Two additional stories now make a la dies' hat in accordance with Fall fashions The Grant Cadets held a meeting on Friday evening for drill and general busi ness. , A reservoir is being built on or in State street, near the junction of that and Bank street. The shoe-black business seems . to be drooping. Boys ain't on the shine as much as they were. A certain liquor seller here says that all his protits come under the head of le gitimate bar-gains. There is beginning to be some com ,,iajnt in certain parts of the county that I 1 . , . . the wells are again becoming dry. A Grant and Wilson Quartette Glee Club has been organized, with Messrs. Kellogg, Higgius, Crane and 1'ratt as members. IN another column will be found the communicated report of tbe Democratic Liberal.Couvention, recently held at Ra venna. A little boy on Mentor Avenue has learned Hint it is productive of unpleasant results to trifle with the business end of a wasp. ' - The Fall meeting of the Lake County Fair commences next week, witb a smaller list of premiums than has ever beiorebecn offered. . - .- A company of "Grant Cavalry" has been formed here and on Friday afternoon there was a drill on the flats just across the river. The Disciple Church has been made the recipient of a fine communion set, consist ing of nine articles. Mrs. 8. AV. Parmely was the donor. On Saturday "Bon" Gregory got on the rampage and as a resultant effect passed the Sabbath within the charmed precincts of the county jail. The freight depot of the P. & Y. R. R which will be used as a passenger depot, during the coming winter, it is expected, will be finished before cold weather. The good that people hear of a person is kept as a sacred secret, but tbe evil re port is straightway confided to every one of their dear ten thousand friends. By reptiest we announce that Elder AVhite, of Perry, is to speak at the Center of LeRoy on Sunday evening at 7 o'clock All are cordially invited to be present. Major G. AV . ROE has patented a very sinmle trarden plow, but which is said to be very effective and very useful. H. H Hine will have them here on exhibition next week. On to-morrow Sunday evening. Rev J. AV. Ingram will speak upon tbe follow ins subject; "Infidel objections to tbe principles of Christ examiued." A cor dial invitation is extended to all to at tend. Full and complete market reports are invaluable to every one, and more espec ially to the farmer. Compare thoseof the JOUKX'AL with those in any other paper in this vicinity. AVk were promised a report of the re union of Battery C, which was announced to take place iu Madison on Thursday of this week, but it tailed to reach us in time for this issue. Subjects for Sunday lectures at Wil cox Hall. "Is the Bible the infallibly in spired word of God?" Evening at 7 o'clock "The Clergy a Source of Danger to the American Republic. " Several stores have been found open and been attended to by the night watch man during the past week. If our mer chants don't look a little more out, some of them will lose something. J. E. Baker has lost a watch for which he offers a reward of $5.00. As the watch was a present from his father, now de ceased, be feels particularly anxious for ts recovery. See advertisement. A few days since Mrs. D. D. Aiken had one of the bones in her right arm broken by a window tailing upon it. Tbe frac ture, although painrul, is healing as rap idly as could perhaps be expected. It is a mistake to think that dog days are over twenty-nine hirsute canines on one street at tho same time prove to the contrary. And it was not a very good time or a very good place for dogs either. Among those who took first premiums at the Northern Ohio Fair was F. J. Gold smith, who received that coveted distinc tion on his Invertible Trough for watering and feeding stock. It will be on exhibi tion to this place next week. Throughout tbe entire week the weath er has been cool,altbough tor the most part very pleasant. Winds just breathing the faintest of icy temperatures and dun brown leaves falling here and there begin to show that winter is not far distant. The Weakly Joker was a very fair pa per indeed this week indeed there was little that was not fair in its columns. How could it be otherwise, with every other item a puff for the iaii ? And the fact that they are all paid lor need make no difference. We learn that several of our citizens are contemplating a visit to the Cincinnati In dustrial Exposition, which opened on the 3d inst., aud which will contiuue in opera tion until some time iu October. Those who attended last year say that it is well worth a visit. A gentleman, occupying a prominent position among Uncle Sam's officials in this vicinity, recently made a most unex pected and startling discovery. Haviug provided himself with a splendid false set o' teeth he suddenly found himself pos sessed of a splendid falsetto voice. We are now making arrangements with most of the leading publications in the country by which we shall be enabled to offer them at greatly reduced prices, to such of pur patrons as may desire to take them fn connection with the Journal. We shall publish tbe list in a short time. Dr. A. R. Hammond brought to this of fice, one day this week, the largest apple that we remember to ever have seen. Per fect in form, fair in appearance.and of avery pleasant flavor it was a curiosity no less from its pertectness than from its size. In circumference it measured a trine over fourteen inches. On Monday a little colored boy, while playing ou the street, was run over by the delivery wagon of the Tainesville Mills, and at the time it was thought his injuries were fatal. We learned afterwards, how ever, that they were not so serious as at first supposed and understand t hat he is now recovering from their effects. In our next number we shall resume the publication of'Anecdotes of Public Men," written by Colonel Forney for the AVash- ington Sunday Mumituj Chronicle, from the columns or which paper' we reproduce them. His absence to the Paciitc coast has prevented any from appearing lately, and the one next week will be the first since his return. T. S. Paddock of Cleveland is now daily receiving large invoices ot tan hats, caps, gloves and all other things of "that ilk" which he proposes to sell at rare bargains. By his advertisement, which will be found in another column, we see that he is mak ing a specialty of ladies fur goods and is intendine to take the lead in this section of the state In that department. Last Tuesday a meeting of the Lake County Republican Central Committee was held for organization and general bus iness, captain George n.. Paine was ex cused from serving in consequence of urgent business engagements, and S. P. Chesney was appointed to fill his place. J. F. Schofield was elected Chairman, and S.P. Cbesney Treasurer'and Secretary. And now have commenced those de lightful days which are so much enjoyed by men with families; when stoves are dragged Irom their resting places and pipes are found to have most unaccounta bly lost their knack of fitting; when chim neys have struck and will not draw, and when the various delights of settling in cold, raw weather, are all fully experien ced and appreciated. Those who desire to learn where they can secure good bargains iu clothing may de so by reading tbe advertisement of Jas, W. Carson & Co., of 257 Superior street, and Xos. 7 and 11 Public Square, Cleve land, which will be found in another col umn. A ith a large stock ot good goods, bought at the lowest