Our fiift snow, siiir-e that which " left orer from last winter, came h,wi to the depth of four or five inches on ! day nicht last. It soon disappeared, however.. This Is for the benefit of our "furrin readers." The new firm of Mains & Bro., of tiii place, are now opening a well aelectad stock of Cloths, Caaxiniers, vesiinsr, and etc. which they are prepared to make. up to order in the latest utrle. They al keep on hand ready made ciotliinir, and all kinds of trimmings, all of which are offered at the very loweat prices. Their advertisement will appear nest week. Read the new advertisement of Thos. Johnop. Mr. J. is well known as a reliable, wide-awake merchant, and when he announces that be has particularly extra stock of goods on band, his state ment may be depended upon. Call in and take a look at bis fine goods, and learn prices. The Fair held this rear by the Perry County Agricultural Society at New Lexington, was largely attended, and more generally satisfactory than any Fair heretofore held by that organiza tion. Mrs. Swinehart, widow of the late Samuel SwinehaiJ of this vicinity, died on Thursday morning last at her resi dence. - The attention of the stockholders of the P. C. L. S. A. & M. A. V. Society, will take notice that an election for Di rectors of said Society will be held on Saturday, the 29th of November. See the notice of the Secretary, in another part of this paper. Schwartz, the reliable artist has re turned home from a seven week's suc cessfully tour of picture taking, and will hereafter be found at his gallery in this place where he in prepared to take all kinds of good pictures, inelinlinu the new and popular style of pictures known as the French Metallic Plate. During his trip, Schwartz averaged 1700 pictures a week, aggregating in 7 weeks the enormous number of 11.000, which is u pretty good evidence oT his popularity as an artist. Referring to an article rhieh appear ed in our last issue in relation to the courtesies or the lack of courtesies, be tween the P. C. L. S. A: & M. A. V. Society and the P. C. A. Society, the President of the latter has this to say in reply; in the New Lexington Tribune of the 23d: If the editor of the Press had been in possession of the facts relating to the above subject, I do not think he would have made any reference to it. It is true that I received seventeen tickets purporting to be complimentary passes to the fall Fair of 1873, and it required the whole number and an extra quarter of a dollar to pass Geo. Essington and myself within the gate. Last year, I gave all the complimefrtnries received from the Per in- County Live Stock, Ag ricultural and Mechanical Art Un ion Society, to a member of our Board, and the whole batch would not pass him. These are facts, and show that compli ments from this source are badly under par. . v - Our Society issued no complimentar ies this year, but the Art Union and all other Agricultural Societies in the neighborhood, know that they are al ways welcome to oar Fairs without change. Respectfully, Ed. Rose, Pres't Perry County Ag. Society. If Bro. Rose states the case correctly, we are ready to acknowledge that we were short of facts, bearing upon this important transaction. Before our next issue, however, we shall endeavor to get another hearing from the other side. As the matter stands, it looks a little rough on the P. C. L. S. A. & M. A. U. Soci ety. Why is it that an exception is made by county officials in the matter of let ting the county printing, and the work, not given to the lowest responsible bid der, as is the custom in awarding con tracts for all other work of a public na ture? This county printing amounts, annually, to a very considerable sum of money in each county and we believe that the people annually pay about twice as much for it as they would if it were let, like other public work, to the lowest responsible bidder. We do not, by this, mean to carry the impression that the publishers who are lucky enough to be in favor with county officers are, gener ally in the habit of charging more than tueir pi:uii-iiea rates lor worK done for the county but because no competi tions seek the work, they, perhaps na turally enough, charge their full rates for the same- The county is a good customer; has lots of work to do each year, and is good pay and almost any publisher would be glad to secure its patronage at one-half or one-fourth the prices it usually pays for its official printing. Where there is so much work of that discription to be done by the county amounting, under the present arrange ment, to the butt-end of a thousand dol lar, eafh year, it strikes us that the' in terests of the tax-payers would be great ly subserved, by annually letting the county printing to the lowest responsi ble bidder. " And there are no good rea son why-it should not be. The printing establishments in the county are about equally prepared to do the work, and one is about as responsible as the other. So that by awarding it to the lowest bidder, no risk would be incurred of not having it promptly and properly done. By so lotting it, the tax payers of this county may save several hundred dollars each year; and we think the matter is well worth some serious consideration. Dr. Dawson's Cough Sykup. This remedy has been in the family of the senior editor of this paper with most gratifying results. In one instance, the use of a single bottle was attended by a complete dure of a very annoying cough, which had threatened to become a se rious affliction. We have also had op portunity of witnessing its salutary ef fects in cases outside of our own family. We voluntarily place on record this tes timony to the virtues of this remedy, and will state our belief that it only needs to become thoroughly known to the public to distance in popularity most of the cough medicines of the day, Lancaster Gazette.

The Cor poration knows no scales but its own. The last clause in the first section of the ordinance hereinbefore mentioned. contains a proviso, which was evidently intended bv the framers of faid ordi nance to apply to all coal which is to be used and consumed by any person who had purchased it while the coal was yet outside of the Corporation, under a con tract made and entered tnto between the coal-owner and the consumer himself, or in other words, the coal (not necessar ily the contractor's) must be outside the Corporation when the contract is made and entered into, and most be for the contractor' (consumerV) "own. use and consumption," and not for any other party or parties whatever. It can not apply to any other party than the con sumer himself, who, if be receive a loss from "short weight," cnti himself only suffer by making a foolislj bargain.

