Then he looked the murderer Aaron Mace,
At me gray-niue lines in tuenean man's lace;
And he turned away, for he feared it frown
More in death than life. Then he knelt him
down
Not to pray but he shrank from the staring eyes
And this was the man. and this the wav
That he took the stone on its natal day;
Ann lor tnis ne was cursen lor evermore
By the West Australian Koh-i-noor.
Ia the half-dng pit the corpse was thrown,'
And the murderer stood in tbe camp alone.

To nart from the terrible coiutianv
Of that gray:blue face and the bleeding breast.

And the blood of the buried sawver cried
Through tbe night to God, and the shadows dark

He wandered awav from the spot, but fonnd ' 1

Or sink his bead iu a dreamless rest.

His own life's ghost and the ghost-of bis mate.
So he turned one day from the haunts of men,

But little was heard in his later days: '
Twas deemed iu the West that he changed bis
ways,
And tried with his tears to wash out the stain.
'Twas told some natives who once came in
From the Kojonup Hills, that lonely there
They saw a figure with long white hair;
Thev camped close to where his hut was made
And were scared at night when they saw he
prayed
To the white man's God; lint one wild night
They heard his voice till the morning light.
Years ptissed, and asandalwood-cutter stood
At a ruined hut in a Kojonup wood.
The rank weed cyyered the desolate floor,
An ant-hill stood on th fallen door,
The cuplward within the snake was loot,
Aud the hearth was the home of the bandicoot.
Milt neither at hut, norsnnke, nor rnt, ;'
Was the woodcutter starlngso fixed, but at
A human skeleton, clad in gray.
The hands idasiied over the breast u they , .
Had fallen iu peace when he ceased to pray. , :,
As the bnshman looked on tbe form, he saw
In the breast a paper; be stooped to draw
What might tell the storv, but at his touch
From under the hands rolled a leather iouch,
A nil he raised it too. On the paper's face
He read t'Ticket-of-Leaveof Aaron Mace."

we know that what the letter sets iorth is

as to the merits or demerits of the indi

their manner, and possess decided genius.
Their audiences were well pleased, as was
evinced by tbe frequent hearty applause
and repeated encore. While they were
ably supported, there is but little that we
can commend in any of tbe troupe, except
the "sisters." Jennie is undoubtedly the
best actress, but tbe others are uot far be

Ax unusually painful accident happened
to Mr. Wesley Griswold, of Concord, on
Tuesday last, iu the following manner:
Mr. G,riswold was attempting to put a belt
upon a pulley when it slipped and crushed
one half of his hand almost to a jelly. It
was at first thought amputation would be
necessary, but Dr. Gardner being called it
was found that the hand could probably be
saved, although the operation was a diffi
cult one. The hand was brought back to
shape and sewed securely. The injured
man is now doing as well as could be ex
pected, from the serious nature ot the
wound.
The weather has continued to be vari
able aud uncertain to a most exasperating
degree. Pretty little notices about May
flowers, and all that sort of thing, are of
no earthly use, and reporters who are giv
en to gushing over the beauties, of nature
find their effusions in that line at a dis
count. What will be the result if this
continues can not be foretold, and every
one is anxiously waiting to see whether
June is going to come in with a determina
tion to sustain her old-time reputation, or
whether she, too, will yield to the unto.
ward influences at work, and only serve
as a disagreeable reminder that there was
a time when flowers and sunshine were
passible.
The net proceeds of Lampson & Co.'s
fishery, at Fairport, last week was 5:1,236
pounds of scale-fish, and about 1,400
pounds of sturgeon. Of these the larger
part were white-fish, although several tons
of herring were taken, and a considerable
number of other varieties. The linn have
been doing a tine business, shipping large
quantities offish to various places through
out the country, and amply supplying the
home demand. A more extensive bust-
ness has been done this season than last,
the company having the total catch from
eight pounds. It is probable that much
more will yet be done, as the season will
not close until unusually late on account
of the influence of the large mass of ice in
the eastern end of the lake, which will de
lav it until about the middle of June.
"Living Thoughts of Leading Think
ers" is athesaurus of quotations compiled
from the writings of the best European
and American authors, by Rer. S, P.
Lynn, which we have just received. The
thoughts are briefly andtersely expressed
moral in tone aud varied iu its contents.
It is a work which will cause the reader
to think and the thoughts suggested are
of the highest and purest tone. It has
been the work ot one who has been a good
reader and a discriminating one; earnest
and able. It is a literary luxury which
every person should have at baud for
reference aud study. While it is in its
matter excellent, it is printed on line pa
per with a plain text, and is well bound,
making a handsome volume. The town is
now being canvassed for subscriptions and
we would recommend it to the attentiou
of our readers.

