There were over 200 visitor in the city, and all were entertained at the homes of our citizens.

Certainly is something extraordinary for fanners in Ohio to be compelled to go to town to buy hay for their stock : Almost every day some farmer may be seen Wending his way ont of town, with bale of hay, with which to satisfy his critters " nntil the winter is over.

AND BE SURE IT WILL GROW. The severe winter through whicn we have passed, has no doubt injured a great, deal of the seed corn, and it behooves farmers to be certain before planting, that their seed will grow. Rockhold & Son have at their hardware store, two samples of corn, one yellow and one white, grown by Mr. Joseph Yiiisonlieller, of this town ship, last year, and which he had selected and put away for seed with the uaual care, but on sprouting it iu a hot-bed, not more than one-third of the yellow corn came up, while most of the white proved to be good. The spring is so late that farmers have no time to lose in re-planting, so they will see the importance of planting seed that they can rely upon, Murphy Executive Committee. .

The latter part of last week was a gay time for the young society people of Hills bro, and one that will long be remember ed. There were quite a number of strang ers in the city, and they came just at the right time. On Thursday evening, Miss Cora Bell entertained the ''German Club," about fourteen couples being present, and it was an event which the participants heartily enjoyed. Miss Bell entertained her visitors royally, and they were charm ed by her hospitality. An excellent string band furnished music, rich refresh ments were served, and "all went merry as a marriage bell." The German was led by Mr. Will Matthews and Miss Jennie Bar ry, and all present took part. The dano ing was kept up until a late hour, and it was with reluctance that the guests finally said "good-night" and repaired to their homes. Friday evening was no less auspicious than the one preceding, for on that eve ning the young people were entertained at a riiantom Tarty, (a sheet and pillow case masquerade), 'given by the Misses Patterson, of East Main street. Fifteen or twenty couples look part in the sport, and there has not been any social gathering in Hillsboro for many months, where there was such genuine enjoyment. When the I guests unmasked, the picture was a ludi crous one, and many were the exclamations of8iirpri.se.: The refreshments were ele gant, and after they were served the guests enjoyed themselves in the giddy waxes of the dance. The company was entertained, as the Misses Patterson so well know how to entertain, and their reputation for hos pitality was well sustained. The stran gers were loud in their praise of tiie society of LI'.' '.wro, and made manv pleasont ac quaintances. GETTING DOWN SMALL. THE SPY BUSINESS TO BE INAUGURATED IN OHIO. An attorney of standing in our' city re ceived a proposition a few days ago,' from what is known as a "Meroantilff Union,1 the atrocity of which surpasses belief. The proposition was to make him sole cor respondent for Hillsboro, in consideration of which he was to execute a certain con tracts - Among other things the- contract contained these clauses: - , . , ..

A young man named Stevens, son of Mr. Stevens, who lives near New Boston, into quiet expensive trouble here . last Saturday. He first began to abuse a Ger man named Clements," with whom he had had a fuss before,and wanted to whip. Clem ents filed an affidavit against him, which was given to Policeman Lyle, who soon had the young man in hoo. When Lyle weut to arrest him, he went for Lis gun, but the policeman was too quick for him, and took it ?way from him. He was tak en before Esq. Harnian and fined $3 and costs, amounting to $5, for abusing Clem ents, and $10 and costs, amounting to about $12,' for carrying concealed weapons. He secured the Cues and went home a wiser if not a better man.

