FIFTH ANNUAL STATEMENT OF THE OPERATIONS AND RECEIPTS OF THE AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY, IN EASTERN OHIO, FOR THE YEAR ENDING MARCH 31ST, 1861. f. r .' t"7T . ,' '- j ; It is expected that at the lose of each fiscal yearjpf tbei American Bible Society, its asenta will present to its Board of Managers, report at their, labors, for the year. jFomktitis general report, which U annually transmitted; it has also been my custom, to prepare an abstract, for publi cation in the local papers on my field, that the numerous friends and patrons of the cause, may have set before .them from year o year, at least an outlina p( thcplai pur fSned. and the results attained. Another of jthceociety's years has .now closed; and 1 1 ,hveLocently transmitted my account, and .a detailed report of the labors of the year, j It has been vtie peculiarly .beset with, dif Asultie tol iliiaontagementa, fcpt4only a rising from the long continued pressure in -matters f a monetary aatsre, but likewise from internal commotions,, and the highly excited state -of the public mind in many localities. " There can be no doubt, as to the reflect influence, which all questions, that are calculated ia . asitate the. nublic mind, whether' of a political, of moral na-j -tore, exert upon the benevolent enterprises .of the day. The country and the church, have felt these influences; and from almost .every field ofchriBtian enterprise and be wvolencA' there Jias been: 'yeporteJ, ai con sequent falling off in receipts. It is there fore, certainly, an occasion for devout grat itude, to the Great Disposer lf all' events, that we are'enabled to report from Eastern Ohio, notwithstanding all these obstacles, a decided increase over any preceding year, in the Soppry'g operarioM. r Oar nioat sas) gnine expectations hau bectilnoxe thaa re alized; andfhese results, we" believe,' are attributable in a great measure, to tie ex xellence of the system now in operation.

They institute a noble army of fellow laborers. JI any of- tliiaisla timect service to the cause, xj expionng ineir rwsjxics, a tnppljing destitute households with the Word of God. and soliciting donations the cause. In this waj, the work has not only been greatly systemised. bat has also been conducted, with comparatively little expense; the local agents receiving no com pensation for the services rendered by tnam. " ' y ....... , ... We also rejoice to know, that the Word of life has been greatly multiplied :aDl diffaseJ among the masses. ' Nearly every one of these Branch societies, is farui-hed with suitable and well assorted Deposit ory of Bib'es and Testaments; where thej are sold at the Society's cost prices, and from which, the needy are supplied, with out money and without price, '. In the great work which the American Bible Society is accomplishing in the world, wc regard this domesttd feature in its operations, as one of notorial importance. Repeated and well attested facts, are almost daily occnr rinft which to to show, that the work.of home supply, must be a continuous one. Our population, is a. .remarkably fiuctua tinz," and rapidly increasing one; and new cases of destitution are constantly arising. Upwards of 16000 families have been sop-. plied with the Scriptures, by the Society, in this State, during the past year, who were found destitute. In a single County in Eastern Ohio, upwards of 800 families, were found in the same ' deplorable condi tion and there has scarcely been a Coun ty,-where the destitutions might not be numbered by hundreds. We are glad to know that the iJible bas been kindly and thankfully received. The cases of refusal to receive it, have been comparatively few; and the experiences of all our distributors confirm the tact, that there is an increasing disposition amonj the masses of the people, to receive and i i . - , i i read me rioie ior memseives. Tf rejoice in these tokens of God's blessing upon the work; and feel more than ever, that the good accomplishing and yet to be accomplished, is by no means to be measured alone, by .the .collections that have been secured to the cause. . The amount raised and remitted, during the year, to the American Bible Society, from my field, . (which comprises 22 coun ties in Eastern Ohio, 'or one fourth of the State,) is about $13000. This is exclu sive of all expenses growing out of the la bors of County Agents, and the work of applying the destitute, and exceeds by a bout thirty-five per cent, the remittance of last year. In addition to this, about 20,- j 000 copies of the Holy Scriptures have I been put in circulation, and nearly 3000 destitute households -supplied A slight increase in the agency service, has thus, besides placing the Scriptures in many des titute families, brought into the . treasury of the Sbcietv a far more than proportion- the friends of the cause, that what has been expended, in carrying on this impor tant work, has been sufficient in the in the re suits attained, amply to justify the Socie ty's policy. - : V ' ' ' " BBJLHCH SOCIETIES IN TRUMBULL CO. .it The Bible cause las been greatly advan ced in this County the past year by the or ganizatioa of branch societies in the vari ous Townships.

