To this end we have la our employ a gentleman of many years' experience in the Dry Goods trade, both at wholesale and retail, who acts as onr buyer, and resides in New York all the year round.

JEWELS BLOCK, Adjoining the Tod House, Comer . Federal Street and Public Square, "5TOTJI7CSTOWIT, O. C. on J. THE CHRONICLE. OBERLIN COLLEGE. OBERLIN, May 13, '73. Ed. CnROSiCLE : The spring term of this college closed on Satur. day last, and the summer term begins to-morrow. The attendance last term was quite large. I believe the lar gest there has been in a spring term since the war. There were nearly nine hundred students in all tbe de partments. If to this number you add about two or three hundred telegraph and commercial students you will per ceive that we have several young people in this place. A great many prophesied after the close of tbe war that Oberlin College had accomplished its mission and that it would never again enroll as large a number of students as It had in former times. . The accounts of the present treasurer are far from con firming the predictions of those would be prophets. The last week of the spring term furnishes us with a fine literary feast and last term was no exception to the rule. Wednesday, May 7th, the Jun ior class held its exhibition. The ex erclses consisted of three English ora tions, one Latin, one Greek, and Discussion. The productions were all fair. Ou Thursday, the Theolog ical department gave one ot the best exhibitions J have ever attended. Friday, the Union Exhibition of the College societies took place. For this exercise each of three literary socle ties chooses two of its best speakers. Consequently at the exhibition which is always well attended six of the' best speakers in college appear. The productions were fully up to the standard, which is by no means a low one The Musical Union under the lead' ership of Professor Rice has begun preparation for commencement. which begins July 81st and closes Agust 6th. Those who have ever heard the concerts given by this body of.sttgers always look for a rare en- tertaiBtnent when they take place. I believe no other attraction draws more people to Oberlin commence ments than the music Some two or three months ago J saw a statement In your columns rel stive to Mount Union College, which I have been waiting for some one to notice. As no one has seen fit to do so allow me to say a word concerning it, The statement I refer to was. if I remember it rightly, that Mount Cn ion College has more students in her regular college classes than any other college in Ohio, and that but two or three colleges ia the United States have a larger number. Now I have no desire to disparage tbe great work watch that college is doing, neither have I the desire nor time to discuss tbe relative values of different college eourees,ibutltdoes seem that a great many persons who read that article might attach undue, prominence to that institution. How is it that she has so many regular college students? Perhaps H may be owing to the cur riculum. Any institution with large number of students, can have large advanced classes if the course of study is made easy. All persons who understand the requirements of our American colleges know that to enter a first class institution requires a long and thorough preparation ir the Latin and Greek languages. This it is wbich keeps the' regular classes email. Remove this barrier and num bers will increase rapidly. By look' ing at catalogues of Western Reserve and Oberlin college it will be seen that to be admitted to tbe Freshmen class, requires nine terms (three years) of Latin and six terms (two years) of Greek. The eastern colleges require still more. The Mount Un ion catalogue puts the requirement for admission in language, at one or two terms of Latin and no Greek. The standard for admission might be noticed In another way. A few years since a student who could not entei the Freshmen class of this col lege went to Mount Union and en tered as a full fledged Sophomore. When these facts are taken into con sideration a reason may be discovered for the large number of students in regular college classes. TRUMBULL. CONGREGATIONAL CONFERENCE. Editor Chronicle Trumbull and Mahoning Congregational Con ference, met in Bloom field, May 7th and 8th, and was called to order by Dea. Benj. Maltby, moderator for the past year. It rained most of the time during Conference, yet the sessions were well attended. All the appoint ed speakers were present, except one, who had removed to Iowa. - Rev. Wm. P. Edwards, of Mineral Ridge, was received as a member of Confer ence Rev. M. Hobart was dismissed by letter on his request. Rev. J. H. Jones was chosen Moderator, and Rev. J. B. Davison, Register. Dea. J. Hickok; Rev. J. H. Jones and Dea. S. Fansler, Home Missionary Committee - The essays by Dea. C. J. Hickok and Rev. R. Page, on "Duties of the pastors and churches to young Chris tians" were well prepared and heard with interest. They emphasized the duty of care and watchfulness over tbe formation of the habits In all the beginning of christian life especially among children. - On Wednesday eve an address