Mai Elliott was badly whipped Satur day night at the Granger corner, which he claims was done by Bob and Henry New man. Policemen Lyle and Stevenson heard of the fight and went down to in vestigate, when they found Mai surround ed by hi friends, bleeding from several deep cuts about the head, which were evi dently made with knuckles or a rock. Mai stated that he and Bob Newman got into a fight, when he knocked Bob down, whereupon Henry Newman struck him, knocking him senseless. The Policemen fonnd both the Newman boys in front of the Jefferson House and arrested them, and started for the station house. They both went along very quietly and the officers an ticipated no trouble, and consequently did not have hold of their prisoners. When the quartette got to Kibler & Evans' alley Bob suddenly darted into it, when Police man Lyle drew his gun with the intention of shooting him, hut taking a second thought did not fire, and Bob escaped. Henry waived an examination and gave bond for his appearance at the next term of Court, in the sum of $300, for assault with intent to kill. Mr. Lyle informs us that he conld have shot Bob through, which he first intended to do, but fortu nately his better judgment prevailed. We could not learn who was to blame for the fight, hut Bob certainly acted the dog with the officers, and we hope he will be caught and severely, pnuished. Sixty or ninety days in jail on bread ani water would tame Mr ..Newman Jobsidorably, we think, and if we were mayor that is just what he would eet at the first opportunity. He is a bad, quarrelsome rough, and should be dealt with accordingly. We. understand Newman has jumped the town, but be wijl be back some day, when he should be made to answer. "J HORSE THIEF CAPTURED, WHICH WILL RESULT IN BREAKING UP A BAD GANG. [Special to the News. GREENFIELD, O,. April 18, 1881. A young man by . the name of William Heniy, from the hills of Boss county, a few mile southeast of Bainbridge, was arrested here last Saturday, by Marshal D. M. Harris, and locked up, charged with stealing a horse from a Tlr. Sholtz, near Bainbridge. A dispatch was received by tiie cfScers at this place to be on the look out for man and horse, with a full de scription of both. Henry had Btolen the horse from the stable on Friday night be fore, and brought him to Greenfield to sell at last Saturday's stock sale,- and had the horse np for Bale, with some two or three bids on it, when he was arrested. Mr. Sholtz arrived here on Sunday morning, and iu company with Marshal Harris vis ited the prisoner at the calaboose, and managed to get from him a full confession of the stealing. He claimed the horse was stolen by an Irishman, whose name he mentioned, and that he gave it to him to. sell. There have been some, four or five horses stolen in the neighborhood of Bainbridge in the last three or four months. Henry v turned State's evidence, - and squealed on the whole gang, giving the names of all the parties. Onicers will soon be on their track, and the guilty par lies wTll be brought to justice. " Henry was moved to Che Chillicothe jail Sunday af ternoon, and turned .over into the hands of the Boss county authorities, as the stealing was done 4n that county. Ross county is averaging one Penitentiary bJrd a week, but Greenfield has the luck of catching them all. ' y Jep. MAY COURT. NAMES OF THE GRAND AND PETIT JURORS.

PROBABILITIES THAT IT WILL BE AT HILLSBORO. It will be remembered that the News a few weeks since contained an item in re gard to the encampment of the 13th Regi ment this summer, advocating its being held at Hillsboro, and now we are able to say, that in all probability it will be held here. CapU Matthews wrote to Sergeant Major Egbert, asking what would be re quired oi Hillsboro, and requesting full particulars, which have not yet been re ceived, but he is in receipt of a postal, stat ing that it is expected to hold the encamp ment in this city. Several of the boys in terested spent a portion of last Sunday, prospecting for a camping ground, and de cided on one which is accessible to the city, convenient, and in every way suited for the purpose. It is on the old Barry hill, just east of the city, now owned by R. T. Hough, Esq. The encampment will be in the woods, south of the old baseball ground and the ball ground will make a splendid parade-ground. There is a never-failing spring in the woods, which furnishes excel lent water, and we do not think a pleas anler place could be found for the regi ment. Capt, Matthews expects further particulars in a few days, which will be given in the News. THE GYMNASIUM CLUB. MEETING