There were large disbursements for the na ry and for pensions. MAIL CONTRACTS. When the In man and Canard lines of trans-Atlantic steamers were racing for the mail contracts, tne trip from land to land was made in eight and three-quarter and and a half days. Mr. Cresswell now offers the same inducement the contract to the fastest line and we are very likely to have a cheer ful explosion in mid-ocean. RECALLED. As ne result of recent- troubles in -Japan, part of the students who are being educated at the' Michigan University, have been recalled. These students were . sent by the general government of Japan; and the Mikado now finds it difficult enough to support his own power without defraying the expenses of a hundred or more students. The young Japanese are reported to ex press great dissatisfaction at their recall, and to seem very loth to leave their studies. The order reach ed them the day before Christmas- NEW FLOURING CLOTH. new vented in England which is not un like some already in the market, but is a novelty on account of the ma terials used in its manufacture. It is composed of pure vegetable oil prepared by a patent process, mixed with ground cork and rolled on strong backing of waterproof can vas. it is claimed tnat tne new cloth will be warm, soft,damp-proof and elastic. A flouring cloth made of cork, which was invented some years ago, -was objectionable on ac count of its elasticity, and the fact that the composition of which it was made .never became thoroughly dried.:. WORKING DOWN TO A SPECIE BASIS. Those who doubt, , remarks the Cincinnati Chronicle,tha.t this coun try is rapidly working its way to specie resumption would do well to examine the late statement of the Chief of the Bureau of Statistics, comparing the British exports to this conntry for the eleven months ending November 30, 1873, with the same period of 1872. Last year England sent as 185,846 tons of pig iron, and this year only 96,098 tons. Last year we bought from her 441, 074 tons of manufactured railroad iron, and this year imported only 177,955 tons. In wool, we this year imported only one third as much as last year, and the decrease in cotton and woolen fabrics, carpets,and silks ranges from twenty per cent, on the former to fifty per cent, on the lat ter. As opposed to that our wheat ex. ports fur the first eleven months of 1872 were $25,000,000, and for the same period this year over $55,000, 000, an increase of more than 100 per cent. With' the balance of trade turning in this way, with our home indus tries rapidly increasing, ' and with the currency kept at or near its pres ent limit, specie resumption is not far ahead. ! SIGNAL SERVICE BUREAU It is gratifying to observa the ef fect which the popular and positive demand for retrenchment and econo my in the matter of the public ex ditures is having "upon Congress. Every scheme of assistance to doubt lul projects, and . every plan com mitting the government to an in definite expense, mast be throttled without hesitancy or mercy. There is no branch of public service, how ever, with regare to which it is to be hoped a liberal policy may pre vail the United States Signal Ser vice rsureau. uareiy tnree years elapsed since, by special act of Con gress, appropriation was made to apply to the expense of meteorologi cal observations upon the lakes and seaboard. The list of disasters on the great lakes lor the three years preceeding and the three following these observations is as follows: 1866, disasters recorded, 621; in 1867, 931; in 1868,983; and in 1869 1,002.' Observations began to be taken and warnings given during this year. In 1870 the lake disasters recorded were 971; in 1871, 750; and in 1872, 3e4. It will therefore be seen that the system of caution ary smals adopted by the signal service has in three years reduced the number of. disasters by storm more than two-thirds, to the unques tionable salvation of commercial property amounting to many mil lions of dollars. Indeed, the utili tarian value of this comparatively inexpensive branch of. the public service can barely be over estimated, and it ought on no account to be crippled in its operations for wan of a sufficient appropriation. THE SEE-SAW OF WEALTH. Wealthy young men begin where their father left off, and leave off where their fathers as business men began in poverty. It follows that oar millionaire of the future are the young gentlemen who are present skillfully conducting the onerous de tails of the peanut, candy and boot black trades. One clever little match merchant is mentioned as one of the coming gold princes. Having noth ing but the power and the determi nation to work, he borrowed a little while ago $25, all of which astonish ing fortune he invested in matches. He presently sold bis stock at a good profit,paid his debt and began business untrammeled.putting every spare dollar in bank, and being