was made by Rev. C. N. Pond, in. refer ence to the "strong obligation resting the church to establish and sustain prayer, money, dec, institutions that furnish a positively christian education." Addresses followed by Rev. 6. Manning, on "The demand for effort of christians to save our na tion for Christ ' ; by Rev. J. C. Bur nell, on "Assisting feeble churches to build houses of worship ;" bv Rev. H. Jones, on "Educating men for the ministry." ', Thursday forenoon was mostly oc cupied by reports of the religious con dition of the churches, and a discus sion of their duties to one another. Rev. C.N. Pond, gave an excellent address on this subject, showing the strong obligation on the churches to co-operate in helping each other, es pecially by attending conferences, by as in le visiting one another, and by helping the weak with money, and by hold ing fellowship meetings among them whenever they should need it - It was unanimously resolved "That we are all willing, when practicable, to assist a church In fellowship meet ings, when the Church nr the Home Missionary Committee desire us so to do." In the afternoon essays were read by Dea. W. C. Savage and Rev. J. B. Davison, on "Systematic Benevo lence " These strongly urged a large Increase of contributions to religious purposes, that those contributions be given by thorough system, that each individual, young and old, give by system, and if possible according to 1. Cor. 16 : 2. "on the first day ofeveiy week ," that it be done as an act of re ligious worship, and that all be urged to acknowledge Christ's claim to a definite proportion of their income, in all ordinary case to be at least one tenth. Then followed an earnest discussion of the subject. Rev- J. C. Burnell gave an interesting account of tha "Revenue system" recently adopted by the-church in West Far mington, by which they intend to raise all the money needed for sup port of the minister and other church work, and for benevolent purposes. Each man, woman and child deposi ting such sum as they see fit each Saobath, in a box in the vestibule. The discussion was postponed until evening, and Conference united in celebrating the Lord's supper, Rev. John Holway and S. Manning ad ministering the sacrament, assisted by Deas. Benj. Maltby and C. J. Hickok. In the evening the above discussion was continued, and the following resolutions were adopted unanimously. "Whereas : We have long thought that giving to replenish tbe Lord's treasury should be systematized, and now believe that weekly giving for religious purposes is in accordance with tbe teachings of the New Testa ment, and will be found both con venient and profitable ; therefore, Retolvtd.

Tbe first locomotive was patented twenty years ago. - Driving only one ear. if litthtiv loaded It did very wen but when the load it drew was beavl er than its own weight, lis wheels would not bite that is, they would turn ronud and round without ad vancing. Hence a cow-catoner was needed behind to guard against cattle runninir into it in tbe rear. It seem ed at first Impossible to make a less weitrht move atrreateronan upgrade; and. for 27 years alterward, no one invented an engine aoie to uraw three times its own weight. At the foresent day, however, locomotives sweep along with trains more pon derous by 15 or times man tney are themselves. One means of gain' ing this vast increase of power for the locomotive, was by dividing tne load. It was found, that an engine nowerlesa to stir five times its weight Otjreignt Wuen couveutiateu iu uuc car, could readily draw it when dis tributed in a dozen cars loosely shack led together. It was heavier tnan each ainsrle oar : and It had overcome the inerua of eacn one, a moment Be fore it encountered the inertia or an' other. It was thus more than a match for each car taken singly : and, pal ling them successively, it drew after it a train as long as a comet, and the farther it ran the more strength It had to run further. Here was the story of little David over again. Ordinari ly the stripling's weight, as ne tola Goliath, was one hundred and twen ty, but whenever ne got maa ne welched a ton. Moreover, the en gine forced tbe momentum acquired bv everv car It naa Btarteu, to aweu its own potency in overcoming tbe resistance of all that remained eull motionless. This railroad achievement (ma king a light engine draw a heavy train), if not so common would seem miraculous: ana it is analogous to an expedient for securing a farm which equally simple and equally efilca cious. It is this : 'Divide your pay ments.' Bavinr. as 4,55 settlers have boushtof the Burllneton and Missouri River Road in Iowa or Ne braska, within the last three years, on ten years' credit, and at six per cent, interest, you pay in eieveu iu stallrcenta spread over half a life time. the first not due till the be- rinning of the third year. Besides, every acre you improve adds to your rut vims t inwer. as the heauwav or ev ery moving car reinforces the tractile energy of tne locomouve. , 1 I lO-O in rjnrcnaseB njwivKun 101 uwu- inar is due on the principal until the betrlnniDK oi tne mty year, auu tutu onlv one seventh annually.

