The oldest inhabitant wliu-Ti we have. met, 'unhesitatinelv remarked that Christmas this year was the brightest and clearest he ever belu Id.

Saturday morning last we received a letter postmarked at Constantine, Mich. But on the inside were neither date nor signature. The letter contained 82, but we do not know who to credit with the money. Should our unknown corre spondent happen to see tliis, will ho be kind enough to send us liis name. Also, send receipt spoken of so we can see it, and if all right it will be promptly re turned and the matter properly cor rected. It has been rumored for some time that the Baltimore, Pittsburg and Chi cago Railroad were about to change then mode of running trains and to make Tiffin the end of two divisions. Trains will commence rnnningon or about Jan uary 1, running from Wheeling, West Virginia, to Chicago, with Tiffin as the intermediate point, changing engineers, conductors and brakemen at that city. The result of this move will give Tiffin the shops its people have so long sighed for. Several of our business men have in formed us that their holiday sales were never bo large before As during the holi day season this year: These men be lieve in advertising and have made judi cious use of our columns for some time past. "A Word to the Wise," should be sufficient. If you want to get some returns for your money advertise in the Journal, and purchasers, if they want geod bargains, should buy of those who advertise. They waut to sell, and will aell at closor figures than those who don't even extend an invitation to you to visit their stores. . .

Bno died in fif teen minutes after tho accident. Mr. Conn escaped without serious injury. Several ladies had narrow escapes from being run over by the team. J CORRESPONDENCE. Letter from China. CHINA, October, 1874. seventy-five nines. As I have been to, Soochow to rent a chine.so hoase, it niny be uninteresting to give you suneofijnrm my experiences during the past week or so. , j Last week, Monday, the Rev. Mr. Holt: ami inrself. slartml nirin nnr l,mt fmm ! Editor JornNAL. It having been suggested by frieivln at home, that I oc-jall 'carwioually write a few words for the f Journal, I propose to tike up with the! proposition, at luast so iar as to make a I wgumiug, rust assuring your rraili that I never looked iipon newspaper cor-, w U v responding as my sp-oi.d culling. I be- gin this letter seated in what b here called a "house-boat," sometimes to dis-i tingiiisU it from 'other craft s which carry passengers of froilit, this one being es-1 v i,t.nj muiMvia to mo use ui two ur tnreo persons only, and am on my way! from Soochow to Shanghai, a journey of, j.Shanglii, having first rolled up a few comfortables, eet., for bedding, and hav - imr taken n ,'. 1,mve .f lv..l' .,l some nee and a few iioinuls of ment to eat on the way. Our boat is worked by four chinamen, who roceive about fifteen cents a day, per man. and board theni- selves. On the way up, as tltere was a fair wiuJi they had nothing to do but, hoist the sails and "hold tho strings," as they say, uutil we reached Soochow, which was just 21 hours after we started. auais uore ruu tnrougu tlie country, very much as horse rojwis do at home, i except that most of the canals are very crooked. .The one Ve went over was 100 feet wide or more most of the way, and is a beautiful , stream. One- littlo circumstance on our way up, was rather amusing some, perhaps,, wonlylliaye called it trying, .but .we only, laughed about it, and that was, we had come off without spoon, kuife or fork,; and Iv-d to work np our beef-steak and bread and stir our coffee with our pocket knives, We -could have formed "chop-BticUs," but these would not have helped ma ttori much. ' We were able to supply our selves as soon as we arrived in Sooehow. As soon as we came inside the gutes of the city, we began to be greeted every where with the cry of "Foreign duvil," that being the common term by which all foreigners are designated in China. We hear it so continually, that we usu ally pay no heed to it. Having moored our boat inside the city, we left it, and went to see some cluueese friends, to let them know that wo wanted to rent a house. Next day we started out our selves, and walked four or five hours, noticing all the houses tliat had "to rent" upon them, and enquiring about them when they looked at all habitable. At noon, being for away from the boat, where our eatables were, we went into a chuieese cook shop and called for chick eu and a sort of noodle soup, made by rolling out dough very thiu and cutting it up into very fine long strips, and then boiling. With only a pair of chop sticks, it is quite a feat to get these noodles into your mouth. It was Mr. Holt's first attempt, and ho only suc-J cceded with part of his bowl full. For myself, who had often done the like bo- fore, it was not so much of a task, and being hungry, I readily disposed of what I had, but not until we had fur nished many a laugh to the crowd who gathered round. In time, I said said to them in jest, "now that we have afforded you so much amusement by eating be fore you, you ought to foot the bill," at which they all laughed most heartily. The whole "bill" for two, including tea, was about eight and a half cents. Beginning our walk, we . at length came upon a house that seemed quite suited to our purposes, being two stories high, and just built. Then came the question, "would tho owner be willing to rent to foreignersi" We went to a chineeso friend and asked liini to go and see for us. This is always the rule in China, never do anything of this kind yourself, bnt go to a third party who acts as a "go-between." The landlord upon being applied to, said he must have two days in which to consult with his broth ers and friends, before letting us know. At length he sent word that he was wil ling, but his terms were so unreasonable that we had to give up tho place, Ihero is an amount of machinery requisite about renting a chineese house; which, to au American is almost horrify ing. In America, Mr. A. says to Mr. B. "I want to rent your house." "All right," says Mr. B., "you can have it for so much per montb," and Mr. A,, if satisfied with the terms, goes and lives in the house, and nothing more is nec essary but tho payment of the rent. In China, however, it is diffioreut. First, au amount varying from 30 to 40 dollars up to 200, must be deposited with the landlord as security money, security that the tenant will faithfully pay hia rent. This is all to be paid back whenever said tomuit loaves, provided he has paid all his rent. Then there aro the fees of two "go-betweau's," one on our side and the other ou the landlord's side. These vary from a few dollars up to a hundred. Thirdly, you must furnish some proper ty holder as your socurity, (aside from the deposit money,) and unless you are fortunate enough to have some friend in : j ( "go-bet weens" about 21 dollars.