FOR TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION. A meeting was held at the City Hall on Tuesday evening of last week, by the stockholders of the talked-of Gymnasium Club, expected to be organized in this city. A tempory organization was effect ed and committees appointed to ascertain the cost of rent, apparatus, tc, who will report at a meeting to be held at City Hall en Thursday eve. next. Everybody seems to take a lively interest, and there is no doubt but that the Club will be organized. Nearly a hundred names have been secur ed, but it is not yet too late to join, and at least a hundred more ought to be added during the next week. W. F. M. SOCIETY. ELEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING, AT HILLSBORO, APRIL 13, 14, 1881. ABLE ADDRESSES OF MRS, THOMPSON AND MRS. PINE SUMMARY OF THE YEAR'S WORK. ELOQUENT ADDRESS BY MISS THOBURN, THE SOCIETY'S FIRST MISSIONARY TO INDIA. THE SOCIETY HANDSOMELY ENTERTAINED BY THE LADIES OF HILLSBORO. As st'Ued in our last issue, the 1 1th An nual Meeting of the Cincinnati Branch of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the M . E. church, began in our city on Wednesday morning. About 100 delegates were in attendance at the opening exerci ses, and others who came in by the morn ing train, increased the number consider ably. The first day was principally occu pied in the introduction of delegates, hear ing reports of committees, prayer and Binging. We present below the eloquent and beau tiful address of welcome to the Society, by Mrs. E. J. Thompson, of our city, and the very feeling and appropriate response by Mrs. Pine, of Washington C. H. ADDRESS OF MRS, THOMPSON. Mrs." President and Sisters: Hav ing been officially commissioned to ex tend to you the hospitalities of Hillsboro, with great pleasure I bring earnest grect i::j8 and bid yoa welcome to the hearts and homes so cordially open to receive you. Indeed, we hail your coming to onr I ' ttle town as an. omen for good, and though you can ''tarry but a night," yet the benediction of your presence will abide with us, for "as in water face an swereth to face, so the heart of man to man." Thus, through the medium of the blessed "Holy Spirit," shall we, be holding your real for God and His cause, fee! otir hearts quickened to more earnest service. ' As we contemplate the glorious work you represent, we are reminded of a little group of sorrowing, "perplexed," yet brave and earnest women, who on that memora ble morning, ("the first day of the week,") "while it was yet dark," tenderly bore to the tomb of their crucified Lord "sweet spices," for His anointing. They walked cautiously, but with nervous haste, we imagine, ever and anon breathing forth their pent-up fears of the cruel soldiers, the king's seal, the great stone, and the guard. But God had thaken the earth; the soldiers fled, the royal seal was broken, the stone rolled away, and the keepers "be-, came as.dead men." Angels now guarded the sacred spot where the Lord lay, and the risen Christ bade those loyal, true hearted women "All hail!" as He commis sioned them to bear the. tidings of His resurrection. Some of you, my dear sisters, "very ear ly in the morning5' of the Woman's For eign Missionary work, "while it was yet dark," braved the perils of the sea, ex changing home with all its endearments for the isolation and hardships of exile, that you might carry to "such as sit in dark ness and in the shadow of death" the glad news of a "risen Savior." A wonderful way has been made for you. God hath shaken "principalities- and powers," the rusty bolts of ignorance and superstition have giyen way, and doors are thrown open wide for His righteousness to "go forth as brightness"and His"salvalion as a lamp that burnetii. Uoubtless at times ereat an guish hag pressed your spirits, and sore crucinxion must your natures have endur ed, yet at the threshold of every bitter draught or severed tie you have been met by the Master himself, who hath gently whispered "Be not afraid," "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world," "And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father or mother, or wife or children, or lands, for my name s sake, shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit ever-lasting life." thus have you been sustained, "for the joy of the Lord is your strength." But what of the faithtul toilers on "this aide the sea," they who have "patiently la bored and have not fainted," that the mar velous record of the Woman's Foreign Mis sionary Society might fill up the measure of its demands ? Have they not borne up on their souls, all these years, the care .of the noble, Christian women who have gone to foreign lands, trusting to them for pledg ed supplies ? And who can estimate the anxiety, , the', self-sacrificing efforts, the earnest, consecrated prayers of those unob served workers ? 