The council met at their room as usual
on Friday evening of last week. The first
business was in acting upon the petition
brought by Kufus liriggs and others, re
questing the appointment of a night watch.
The petition which was the one presented

limited to the amount wnicn suan tie col
lected on the subscriptions made for that
purpose. Adopted.
The names of John M. French aud Jacob
Hale were presented as candidates for the
office of special night watch, en the terms
proposed, and the Mayor thereupon by and
with the consent and advice of the Coun
cil appointed Jacob Hale to that office.
J. M. Benjamin was then sworn iu as
Fire Warden and Jacob Hale as Special

Missionary Society.
The Ohio Christian Missionary Society
met on Tuesday at 2 o'clock in tbe Disciple
Church of this place, in its twenty-first
annual convention. Tbe delegates had
not at that time all reached town, but a
large assembly awaited the opeuing exer
cises iu the ulternoou, Wlieu 1 resident
Isaac Errett, the editor of the fjhristian
tittmtUml, ealled the meeting to order.
Elder Isaac Errett was the presiding

Brief speeches were then made, at the
call of the presiding officer, by Dr. J. P.
Ro bison, A. S. Hayden, A. B. Green, A
Burns, J. C. Irvin, J. J. Moss, J. H. Jones,
and J. AV. Ingram, of Paiuesville, and
Thomas Munuell, of Mt. Sterling, Ken
tucky.
It was thought that the indications for
a successful and pleasant gathering were
very favorable, a large number of dele
gates who had already arrived being re-
enforced by more on the arrival of each
train. Anions those present on tbe first
day were the following well-known miuis
ters: Thomas Muunell, Robert Moffett,
Isaac Errett, A. Burns, A. B. Green, A. S

S. Frazier, J. H. Jones, W. F. Moon, Silas
E. Shepard, W. J. Dennis, L. Cole, J. C.
Irvin, W. Dowliug, L. E. Pearre, etc.
Tbe Convention then adjourned until
evening, at which time the members met
in the Congregational Church, their mint
ber being augmented by large numbers of
citizens from all denominations, who were
anxious to hear Elder F.rrett deliver the
annual address. It was estimated that
there must have been an audience of about
eight hundred present. A half hour was
spent in devotional exercises, after which
President Hinsdale, Secretary of tha So
ciety, delivered tbe openiug prayer, which
was followed by the hymn,
" From all that dwell below the skies,"
the entire audience joining in the singing,
President Errett then arose to deliver
the annual address. Taking as texts por
tious of the eight chapter of Acts and the
last chapter of Mathew. The Elder pro
ceeded to show the power of the primitive
Church in a few lit words, and continued
the discourse dwelling upon what, consti
tuted the power, saying it was not from
wealth or wisdom or hutuai) learning,
neither from any political patronage, but a
small band of honest earnest men aud wo
men, numbering at one time but two huu
dred, that had completely changed the so
ciety around them. It was the unity of
spirit among the workers; their equality;
their fellowship that made them capable
of mighty labor, not. the ptiesthood for
there was no priestly caste. The apostles
were taught by Jesus to teach to others
what He Himself had taught them; to
make other disciples; to baptise. Hence
comes the authority of his ministers to
day. The disciples expected the second
coming of their Lord in their day, but t ime
wore on aud he came not, their hopes
faded. They came out of persecution into
power, and when ndversjty was changed
into prosperity, priestly crafl, grew tip,
and lastly the dogma of mtalliahility
came, which we see now iu the nssuuip.
Hon of a weak old man, scarcely able to
take care oi himself. . Then came with the
Ketnrmatioii another change. The com
mon people learned the Gospel, and from
their numbers came expounders ot its pre
cepts. This has ripened and increased un
til in it lies our power in the fire nlnmj
the. whole line. Churches nre everywhere
springing up; old creeds are droppin
away; secHopal barriers fall; old cate
chisms are bejug forgotten. T speaker
here referred to the oung Jen's Chris
tli a n Association the colleges of Spur.
geon and Talmuge, and tbe increasing en
deavors of the lay members. In drawin
to a close the appeal for the need of the
old apostolic zeal,' an A the'generaTrilis-1
ing into use of all t he-churches functions;
was earnestly put forward.
The speech was powerful and eloquent
and was delivered without reference to
auy kind of notes. After the concluding
devotional exercises tbe convention ad
journed to meet in the Christian chapel in
in the morning.
. SECOND DAY. ,
The Convention was called to order at
9 o'clock A. M.
After a tew announcements had been
made by the President, the annual report i
of the Board was read by Mr. Robert Mof
fett, of Bedford. . It was shown by this
that in all of the districts better progress
had been made than during the previous
year. The Columbus, Mission, which had
onlv a list of 30 members a year ago, "had
grown until over one hundred names were
enrolled upon its books. , It is .in a very
fine condition, and many, reasons were
produced showing.tbat the mission should
be sustained. The work was to go on in
the city of Toledo, aud arrangements for
its continuation had been almost comple
ted. The report upon the deaths of sev
eral prominent members showed that the
Society had lost much. Elder Clapp, of
Mentor, was one of those mentioned. The
report was a very touching one. .
After being read it was referred to four
committees who were to consider the part
referred to each and report to the Con
vention. The Treasurer's report was read and re
ferred to the Aditing Committee. .
The committee on place of next meeting
reported in favor of . This report
called out some humorous remarks from
Dr. J. P. Robison aud W, P. Moor. .

