Several stores have been found open
and been attended to by the night watch

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.

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

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

pleasant flavor it was a curiosity no less
from its pertectness than from its size.

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

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
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
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
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.

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,
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

AYe are requested to announce that there
is now being formed, in this, together with

of "Grant Cavalry Boys," and that those
who may desire to join the command are
requested to report to Orderly Sargeant K.
' B. Clarke, at the store of P. Pratt & Co.,
Painesville, for the purpose of enrollment.
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

which the necessary mounted drills will be

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

which Gen. Thomas Ewing, Hon. J. R.

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

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

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

one or two ot your friends, who do not al

by giving more and better reading for less
money than can be procured anywhere
else in the State.

off is weakened; hence time is all import

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.

Since our last exhibit or this branch of our
commerce, there has been no change worthy of
note. 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.

The following are billing prices of dealers up

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. . We quote:

In dry goods the market shows a falling oil
from the heavy trade of last week, but it is still
active. The price of cotton goods are well sus

supply for many styles. Printing cloths are
strong and active. Cotton and woolen flannels
are in good request at quoted prices. Foreign
goods are less active but steady in price. The
flurry in the gold market creates some excite
ment among importers as bearing on the pros