'None, save the Lord, the 'searcher of hearts," who saith to all such, "Rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partak ers of Christ's suffering, that when His glo ry shall be revealed ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.". ; Perhaps a large majority of the mem bers of the Woman' Foreign Missionary Societies, in all. churches, from various causes, are mere sympathetic donors, yet in view cf the importance of the golden link in the great chain of missionary ef fort, they are no mean factors, and " their sacrifice will doustlesa be counted an "ac ceptable service;" for, while now and then a fortunate "Ruth" may have-large and easy missionary gleaning in-the rich fields of her generous "Boaz," yet by far the largest supplies come to these treasuries from the aggregated trifles, from the hard earned and harder Baved sums of earnest hearts, or from the cheerful offering of the trusting "widow," whose mite skill! counts with "God, the Judge of all." When Leonardo da Vinci had finished his great picture, the "Last Supper," he privately unveiled it to a friend and invit ed criticism. 'Exquisite!" exclaimed the friend, "that wine cup stands out from the table as solid, glittering Bilver." The ar tist, Beiring a brush and blotting out the cup, said : "I meant that the figure of Christ should first, and mainly, attract the observer' eye ; whatever diverts attention from Him must be blotted out." Let this sen timent of the artist be adopted by all Christian women engaged in Foreign Mis sionary work, and with his unselfish zeal carried into effect; then, whether they work or pray, give or suffer, brave the front of the battle or meekly bring up the rear, it will all be blest of God, and "shall prosper in the thing whereunto He hath sent it." But it is not my purpose, dear sisters, to "multiply words" to you. Rather let me sit at your feet and learn wisdom the few brief hours that we may be together. My favored mission from these good Ilillsboro friends (who always "give precedence to age") Was merely to make you feel at home among us, and again to congratulate our community upon your cheerful accep tance of the invitation of our modest, but old and truly orthodox, "Auxiliary." ADDRESS OF MRS. PINE. Mrs. A. E. Pine, of Washington, on be half of the visitors, responded as follows: "When the allwise Father planned this work which has so largely called women into action, we may readily conceive a twofold design was in the divine mind, that of blessing the helpers as well as the helped. As we listened to this beautiful address of welcome, which comes to us so affection ately through Mrs. T. and which has no uncertain sound, we realize that this wo man's work for women does not atop with our sisters across the waters, but that it binds us together in bonds of close sympa thy. So closely has our work united us that we, who to-day look for the first time into each other's faces, scarcely meet as strangers, though we come from all parts of our own beloved State, and from sister States, separated from us by neither creed or color, but only by the waters of the beautiful Ohio. And after this kind greeting which, in the name of our Master, bids us to know one another, we lay ' aside all formality and forget for the time every thing but the one great interest which has brought us together. While this good work is elevating and ennobling those of our sex to whom the glorious light and liberty of the gospel have hitherto been denied, we understand this truth: that it is more blessed to give than to receive, for all around u we see busily engaged efficient laborers who, un til this field of usefulness was opened, stood on the outside, sadly Bayiug, "Noman hath hired us." Some of us, alas! went reluct antlv. but how rich has been the harvest of blessing the Lord of the vineyard has alreadv poured into our siorenouse. we find onr minds enlightened, onr hearts ex panded, our sympathies drawn out, until we, who, at the beginning of the last de cade, cared little and knew less of the workings of mission fcor.ooiy, find our-; selves strangely intertf-tcd in what n be- ing done for women by wornn Ur and. near, east an 1 wcrt, in city, village and hamlet. While we realize that our offering is ac- cepted and our labor blessed, with the Apostles we thank the Father that not many wise, not many