midst into that silent city across the river? There lies another Donulation. from us but not of ' us, quiet, peaceful, resting. No police are needed Jthere, no physicians for body or mind. With soft hued foliage waving above their heads, or softer HaKes clown-dropping a manue oi purest white, they rear no tneit nor wrong, nut . sleep in silence" undisturbed. There is . no need for impatient longing to share Time will bear us all, upon the mighty current that beats against the shores of Eternity's domain but might not an occasional pause for contemplation of . .b.U common goal, bring softened -thoughts and broader charity? Might not an hour, given now and then to memory or to thought of the inevitable, go far to smooth our path in life and tend ta soften the acerbities of the struggle H too bitter in any event which lies between each oneand linal test? Vlgoroa lea;ilatiau. The accepted apothegm that "the world is governed too much," will not apply in any great extent to the present session of the Ohio legislature. There is one great measure of public good that they have never shown an unwilling ness to consider, and that is the motion to adjourn. The promptness with which they have ever listened to this proposi tion is thoroughly commendable. It suggests the bon mot of the English ' Bishop who, when asked by his curate ' how he admired his sermon, replied that , there was one excellent passage the passage from the pulpit to the vestry. Nevertheless, even in this good work, they have shown a lack of thoroughness. They have lost several very Valuable Opportunities. For instance on Thurs day morning, the 14th, they took their regular four clays vacation, but failed to gather a quorum on Tuesday, and for ouzht we know to the contrary, may be failing to the present moment. Such adjournments are enforced, and not (le - serving of the credit that attaches to a regularly planned motion. If they iiad had a quorum on those two days they might have accomplished more of them. ; Aside from this praiseworthy work, they seem to have done little. They elected a United States Senator, and since then have been devoted to elec ting a President. - Some little-reading of petitions, some amusing passages of blarney, and some few special bills, ballast the more important business of adjourning. Such a trifle as the redis ricting bill does not merit much atten tion, and seems likely to go over till too late to affect the coming election. A few more -patches have been added to the ' code of criminal procedure, until those antiquated individuals who had some affection for the principles of tho com mou law, can amuse themselves by hunting the statute for any olden relic, with the affecting consolation that the ; search will never be ended. An attempt was made, too, to give us a game law . which savored of the English Forest Law previous to Magna Charta; but as i certain people had prejudices against retrograding to the middle ages, this ; most worthy measure fell through. There Is little else, of the present ses sion, that occurs to us. . Perhaps they . would have done more If there had been i anything to do. . It is not to their dis- ' credit if they had but one talent,for they ! ' certainly . used no napkins. On the ' whole we should be satisfied if they would only conclude to adjourn a little - more so. Spiritualistic Science. At one of the great head-centres of spiritualism in Boston, Mrs. Annie Lord Chamberlain has or late presided over hosts of disembodied beings to the great delectation of numerous, spectators : Spirit hands, faces and forms have ap peared from fme to time at the window .of a Cabinet, gleaming through the gloom of a darkened room, and flitting to and .fro .in the genuine style of orthodox ' spooks and goblins. We have watched these tilings an wondered with the rest We have not spent sleepless nights in ; conjecturing the manner and means, be ing thoroughly satisfied that it was done, and that the spectators were done also If reason were against the thing, why so much the worse for reason; we were ' as superior to such a trifle as ever old 'Betterldge and his daughter were. We ."' had as supreme a faith that these things came, as Topsy had that she "growed It is just possible we may have known ' fellows who sat beside a comely medium In the dark seance, and felt spirit arms steal round his neck, with the sweet 'touch of a vanished hand." "Spirits is spirits" says Josh Billings "and a man ' whokenttaik spirits without holding hiz breth haz wasted hiz ednkashun." We feel a glowing satisfaction in hav ing bolted these tilings with our eyes shut, so to speak ; and a proportionate ; grievance against the irreverent individ ual who attempts to explain them. No matter that lie speaks as one having au thority, and gets his information from the fountain head; it seems profane to pen such-tender things to analysis, We look, therefore, with much disfavor upon the following from Mr. Thomas R. . Hazard, who has interviewed a spirit to , find out the manner of performance: '. The refined matter out of which these apparitions were formed or at least ren dered cognizable by mortal sermon was gathered from the individuals composing the cirtla. each contributing to the supply. The raw material was then