market prices, they are able to furnish rare bargains in every thing in their line. ' Of course it "is a very bad habit to use tobacco. . But, admitting that, we must also admit that a great many people are so far from perfect as to be strongly addicted to the gratification of the vice. To such we feel that we are giving good advice when recommending them to pur chase of L. Frcitag, for to smoke a good cigar or to use goop tobacco .goes far to ward lessening the . onense, ana one can always 'procure the best ol everything iu this line at his establish ment. One of the best places in tbe country at which to purchase every kind ot frames mirrors, pier glasses, and all goods in that line, is at A. S. Bobbins' No. 228 Superior street, Cleveland, Ohio. In quality and cheapness his goods are unsurpassed, while the various designs on exhibition all show that the purchasing was done by some one of taste and judgment. Chromes, engravings aud lithographs of every style will be found here and those about to pur chase can do no better than to visit this establishment. See advertisement in an other column. If Riley Harris an overgrown boy ot perhaps eighteen, who lives, we believe, in Kirtland, but is at present working in Mentor or Concord and Albert Jloose a youth of ten or twelve years of age, living in one of the two last mentioned towns would devote a few of the coming winter evenings to the study of the requirements of courtesy and good breeding, or even of those of common decency, the result could not fail to be of practical benefit to themselves and a source of gratification to all who may hereafter form their acquaint ance. In coming from toward the moun tain, a tew days since, these two managed to give a fair illustration of their cultiva tion and refinement (f) by insulting and annoying a party riding just behind them whom they compelled to bear with their im pertinence by driving too and fro across the road iu such a way as to prevent the team behind from passing them. Prof. O. G. Pkatt has again opened his Commercial College lor the "Kail cam paign" and, we are pleased to learn, with better prospects than ever before. There is no reason why an institution of this kind should not receive good supiort here, and certainly Prof. Pratt is an able and thorough teacher. We have no hesitation in warmly recommending the college as one in which can be acquired the best of commercial educations, and trust that the efforts of the proprietors will be crowned with all the success that the merits of the school entitle them to. The contract ol paintiug the Court House which has been "under way" for some time past is now completed and one is almost tempted to regret that so much good work had not a better building for a foundation. So far as we are able to judge, the work has been well and thoroughly done and we doubt not but that the con tractors Messrs. George Roberts of Union- ville, X. B. Johnson and W. F. Lockwood of Geneva, and Mr. Gillett of Madison- have faithfully earned their money. The outside work is plain but neat and the im provement is one that has been long needed. Among the new advertisements in this issue will be found that ot c. A. porter, who announces anew aud carefully selec ted stock of every variety of ready-made clothing, which he proposes to sell at as low prices as any other dealecjn this place or its vicinity. Mr. Porter has been in business here for so many years and has made for himself so wide-spread a reputa tion that it needs no further word of com mendation to induce his friends to contin ue their patronage than to assure them that be will continue to furnish as good goods at as low prices as heretofore. Read his advertisement. We have been requested to announce that the ladies of Perry have leased the Dining Hall on the Fair Grounds and will be prepared to serve all hungry souls with "good square meals" during the continu ance of the Fair. All the subftautians and delicacies of theseason will be served the style which the ladies of that township so well understand and which is the highest recommendation or promise that can be given as to the quality of the entertainment. The proceeds will be de voted to furnishing the M. E. Church of Perry. AYe trust and doubt not but that a liberal patronage will be extended. One ot the largest and most popular clothing stores in Cleveland is that of J. Manslield & Co., No. 52 Public Square. Keeping always on hand a very full stock of every variety of goods in their line, a purchaser is thus not only enabled to avail himself of tbe almost freedom in selection but is also given tbe benefit of the bargains which such heavy buyers as Messrs. Mansfield & Co., are always able to secure. Those of our readers who in tend to visit the city for the purpose of buying anything in this line ran not do better than to call at this establishment. Our word for it if n ; goes to look he will stay to purchase. See their advertisement elsewhere in this paper. Scarcely a mistress of a household but dreads that direst of all days, when the weekly washing is to be done. For that reason it must have been witb a great deal of interest that they have perceived by bills, during the past week, that there is a newinventiou now out, by which washing can be lone "without labor," and with great saving of time and wear of clothes. Messrs. Lord & Whitten now have on ex hibition at the Stockwell House a new steam boiler which they claim to be the most perfect ever invented and for the truth ot which claims they certainly ex hibit numberless testimonials. They otter to place a boiler in the house of anyone who will leave the address, for trial, and thus give all ample opportunity for testing the merits of tbe invention. Personally we don't, perhaps, fully understand or ap preciate the modus operandi, inasmuch as we never were very good at washing, but we believe it will repay anyone who has a tamiiv to call and examine this boiler. Those who will stop for a moment to consider, can easily perceive that it is im possible for one watchman to successfully protect the business houses against bur glaries or theit. AA'ith a beat so large that it is impossible to make the rounds in less than an hour, it is an easy matter for a raid to be made without detection. The petty larcenies of the past few weeks am ply prove this, and 'ere long the lesson will be enforced upon someone's con. sciousness in a way more convincing thau pleasing or profitable. The town ought to have a rcgularlv organized police force, divided into day and night squads, and should be willing to employ from four to six men for this service. Parsimony is never economy, and it is always a short sighted policy which destroys through nig- garduess. We understand that this sub let is being agitated and we sincerely trust that those whose business it is to see to it will speedily take some means to more effectually protect the town against midnight prowlers and desperadoes. Farewell Meeting. (As Rev. John H. House, of Painesville, leaves us next week for Bulgaria, Turkey, where be is to be a missionary of the American Board, a farwell meeting will be held in the Congregational Church on Sunday evening next at 7 o'clock. Mr. House's friends and tbe public generally will be glad to hear the young missionary's voice again before leaving home. Real Estate Transfers. The sales of real estate during the past week have' been comparatively few and the list which we present of the week's transactions is necessarily, therefore, a small one.