mighty, not many noble, are called, but thaflle hath chos en the foolish things of this world to con found the wise, and the weak things to confound the mighty. To the workings of all our organizations, from Branch meeting to Children's band, we are alive with interest. Alive, did 1 say? Are we, dear sisters, truly alive to the pressing demands of this mighty work which God has placed in our hamU? At an anniversary of our own Auxiliary a few weeks since, our Secretary read with somo pride what wc had accomplished during the year, and as our contributions more than doubled what we had ever giv en before wc thought we had done well. The sorvices of Miss Thoburn had been engaged for the evening. Her earnest ap peal that a few hundreds more might he added to the appropriation already mado, stirred our hearts, and as she described the want, the woo and the wretchedness of the lower classes, and the deplorable indiffer ence to the possibility Of ever attaining to better things, especially of our own sex, unless rescued by Christian effort, and as we recognized the tireless zeal which has prompted her own self-denying life, our little contribution shrank to nothing, and voice at our elbow seemed to say, "Where is the zeal ye apeak of?" And thus it is, we count up what seem to us vast sums of money, we speak of missionar ies and teachers sent out, of schools and orphanages sustained, of Bible women supported, of the success of the medical woman, whose much needed art gains for her admittance to prison homes, where by the aid of the Spirit she introduces the light which time will never extinguish, and of the general prosperity of the work, aud forgetting that to whom much is given of them shall much be re quired, we offer our prayers, we give our mites, and witli a comfortable leeimg mat we have done our duty we complacently fold our bands and sing: "Waft, waft ye wiads the story, And you ye waters roll," while the harvest is so white, and the la borers are so few, and the night for us so fast approaching. Truly the wind and the wave do his bidding, and do they not bear to us the Macedonian wail ot the benight ed women of the Orient, "Come over and help us: Break for us these fetters of su perstition and caste, unbind our feet, un- vail our faces, teach us that we may sit no longer as slaves at the feet of our masters, but by their sides as equals, worthy of their love and commanding their respect: teach us that our daughters may no longer be sold bytheir own fathers to the sensuous bidder who can command the h.ghest price. We have heprd what seems to us like a dream of paradise, of a land where moth ers are loved and tenderly cared for, where kindness and sympathy lighten the toils of a woman's lot, where the female, unveiled and unprotected, is free :lrom insult, though she traverse the country from cen ter to circumference; no one presuming, by word or look, to question her right, or re fuse her the aid which her sex demands. And tell ns, is it true that where vour Je sus is worshipped womanhood is reverenced and woman honored and loved. Women of the church, to such appeals as these, are we giving an attentive ear are we stretching out a helping hand? We, the the handmaidens to whom have been given the one, two, five, yea, perchance, the ten talents, with the injunction, "Occupy till I come shall the napkin or cloth of in difference be wrapped about and hide any precious gem the Master has cgntribu- teu to our care: t snau mat wnicn should hang around our neck, be so en crusted with pride or worldlv dross, that as a millstone it shall weigh us down,,' down, down, and we hear not the voice of (ur Savior Baying, ''Inasmuch as yc have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto nie?" During the lale campaign a request was sent to one of our eminent politicians, to address a club who signed themselves the Lincoln Club. The worthy -orator was compelled to decline the invitation, but he embodied all he had to say in these telliDg words : "Nothing but the truest of pa triotism could be expected of those who had assumed that honored name." Sisters, whoS3 name do we bear? If we follow in the footsteps of our leader will we not ;?o into the paths of sacrifice and solf-deniul? History tells U3 that no great good has ever yet been accomplished for mankind, whether of discovery, commerce, science or religion, that has not had its dark back ground of patient self-denial and discour aging self-sacrifice. And shall we, whose hearts have been touched with a Savior's love, shrink from this path, or fear lions in the way? Shall doubt or dread hold us so far in the