collected to gether in a mass us tiie housewife, having kneaded the dougli for bread, prepares it '.' to be rolled out into any form desired and a certain portion (sufficient for the mani- ' testations about to be made) divided from Jt. This portion, by tlio subtle toree of spirit ehemiatrv, whs deposited in solution in a vapor or atmospheric bath over the beads of the circle, lust as the copper Is held In solution in the bath ot the battery for electrotyping. Immediately the spirit hand or other object is plunged in the bath, and as l the case with the copper upon the ' plate In the process above referred to, the eurthlv matter in solution becomes precip- ' Hated upon the surface of the spirit object to be shown, and the form thus coated with said earthly material becomes tangi ble and visible to physical senses." It is sad, we say, to see our bread made : dough lu this way. This spiritualistic jpastry is not poetio. We, do not want but spirit bauds plunged through this layer of puff paste, emerging all covered with flour and crust. Dyspetic natures like ours cannot stomach this unlearned dough. People have prejudices, you know, and a refined renribility does not thoroughly appreciate the "precipita tion of earthly matter" upon hands which take familiarities. Of course we see how doueh can float in the air, when it is kneaded, but we have our opinion of a spirit that goes through it instead of going around. Xo, brother Hazard, this .thing will not do. If Mrs. Morrison saw spirits in the cabinet "mixing Koraething - that looked like dough," it was nierelv a ce lestial manna for their own consumption. fcve wore fig leaves, and itnunel was adorned with a spear,but there is no such reeord of spiritualistic immodesty as ap pearing clad in paste. Coming in con tact with earthly forms, it would be likely to stick, and the spectacle would not be pleasant for the sun to rise upon. Conceive, too, the inconveniences of sit ting down upon loose articles of person al property. It cannot, no it cannot be possible that those tables which. move, and those chairs which shoot wildly from their spheres, have become momentarily pasted to the tender epidermis of recum bent spirits. Forbid it all hopes of fu-' tilrity, all touching fancies of our latter ends! This theory must not be admit ted. It is false, impious. It is not the true article it is nothing but paste. Wkst Jltkn s Tralttr! " President making" is by no means a trivial matter. On the contrary, it is one of the most important that apper tains to the posltionof an American cit izen. For this reason, discussion and criticism are not only the . priviledge, but the duty of every, man and every paper throughout the country. . Theo retically all admit this as true practi cally party politicians ignore it and seek to prevent that free expression of opin ion which alone can bring out the will of the people. . With them criticism of an Administration, means defection from party allegiance, and no less denuncia tion is visited upon the one than upou the other. In consequence of this, the query at . the beginning . of this article seems to us a most pertinent one. . Admitting that there is some proper time and place to agitate public abuses with a view to their removal ana the im provemeht of the administrative ma chinery, the question naturally arises ichen, Certainly it must be either before orafter election. If the former, we are at once met by the assertions of the po litical managers, that this will imperil and injure the party, and by the sug gestion to wait. If the latter, expe rience has proven that remonstrances then fall on leaden ears, and that no practical reform will be inaugurated by men secure of their position for the pres ent and backed y the national disincli tion to waste time on what would 1 lit tle else than crying over spilt milk. What then is to be done, by a Republi can, for instance, wno is uissatisneu with the administration who either has lost confidence in the President or who believes that, even if personally pure himself, he is .surrounded by and and Influenced by men of whom the same cannot be said and whose influ ence would be strengthened rather than weakened by re-election?' That there are many true and loyal men belong ing to the Republican party who feel thus, none can deny. What then are they to do? Clearly they ought not to go over to the Democracy for none would look for relief from that source or doubt that a Democratic Administration would en tail endless trouble and confusion. The only answer that remains then, is that reform must besought within the party. But what shall be the methods adopt ed ? Is there a party leader or an ad ministration paper that can or will give any information upon this point? They all agree upon what must not be done, but maintain perfect silence as to what ought to be done. Nominations or plat forms differing from those of the party must not be advocated because it threat ens to make a split and thus bring the Democrats into power. Criticism or condemnation 'of the administration is an attack upon the Republican party, and any attack upon the Republican partv endangers tiie couutry and ren ders imminent the disaster of bringing the Democrats into power. The only fit time to discuss