To-morrow, (Friday,) the firing of cannon, the swelling strains of mar tial tnuue and the., joyful waving of countless' banners ; will announce throughout tho land another return ing anniversary of our National Sab bath. This day, ninety-seven years ago, was bora the .American Repub lic, embracing thirteen infant Colo nics, thinly settled and poorly devel oped, their habitations,. for the most back almost live score years!

Her ex changes - penetrate; to the uttermost parts of the sarib, and the canvas of licr sl3ppiug"maybe) Utterally Vaid to whitcu every sea. Already in art, science, literature, invention and com merce, she takes her place in the first rank of nations, yielding to nous the palm of superiority History and tradition-will both -ho appealed to in vain to luniish' any. thing like a paral lel to the miracle of, this country's growth and developuicaf., -JScvcv has the world before known such an em pire never before iiich a "govern ment aud , such prosperity, among a people. Comparatively - speaking, free as air, electors of their own" pub lic officers aud-representatives, with n!I their rights reserved, 9ave what have been delegated, for the public good, our people present a spectacle at - oucc the wonder "and admiration of Christendom. If ever a people had occasion to "thank Providence for what it has done for them, it is ours, and tli is day 'should in truth be a great National Thanksgiving day, on which grateful prayers should ascend to Heaven for what we have, aud pa triotic pledges be renewed of our de tcniiinatkm to guard and preserve the institutions' that have conferred on us such rare felicity and prosperity. This day should indeed be given to the country; to prayers for its preser vation from Credit JMobilicr and Sal ary grabbers ; thoughts as to how an increasing love of it can be cultivated in tho popular inind--e8pecially now, .Avhcn corruption and faction arestri - J ving to undermine its government in the affection of the people fis a pre liminary to the establishing of a Mil itary.

On this day fath crs should., teach their , children the story of their country's birth and life ; should tell them about the Hag what it raCnns and 6tands for ; should teach them to lisp the names of our revolu tionary heroes ; recount to them their sacrifices and sufferings to attain what wc now enjoy.. There is need; of all this now It wo would preserve our institutions we must love them and guard them. "Eternal vigilance," has been fitly termed "the. price of lifecr- ty." : . . . .. . v r; Music Teaching. Everybody Is-fond of good music, and we believe everybody .should cultivate this refined and sweetest of talents. In, this connection we are pleased to .call the attention of all our readers to the advertisement of Miss Mis Ceouse, who has just completed a musical conrse at the Oxford Female College, and will open a School in Eaton, for the purpose of giving instructions in Bass, Piano and Vocal music. The following card, from her teacher at Oxford, will certainly be sufficient recommendation for all who wish her services : TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. Miss Mae Crouse has been with me at the Female College,. Oxford, Ohio, for one year, and received instructions in the theory and practice of Music. She has made such rapid improvement, has applied herself so diligently to her work, and improved her rare talents so care fully, that I do cheerfully recommend her to all who may wish to engage her services as teacher or organist.

Wc have vis ited our Comity Prison, and find, as all other Grand Jury's have for many years, that it is kept in as good order and condition by the. HierhT, as its present condition will warrant, but we unanimously agree that it is to tally unfit for the confinement of pris oners, and common humanity de mands that the County Commission ers-take immediate steps to put it in 8 uch a condition as will mako it a sui table place of confinement for con victs. We believe that the Jail can be made convenient, comfortable, healthy -and -safe, at a; comparatively small cost, by taking out tho inner walls and present cells, and erecting therein iron cells of modern construc tion and building a house for the Jai lor at the north end of the Prison. We desire also to express our thanks to Judge Campbell, our efficient Pros ecuting Attorney, for his attention and earnest co-opcrntion by which, in great measure, we have been able to bring our labors to ucli a speedy close; and to the Sheriff and his Dep uty for their kind atlcnti n to our wants.

He has slopped the innocent piggies, and chopped off their little tails as a pre , veutative of cholera. Ikey has wat ered the melodious gooses, set the virtuous hens, aiid gathered string beans. Ike' never mauled as many rails as Lincoln, and he never hauled wood to St. Louis aud got drunk on the proceods, like the country saver Grant, but for all that he is a Farmer, because ho says he is, and like G. Washington, little Ikey has chopped down Cherry trees, and can't tell a lie. It is a little surprising to people to learn that Ikey is a farmer, and would never have been known, if the Farmers had not begun to wake up and demand some little legislation in behalf of labor and less for monopo lies. When monopolists and treasury stealers were swimming on the sur face, little Ikey didn't pay much at tention to cows and cabbage it didn't pny but now, when labor is demand ing recognition and thieves are be ginning to quake, there is a new deal aud little Ikey shuffles from the bot tom aud turns up Jack.- Ikey is a Farmer, and it riles him to find that any one else is a Farmer. Ikey wants to monopolize the farming business and he is not going to have any other farmer fooling around. Little Ikey has not been happy for some time, and it is a little mean, when happi ness is auout tp cover him with beau ty, for any other man to turd up far- mer and go rushing about taking the offices from the little fellow. His friend of the cow hide should at oucc proceed to stranglo any other man claiming to be a fanner. Danger in the Distance. A certain wholesale dealer iu Pea nuts and Pie-plant, and general medd ler in other people's business, is On the rampage. -Our article on the festival at Ackcrman's seems to have touched him up slightly. He thinks we were oo severe on Ikey, and he threatens ' us with cow-hides aud blunderbusses. We don't know that we said any thing about the .dove-like Ikey that need- stir up "so large an amount of bile. Ikey misrepresented tho Festi-j val, and in the interest of truth we said so, aud will say so whenever key', strays from the pleasant paths of truth. The man with the long cow-hide can't -deprive us of a great mount of sleep, and he will live lon ger, and when he dies leave a longer purse, by attending 6trictly to his own business. Ikey certainly don't pay much for such braggadocio. r. ,i "-,Capt. W. L. SuAW,"who is still con nected with the New York Life, oue of the best and soundest Life Insur ance Companies in the country, -.was with us a lew dajs, last week. It has becu intimated by some evil disposed person, that the- "Cap." was the Life Insurance agcut that fell from a three story house in Lonisville, on. his check, without sustaining auy injury. We arc prepared to prove that false. He isn't that hard yet I .. : : Our Town Clock has four faces, representing four different times, not one of which is correct. It is an ex cellent type of the corrupt and de ceitful party now in power.. No side of its, face can be relied upon. Don't put your confidence in it friends, if you do, you miss the train I . -- . The Lake Erie Evausville and South .western Railroad will be built. Of course it will I Don't Ikey tell you so every week? Was ho ever mista ken ? Where are the doubting Thom ases'? We imagine wo hear the whis tle, "tootc, rootec, toot !" Ikey's love for the Farmers reminds us very much of the cat with' a mouse, although he may spare them fpr a while, they are sure to be catcu up in the end. . ... ; '"' ' .John Klaine .has made arrange ments with the Hamilton Gardners to receive fresh, garden .stuff every other day regular. Those who want -fresh Vegetables hereafter, can- be ac commodated by calling at his Grocery. ' Ikey endorses the great national salary thief, Grant, aud thinks it all right. It won't be long until ho will commence swallowing Shcllabarger for United States Senator. Ikey is very consistent. After disposing of our Gorman friends, Ikey turncth his bowels of compassion to the Farmer, and, Oh ! dear as the apple of his eye are they to him! Ikey is one!!!! Our friend "Cap." of Camdon, has our thanks for tho present left at our office. We'll wear it. OUR BOOK TABLE.