Letter from Catnbrldgae. Cambridge, Ohio., Oct. 17th 1S73. Editor Somerset Pra?ss: Sir: We have been in this town anal vicinity, for over two weeks, shaping business for the Singer Company. Cam bridge is the county scat ef Guernsey ca unty, and is pleasantly situittcd on the B. & O. R. R., It contains about thive thousand inhabitants, and strange to say it does not contain a single retail liquor house. It is beautifully ornamented with several very fine churches, and, there is being erected', a new school house which is to cost $50,000. it is three stories high contains thirteen large commodious rooms and is a model house in every particular, it reflects great credit, on the enterprising citizens of the town and is also very ornamental to the surroundings, the surface of this coun ty is not at all monotonous, as it is beau tifully diversified with hills, valleys, and table land. Tobacco is extensively cultivated here though'jconsiderable at tention is paid to raising wheat, corn, and other grain. A vast amount of ap ples are also being shipped from this county; but we have seen but one vine yard in this locality. In as much as we stayed in Kentucky, some time after we wrote to you from that point, we will give you-a short history of the re mainder of our sojourn in that re gion. We had the pleasure of visiting several fairs there, one of which was at Germantown, at which place we saw the finest horses and cattle, we have evejr seen on exhibition any where; we saw the celebrated horse Membrino, owned by Mr. L. H. -Long, of Bracken Coun ty Ky., also Golddust shown for saddle horse, said to be the finest in the State. We will also make mention of .W. W. Baldwin's celebrated herd of fine cattle one of which he sold on the fair ground to a gentleman of Bloomington, 111., for the little sum of $12,000. We also saw the yearling calf, which was bought at the great cau'e sale, in New York la.-t r?epuiuiicr lay Jir. A. J. Alexauuer tor :?r,i,000. It. is termed the seventh Due.ha.ss of Oneida, .iind a pretty goaai calf at that, on our wy from Maysville to Cincinnati, we had to stop ofi ; t a lit Kiver town and git six miles iniu the country on the Kentucky sitle, and not feeling disposed to walk that distance we proceealed to a livery ptaHe-for a rig, and upon lamming th.it the rom.d tii;a would cost S4.00 we remarked that we wanted the best rig in the stable. In a short time the darkey drove round to the 1 otel, and upon viewing our rig we found we had a good horse, harnessed in the regular style" of the country a bri dle' luinus reiii or throat latch and a pair oi nnge rope npes, ana a very common bueHv-board, the darkey informing' us at the fame time that dat hoss would skin us along like tt mud turtle. Upon ar riving at our desired point, we made known our business to the good lady of the house, and after our regular business was dispatched, we sat down for a little chat, whereupon a little urchin of some six or seven summers made' his appear ance with the request that his mamma should comb his head, she seized the comb and made the boy hold his head over the table, and after combing a time she drew her broad thumb nail ov.er the surface of the table which reminded us of eating grape pie and crushing the seeds. Mace did not stay for dinner. Yoo Bet. The Rev.: Wm. Henry of Dayton, Ohio, general agent of the American Bible Society, will preach at the M. E. Church in this place, at half past ten o'clock, Sabbath morning, November 2d, an'' in the evening of the same day will hold the anniversary of the Perry County Bible Society. As the Ameri can Bible Society is not demominationul, we invite all the churches to take part in the anniversary, and the election of officers. B. F." Thomas. ; Pastor H. E.

Of Mise Mattie feievenson, a volun teer nurse from Towando, Illinois, who fell a victim to the Memphis epidemic, the Memphis Appeal says: "We may raise, and we will raise a white shaft to commemorate her heroism, but in our hearts, from now henceforth, she will be with every one of us next lo the dearest in earth. Let the thaft be raised, and let it be the highest, the tallest, the most conspicuous in our lautiful city of dead, and let the name, 'Mattie Ste venson,' be graven de-op and deep down, where it will remain to defy the corro sions of time and tell how she laid down her life for the poor tf Memphis."

We employ no runners, neither do w go bs rit about the country (as msny do) calling on people as soon as they have burled their dear ones and beg, toBK and insist on their buying of us. We prefer to have a snore decent re gard for their feelings. Wc are almost dally re ceiving letters from persons outside of Licking County, wanting marble work and inviting us to call oo them with our designs, that they may inspect them and learn our prices. This we do, I w never fail lo suit, both In tbs (teslgn of the work and then in Its execution. Ve keep In our ware roc.ms a LARGER stork of finished Marble and Grunlie of all descrip tions than any other establishment in Ohio. The designs are of great variety, Iu Ainerlcitn and Imported MarMes and (iranltes. Our slot of finished work now on hAttd nmouttts to Fifteen Thousand Dollars. Il buycis viii our rooms they can seethe work all finished and set up juM as It w ill be when placed in the cemetery, and know jutt what they are buying, and rannot be Imposrd upon. It c-sta money to urulnh Ku niters with hor ses and buggies which added to the-commiMlof paid them makes a larft? Item and the buyer ha to pay it. There Is no getting around this fart, ilt hough the runner (tetizcr) vehemently pro- ests that UK will sell cheaper than any body jhw, and just here comes In the secret of the transaction which very few ntuh rMand, to--a It: The market prku-sof l-'orein mid American Miit oles vary fnmi twenty tt fifty per cent., beltiff rsdfd as Ko. 1, 3, average and c,imium. Now when a runner finds It necessary to itoU ery chenp, and although he promises tbe btt, Hill when the work is being done tbe diffe rent ,Tades of stock will be used according as ti price demands and when delivered tlte)tiyer with bis want of experience cannot detect thv difference. In our ware rooms can always be found tbe best and at tbe lowest rates, and If i my era want the cheaper grades, the prices wlli e lowered accordingly, but in hid you, tbe d;f- erence will be fairly pointed out and you wii not be made to believe that you are getting the best Instead of the cheaj-cr kind.