The committee which was appointed ouo
year ago to visit the State Baptist, Con
vent ion, in Youngstown, made a report to
the Convention of the result of that visit.
W. P. Moore, chairman of the committee,
spoke briefly tion the report. The result
of the interchange has been: ' -
To enable Disciples to better understand
the Baptists; to enable tbe Baptists to
better understand the Disciples; these re
ports have been widely circulated.
The correspondence between the two
bodies was ordered to be printed in the
miuutes of the Convention.
The Convention then adjourned and was
called to orker at 2 o'clock P. M by the
President after which Elder Soutbmayed
of Steubenville, led in a touching prayer.
The songSweetby and by" was sung and
the Convention was then addressed by
B. A. Hinsdale of Hiram College,, on the
"Two Elements of Missionary Success.
The address was a very hue one, and wan
listened to with marked attention by every
one in the large audience. . It was an able
appeal to the Disciples to call them to in
creased effort. Below we give one or two
selections from the speech: , .
According to M. Guizot, two elements
are comprised iuthe fact which we call
civililization; two circumstances are
necessary to its existence; rt lives upon
two conditions; it develops itself by two
symptoms: these are declared to be the
progress of society and the progress of
individuals cue elements ot tne mission
ary work are two in number. The one is
organization, machiuery, tbe missionary
society; the otber.the raissionav spirit and
euthesirsm of the people of God. Person
al eltort, tree movement, individual spon
taneity, these have a place and a holy
place in the missionary work. 'Phis must
not be lost sight, of. This enthusiasm
must not be repressed, nor divorced from
tbe machinery ot tue organization wnicn
bears it foils great result. Organization
is necessary, but enthusiasm of the people
must also be an element. But the time
will come when the enthusiasm of the peo
ple will need the power ot nieinune ami
organization. In the beginning of our
great revolutionary struggle the hres ol
patriotism were glowing at a white heat.
rue sunpivoi personal uevotton was in
exhaustible; the undisciplined valor ol'fci
nation oi patriotic men seemeu equal to
sufficient for Lexington and Bunker nill ;
and when New lorfc had been abandoned,
there was a necessity for the drill power
of such a brave captain as Baron Steuben
to put the hosts of freedom to such disci
plined state as tnat tney mignt cope wun
the powersequally disciplined whkuihouUl
come against mem.
After the address the hymn "From
Greenland's Icy Mountain" was sung by
the congregation and short speeches were
made by various gentlemen in harmony
with the thoughts of the former speaker,
The following were elected trustees of
the O. C. M. Society: Isaac Errett, C
Lake, J. P. Robinson, James Egbert and
R.R.Sloan.
The Committee on the Mission at Colum
bus and Toledo reported. The resolutions
were adopted. , -
The Committee on Statistics reported
that the effort to collect statistics should
be continued. Adopted. ' ;
After the transaction of various other
matters of "business tbe Convention ad
jourued uutil evening. . , .
In the evening session the devotional
exercises were lea by L. L. l razier ot
Alliance. Dr.. Sheppard then read the
XIX Psalm, after which the President in
troduced Rer. W. P. Moore of Cincinnati,
who addressed the Convention," choosing
his text from the concluding portion of
the XI chapter of Mathew:
"Come unto me all ye that 'are heavy
laden and I will givevott rest. Take inv
yoke upon yon and learn of me,i for I am
meek and lowly in nenrt.aiiu i win give
rest." - - - - .- a
'The remarks were very interesting and
were listened to with the most profound
attention by the large audience present.
After the conclusion of the religions servi
ces the Convention adjourned until morn
On the morning of Thursday the raeet-
iug was opened by devotional exercises .of
a half hour in extent conducted 'by Hiram
Wood ol Mansfield.: The first resolution
brought was one by Mr. Moore of Ciacia
nati, to pay the expenses of delegates to