now the possessor of $300, a quantity of matches worth $75, and money enough besides to give him daily comfort. This ii the sort of a boy to know his catechism and never go swimming on Sunday, and naturally to grow up rich and respected by all who know him. SAFEGUARDS. Governor Dix is persuaded that more safeguards ought to be thrown about the $314,000,000 deposited in the New York savings banks, and recommends in his message that the law be amended as to prevent any director, or other officer of savings banks, being an officer of banks of discount. He wishes, too, the amount of deposit by one person to be limited so as to prevent capita lists using these institutions. This is a matter that ought to be looked into, but we doubt whether it will receive any especial attention s long as there is more profitable sub jects for legislation.' . CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. The Constitutional Convention having a. trememdous tussle with the subject of the Courts. The point at issue seems to be whether the administration of justice shall be simple and direct, to accommo date the people, or complicated and dilatory, to accommodate the law yers. A GOOD APPOINTMENT. The public will learn with gratifi cation tnat tne President has reap pointed to the position of Pension Agent for Northern Ohio, Colonel Seth M. Barber, the present incum bent, who has deserved this second perfeiment by a term of exceptional efficiency and success in managing the involved and intricate busi ness pertaining to his office. Col onel Barber was an officer of the 42d Ohio Infantry and on the 22d of May 1863,lost a leg in the terrible assault on the defences of Vicksburg,by the 13th, 15th and 17th Army Corps, to the former of which the 42d was at tached. He is therefore one of the maimed men for whose assistance the Pension Bureau is intended.The pensioners of this district find him a kind,sy mpathetio and efficient officer, and the wisdom of his reappointment will hardly be called in question. COMPLIMENT TO GOV. NOYES. The Republicans in the Ohio Leg islature have formally agreed to give to Governor Noyes the compliment of a nomination to the UnitedStates Senate. Mr. Jones, of Trumbull, will therefore present his name in the Senate, and Mr. Hodge.of Cleve land,will do the same in the House. This will be a fitting tribute of re spect and confidence t6 the retiring Governor, whose services as Execu tive have entitled him to the grate ful remembrance of the people of Ohio, irrespective of party. His courtesies to his successor have been in the highest degree manly and dig nified, and hare commanded the ad miration of both his political allies and opponents. Among the Demo crats there is no serious opposition to the re election of Mr. Thurman, which will undoubtedly take place some time this week, if the Democ racy recover from the hilarities at tending the inauguration in time to do any business before Saturday. A MAN CHOPPED UP BY HIS STEPSON. A most horrible murder occurred at Steambnrg, Cattaraugus county, IN. 1. Saturday night, a man nam ed Omans was killed by his step-son Omans bad taken his wife and daughter to a dance . in that place, after which he returned to his house followed by . his son-in-law. Here Omans was met by the boy, a lad of fourteen, who asked to be allowed to go to the dance. Permission was not granted, when the boy insisted, and blows were interchanged. The son- in law then left the house and soon returned with the family. Omans was found in the yard.his head near ly severed from his body and cover ed with wounds. Near him lay the boy unconscious, apparently in swoon. When the boy regained his senses he stated that he had kill ed his step-father. He said that Omans pounded him and then he thiw him out of the door. He(the boy )had then caught up an ax stand ing near, knocked Omans down and struck him several times with it He then went into the house, but thinking bis step father had not been sufficiently punished,came back and cut bis head off. Both parties were nnder the influence of liquor at the time. The boy was arrested and lodged in jail. The civil service examinations will not be made, it is said, until some time in February next, in any part of the country. It seems to be a settled thing that the Democracy will redistrict the State for Congressional purposes. we shall thus have an opportunity to see what virtue there is in Demo cratic professions of dislike for this gerrymander as an instrument of political warfare. The law department of the sovern- ment holds that the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company have- no equitable title to the Harper's Ferry Armory property, not having ful filled the original conditions of sale, and it is proposed to compel the company to vacate the piemises. THE INAUGURATION. Great preparations had been made for a grand time at the