Commodore Fnoteand sister, said to be the OTlllttt people in the world, will give one of their interesting entertainments at Town Flail, in tins village, on Monday evening, the 1 1th instant These little people have been before tho puhlir for twelve years, and from tho very start have maintained a reputation far above the Ordinary travoling troupes, giving the best of atisfa- uon everywhere. They are highly spo ken of by the press, which commends them for the excellence of their exhibitions. The Courier has all along seiesored its Edi torials Msfcmiy from the Chicago Inter-Ocean, and particularly the Inter-Ocean's inflation articles. Last week, however, it scissored a very good editorial against inflation from a "Sound Carrency" paper. It either mads a mistake or else it proposes hereafter to advo cate noth sides, so that if the Democratic Inflation wins in Ohio it will be in a poeition to aay " We told yon so," or if the Republican and Democratic "Sound Currency" doctrine of New York, wins, it can also say " We told yon so," too. It is an attempt to nde two b re, be all things to all men, in a very small way.

The work of the institute will be conductod. as far as possible, in tho samo man ner as regular class work, the topics treated embracing the various studies of tho common school. School government, and the best meth ods of rendering tho scool room attractive, will also reeoive their share of atteution. Arrangements are being made to secure re duced ratos for boarding for all who attend. Aside from board, there will bo no expeuse con nected with the institute. It will pay all who intend teaching, as well as township superin tendents and others counectod with the man agement of schools, to be prosent throughout the entire session. It is expected that a num ber of the township supeinteudents will hold special examinations at the close of the Insti tute. From the Muskegon Chronicle. Bept. 28. On Friday, Bept. 24tb, 1875, about 6 o'clock In the evening a girl was stolen from her pa rents near this city, and all efforts, thus far, to trace the trail of the thief have failed. L G. burke the captor is an unmarried man, about 40 years old, about 6 feet 1 inch high, weighs about 180lbs., light sallow complexion with black wooly hair, indicating negro blood in his veins. Claims to be a Cauadian. Sarah Jane Brooks, the girl, was 12 years old in March last, hair dark brown, eyes very ! black, face rather long, a pit of the size of a pea caused by a boil, on one temple, and tongue full of small pits on the sides and end. j For several years the thief has lived near tho j home of her father in Laketon township, Muskegon Co., Mich., and petted the girl with candy and the like, gradually undermining her affections from her parents and persuading j her into disregarding parental authority. The I father is a fanner not well to do in worldlv I goods, but nevertheless possessing the natural love of parent for offspring, and the family are thrown into tho deepest grief over the lost lamb from then fold. Any information of either the captor or girl will be gladlv received. Communicate with Major Win. L Kyan, Sheriff of Muskegon Co., Muskegon, Mich., who offers (100 reward for the approtiensiou of tho thief and the return of the girl. Will the press of the country have the kind ness to call attention to this affair. Ed. Tuna N out r xax kb. When the Hon. Schuyler t 'olf ax was announced as t orator to deliver the addresB at the Fair at Lawrence, it was received by those Democrats who believe that " poeco hath her victories as well as war," tbo same as tho announcement of any other private citizen, whose name and fame are known throughout tho broad extent of the land. Hut the " Dimmererats" aud blather skites, like "Captain" J. li. ilendryx, could not let such an opportunity pass without in dulging in lhngi and venting their spite. Had Mr. Colfax como here as a politician seeking political honors and emoluments, any criticism of his past indiscretions would have been en tirely in place. Hut ho camo at the invitation of an agricultural society to deliver an oration, and all those, who attouded the Fair a Law rence. will testify fo the admirable manner in which he did his share of tho work. Mr. liondryx's firet letter which appeared in tbo Jhm'ur RejHtdsfMMt, who Editor lends him his columns in lieu of pots -aes, turnips, chick ens, etc., was treated with ttie silent contempt it deserved. Hut in last week's issue, we find another of tbo same sort, poisoned with venom and malignity, which should DOS pass MM buked. These letters, for brilliancy of non" sense MDd lenvth, breadth, and depth of fgot ism, have no equal, and their auth r ought to have a monument more enduring than the brass in his cheek Kow tho burden of this old man's lament is not to be asenbod to Mr. Colfax's connection with Credit klobiher. but to the fast that he was uot invited to address the farmers of Lawrence. It is believed, by those whose knowledge of the faeti warrant the estimate, that the receipts were $400 in oxceee of what they would have been but for Mr ( ol fax's presence. Does any one suppose tbat Mr. Ilendryx'e stale pieee, which is farail- iar to every school-boy in Hamilton, would ! have added 40u cents to the receipts. On the contrary, would not some of bis townsmen who have been unwilling listeners to his out ! burets of eloquence, have staid at home and j d?u potatoes, or done something else equally ! useful and ontertaining ?