the fitness of a President for re-election is during the last year of his term. This is the time when public attention is most called to him and bis record, and this is the time when, having already perform ed ' the duties of bis office for three lyears, he is best able to reply to any unjust accusations. To do this any sooner would be an injustice to him to do so any later would be useless to the people. But anyone who makes the at tempt Is at once accused of foul play. If a person attempts to lay before the pub lic the shortcomings of an administra tion, he is at once accused of seeking to prevent a renomination, as if this were sufficient reason why he should not be listened to, when that fact is the only reason for speaking at . all. The logic that is used is peculiar. To demonstrate the President's unfitness is to attack the Administration to attack the Adminis tration is to attack the party to attack the party is to work for its defeat to defeat it is to ruin the country by throw ing it into the hands of the Democracy The truth is that all such attempts to muzzle free discussion are simply the gags of political demagogues. A. man may be a true Republican and yet disap prove of acts or individuals. Leet and Stocking were both members of the par- ty, but not even the veriest hack would claim that it is necessary to the party to support them in their frauds in the New lork Custom House, is either is any man necessarily a renegade and traitor to Republican principles because he op poses the re-nomination of Genera Grant. Attempts to show that he is not a good man for the place, or that some one else, would be, are : not, by any means the base and contemptable acts that so many party papers and party speakers : would seek to make them This discussion and ventilation of views and opinions is simply the only way by which Reform can be secured, and just before an election the only time when it will be followed by any practical good. If investigations disclose no grounds of complaint, they will only redound to the credit of the administration if well- founded thev can need no defense other than the reform compelled by them.

Be side this there are two other full page illustrations one, "Evenings at Home," by Emslie, beautifully engraved by Henry Linton the oiher. 'The Hud- sou at Hyde Park." by Smulie. Both are wonderful examples of what enter prise and trenius can produce, and are as fine specimens of art as can be found. Of the smaller cute,"The Little Mother" by John a. Davis, is conspicious as one of the very best specimens of figure drawing that we have yet seen fron an American pencil. .Mr. Davis is consci entious in every detail, and lovers or true art will look to -his future with the greatest expectation. Pictorially, this number justifies the bighest commenaa tlon, and indicates a fixity of purpose on the part of the publishers, that augurs well for American .Art. The -literary department is very well sustained, and we think, for excellence and variety ,this is the best number yet issued. Among its stories, which are always good, we may mention "Mr. Maximilian Morning- dew's Advice," a curious psychological study, by Julian Hawthorne; "The Story of Coelio," a romantic incident in the life of a famous Spanish painter, by R. B. Davev : and "The Puddle Party," by Lolly Dink's Mother, a childlike fantasy, which Hans Andersen himself might have written.

Thb Senate Betume for the weekend- tug jfarcA ltflA. un Wednesday Mr. Jones or Trumbull introduced a bill to apportion the State into Congressional Districts. This makes the third bill of the kind, two others having been intro duced, some time since, by Messrs. Stlmpson and Thomson. . There were also a few local bills introduced, and seven or eight others, mostly House bills, were passed. The next day, Thurs day, was another illustration of the pol icy of "masterly inactivity" which pre vailed in the councils of the State. No thing whatever was done beyond the in troduction of one or two bills and the reading of a few petitions. . Adjourn ment followed as a matter of course, and the Senate took advantage of the regular recess to go home until Tuesday. At this date, howeverj they had not return ed in sufficient numbers, and the Senate again adjourned for want of a quorum. Thk House. liesume for the week end ing March iatA. Wednesday was occu pied in routine business, with nothing done beyond the usual memorial busi ness and the bringing in of a few new bills. Among the latter was one by Mr. Steele to authorize the commissioners of Lake county to levy a tax to build a bridge across Grand River, between Painesviille and Fairport, in place of one destroyed. Thursday was another day distinguished by being one in which no thing was accomplished beyond the usual fillibustering. The adjournment ex tended until the following Thursday, at which time no quorum was present, and the public business was forced to go un done through the absence of those whose duty it is to do it. This absenee is get ting to be the enrse of this General As sembly. There is scarcely a day passes but what a dozen or more members are absent, some at home attending court, some out on pleasure parties, and some atending to other business. This natur ally delays