inauguration of Governor Allen on Monday last. A special train was run on tne C. Mt. V. t C. Railroad, for the benefit of the faithful. From the talk dur ing the past three weeks,we thought that Holmes county was going down in to to, but we learn from the agent at the depot that beside the Silver Band, the members of which had passes furnished, and a few dead heads there were in all ten tickets seld at the Millcrsburg depot. The crowd at Columbus, Jiowever, was very large. The procession moved at half past 10 o'clock through an immense throng that everywhere packed the streets. It was very long with a large number of millitary companies and bands of music and made a magnificent appearance. The procession moved through the sever al principal streets and to the cast terrace of the State house, where the inaugural exercises took place. After prayer by Bev. C. L. Rex- ford, of Columbus, Governor Noyes introduced his successor in the fol lowing words: THE INAUGURATION. SPEECH OF EX-GOVERNOR NOYES. Hi fellow Citizess 1 hare the honor to introduce to you a gentle man long distinguished in the coun try's history, and now called by the sovereign voice of the people to pre side over the interests of oar stale Hon. William Allen, Governor of Ohio. After tremendous and long con tinued cheering by the immense crowd, Governor Allen spoke as fol lows: INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF GOVERNOR ALLEN. is Columbus, Jan. 12th. Gentlemen of the General Assembly : lhe event or October nave made it my duty to appear before you,and in your presence, to take the oath prescribed to the Chief Executive onice of the state. ; I have taken the oath, and shall earnestly seek to perform the prom ises it exacts. NO GENERAL SUGGESTIONS. At the opening of your session, my predecessor, in his annual mes sage, submitted to you a general statement of the condition of the several executive departments of the Government. He likewise made such suggestions as seemed to him necessary and proper. If at anytime during your session tne pa one interests should, in my judgment, require me to do so. will submit to you some additional suggestions in the form of a special message. NO GENERAL SUGGESTIONS. MUCH LEGISLATION TO BE A VOIDED. The Constitutional Convention, now in session, will no doubt com plete its important labors and sub mit the result for ratification by the people daring the current year. Should such ratification be ob tained, your next session will be one of extraordinary labor. You will then be required to revise the whole body of the general laws of the State and by appropriate modifications,ad just those laws to the requirements of the New Constitution. For these reasons, you may deem it unnecessary to alter in any very material particulars, the existing laws, at your present session. EXPENDITURES AND TAXES MUST BE REDUCED. a But there are some legislative acts which will I believe,attract your im mediate attention. These are the acts by which taxes are imposed and appropriations made. Even if you were now convinced under ordinary circumstances, you would I believe, feel it to be your duty to reduce existing taxes and appropriations; for it is evident to all men that the increase of taxes and public expen ditures has for some years past been much beyond the actual and ration al necessities of the public service. But, gentlemen, you are not now convened under ordinary circum stances. A few months ago that undefinable but tremendous power .called a mon ey panic, imparted a violent shock to the whole industrial and property system ot the country. The well considered plans and calculations of all men engaged in active business, or in the exer tion of active labor, were suddenly and. thoroughly deranged. In the universal business anarchy that en sued.the minds of men became more or less bewildered, so that few among them were able distinctly, to" see their way, or know what to do or what to omit, even through the brief futurity of a single week. All val ues and all incomes were instantly and deeply depressed. There was not a farmer, a manufacturer, a mer chant, a mechanic, or laborer, who did not feel that he was less able to meet his engagements, or pay his taxes, then he had been before. The distressful effect of this state of things was felt by all, but it was more grievously felt by the great body, or the laboring people, be cause it touched them at the vital point of subsistence. Many of these men were unable to find that regular and remunerative employment so es sential to their well-being, whilst some of them, especially in the large towns and cities, would have suffer ed fir the want of the nutriment up on which the continuance of life de pends, but for that prompt humani ty and charity so characteristic of, and so honorable to the whole American people. It is in the midst of this condi tion of things that vou