nton's Brass Band, from Galli-
polis, visited our place on Saturday last, j
after attending the Mason City Picnic.
It is fast gaining popular favor, and j
we know of no band with equal practice .
that performs so well. The members are
gentlemen of high standing and reliabil
ity. We hope they may have occasion
to visit our town frequently.
jeg.Another terrible storm has swept
over a large portion of the West, caus
ing the death of some hundred and fifty
persons in various places, and an im
mense destruction of property. We give
a few of the items from some of our ex
changes, but have not room" for details.
Pomeroy has most happily escaped in all
these hurricanes. The scenes in many
places were fearful beyond description.
A Great Invention
la the "Thermometer Churn," now on
exhibition and for sale at Prall& Hatch's.
The Churn is so arranged that the re
quired temperature can be given to the
cream by aid of the thermometer, with
out adding water to it. Let no one in
terested in butter making fail to call and
examine this great invention.
Among the many thousand other art
icles on hand at this establishment, we
noticed a double shovel corn plow, which
will at -once recommend itself, to farm

them than he received a stab, from the
effect of which he died in a half hour af

Who Did It!
On Saturday night last, a splendid
band gave a serenade of the choicest
music, right by the Editor's sleeping
apartment. We don't know who they
were, nor who they intended to honor
with their touching strains; but if the
complimentwas intended for us, wc thank
the unknown musicians, and if for some
one else; we still thank them.
There is nothing which so deeply
moves us as the sound of sweet music
heard in the still hours of the night, in that
dreamy state between sleep and waking.
Again we thank the unknown dispensers
of "sweet sounds."

The Key West correspondent of the
New Orleans Picayune, under the date
of May 6th, furnishes an account of the
capture of the steamer Wildfire on the
ffth nlt.by the U S steamer Mohavk
The Mohawk sailed from Key West
on the 6th of April on a cruise off the
eastern end of the Island of Cuba. She
steamed and sailed about the barren keys
of the Bahamas, occasionally landing
and procuring supplies of fish and turtle.
She also visited the Lobos Keys, and
had two or three exciting chases after a
suspicious craft. On the 23d she put in
to the harbor of Nuevitas, and remained
there until the 25th, when she took the
American brig Pedao Sanchez, Doby, in
tow, the weather being calm, and carried
her outside of the reefs.
She remained in company with the
brig until the next morning, when dis
covering a sail in the offing, heading for
the land, she cast off the brig and made
chase. There being no wind, the sail,
which proved to be a bark, was speedily
approached. She was evidently an
American built vessel, but having no
name upon her stern, she was signaled
to show her colors, in response to which
the American flag was hoisted.
As the Mofauck ranged alongside
men were observed at work in the rig
ging, others about the decks a few in
number while the captain and his offi
cers coolly leaned upon the rail, observ
ing the steamer's movements.
She did not look the slaver, but from
force of habit, with a spice of curiosity,
Capt. Craven ordered Lieut. Carpenter
to board her." As the boat approached
the vessel, it was observed that no rope
was thrown out. It was then evident
that the visit was not agreeable.
The lieutenant, unassisted, boarded
the vessel, and was no sooner on her bul
warks than he waved hi sword, and the
men in the boat raised a shout a signal
that she was a slaver and a prize. The
moment that the slaves, who had just
been driven below, caught sight ol the
officer's uniform, (the hatches were
covered with greetings only,) they sang
and clapped their hands with joy; they
instinctively knew that their deliverers
were at hand. The vessel was at once
taken possession of by Capt. Craven, a
prize crew put on board, the officers and
crew transferred to the Mohaick, and
taken in tow. They headed for the
The bark proved to be the Wildfire, a
handsome clipper, built in Philadelphia
in 1855. She sailed ironi New lorkon
the 16th December, 1859, with an
American crew for the West Indies.
She made a good run for St. Thomas,
where she remained eight days, and then
sailed for the Congo river. She took
on board 603 slaves the night of March
21st. She got safely off the coast, and
had not seen a sail up to the day of her
capture. When they left the coast, the
American captain and crew were super
seded by a Spanish captain and crew.
The former then acting as passengers.
This cargo consists of children and
young men and women the majority
being from 12 to 16 years of age. They
are in a remarkably sound and healthy
condition. Few cargoes come over in
better order than this. The negroes,
since their transfer to the shore, seem
happy and contend. The sick in hospi
tal are getting well, under the kind treat
ment they are receiving. The U. S.
Marshal has charge of the negroes; he has
placed them in hastily constructed, but
comfortable sheds, built expressly for
them on Whitehead Point, a portion of
the jand purchased for Frot Taylor, but
half a mile distant ironi the iortincations.
The crew of the slaver have been be
fore the U. S. Commissioner, and com
mitted to jail. Capt. Bannan has de
tailed a portion of his company to guard
the negroes and prevent their escape, or
recapture. A guard of marines from
the Mohaick have also been detailed for
this duty. The Marshal has added to
the above a guard, chosen from among
the citizens, who are on duty night and
day. The negroes seem to be perfectly
happy and contented, and are siging,
clapping their hands and dancing their
country dances at stated intervals during
the day. They are visted daily by the
whole population. This encampment,
in fact, is the only attraction on the Key,
and it is worth a voyage of. a thousand
miles to see them. The women are,
some of them, most attractive in person.
They are generally clean, are but slightly
tattooed and have, by no means, the re
pulsive looks and manners of our native
slave population. They exhibit marked
J signs of affection for each other, and are

A recent issue of Hall's Jovraal of
Health gives the following recipe, which,
if all right, is certainly very valuable.
"To a pint of water add about thirty
drops, that is, about half a teaspoonful,
of liquor of chloride of lime; wash in
this two and a half pounds of insup
portably rancid butter, when every par
ticle of butter has come in contact with
the water let it stand an hour or two,
then wash the butter well again in pure
water; the butter is then left with the
odor, taste and sweetness of fresh butter."
