Fourth of July.
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! Wliat
a change 1 What a retrospect! - -
Under the nurturing care of a kind
Providence, and by living up, to the
immortal principles of human rights,
fiat day, for ihc first time, aunou need
to the worJd,4he'thirtecn feeble strip
lings have expanded inf6 a gigantic
Confederacy of Statcs,stretching from
the Atlantic to . tho .- Pacific. '. The
young and impoverished Republic
lias grown - into . the most powerful
and wealthy, of empires.' 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. Despotism. . 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 :
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.

To His Honor, W. J. Ciliioke, Judtcc
of the Court ol Common Pleas, Pre
ble Co., S3 : -Sir:
Wc, the Grand Jury; for
Preble County, beg leave to report,
that we have inquired into all com
plaints of crime that have been prop
erly called" to our notice Wc hav
examined 108 witnesses, and found
twenty five true bills. 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. Iicspt ctfullv submitted.

The readers of the "Bng".aro being
continually surprised and enlighten
ed. The latest news is tho announce'
ment that little Ikey is a Farmer. 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.

"-,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.