are now con vened; and it is manifestly the duty or the .Legislature of the State to af ford the only relief which it has the constitutional power to afford, by tne reduction or the public taxes, in proportion to the reduced ability of tne people to pay. Yet, this cannot be done without at the same time reducinr the expendi tures of the State Government dawn to the very last dollar compatible with the maintenance of the public credit of the State, and the efficient working of the State Government, under the ever di-cs- eat sense ei necessary economy. X do not mean that vague and mere verbal economy which public men are so ready to proiess whq regara to puuuc expen ditures I mean that earnest and inex orable ecouomy, which proclaims its existence by accomplished facts. In the prodigality of the past, you will find abundant reason for frugality in tno tuture. EXPRESSION OF THANKS. I close these briet observations by re turning my thanks to the people of the State, for that expression of their good win ana pieasurti wnicn brings me be fore you. I thank you, gentlemen of the Gener al Assembly, ana our fellow citizens here convened, for the respectful atten tion with which I have been heard ; and I thank my predecessor for the courtesy and urbanity which be has extended to wards me since my arrival In this city; when for the first time I had the pleas ure of making his personal acquaintance. The oath of office was then ad ministered by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, when Governor Allen was escorted to his room. The members of the Senate and Honse of Representatives assembl ed in the Senate Chamber and the oath of office was administered to Lieutenant Governor A. Hart. Mr. Hart spoke as follows: Lieutenant Hart's Inaugeral. Senators I enter noon the office to which I have been chosen by the people of the States with a desire to discharge its duties faithfully and impartiallynd in such a way as to secure the rapid and correct transaction of the business which mav come before the Senate. The con stitution and laws state, so far as they are applicable, together with the rules adooted bv vour bodv for its eovern- ment, will be strictly observed, ii mistakes are made you will correct them and I shall rely largely for my success fnd efficiency in this position upon your active co-operation and assis tance. Ohio, though one of the youngest in point of wealth and political power. j.n nilo a m Mnff tK. r v fAMmnst nf VhA states of the Union. With so many im portant interests to be protected and guarded there will be at all times a de mand for legislative action, anu uiose persons who look upon the office of a legislator as a mere sinecure utterly misapprehend the duties and responsi bilities or that position. The Senate chamber is a place for earnest painstaking labor, and the ses sion upon which we nave en tereu win be in the highest sense, a harmonious working session. One of the great evils of our time is too much hasty legislation and as a result every legislature is re quired to spend a portion or its time re pealing or modifying enactments incon siderately passed by its predecessors. To-day, it seems to me, the great need f the State is not so much the passage or new laws as the modification and condensation of those in force while the legislation of the State is subject to criticism, it is a matter of profound sat isfaction and pride that during the sev en tv-two years of the life of the State no charge of corruption has ever been justly made against any General As sembly or onio. . I anticipate a pleasant session and trust lhe work accomplished here will not only be of permanent value to the people but that all our deliberations will be conducted with that dignity ana courtesy which so well becomes mot hers of an important legislative assem bly. The inaugural Ball opened at 9 o'clock and continued till long after midnight It is said to have been a grand affair of the kind. We are now living in a democrat ic state. Although the sun has thus far hid his face, we trust that all will be bright and pleasant soon, The inaugural address is a modest business like, and a sensible docu merit. Thus far the new Governo: has commenced well. William Allen has 'risen up.' The Anthracite strike seems to have fairly began, unless the opera tors will recede, something that no body expects. Ten State Legislatures begun their session last week. Ohio Illin ois, Minnesota, New York, Wiscon sin, Missouri, Maryland, Massachu setts, Pennsylvania and Maine are the afflicted commonwealths. There are said to be five living female poets in Rhode Island, who are all unmarried. Probably the men were affraid to take them for better or for verse. The Washington Republican char acterizes a recent lecture of Anna Dickinson, in that city, as a magnifi cent specimen or feminine oratory.' Didn t know oratory bad any gen der.