Among the many elegant displays at the Northern Ohio Fair there were few that attracted more attention than did the exhibition of carpets and tapestries by Messrs. Stone & Coffin of Cleveland. And that the general admiration of those iu at tendance was shared bv the judges is proven by the fact tliat to this firm was awarded the first premium on carpets, oil-cloths, &c. By a new advertisement in another column it will be seen that this firm has now on hand a larger and more complete stock than ever before and that they are prepared to offer the best of bargains iu everything in their line. Those of our citizens who are about to purchase cannot do better than to call on Messrs. Stone & Collin and examine for themselves. A lull assortment of foreign and domestic goods are kept always on hand, the former being iu many cases imported by the firm expressly for their own trade. Remember the place, No. 215 Superior street, Cleve land, Ohio. IVotice. AYe are requested to announce that there is now being formed, in this, together with the other towns of the county, a company of "Grant Cavalry Boys," and that those who may desire to join the command are requested to report to Orderly Sargeant K.

It is hoped that a full company will be formed, and all who may be able to do so are earnestly invited to co-operate. Uni forms will be furnished as soon as the com pany roll is full. Of the time and place at which the necessary mounted drills will be held, due notice will hereafter be given. Special attention is desired to tbe follow ing order. There will be a meeting of the "Grant Cavalry Boys" at Moody's Hall, Monday evening, September 23d, to perfect our company organization. A general attend ance is requested. By order Capt.J. B.