It is a healthy sign that journalists and letter-writers of all parties are begining to cry out against ' the silence and appar ent inaction of the Government These writers represent with more or less faith fulness the sentiment uppermost in the public mind, and there seems in this case In a ffnrr ii rfrnn f lftipA to havp An r na. tional troubles: decided in some way. One thins or other, but quick,' the public shouts to the Administration. '. Now, one or two alternatives which is thus attempted to euforee upon the President is to make instant war upon the rebels. The ' other is to Submit to them, acknowledge the independence of a "South ern Confederacy," and : make a lasting peace of it These are the two "policies," one of which it is supposed he must adopt; and journalists make haste to accuse him oi navmg no policy, Decau.se eviueniiy ne does not lean, so far as can be seen, to of these.' : .-i There seems; to us in all this a serious misapprehension oi the duties ana powers oi ue neaa oi me reaerai government T' 1 1 n . . .

But in a hepubhc all this id changed. nere me peopie are supreme, in meir name, and by their delegates, the Govern- ment was iormed, and me laws were maac and executed. ' -We the people of the Un ited States," ordained and established the Constitution; and as the Government was created by the ' genera consent of the peo ple, it is maintained by their general con sent, and can be changed (or abrogated, for that is also a change ) only by them. ine President of the United states bas no authority to change the form of the Gov ernment. Neither has he authority to say it shall be preserved. He is not the State; he is not the will of the people, but only the doer ot mat wilL .In fact, he is litUe more than the moderator of the assembled nation. .. .. ; If. therefore,, the Nation acting in a constitutional, manner should assemble! by its delegates, and by them declare this Union dissolved, it is clear that the 1 resi dent would have no right or authority to pnt his will against such action. But it must be remembered that he is the executive officer; and. holding that of fice it is his first and highest duty to see that whatever is done for any purpose especially for so important a purpose as the dissolution , of the Government is in ac cordance with the regulations of the Con stitution, which is, until legally abrogated. the supreme law of the land; anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding. There is no doubt that when a majority of the people of this country are in favor of breaking up this Government they have a perfect right to do it But they have no right to do this in anyot'-er way than that prescribed by the Constitution. Howevor treat the major ity in favor of such a measure, ' the act of dissolution must be performed in such le gal manner as the Constitution prescribes. This can only be dene after fair and tcm- rTjiMf: v v i r aj,, J a national " convention The decision of such a convention is finaL From it there is no appeal But without it any pro- ceedings on the part of the people of one or any number of States, intended to des- troy - the Union, are simple rebellion and criminal usurpation of power, whether cal-! led secession or insurrection, conspiracy or co-operation, does not matter. , Such a movement however formidable, it is the bounden duty of the President to put down, at all hazards and at any ex- pense.- He cannot coerce the public will. But he is a traitor to his countrymen if he permits the Government which the people of this country have established to be des- troyed, and the laws which they have de- supreme to be changed, in any other than a legal manner. He has no right to maintain the Government against the of the people: but as the head of the na-. tion heought te see that whatever the na-j tion does is done peaceably, regularly and constitutionally, inluch manner that the will not only of the majority but of the minority is heard and respected. ' This is the ground m fwhich Mr. Lin-1 coin placed himself more distinctly in his Inaugural Message. - Standing here, and! with this clear conception of the duty be- fore him, he could not do differently than! he has. He has doubtless acted on the fullest information in the present cirsia- A certain latitude must be permitted him; no good is obtained by irging him to measures of the wisdom or follyof which! must be the best and only judge Mr. Lincoln is believed to be an honest clear-i headed man.