On the 8th of October, 1871, in lati tude 81 38', longitude 61s 44', Captain Hall died of apoplexy, and was bur led on shore, where they erected a wooden cross to mark his grave He had recently returned from a north, era sledge expeditioj, in which he bad attained the latitude of Id'. He seemed in his usual health, and Lad called the crew into the cabin to encourage them with hopes of future rewards, and stimulate them to re newed exertion, when he was sudden ly stricken down and expired, to the great grief of those around, to whom he had endeared himself by his kind ness and devotion. ADVENTURES OF THE SURVIVORS. In September, 1S71, the Polaris en tered winter quarters, and left August 12, 1872. The ice was very heavy, and set in a southern direction. She was forced south, and so continued drift ing till Captain Tyson and party were driven from her. The sledge party crossed Kane's Po lar Sea, which they pronounced to be a strait about fifteen miles wide. There was an appearance of open wa ter to the north. - The rescued party suffered very muck . during their dreary drift from hunger and cold. For tne last two months they ate raw seal and polar bear as they could get it. When MET BY THE TIGRESS, they showed evident signs of their great sufferings, but during tbe nine days they have been ,on board they have improved vastly, and are now in fair health. The party is in charge of the United States Consul, and arrived at St. Johns on Monday. STATEMENT OF CAPTAIN TYSON. On the 24th of August, 1871, we left Tessinsack and went through Smith's Sound. We succeeded in getting as far north as latitude 82s 16', when we returned and wintered at Polaris Bay, latitude 81 38', longitude 61 44'. We were frozen up until the 5th of Sent ember. On tha 10th of October Cap tain nail surtea on a sieaire tourney north, and returned on the 24th, when he was taken sick, and died on the 8th of November. He was buried on the 11th. The attack that carried him off was said to be apoplexy. We passed the winter at Polaris Bay. On the 8th of June, 1872, we attempted to reach the north with two boats. We hauled our other boat on shore, and returned overland on the 8th of July. We started for home on the 12th of An gust, and on the 15th were beset with ice In latitude 80" 02'. We drifted from there down to latitude 77 35', wnen we encountered a neavy soutn west gale, the ship being under heavy pressure On tbe night of tbe 15th we commenced landing provisions, tc, on tne ice, THE VESSEL BEING REPORTED LEAKING. INQ very badly at times. We continued landing provisions for two or three hours, when the pressure, ceased went on board tbe Vessel and asked the sailing master if the vessel was making any more water tnan usuaL He reported that she was not. I then went to the pumps and ascertained that she was not making any more than she was doing all summer. BREAKING OF THE ICE. I went on the Ice again and shortly after it began to crack, ana in a few minutes afterwarda broke in many pieces. The vessel broke from her fastenings, and was soon LOST TO SIGHT IN THE DARKNESS AND STORM. On the broken ice were most of our provisions to sustain the party through the winter, and seeing nothing of the vessel, we attempted to reach the shore. In hopes of finding natives to assist us in llvlne tbrougn tne winter. Getting about half way to the shore with our heavily laden boats, our pro gress became hard by the drifting ice, and I was compelled to haul on the ice again. PROVISIONS SAVED. At this time I succeeded in saving fourteen cans of pemmican, eleven and a half bags of bread, ten dozen one and two pound can or meat and soup. fourteen bams, one small bag of choc olate, weighing twenty pounds, some muak ox skins, a tew blanket, a num ber of rifles and abundant ammuni tion. In the morning, knowing that I had - NOT PROVISIONS ENOUGH, and other articles of food, clothing, compasses, crc. on tbe abatement of tbe gale I endeavored to shoot as many seals as possible, both for food, light and fuel, but could only get three, owing to bad weather having set in. supposed the wind to be about sou' west, Ou its clearing up I found my self within about eight miles of what supposed to be the east coast, and about thirty or forty miles below the ship. The ice being weak, I could not transport boats ana provisions to land uutil it grew stronger. While here t discovered my otber boat, bread, Ac, and saved alL The ICE GREW FIRM. I made another attempt to reach the shore, carrying everything in the boats, and dragging them on their keel. The ice being exceedingly rough we stove both boats. We suc ceeded on the 1st of November in get ting about HALF WAY TO SHORE. Night came on us and very stormy weather. : in the morning tbe ice was broken' and we were drilling south ward verv fast. We saw no more land for many days, bad weather continu ing all through the month of Novem ber. We built snow houses and made ourselves as comfortable as w could. We were ten white men, two Esqui maux, two women and five children in all. We succeeded in killing a few seals, which furnished us with light and fuel with which to warm our scanty allowance of food through the darkness of an Arctic winter. In the latter part of February we lived prin cipal! v upon birds, ana in marcn com menced to catch seals. Through that month we supported ourselves on of BEARS' AND SEALS' FLESH, wasting neither skin nor entrails. We collected enough food In this way last us until the middle of May, had we not been driven to sea by a strong westerly sale In the latter part March, our floe piece being then reduced from five miles in circumfer to about twenty yards iu diame ter. We left tne piece on the 1st ol April, and abandoned nearly all of our meat, a large amount of ammuni tion, clothing, skins and other arti cles, taking a portion of the meat in the boat, which we were