Political excitement still takes the di rection of public meetings and speech making, but whether all this effort will really effect a vote or have any percepta ble influence upou the general result may well be doubtful. At all events, however, it servs as a'safety valve for one's pent-up enthuasism and may answer a good pur pose in that way it in no other. The past week has not been as prolific in gatherings as those before, but perhaps this is more attributable to accidental in fluences than to any waniug interest. On Saturday last Judge G. X. Tuttle addressed meeting iu Mentor and the proceedings of the evening were enlivened by the presence of the Republican Glee Club. This Saturday evening the same gen tleman is announced to speak in LeRoy. Either the Liberals have been equally lax iu expressing their views or have failed to report. At all events we have known of no meetings on that side during the past week. One is announced, how ever, for this Saturday evening, in the school house in Black Brook, near the residence of Z. French, at which J. Pal mer and others will be present. And on the same evening the Greeley and Brown Club of this place hold a meeting at their room Moodey's Hall to which all are in vited. A mass meeting of Liberals aud Democrats is also announced to be held In the Public Park next Monday week, at which Gen. Thomas Ewing, Hon. J. R. Clayiner and Hon. George AA. Julian are to be present as speakers. Dr. E. 11, Kelley. In another column will be found a no tice of tbe death of Dr. L. H. Kelley a for mer resident of this place but who, for several years, has been a resident of Min nesota. We clip the following obituary notice from the columns of the Rochester Post, of date the 14th inst: Dr. L. H. Kellev, whose serious Illness we noticed some weeks ago, died at his residence at Owatouna on Monday. His remains were brought to this city and in terred in Oakwood Cemetary on Wednes day. Tbe funeral cortege, consisting ot the family of the deceased, was escorted from the "depot to the Cemetary, by the Masonic Lodge of this Jcity, and the cere monies at the grave were those of that Or der, with prayer by Rev. Mr. Rice. Dr. Jvelley was one oi me eany resi dents of Rochester. He moved here in the fall of 1857, and built Kelley's Block, which was the first business building, of brick. erected iu the place. He engaged in the publication ot the jfepuoucan, in partner ship with Mr. AV. H. Mitchell, and soon after, in 1863. removed to Owatonna aud was engaged in the publication of a pa- .'..11.- tl.nt ,.1......