rear that we lose sight of the footprints of blood, and heed not the voice of our Leader, saying, "He thatgoeth forth and woepeth, bearing precious seed, shall come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." But can we claim that for us there is much of sacrifice in two cents a week? When our organization was in its infancy this sum was jnst the milk needed to sustain the babe. Bat has it not arrived at an age when it can Krow and thrive on stronger diet? and shall we not devise more liberal things for this our enterprise, which even now is assuming manly proportions, and is blessing all who are connected with it? But some one says, there have been so many valuable lives sacrificed on this altar, and bo little ac complished, such vast sums of money spent, and bo much needed to be done at home. True, as the Savior said, the poor we have always with us, and their claims are not for a moment to be denied, and he that considereth them in the day of trou ble shall not bo forgotten. And yet the Gospel is at their . door, and schools and books are possible for them. 1 hey are surrounded by the blessings of civilization. But not so the heathen women ( for it is for our sex we are pleading ), not so the women of heathen lands, where they are beasts of burden, tillers of the soil, hewers of wood and drawers of water, bought and sold to beautify a harem, to gratify a lust, to serve as menials those who should be their rightful supporters, and with the majority scarce a conception but that it is just as it should be, little dreaming how highly heaven hai honored our sex, that the Savior of the world should be born of a woman. Let ns not forget our high calling, but with humility ask onrselve3 not bow little, but how much we can do, to send to them this glorious light, bnt for which we had been as they are. Ah ! but says some discouraged one, I have so Utile to give, my heart is runch larger than my purse. The storv of the widow's mite settles for ever the acceptability of small offerings m the sight ot heaven ; and those two mites, which were all her living, lifted to the gaze of the universe, and illuminated by a Savior's commendations, have exert ed, and will continue to exert, a powor no mine of gold can equal. Close beside it stands Mary's costly offering, given not grudgingly or of necessity, but as a grate ful expression of her love to her bavior, who had forgiven her much. These two offerings are alike accepted, alike com mended. Ice one had given her whole living ; the other had done what she could. Though our off-ring be small compared with what we would desire-, may not the eye of Him who seeth not as man seeth, discern within our hearts thut true spirit of love and self-denial which is ac ceptable in His sight, and with Ilis bless ing; onr mite shall become miglitv for good, and eternity alone will reveal how our little leaven hath wrought wonderful things. To um all aiorT the line comes the word of command, What thou doest do quickly. Perhaps some of us iu the springtime have sown sparingly of seed, but the yield of fruit or ilower so far sur passed in richness and beauty what we had expected, we :iid, next spring we will bow more nlmnJaniiv. Sisters, w,e to-day will do well to ieuieu.ti.-r that for ns there is one seed time, that is now, one harvest, that at the end of the world. What then ahall be onrs to lay at the Savior's feet -. golden sheaves, or nothing bnt leaves ; a starless crown, or one radiant with brightness, rejoicing souls that have come up, Borne it may be from a distant land, a far-off island, who shall point to our ef forts as instrumental in their redemption? Shall we then have aught to regret that we have sown so sparingly? Let us who stand on the border of time, on tbe verge of eternity, act wisely to-day, not idly re gretting yesterday, or foolishly antedating to-morrow, but with diligence using the present hour, making and improving all opportunities, sowing our seed beside all waters, and then, whether "Sown iu the darkness, or sown in the lihr, own iu our weakness, or sown ia our miiiht, Gathered in time or etxrnlty. Sure, ah yes, sure, will the harvest be." In the name of this Branch, which we have the honor to represent, we thank j i I a you, dear ladies of Hillsboro, for this kind welcome, and for the hospitalities so cor dially tendered ns. May our coming among you prove a benediction, and in after years may this annual meeting be the era from which we date new zeal, re newed vows, and a more complete conse- tiuuu io mis worn. n i .. it couCTuay evening me cnurcn was crowded, even the gallery being filled.