When it becomes nec- - essary, we believe he will not fail to do so; and in doing so, we are confident he will i have with him the prayers, the arms and the means of the nation. We believe that as he has 'shown hitherto a patience and reticence which can proceed only from a heart full of courage and a hard master of the position; so, if the traitors of the South, scorning . all appeal to the people, choose blindly to rush to battle, he will meet them and beat them, and win for himself the gratitude not of a section or a generation; uub vk a uatiuu auu vi vcuvurj. BEAUTIFUL WOMEN. ent kinds of beauty, and it is a great mis either take to imamne thai it mnaistj whollv. or ; Every woman has a right to be beauti ful; that is the secret of her power, her mission, the key which unlocks her destiny, But while she has a right to be beautiful. she has no right to be its opposite that is an injustice to society, which has a rniht to expect from her its loveliness, its grace .nd jta attract on. There are manv differ- eVen mainly, of color, form, or texture. There is the beantv of innocence and the . - y beantv of truth, the beantv of childhood and the beauty of the matron, the beauty m -m . ... 0t wid m and the beauty of simplicity. tho lowest kind of beauty is that merely uhvsical nerfection and srTlendor which re- . . . . 1 . ceives no aid from voice, look, or expression, but it is marred by the action of the mind HDon its fair and smooth surface, iust as . . . ' the mud is stirred in a shallow pool by any slight circumstance which touches its denths. The ideals oftha ancient Doets are all beautiful, but their characteristics are distinct and separate, so that there is no flat and wearisome sameness; and the beautv of form with which thev arc en- dowed is simpcly the vehicle of expression 0f the mental idea they wish to convey. . una, the serene matron, the Drilliant co- quctte, the imperious queen, the tender and the delicate maiden, the timid youn 1 W1te. the thouahtful nurse, have all an in- idividuality of their own, to which their outward appearance is the visible sign and mdex. Their dress should natural v eor- j respond t0 these mental and phisycal indi- cations, so as to nreserve a sense of musi cal harmony and fitness throughout the entire structure. There is nothing that disenchants so soon as the discovery of folly; ignorance, stupidity, bad temper, or vile passions beneath a fair and seductive form. The possession of any fine and no ble quality, on the contrary, illuminates the plainest features and the dullest com plexion much better than scores of eostly powders and cosmetics. Women who de sire to be beautiful make a great mistake in trying to inert ase their attractions, or to make themselves eharming, after any oth er person's pattern. What is adapted to one style would destroy the affect of another; and for every woman to adopt an arbitrary mode or standard of dress is fatal to the aggregate effect of feminine beauty, whose great charm is variety. It is nat ural to love admiration, power and influ ence, and almost all women may not only obtain these but rctiin them, by being themselves in the very highest and most perfect sense of which they are capable, in stead of a weak and diluted imitation of sombody else. ; When the freshness of youth and girlhood has departed, let them be succeeded, naturally, by the matured graces of womanhood, and these by the dignity of middle age. The affectation of pretty coquetries and juvenile simplicity by sallow . specimens of ancient spinster-hood-Mr worse, by women who bear the name of. wife and motherhood not only outrage all true ideas of taste and propri ety, but deprieve- those who indulge in them of their natural claims to attention and consideration. When all women are natural and true, then they will be all beautiful. . . REACTION IN MISSISSIPPI. People.

[From the St. Louis Democrat ] THE FABIAN POLICY A FAILURE. - The results of the recent elections, from St. Louis to Boston, must be candidlv ac cepted as a verdict against the passive pol icy of the Administration. That policy, though conceived in the most patriotic and fraternal spirit, has, to all appearance, de veloped a feeling of hoatiliry, rather than of devotion to the Constitution; ; Instead of that ardor of attachment to the Union, whicbtas hitherto distinguished the great body of the people in the Border. States, we find tho reconstruction theory on the the b sis of the Montgomery Constitution extending rapidly, though silently. The vital principle of allegiance to established order is, it must be confessed, all but over turned;, and revolution, which is prima facie an evil, seems to be embraced for its own sake, as if it were a good in itself. Fassiviry in the presence of defiant aggres sion, however much it may have to recom mend it when regarded from a certain etb- ical point of view, is a novel and untried expedient in statesmanship; and certainly the existence of the Federal Union is too much to stake on such an experiment Better, far, to rely on the means which have so often proved successful for the pres ervation of order, and which every form of government has been obliged to employ. Public opinion protested against any fur ther concession to bold and incessantly ag gressive rebellion. Lither secession is right or the failure to assert the authori ty of the United States whenever the laws demand that it shall be enforced, is wrong morally as well as politically wrong. btrange as it may sound in these days, all power is from God, and the ruler who re fuses to draw the sword when there is good cause for drawing it is as guilty as the ru ler who draws it without good cause Quakerism or quietism will not always suf fice to govern either empires or republics. How little the conciliatory policy of the Administration has been regarded by the rebels, is shown by the armaments, float ing battene8 and earthcrn fortifications which threaten Sumter and Pickens from all points of the ccmpasa. While the Federal Government Las borne with all things, the rebels have never relaxed in their preparations for war, and at the very mnmonf t oii rrtmmiaoinnnro e a tYttW am called, are asking for the peaceable evacu - ation of those posts, the besieging forces are cutting of all supplies from the garri- sons, and redoubling their warlike labors, Such being the palpable facts of the case, the news tkia morning indicating that the Federal Government has abandoned its passive policy, and resolved to meet the anarchial hordes who have sworn to de- it with their own weapons, will be hailed with joy by the loyal and conserva- tive classes in every part of the country. Among the immediate salutary effects of the new policy, will be an abatement at least of the terrorism by which the rebels have, so far, carried out their plans in all ; the seven States. Stifled loyalty will find its voice as soon as the hand of the assail- ant is taken from its throat Let us, therefore, have a vigorous and firm policy henceforth;' and whether it shall be fully successful or not ' (we believe it will) in restoring the Union, it will at least justify the Government and the people of the States which adhere to the Union, before the world and posterity. ' ; j I THE HUNGARIANS RIPE FOR REVOLT. VOLT. The Vienna correspondent of the Lon-' don Times writes under date of March 8th: "All the private intelligence received Pesth tends to prove that the breach the Hungarian nation and the impcrial dynasty las been greatly widened bv the rescripts of the 26th of February, and the people here maintain that nothinfor but brute force will bring the Hungarians to their senses. The question now at issue between Austria and Hungary is such a delicate one, and the maintenance of the integrity of the Austrian Empire is so very desirable, that my private opinions are in general expressed with some little reserve, but I now feel bound to remark that the new constitution affords no guaranty to the Hungarians that the money which they may contribute to the necessities of the State will not be expended for the main- tainanoe of an army which is sadly out of nronorbon to the resources of the empire. The protest made by the Municipality of I'esth against the introduction ot martial law into the city and district of Flume has led to misunderstanding between the Hun garians and the Croats. The latter main-1 mat the Flume belongs to the kingdom of Croatia, ' and accuse the Hungarians of displacing as grasping and overbearing a spirit as they did in 1848 and 1849. The Austrians are well pleased to see that the Hungarians, Croats and Serbs are be ginning to quarrel among themselves, but they cannot venture to hope that the two last mentioned nationalities will again fight with their neighbors in defence of absolutism." RELIGIOUS INTELLIGENCE. Tin M.E-Secesstox. The N.Y. Chris tian Advocate has a lengthy editorial on the secession movement of the Baltimore Conference. It says: The battle must be fought ever again, and if the Border main tain its present attitude and temper, the Church must be divided; the only question is. Where shall the cleavage be? The views of our brethren ia certain quarters are be coming less and less anti-Slavery; the views of the rest of the Church are those held by the fathers. It seems impossible that the North and West can recede from the ground they have taken; they cannot hold fellowship with brethren who are, unwill ing to discriminate between mercenary and allowable slaveholdine.