For the past six months he has been confined to bis bed by a painful and in curable malady. Of the large lamiiy ot ir. Kelley, sever al are among our most respectable citi zens. Thev all receive the hearty sympathy of a large circle of friends in their severe oereavement. At a special communication of Roches ter Lodge No. 21, A. F., and A. M., held on the 11th inst., the following resolutions were unanimously aaopteu: Whereas It has nleased the Grand Master oi tne universe to remove oy ueatn our isrotner, L. H. Kelly, tbe tirst Masterof this Lodge: Resoloed. That deploring bis loss, we tender our heart-lelt sympathies to the bereaved iiimily of our deceased brother, and the Lodge of which he was a member, and shall ever cherish his memory as that of a worthy member of our or der. Tlie Souvenir. Since mailing the first number of our new monthly we have been frequently ask ed as to whether this one or that one would be entitled to receive it regularly, and in a general way as to how we proposed to offer it as a premium. We had supposed that all this had been sufficiently explain ed already, but as it seems we were mis taken, we submit the following, which we sincerely hope will prove sufficiently plain for any to understand : In October, 1871, we commenced giving steel plate engravings as premiums to sub scribers. In January we substituted tbe chromo of "Ducks," and these we contin ued to present to our patrons until the fif teenth of last July. At that date we with drew all other premiums and substituted a years' subscription to the Souvenir. This magazine will, therefore, be sent reg ularly each month, free ol charge, to the following persons : First. To all those who have subscribed for the Journal for one year and whose subscriptions beginsince July loth the date of the commencement of our second volume. Second. To all those who, their sub scriptions having expired on July 15th the end of the first volume have since that time renewed for one year. Third. To all tnose who shall, between this time and January 1st, 1873, subscribe for one year to the Journal. Fourth. To all of those who, their pre sent subscription expiring at any time be fore January, 1873, shall then renew their subscriptions for one year. To all who are included in either of these classes we shall forward the Souvenir gratuitously for twelve months. And in consideration of tbe great liberality of this offer we trust to receive the hearty co-ope ration of all our patrons in extending our list. Remember that it you will induce but one or two ot your friends, who do not al ready do so, to subscribe for the Journal, you will not only secure for them the beautiful present, but will place us under obligations which we shall try to repay by giving more and better reading for less money than can be procured anywhere else in the State.

Not many days since as a gentleman and his wife, of this place, named Wineh ell, were enjoying a ride on a lumber wagon, accommodated only with one board for a box, Mrs. Winchell manifested some fear of falling. Her husband eager to exalt the courage of his dear wife, caused the horses to run. . Alas! the wheel struck a stone and Mrs. AVinchell was thrown from the wagon alighting on another stone. Mrs. Winchell was con siderably injured by the accident but is recovering.

For the past few days there has been nothing or importance to send to your valuable paper, and only political news.

R., in this place, whicb is now inclosed roofed and partially'painted, and will, in a few days, be completed, is worthy of a more minute and accurate .description than has yet been given it. It is 60 feet ioug by 18 feet wide, with a platform 6 feet and roof projecting i feet wide extend ing around it. The posts are 14 feet high, though the cantract requires but 12 leet.

To avoid the delavs and annoyances which are of almost daily occurrence at the St. Clair Flats, it has been determined to have a competent pilot located there for the purpose of giving prompt attention to all steamers passing that thoroughfare, and pilot them safety over.

The Detroit Tribune has the following interesting items for vessel owners: "A number of vessels ou the lakes are intro ducing to their outfit what is denominated a "chain stopper," which, when carried out, will prove one of the most valuable appendages for preventing tbe parting of chain cables and loss of anchors that has ever been used. It causes a steady strain upon the chain by the elasticitv of the stopper, no matter how sudden or power ful the shock, ft is much to be wondered at whv so important an article has not been discovered before this by vessel builders. It has not failed in giving satis faction in every instance in which it has been tested. The new vessel built at East Saginaw by Captain Davidson, and sold a day or two since to the Winslows, was launched on Saturday afternoon last and christened the Kate Wmslow. The launch was a perfect success. The Northern Transportation Company Line of propellers, which the greater por tion of the present season have been de livering their freights from Chicago and Lake Superior at Sarnia, have withdrawn from that arranuemeut, and will m future. as formerly, extend their trips to )gd ens- burg via the welland canal.