obliged to throw overboard on account of the boats being so deeply laden. I re gained A of OUTER EDGE OF THE PACK ice on tbe 3d of April, and succeed ed in getting a little further in on the pack, tin tne tin a neavy nortneast gale set in, a heavy sea running under the ice, wbich broke it in small pieces, that we had to live on small pans, we could not put the boat out, nei - tber could we find seals for food, and we were REDUCED ALMOST TO STARVATION. On the 21st of April we sighted a polar bear. Every person was ordered lie down and imitate the seal, while the two Esauimaux secreted them selves behind a piece of ice, enticlnn the bear near enoush to us to kill him. A few days after this we got boat in the water and worked our way we 4 and southwest, and contin ued to work every opportunity to the westward, in hopes of reaching the Labrador coast and getting temporary relief. We were : al as PICKED UP BY THE STEAMSHIP TIGRESS. '- ' "'- Captain Bartlett, on tbe 3fth of April, in latitude 53 35' north, longitude 55 west, or near Wolf Island, and about forty miles from land. Tbe Polaris is- now without boats, ha vino lost two in trying to get north in the sprfngof. A PROVIDENTIAL MEETING The Tigress fell in with the party in a dense fog, and providentially struck the very floe on which they were, otherwise they must have per ished. They all seem tolerably well. Captain Tyson complained of swelled legs and feet, but nothing serious is the matter with him. When they left the Polaris all on board were in good health. . . . , HOW THE POLARIS LEFT THEM. In reference to the way In which tha Polaris got away from the party which was rescued from off the ice berg. Captain Tyson states that he felt little anxiety at first, thinking she would soon come to their relief. " I set my colors," he said, "as she steamed down along the shore, but tbe vessel was soon lost to sight ia tbe bend of the land, and behind what I took to be Northumberland Island. The piece of ice I was on commenced drifting southward as the wind hauled to the northeast, opening a little bay to the northeast of Northumberland Island. I saw the vessel in tbe har bor there; her sails were furled, no smoke was issuing from her smoke stack that I could see. 1 then attempt ed to bring my boats across the floe in an easterly direction, HOPING TO FIND WATER, and reach the shore. I succeeded in dragging one boat across, took the water and attempted to reach the shore some distance below the vessel. We were then drifting very fast, and the gale was blowing fresh, with great violence, from the northeast, and snowing very fast and drifting. I was driven back on the ice again and com pelled to haul my boat out. Night closed on me ana carried us to the southwest. In tbe morning we were about thirty miles southwest of where the ship went in harbor. A heavy sea was running, which broke up my floe piece, separating us from six bags of bread and one boat. I saw a vessel under steam and canvas roundrog a point to the northwest. Thinking she would come to our relief I jrave myself no extra anxiety, but soon w were doomed to disappointment, and. rrom that time until the Tigress rescued us, we never got a glimpse of tne roiaris." ....... SKETCH OF CAPTAIN HALL. Captain Hall was an. old Arotle ex plorer, but owed his distinction chief ly to his search for tne remains or tbe Sir John Franklin expedition. - The absorbing theory of his life was the existence or an open rriiar sea, wnicn he felt it was perfectly possible to reach by crossing its iee-bonnd mar' gin on sledges. - Captain Hall wrote and lectured a good deal on tneeuu- ject of the North Pole, and; like ail men imbued with singleness of pur pose, he made bis way in tne long ran to the attention or tne public ' lnaj- ly Congress voted an appropriation of Soo.ouo to nt out an expedition for tbe object ot giving a practical test to the theory or nan. ana amine tne pro gress of science .and- civilization. There was a great deal of interest felt throughout the country in the enter prise, and this became more evident wnen congress, wnicn just tnen nap. pened to be in a perslmonlous- meod, appropriated liberal means . for Ha equipment. A government vessel set apart to be fitted up specially with a view to Arctic navigation.--This was the Polaris, formerly the Peri winkle. She waa exceedingly stanch and well fitted, and Captain Hall gave his days and nights to superintending her equipment. ' Captain nail was aoouc nve rest eight Inches In height, with a com pact, firmly knit frame, Indicative of great vigor and strength, and weighed probably about one huodredand nine ty pounds. He had a large head, with a profusion of thick, brown hair and heavy brown beaid inclining to curL His forehead was broad and massive, with a full development of tbe tem poral and coronal regions. : His eyes were blue, and the whole expression of the countenance firm, but very agreeable, kind and pleasant. - Cap tain Hall hailed from Cincinnati, where he was once eneaged In the newspaper business, publishing the. Occasional, ana arterwaras tne uatta Penny Press. In his earlier years he . was a blacksmith, working at the forge, and his robust development, beyond question, was in some meas ure attributable to the exercise of that ardent occupation. He was in nowise a scientific or highly educated man. but had a remarkably practical mina. th a great deal of force or character. He had never studied the science of navigation even, though he was, through experience and aptitude, as competent to navigate a ship or con duct an overland exploring expedi tion as any of the daring band of dis coverers that bad endeavored to solve the great Arctio problem. He sailed northward in I860 in search of Sir Johu Franklin, since which time his name and fame have been the com mon property of the worlcL, . ' - MODOC MATTERS.