THE MONROE DOCTRINE.

It was a new proposition and a great one. It raised the the whole continent President Mon- What was the Jlonroe doctrine? After the South American Spanish possessions revolted from Spain, the latter appealed to the Catholic Towers of LuroDe with whom she was allied to assist her to subjugate them to her sway. Gen. Bolivar, who was tho Garabaldi in the revolution, appealed .point whether the United States would consent to stand as Lioerty s liumpion roe was favorably impressed with the jus tice of Bolivar's appeal, and so expressed himself in a message to Congress. Noth ing more was ever done upon the subject but that 6U22estion has ever since been called The Monroe Doctrine.

HOW THE PUBLIC BUSINESS IS DONE. a Waahincten writer to the Nashville Patriot gives this graphie description of, w in whipb nnh he business is done : The way the uovernment gets 113 wors . . . - . i done is curious. An illustration, you and your family meet in Convention of the whole and adopt a resolution auinoriziug the construction of a hen-coop in your back yard. You at once appoint me super intendent of the Work, putting a thousand - . 1 i or two of dollars in bans; for me w cnecu on. I get you to appoint my brother-in-; law chief engineer. ' I appoint two of my brothers assistant superintendents, and my brother-in-law appoints two of his brothers assistant en gineers all at your expense.

We wind up the report with the announcement that the site of the hen coop has been selected, and call for another appropriation to prosecute the work, which we assure you will be done with "vigor." Yoa place another thousand or two in bank, and we employ two hundred hands at three dollar? a day to transport seventy- five cents worth of lumber (which costs vou under our management about ten times that many dollars) to the place of operations, which requires about taree months.

COAL OIL FOR THE HAIR. It is said, with what truth we do not know, that in addition to the other vir tues belonging' to the coal oil now being pumped in such extraordinary abundance in western Pennsylvania, another virtue has been discovered by a distinguished chemist to be possesseed by this mineral oil. which will, in the estimation of some, quite throw the others in the shade. T In a word, the oils, just as they are pumped out of the earth are said to be a certain cure for baldness; wherever hair has ever grown hair may be made to grow again by its application; where it is getting thin, the oil will strengthen it; where it is turning gray, the oil will renew its youth and bring it back to its natural color. , lgs, toupees and scratches are forever rendered null, void, and of no account whatever. Nature, in her bounty, has superseded for ever all the necessity for the aruhcaJ and flimsey disguises. The oil is said to renew the hair on simple vegetable principles by re-invigorating the bulbs beneath the scalp and renewing the energy. Should this discovery prove to be all that is claimed for it what changes there will be wrought in the human family long years of vener ableness will be taken away, and miracles of youthful vigor will be wrought in ap pearance. Could same medicament in Na tures storehouse be found which would re move the frosts of age as well as the frosts of time eome catholicon which would res store constitution broken, sight dimmed, step feeble, pulse slow and faltering then we would be prepared to enter on that long vista of longevity, of millenial bliss fullness, to which it is promised, time, af ter the preliminary theorys of parturation, will soon give birth. .