KtRTLAXD, May 23, 1872.
For the past few days we have been
highly favored with refreshing showers,
the crops look green, and every thing is
growingflnely. Farmers are getting along
tirst-rate with their spring work, and most
the crops are already planted.
; They are agitating just at the present
time a road from Kirtland to Willoughby,
down the river, from Kirtland flats, as far
as JS . Markeu s, then on the line between
N. Markell and Joel Toralinson to the
river; across Tomlinson's land to Henry
Randall's: across Randall's land to H.
Ty ion's; passiug through Tyrou's to John
Hastings'; on Hastings to the river roati,
near Sorter streetj in Willoughby village.
By this route you can save over a mile,
and by keeping down tbe river there will
be no hills, only crossing tne river twice,
and you can go nearly nine months in a
vear without a bridge. I understand that
most of the farmers will give the right of
way. SCRIBBLER.

" : If aples, April 27, 1872. :
This is now the eighth week we have
tarried in this most beautifully located
city. I can add my verification to its gen.
eral description, "a paradise for men,
women so handsome, a purgatory for
women, and a hell for horses." These last,
the majority fine specimens, being driven
so recklessly over the lava pavements
that they last on average only four years.
in no city in Europe are mere so many
wonderful sights and curiosities as are
found grouped here Within a day's tour.
The chiel ana most awe-inspiring oi mem
all is, of course, the isolatt-d Vesuvius.
trur hotel balcony, the Crocelli (orell kept
bv Frenes Alattiuelli), commands a tun
view of it, with its sides dotted one-tbird
its height with houses, and on the inter
vening . comparative planes, picturesque
villages.

dition to tbe two tires at the top, at night
a stream of lava could be seen running
around the left- side like a feather. It
must have been in a direct line from here
at least seven miles. These openings sub
sided in a few days, when suddenly, Tues
day, the 23d. three new openings started,
and with a roar like distant thunder the
lava descended half wav down the mount
ain in two streams. During the day the
streets of Naples were filled with excited
crowds watuning -tue volume ot smote

Welcome to our hearts once more

And at parting feel no sorrow,

For life here is but a bubble

Ed. Journal axd Citizens of Paixks-
ille: On Friday evening, the 17th inst
was appointed by His Honor, Perry
Bosworth, a special night watchman for
this village; and on the same evening nt
full meeting of the Common Council, my
appointment was unanimously confirmed,
and I have already entered upon the duties
of my position. Within a day or two past
it has come to my inlormation. that some
dissatisfaction exists among certain busi
ness men by reason of my appointment,
and that the action of the Mavor and
oum-.il is severely criticised. While 1
frankly agree that there may be some
cause for dissatisfaction, at the same time
must be allowed to say iu justice to mv-
selt, that there has been nothing 'in my
past conduct which justilles anv one in