business, and makes members who are present naturally indignant that they are .forced to remain her White others are attending (o their private af rairs. ine adjournment once in three weeks is productive pf good results, inas much as it allows members to go home and consult personally with their con stituents, relative to matters pending be fore either branch of the Assembly, but when these respites are taken it should be enough to satisfy any reasonable set of men, and they should return promptly to their duties. There are some mem bers who favor rescinding the resolution for the adjournment once in three weeks, on the ground that the session should close at as early a day as possible, say the 16th or lath or next mouth, but it is said the majority of members of lioth Houses say there will be no hope of clos ing the session until near the last of April, and that there is no use to en deavor to make political capital at the risk of neglect of business. It is prob able there will be ati effort made this week to cut the session off, and settle on some time when it shall adjonrn. henator Tiptou or Nebraska arrived at Cincinnati on Friday night to consult with the leaders of the liberal move ment in regard to the May Convention. n an interview with a reporter or the Time fc Chronicle he named Garfield, of Ohio, and Dawes, of Massachusetts, as leading Republican members of the House, who were known to be secretly in sympathy with the anti-Grant move ment of the' Republican party He says Trumbull is his first choice lor the Pres idency, but that the Convention here will probably decide on Davis. A meeting or liquor dealers was held in Columbus to meet a committee from Newark, to devise some plan tor bring ing a pressure on the Legislature so as to secure the amendment of the liquor laws. A committee or prominent brewers and liquor dealers was appointed to visit Cin cinnati to urge dealers of that city to unite in this movement. A committee was also appoiuted with instructions to call a State convention of property own ers and nauor dealers, and all interested in having the liquor laws repealed or amended, iu case the legislature does not take some action on the bills now be fore them during next week. The excitement on the question of sus taining or repealing the liquor law of 1870 tuts steadily increased since the de cision of the Supreme Court, two weeks ago, sustaining the law.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. Tax Senate liesume for the week end ing March 19th. Wednesday was for the most part taken up with the discussion over a measure introduced by Mr. Conk- ling, who called up his resolution asking tne president to communicate to tne Senate the number of recommendations for office made by the Senators from New York, Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska, and proposed to add to it the following : And whether appointments or requests have in any instance been made at the suggestion or requestor any third partv who has acted as a go-between either of said senators and the appointing power, to represent or in any manner cause it to be understood that such appointments or removals would be agreeable to or were desired by any Senator, and if so giving the names of persons who so rep resented or Caused it to be understood. But without reaching any conclusion the Senate, late in the day, took up the legislative appropriation bill and con tinued its consideration until the hours of adjournment. On Thursday, after some discussion over the future order for business, the bill of the previous day was again taken - up, and after some amendments was finally passed. ,Tlie tariff bill was called np, but no action was taken in regard to it. On Friday morning, Mr. Trumbull rose to a per sonal explanation, and sent to the desk to be read an extract f rom a Washington letter in the Republican Banner, pub lished in Michigan, charging that he had pocketed a $10,000 fee in the AlcAr die case in the Supreme Court, having been employed for the United States by President Johnson, and charging fur ther that his vote on the impeachment trial was influenced by that fee, and call ing for an investigation into the matter by the Senate. Mr. Trumbull said that during seventeen years' service in the Senate he had not before risen for a per sonal explanation, although he had of ten been misrepresented and calumnia ted. He denounced the charge as mali cious and preposterons. He produced letter showing that he was employed not by Johnson but by Secretary Stan ton and General Grant two months be fore the articles of impeachment against Johnson were prepared, and that the fee was fixed by Secretary Stanton. He argued that his employment in the mat ter was perfectly legal and proper. He charged that the letter was writ ten by a man in the employ of the Gov ernment, and intimated that the charge had been made for the purpote of injur ing him because he was hostile to the in fluence by which that man was kept in office. He also referred to the resolu tion offered by Mr. Chandler somo time ago, for an inquiry whether or not any Senator had taken a fee from the United States contrary to law, and said that when the authors of these slanders dis covered that he had been employed by Grant