Miss Thoburn has a fine voice. and an excellent delivery, and her address, which occupied about an hour, was listen ed to with great interest. At its close Mrs. Grace Sloane, of our city, sang "I know that My Redeemer Liveth," in a manner that would have done credit to a professional. Thursday's sessions were principally de- voted to business, but on Thursday eve- j ning the church was again crowded with people, anxious to see and hear the clos ing exercises. Mrs. Plumb, a missionary to North China, wa3 expected to deliver an address, but was unable to be present, on accouut ot illness. Miorl addresses were made by several lady delegates, and resolutions of thanks to the ladies and cit izens generally of Hillsboro for their hos pitable entertainment of the Society, aud other courtesieSjWerc- unanimously adopted. Miss Carrie Scott, of Giillicothe, sang a solo during the evening, which was well rendered, a;id showed marked ability as a vocalist. The Society decided by vote to hold their next annual meeting at Dayton. Too much praise cannot be awarded to tho ladies of our city, for the handsome manner in which they enterUined tho del. cgatcs. Tho lunches spread at the church on both days, were abundant, and com prised every substantial and luxury, which were served to the guests by our young ladies and gentlemen, who spared no pains to see that all were supplied. To Mrs. J. K. Pickering, of our city, through whose invitation last year the Society were induced to hold their Annual Meeting here, onr citizens are greatly in debted for tho opportunity of entertaining so large a body of refined and intelligent Christian ladies. Their presence among us, even for so short a period, was justly regarded as a high honor to our city, and as a rare privilege, which was greatly en joyed by ail who had the opportunity of attending the meetings of the Society, or of contributing to the entertainment of its members during their brief stay among us. And we are assured that our visitors, on thoir part, highly appreciated the man ner in which they were welcomed and made to feel at home by our citizens, and that they will long retain pleasant memo ries of their visit to Hillsboro. Among the more prpmiueat ladies who attended tho meeting, either as delegates or visitors, were Mrs. Bishop Clark, Pres ident of the Cincinnati Branch of the So ciety, Mrs. Cowen, Corresponding Secreta ry, Mrs. Pine, of Washington C. II., Mrs. Savage, of Ky., Mrs. Creighton, of Co jUtnbtis, Mrs. J. D. Taylor, of Cambridge. & a Mrs. Dr. Eidgaway, Mrs. Donghty, Mrs. A. R, Clark, Mrs-.

The -line publishers have, very st u rally, not been well pleased with the now famous enterprise, "The Literary Revolu tion;" and in depreciation of its character have laid special stress upon the claua that in cheapening books so vastly, it is ajiinsl the interests of American authors. Th Revolution boldly meets this asnarUon by statements as follows : 1st. That they are already paying to Americas anlhor more money than any other pabUhi house that is less than "twenty-five years e tablished. 2d. That Americas authors rarely receive from publishers a copyright ex ceeding 10 per cent, npon the reiaU pries, of their books actually sold. 3d. That at least one-half, and probably more, nearly three-fourths, of the books pub lished by American authors hare been published at the author's expeaee, th copTTi?ht, but themaelvei receiving large percentage npon the sales made. 4th. That they propose hereafter to pay to American authors for acceptable autau- scripts a copyright of 15 per oent, instead of 10 per cent., and they claim that their low prices, and the immense sales result ing therefrom, are far more in ths inter est of authors than much larger copyright on the commonly limited number of saes "One thousand hooks, profit tl.00 each equals 1 1,000. One million books, profit one cent each, equals $10,000." As an example of an American copyright book, they issue, in an exceedingly hand some form, the famous poetical, his torical and satirical, Americas classic, " M'Fingal, an Epie Poem," by John Trumbull, with very fall annotations by the celebrated historian, Benson J. Loasing, LL. D. This poem is almost as much a part of our history as the battle of Bunker Hill itself, and Dr. Leasing has greatly increased both its interest and its intrinsic value, by his historical comments and illustrations. This book was publish ed a few years ago by one of the old pub lishing houses, at 2.00 per copy, and had only a very limited sale. Tbe publishers claim that the reception of their new edi tion guarantees a sale of at least 50,000, or even more, probably 100,000 copies; and Mr. Lossing will, of conrse, reap a hand some reward, even from the small royalty npon the low price.