Lite trust repnseti in uie. ouustantiaiiy it
is tne care ana custom- of tne entire busi
ness property of Painesville during the
night time, and it is therefore one ot great
responsibility requiring unceasttg vigi-
lence.
Of course the appointment is one which
tbe business men hare a right to feel great
interest in, and especially since it is sup
ported largely uy voluntary contributions
from tuem. About soon have been raised
to compensate me for my services for the
coming vear, being an amount br $100 less
than was paid for like services the past
year, iso .reasonable man win say that,
considering tbe responsibility of the posi
tion, tne laoor ana exposure it brings, the
amount to be paid is more than equal to
me value oi me services to oe pertormeu.
I submit, therefore, that as I have entered
upon tbe duties of the position with the
understanding that I am to be paid the
amount subscribed, good laith. and espe
cially ordinary confidence in the judgment
of the Mayor and Council, ought, at least,
to secure to me an adequate compensa-
tion for my services, as well as an indorse
ment or my appointment, until it shall be
seen that by any act of my own I have
forfeited and betrayed mv trusts. I onlv
ask that public censure and dissatisfac
tion be suspended, and that I may be tried.
l am certain tnat it proper encourage
ment and support is given me, or whether
given ine or not, no one win ever nave ot
casion to complain that-1 do not faithfully

We have gleaned two or three items of
inlormation regarding movements of ves
sels well-known in this locality, as fol
lows: The schooner Wm.' Jones cleared at
Chicago last week with 23,000 bushels of
corn for Buffalo.
The schooner F.B.Gardner cleared at
Chicago on the ISth for Port Colborne, with
corn.
A Chicago dispatch says that the seow
Dan Hayes, from Fairport, with brick, has
arrived safely. -
The Cleveland Herald has the following-
on the Detroit towing rates: Much dissat-
isiaction exists in me minds ol those who
are owners of vessels, because of the at
tempted combination of tugs to increase
the rates of towing 15 per cent, over last
season's rates. They contend that freights
are no better than last sensoti, and that,
owing to the low stage of water at all
points, vessels can not in manv instances
carry full loads, which will seriously di
minish their gross earnings. This is .espe
cially the case with vessels that are char
tered at last season rates for iron ore from
Marquette. Steam barges will leave
Cleveland during the coming season al
most daily for points on Lakes Huron and
Superior, which could lie induced to tow-
additional vessels. Vessel owners have
expressed their determination to patron
ize the barges in preference' to the tugs if
iuc .tu-itiuce iu tuning is insisted upou.
The Detroit Post says: The fires in the
woods in the north and westward have
again rendered navigation on Lake Huron
and elsewhere extremely dangerous. The
other morning at an early hour a steamer
was seen making ailigent search for the
entrance to St. Clair River, but so dense
as tne smote that lor a time theenort
as abandoned and she anchored until a
tearing up took place. Everv possible
precaution on tbe part of steamboat and
vessels-captains will have to be carried
out in order to avoid danger.
The St. Louis Democrat says that there
will be, in a few weeks quite a sensation
among rait and steam boatmen, in the
shape of au iron raft tow boat with Mr.
liowier s pateut wheel. The wonderful
power of this wheel is attracting tbe at
tention of bout builders in all directions.
Dowler claims that with it he can save 30
per cent, of the running expenses of a
boat, make better speed, and operate the
boat in a more satisfactory manner.
For the accommodation of overladen
vessels arriving at the Flats, the lighter
Table Rock lias been stationed at that
place. She ts capable of lightering ves
sels of the largest class. This move will
meet the hearty response from navigators,
and prevent grievous detentions.
T he loiiowingtrom tne Cleveland Herald
ill give an idea of what the condition at
Buffalo harbor was last week: "Wednes
day evening four Detroit tugs were render
ing valuable service to tbe blockaded
squadron at Buffalo. The rate for towing
out Tanged at from $300 to $500. The
schooner City of Painesville and one other
craft were towed out bv a Detroit tug for
$300 each, and upward of 20 hours were oc
cupied in working through."