instead of Johnson- they would not ask again for an investigation, but like slimy snakes would crawl to their rdens. Withont any . action, however. being taken the tariff bill was taken up and the debate opened by Mr. Sherman. Space prevents any extract or attempt at recapitulation in regard to his re marks. After a long and careful review of the subject in which he brought out the statistics upon which they relied on justifying reductions he discussed gen eral principles of protection and free trade, claiming that the former should be maintained as essential to the foun dation of our national prosperity, and closed by stating that the Committee on Finance was of the opinion that now, when so many taxes are repealed, there ought to be a general reduction of du ties on textile and metalic fabrics, and that this reduction should be at the rate of ten per cent, which Is about the rate of reduction on tariff duties. At the close of his speech the Senate ad journed uutil Monday. That day, when it came, was taken up with miscellane ous matters of no general interest, be ing mostly in reference to personal bills or resolutions. On Tuesday there was the same general, desultory, talk over various measures, iu the course of which it was finally agreed that the final vote on the Chicago relief bill should be ta ken the following day. Thk House Resume for the rceek ending March 19th. On Wednesday after some little general business the House went into Committee of the Whole on the postofiice appropriation bill, the pending question being the amendment increasing the subsidy to the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. The discus sion of this measure occupied all day but at last without disposing of any of the pending amendments, the committee rose and the House adjourned. Thurs day was taken up in the discussion of land grants and the passage of some mi no bills. On Friday the great oil-question which has been cogitating the Cleveland and Titusville refiners and producers was ' brought . into national prominence and on motion of Mr. Sco field the Committee on Commerce was Instructed to inquire into the nature, ex tent and objects of the South Improve ment Company, alleged to be seeking a monopoly in the transportation of oil from Penn. to the seaboard. The bill granting lands to the St. Crois and I -ike Superior Railroad was again taken up and after protracted debate, and the adoption of several amendments was finally adopted. Saturday was for gen eral debate only. Monday was spent in a general whilly-shallying without ac complishing anything. On Tuesday there was considerable miscellaneous business transacted in the way of pri vate bills and general work and at three o'clock the House went into Committee of the Whole, and debate on the Pacific Mail Subsidy was resumed, being re stricted to one hour. Without reaching any action the committee arose and the House adjourned. A delegation of six chiefs of Chippe wa Indians, from Northern Michigan, were at the White House, and paid their respects to the President, . Tobacco manufacturers from the south and east were before the Ways and Means, Committee, urging a uniform tax, and suggested that the Committee fix the tax at any figure they please, but to bacco men want it uniform, and not in two grades of sixteen and twenty-four cents.

"Dawes has already written a letter denying it, and Garfield will do likewise. It is under stood that the authors of the Cinciuniti movement are prepared to make some disclosures about secret conferences that have been held here, which will show that several prominent Congressmen, supposed to be for Grant, have been casting about to see what chance there was oi defeating him.

Omaha has called a State convention of Nebraska men to take steps to force the railroads terminating iu Council Bluffs to recognize Omaha as the east ern terminus of the Union Pacific, and the place where transfers are to be made, and the papers suggest an inter-State war if it comes to that. The excitement is intense on both sides. The Omaha and Northwestern road proposes to ship goods to and from the Kast via Sioux City, a route sixteen to twenty hours longer than by the direct lines to Coun cil Bluffs. The transfer boats are busy transferring goods from the Iowa roads to the Union Pacifle with regularity, promptness and dispatch.

The. various efforts which haye been made to turn a large tide of immigration into the Black Hills, Dakota, for the purpose of developing their wonderful mineral and agricultural resources, has had the effect of thoroughly waking up the people of the territory to the great importance of this movement. Several large and enthusiastic meetings have been held in the southern part of the territory during the past week. An ad journed meeting will bo held at Yank ton, at which a plan of action will be decided upon. A committeeof thirteen, appointed at the meeting last week, have prepared a petition asking for partial ab rogation of the treaty with the Sioux In dians, which will be circulated at once and forwarded to Washington. The unanimous report of the govern ment directors, deciding that Council Bluffs aud not Omaha, is the legitimate terminus of the Union Paciflc'Railroad, has created a very marked