Farwell & Co., shows it to be a valuable improvement The manufacturers have so much confi dence in its merits that they ofier to send it by mail on receipt of its price (2.00) and if not satisfactory, after two weeks trial, it may be returned and the money will be refunded. It is made and sold by the Leslie IlufHcr Company, of 840 AVabash Avenue, Chicago, who are also manufac turers of the Leslie Magic Ruffler, price $1.50, which has had a very large sale, and they offer it on the same terms. 61-3. DIED. KELLEY At Owatonna, Minn., on the 9th inst OK. Lu a, ivELLEY, agea m years. FINANCIAL. ItlOSETARY. Painesville, Sept 206 P. M. During the past week the condition of the lo cal money market has been by no means en couraging. In fact the condition of the market has been stringent for some time past in most quarters, and just now there is but little pros pect of relief. During the week just ended the demand for currency has been very active, and a Considerable amount of first-class paper has been presented for discount, which was necessa rily refused by the banks, they being busy at tending to their checks and the wants of regit lar customers, whose interests were paramount. Exchange has been in very limited supply, and rates have ruled firm and close. Gold is mani festing a good deal of friskiness and is going np the scale. Dispatches from New York report a panic in money matters in that market, with great excitement and the failures of several prominent houses, mostly stock brokers. The corner in gold continues to rule the Board, and premiums have reached ?i per cent, per day, while the stringency in financial circles has reached a pitch at which percent, per day has been demanded and received on loans. Stocks generally have been heavy and unset tled. On Thursday evening at the final close there was a reaction of to percent, from the highest point, except in Erie. The Post says that the bulls ape confident on Eric, Union Pa cific, Pacific Mail, and C. C. C. A I., and it is re ported that a corner will very soon be mode in the last three mentioned stocks. A report has been in circulation that the Cnion Pacific and Central Pacific roads are to be consolidated, but the report is not authenticated.

The condition of affairs remains in tbe same state as for several months, the market beiug dull and flat, without a desire on the part or buyers to take lots or to ofTer prices. The eastern markets remain stagnant, and manu facturers are still confining their purchases to small lots, which are to be found near at hand, and are employing no buyers with a design even of testing the views of western farmers. The dullness and indetiniteness of prices at this point render it possible to give only an approx imate quotation, which may be stated at SO to 55 cents, according to quality. Buyers are uni formly of the opinion that prices will probably advance before the 1st of January next, but are unable to place any definite date, or to predict the extent ot improvement. The only rule seems to lie for growers to hold their wool, as none would desire to sell at present prices, and tbe future gives encouragement sufficient to render such a course wise and proMable. Western Reserve Cheese Market. The following are billing prices of dealers up on orders, prices paid by the same to producers being from lc to 1.14c lower.

CLEVELAND MARKETS. . Clkvkland. Q' Sept. 90, ISM The butter market during the past week has been steady as regards both demand and price. The bulk of receipt, however, have shown a de cided falling off in quality, and a really choice article for table use is scarcely to be fonad in the market. . The Increased demand created by the late fair which brought thousands to the city. has been suuicient to consume a large proportion of that which was strictly merchantable, and most of the trade has been with local buyers. The cool weather, which has now made an ap pearance, promises well for shippers, as a more uniform quality is expected during the coming week, which will undoubtedly lower present quotations on choice, and decrease the propor tion of medium and lower grades, giving more satisfactory prices to the majority of consignors. The excitement which prevailed at our last re view of the cheese market, has entirely sub sided, and a state of depression become the uni versal rule throughout the country. AVith the advance in prices which the furor created, came a determination to the minds of factorvmen to prolH by "wo00810" " "ring dealers to their views, or allow the markets to remain bait! and their cheese upon the shelves. Every advance was met with an unyielding demand for higher prices, until, the excitement having subsided iu the East, and orders from the West and South having been withdrawn, dealers And themselves without stock, and, discouraged at the prospects, are in turn independent and resolved to let af fairs run their own course, without seeking to press business, or reconcile the difference which exists between themselves and producers. For the post four days, billing prices have steadily declined, and most orders have been billed at a lower figure than that required to attract the same quality of cheese from the factories. We regard an advance, at no distant day, entirely probable; but it will be established more grad ually, upon a more legitimate basis, and more permanent in its character. In the present state ot the market, paying prices nre merely nomi nal, and will remain thus until dealers can either secure concessions from factory in en, or discover better opportunities for placing pur chases at higher prices than at present prevail. The general markets have been quiet, although as a rule prices have been well sustained anil there has been no marked decline in any of the quotations. Flour and grain especially have been steady, and generally there has been' no movement of interest. What changes there are will be found below. .

Prints remain active and are iu short supply for many styles. Printing cloths are strong and active. Cotton and woolen flannels are in good request at quoted prices.