Jfhuadciphia - business men say that the new Constitution of their State is worth one hundred millions per annum in its reviving effect up on trade, but the politicians are not so well pleased,and are preparing to contest its validity in the courts. Currency is steadily coming out of the old stockings, and seeking in vestment and nse. The indications all point to a great deal of business activity In the early spring. The Tituusviile Herald reports twenty-four farms and eighty-six producing oil wells on the Modoc belt Their joint production is 5,- 595 barrels of oil per day. The lar gest spout from one well is 1,070 barrels, and the smallest four. An Arkansas farmer's wife recent ly made a medallion of a sleeping race in butter, which is said to be really fine work of art She mount ed it in a milk pan and set the pan in a frame. It is now on exbibi tion. Her husband is proud of her, and loves none but her. They can't get over it Those Kentucky rebels have treason so thoroughly ingrained that even the sight of the old nag throws them in to a fever. It seems the Legislature of Kentucky proposed to tire a sa lute on the 8th in honor of Jackson's victory at New Orleans, and the House voted also to hoist' the Na tional flag from the staff of the Cap itoL But wnen the resolution came to the Senate oniy eight members were found loyal; eighteen voting against the stars and strifes. One Senator said he won Id not have that flag flaunted in his face.

The pray er was promptly answered, for it is asserted on the best authority that the kissing immediately ceased. Affairs are no better in Arkansas than they might be. A UnitedStates Marshal named William H. Britton proves, upon investigation, to have had no fewer than one hundred and forty three deputies; and, according to three separate reports made to the Department of Justico by olli cers sent to investigate affairs, these deputies derived their support from fees that they should collect, and that they traveled, manufacturing cases. Ono-third of the fees were retained by the Chief Marshal, be- sides ten per cent upon all gross re ceipts. Deputies loaned their com missions to others to make arrests and divided the fees.

[From the Brownsville Clipper.] An elderly gentleman namedWig gins, formerly of this county, now of one of the Western States, called at our sanctum a few days since and exhibited an artificial curiosity, the nature of which the whole world could not guess in a life time, for it gives evidence of one of the oldest intellectual conceptions which could possibly emanate from the human mind. And what do yon suppose it was? But we needn't ask; we must tell you.as nearly as we can describe it from memory, for it is not before us, scr had we, being otherwise en gaged and much hurried at the time an opportunity of examining this nondescript as thoroughly as we could have wished. But, the can osity: . Two half gallon glass jars or bottles, four and a half inches in di ameter, ten inches deep, with a nose or cork-hole at the top, the size that of an ordinary quart bottle, were placed on a table before us. With in these two bottles were placed in regular working order or position nearly all domestic implements of old-time household industry. There were miniature looms, perfect in every part with .weavers in their proper places, webs in process of be ine woven, shuttle, yarn real yarn. and all complete; a demure old lady spinning linen on a little old distaff spinning wheel; another at a large wheel, one or two reeling; two men threshing with flails, carpenters shoe-makers, and many other trades and calling in perfect trim and ap- paientlv in operation. And how think you all this "household and kitchen furniture;" these mechaaical implements, with, in each instance, their operations in position, got in there? Every thing through that little cork-hole of half an inch diam eter, and no other way! It was the work of the exhibitor, who, for amusement, spent seven years in ac complishing the task while engaged in taking core ot an insane wife. ART DISCOVERIES IN CYPRUS Lovers of ancient art will rejoice, says the London Globe, at a discov ery just made at Cyprus. Held succession by the Egyptian, , the Persian, the Greek, and the Romans it is not wonderful that traces of their occupation shuuld occassional ly occur in the island. And Cyprus has furnished the archaeologist with a goodly stock of materials, The latest addition promises to be of exceptional interest At Palsea Remessas, the accepted site of the ancient Amathus, on the southern coast and six miles distant from Limasol, men have been diggin stones for some time past for Port Said, on the opposite coast of the Mediterannean. lhey unearthed colossal statue, calcareons stone, of Herciilese holding a lion before him by the hind paw. 1 he statue is per fect down to the knees, bat the legs are wanting. It measures in its present shape nine feet in length, The limbs are thick set and - heavy, and the whole is said to be of every artistic workmanship. This is the only information we have for an opinion on the age and origin of the same. Amathus was one of the old est towns Cyprus, and was coloniz ed at an early period by the Phoeni cians, who hrst introduced the wor ship of Hercules under the name of "Alelkart" or ilalika." The work is however, probably early Greek. Whetker we shall nave the means of judgeing for ourselves is doubt ful. . The discoveiy was made in plot pf private land belongingjto the British Vice Consul . at Limasol, near Pictro Loiso. That function ary was quickly on the spot, settled about the price with the laborers, and thus became sole proprietor of the treasure.with a view of send ing it to the British Museum. Then his difficulties began. . The Gover nor of Cyprus interfered, claiming the huge relic of antiquity for the imperial Museum of Constantnople. The dispute has not teminated, and will in ail likelihood be shifted to Stamboul for" settlement Mean while the statue, guarded by "Zap tiels," remains on the Spot where it was found.