activity in real estate and business matters at "this point. LOUISIANA. The Picayune says the news of the ap pointment of J. M. G. Parker as purvey or of customs, vice Longstreet, has fallen like a bombshell among the ranks of the colored Republicans, and that Senator Ingram and Representatives Burch and Lott have gone to Washington to protest against the imposition of another carpet bagger upon the people of Louisiana. The feeling among the colored Republi cans at this appointment is said to be the more bitter because they have been led to believe that the corruption known as carpet baggers was defunct, and had been sloughed off from the bone, of conten tion ironically known as the State of Louisiana. The state of Parker is fla grantly carpet-baggish in its character. It is asserted that he resides with his family in Lowell, Massachusetts, that his residence in New Orleans has been little more than nominal, aud that since the spring of 1870 he has not until a few weeks ago put in an appearance in his so called adopted home. CALIFORNIA. One thousand Apaches, lately on the reservations, are now on the war path in Arizona. General Crook has started for Tonto Basin, with friendly Hulapais for scouts, . . Owing to silver coin becoming a nuis ance, falling two per cent in trade, the San Francisco mint refuses to accept sil ver bullion for coinage. The first shipments of the spring clip of wool have been made from Los Ange los, fine lots being contracted for on the ranchos at to 45 cents per pound. The steamer Pioneer hug been suuk In the Straits of Carguines. Boat and cargo are a total loss, . All hands were saved. Joint resolutions ngalnst the Goat Is land Railroad concession were intro duced In the Legislature. The estimated yield of wheat, this sea son, iu San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Mer ced counties, is fourteen millions of bush els. The wool product of California last year aggregated 24,270,253 pounds, an increase of nearly, five millions ou ten previous year. The clip this, season Is expected to be still livger and of superi or quality, PENNSYLVANIA. A large meeting of oil produces, brok ers and "capitalists was held Saturday af ternoon to adopt means to successfully cope with tiie Southern Improvement Company, it is proposed to divide the Pennsylvania fields into sixteen districts, the owners of welU to unite under a charter fur protection, and all crude ma terial to pas-iiuo the hands of and be ; sold by the organization, the capital to be one million dollars. A dispatch from New York under date of the 17th says, that the Committee of the New York Pe troleum Association has returned from tiie oil regions, and reports the producers in earnest in opposing the attempted monopoly of the Southern Improvement Company, and each District Committee, of which there are sixrecn. refuses to furnish oil to that concern, even a con tract having been broken in one case by the producer. The producers can, it is claimed, hold but four months, but need more assistance from capitalists, and of fer as security the oil in tanks, which is secured by insurance and guaranteed against leakage. The object of the Southern Improvement Company is said to be to sustain Cleveland refineries and control the market by raising freight charges on all producers not selling to the monopoly. They already begin to feel the opposition, as oil has been com ing here for several days which they feared to interfere with", owing to the strong feelings iu the oil regions. It is quite possible the company will be or dered to close up the tanks "and leave the oil regions altogether. During the pres ent combat work is dull, and thousands of workmen are idle. NEW YORK. Affairs at the Erie railway officers have settled into ordinary quiet. Gould said he was glad to be out of the Erie presidency, the salary of which did not pay for the pepetual harassing which came with the olliee. He will soon re turn to Wall street. Shearman aud Field are retained by Barlow as associ ate counsel tor the Company. It is un derstood that noiiction will lie taken in reference to Lane's alleged contempt of court iu destroying Judge Inghram's in junction. A. " D. Williams, of the com mittee representing the American RtoeK- holders. sneaks ot an minnction in ine event of any steps toward consolidation with the Atlantic and Great Western. The illness of Clark, a juror in the Hall case, has terminated fatally, and a new trial will be ordered. The llearla publishes an Erie exhibit whieh shows that there has been a tre mendeous increase in all the 'depart-; ments where fraud could be penetrated since 1807, the time when Gould aud his j associates become connected with the road. The contingency exjienses which in 18G7 were $32,306.82, in 1869 increased to f 146,029.52 and in 1871 to $190,252.43. The general superintendency amounted to $113,461.51 in 1867 and in 1870 Jim Fisk's year it jumped to $167,280.28. The issue of stock ascended from twenty five millions to eighty-six millions, aud of this sum there is actually said to be a deficit unaccounted for of fifty-one mil lions, covered up in some ingenious way to those who have had access to the Erie books. The item of agents and clerks, which in 1867 was $611,711.91, increased until in 1871 there was $1,173,629.23 set down. The increase for conductors, baggage-masters and brakesmen, were over $400,000. The executive Committee of the Erie Road report its liabilities as follows: Common stock. $78,000,000; preferred stock, $8,536,000: funded debt, $26,458, 300: consolidated mortgage insured but not sold, $3,386,000. Total, $116,381,216. The Company owes in addition tor sup plies, labor 'and loans, $5,693,575. It holds leases of other roads the annual rents of which is $1,117,000, and the in come from which exceeds the rental, and it holds as collateral for loanS, etc., se curities of various bonds and companies to the amount of $98,80G,400. The Herald's Washington dispatch says An anti-Grant Convention is to be held at Parkersburgh, West Va., the 18th of April. The movement is understood to be in the iuterest of Judge Chase. A declaration of principles has been agreed upon, and the originators desig nate the new party by the name of Deiu- ocratic-Kepnoncan .rarty. Jay Gould in his testimony said that in 1869, be saw President Grant and Judge Barnard at the play of the Twelve Temptations. He had seen the President in the box with Fisk. William L. Flagg, who says he was one of the victims whose testimony be fore the Custom House Committee was called a downright lie by Special Agent Howe, publishes a card re-offering his original statement and that Howe set tlad the Cooper case for one thousand dollars. England. It is reported that England and Urua guay have come to an open rupture, and that" all friendly relations bet ween them have ceased. , Murphy, the well-known anti-Popery lecturer, is dead. It is believed his death was caused by injuries received at the hands of the mob while delivering a lec ture, some time since, iu White Haven. Calcutta. . The assassin of Earl Mayo has been ex ecuted. He made a confession declar ing tbat the death of the Viceroy was not the result of a conspiracy, as he alone aesigneu ana carried out the mur- S rter. He also said that he intended to I kill General Stewart, who accompanied Earl Mavo on his tour of inspection to Port Blair, and was only prevented from fully executing his "purpose by the promptness of his arrest after attacking the Viceroy.

At- In view of the many statements that have been made by rival dealers in regard to the agency and qualities of the celebrated HazeLtox Pi ano, I would respectfully submit the following letter. from the manufacturing Arm of Hazclton Bros., and also the following testimonials from the lead ing musicians of this vicinity. J. J. Pratt. H azcltom Bros. Pi ano Warkrooms, i 34 A 86 University Place, New York, Iec., '71.1 This is to certify tbat J. J. Pratt, Esq., is Sole Agent for the sale of our Pianos in Painesvillc, Lake county, Ohio, and also in adjoining coun ties. In consequence of our arrangement with Mr. Pratt, he will be able to sell to any parties de siring a Piano of onr make cheaper than could be purchased of us direct And we guarantee every Piano of our make sold by him to be a per fect instrument, and to give entire satisfaction Hazeltox Bros. '. J. NO. 8. . ' Painksvillk, O., Jan. 12,1872. I examined the instruments of Hazelton Bros. of New York, and state, without hesitation, that they are excellent Pianos, as well in tone as in mechanism. The touch is deep and elastic, and fully equal to the Stein way or Chickering; and I can recommend it to any one wanting a real flrst-clasi instrument. So many agents are now going about the country trying to persuade and unfortunately too often succeed in selling pianos of an inferior make that I take this opportunity of warning people against these itnposters, and telling them to take none but one of those make which I have ' named, viz : Hazelton. Steinway, and Chicker ing; and my advice is to take the Hazelton. I have this day - ordered from J. J. Pratt, Esq. the agent for the Uazleton Bros. Piano, another instrument for my own private use. Dr. Henrt Suttkr, Professor of Music, Painesville, O. i no. a. : After an acquaintance of over fifteen years I feel that I can fully agree with and endorse all that Dr. Henry Sutter has said in the above rec ommendation ofthe Hazelton Bros. Piano. W. ABM8TB0N6. SO. 4. ' Painesville, Jan. is, 1872. I purchased of J. J, Pratt, Esq., a Hazelton Brothers' Piano for my own use, and have used it for six months without tuning.

Y.4 No. 5019. .purchased by me fortheWil- loughby College last ' week. This Hazelton Piano is probably the best ever bad in the College Building. It has a pow erful and brilliant tone, combined with great sweetness and singing qualities. The action is perfect, and its elastic touch affords the player s real pleasure instead of bard work, as is often the case with' other Pianos. The work. maasbip, elaborate finish, inside and outside, cannot be surpassed.1 Thanking you for your kindness in selecting for ns such a splendid instrument, and hoping tbat many others may avail themselves of your good Judgment and taste, I remain, most re spectfully, yours truly.

The boys who have practiced ou it have given it the hardest kind of usage, pounding it unmercifully for eight hours a day. The Piano is still in good order, and iu a fair way to go through eight years more, for aught I can tea.