Ledger says: About two weeks ago a swede by the name of Torguerson, who resides in Swift county, was proceeding to a neighbor s, some three miles distant from his own home.uarrying a shovel on his shoul der, which he was returning to his neighbor, from whom he had bor rowed it He had accomplished about half the journey and was pass ing through a small grove when he heard a crashing in the underbush and, turning round, saw a stalwart deer, of the bock persuasion, mak ing for him with every demonstra tion of hostile intentions. There was but one coarse to pur sue, and that was to fight for his life and, being a powerful man, he an ticipated an easy conquest Mistak ing man ! The deer charged with antlers lowered even as an enraged bull would lower his head when dash ing at his foes. Nels grasped his shovel and stood stoutly on the de fensive. As the enraged buck near ed him he aimed a desperate blow with his shovel full at the head of the deer. It struck one of his antlers with such force as to break it, but the concussion was so strong that it forced Nels backward several feet, and hurled him breathless against a tree. Just how the nght went after that Nels don't remember, but he fought with all the strength of des peration, and at last the deer and himself both feu to the ground, and Nels lost all conciousness for a long time. When he "came round to his soul again," the deer was lying stark dead near by him, and could barely crawl away. His clothes were in rags, his left cheek torn open, a gash on the right side where the deer had inser ted one of the prongs of his antlers, and three fingers of his left hand jammed up. The shoel was a total wreck, and the carcass or the deer was pretty well hacked around the head and shoulders. The blow that caused the animals death was inflicted by a sharp cor ner of the shovel remaining on the handle after most of the blade bad been broken off. The wounded man succeeded in crawling back to his home. which he reached in a terribly exhausted condition. It is thought that he will survive his wounds. IMPORTANT RESOLUTIONS. AUDITOR'S OFFICE, WOOSTER, O., Jan. 5th, 1874. .At a meeting of the Board of Com missioners at the Auditor's Office at Wooster, O., on motion of J. W. Newkirk, the following proceedings were had : : Resolved, By the Board of Com missioners, that we in behalf of all good citiz3ns condemn the escape of the convicted burglars, Willis and Brinard, from the custom of the Sheriff, Jacob R. Bowman, as being the result of a want of ordinary care and prudence in the discharge of his official duty. And be it further Resolved, That we regard the conduct of the Sheriff after the es cape, in not making any proper ef forts to recapture the prisoners, not calling into requistion any of the means and appliances the law places at his disposal and command as such Sheriff, as being negligent in the extreme to say the least And be it further Resolved, That we demand forth with of him, the Sheriff J. R. Bow man, an increase of his official bond to the amount of twenty-thousand dollars, and further that the Audi tor hand the Sheriff a copy of these proceedings forthwith, Yeas J. W. Newkirk; F. N, Has- kins. If the evidence in J.W. Newkirk's possession, in regard to the above case, be correct, then I can endorse the above resolutions. BENJ. WEYGANDT.

Graves, daughter of Henry ttraves t,q., from Layton Essex county, Virginia, passed through our town yesterday, accom panied by her brother, to take the boat for their home in Essex.having just returned from Kicnmond, Vs., where she sought relief from pain, having been bitten by a mad dog on the 6th instant She found a mad- stone in the possession of a Mrs. Hix, on First street, No. 410, Rich mond, Va., and bad the stone appli ed to her thumb five times at a cost of $15 for each application. The stone has to remain twelve hoars each time, and on the first applica tion afforded her great relief; and she is now in good spints.and feel ing no pain or inconvenience what ever from the bite.
