The Pictorial Family
. We have just received from
t'io3e well-known publishers
of ' first-class subscription
books, Messrs. E. Ilannaford
& Co., a copy of their unique
and beautiful novelty. "Tbe
Pictorial Family Register."
We hardly know how to des
cribe it, but may say that it
combines tbe features of a very
tasteful family photograph
album with a complete and
systematically Arranged family
history. It has evidently been
prepared with great care to
meet a real want in society. In
every family there are sacred
memories, conuected with the
living and the dead, and a safe,
elegant and tasteful arrange
ment for preserving a fuller
record of them than is con
venient in the Family Bible, is
often felt to be exceedingly
desirable. The publishers of
the work before as have provi
ded for this in admirable style.
A great deal of information,
both interesting and valuable,
in the history of every family,
is constantly being forgotten
and lost, for the want of some
means j ast such as this. "Reg
ister,'' for collecting and pre
serving it. Its forms are neatly
printed and very simple, so
that any one who can write can
easily fill them up. In addi
tion to these forms, the "Regis
ter" four pages to each indi
vidual embraces a suitable
spnee for miscellaneous memo
randa of nny kind, and a leaf
for the insertion of a photo
graph. There are enough of
these Registers to include all
desired dates in respect to
twenty-five individual lives
and persons. Two "Military
Records" are also added at the
close of the work, for nothing
the principal events in the mil
itary life of those members of
the family who may once have
served their country in the
army. From this brief descrip
tion, our readers will 'perceive
that the ('Pictoral Family Reg
ister" is really a treasure of
home comfort and household
information, j a desideratum,
and a positive luxury. It is a3
useful, too, as it is ornamental.
The enterprising publishers,
Messrs. E. Ilannaford & Co.,
(177 West Fourth street, Cin
cinnati, and 158. South Clark
street, Chicago), announce that
it will be sold by subscription
only. They desire agents for
it everywhere. We are not in
formed in regard to the com
missions allowed, but from the
character and standiag of the
firm, we have no doubt they are
liberal, and if so, the Bale of
this most popular work must
prove highly remunerative.

Railroad Matters.
The- Dfwctof of the Oalli

office, in Gallipolis, on Satur
da)', December 2.
There was present: Wm. II.
Langley, President, Wm. Sho
ber, Secretary, Reuben Ales
hire, Wm. II. Eagle, and
Thomas B. Davis.
The following resolutions
were present and adopted, to
.Resolved, hatVVnv H
Langley, President, and
Reuben Aleshire be and they
are hereby authorized and
instructed to make such pro
positions to persons proposing
to do work for the Gallipolis,
McArthur and Columbus Rail
road Company, as they may
think equitable and for the in
terest of said Company, aud if
such propositions as they may
make to any person or persons,
are nccepteu, or ir tne said
Wm. II. Langley and Reuben
Aleshire should receive from
any other person or persons a
proposition or propositions to
do work, that they think are
equitable and for the interest
of the Compnny, than in either
or all such cases, they are auth
orized and instructed to con
tract or agree upon terms of
contracts with such persons.
Provided, no contract shall
be made binding the Company
to pay for grading, bridging or
masonry, or either ot them
over seventy -five per ccut,.on
such contracts in money, and
the balance to be paid in the
stock of the Company nt fifty
dollars per share. JNot less
than fifteen per cent, of the
monthly estimates for work
done on said contracts to be
held back on each and all
monthly estimates. Said per
centage may all be held back
in the stock, part of the pay
ments, or part in stock and.
part in money, until the work

issued by the Secretary or
other proper officers of the
Compauy monthly as the work
progresses, which certificates
shall be negotiable aud bear in
terest at the rate of seven per
cent, per annum, and the cash

And further
Resolved, that the said
Wm II. Langley and Eeuben
Aleshire be and they are here
by authorized and instructed
to do whatever they think ' for
the interest of said Company,
and that which will be likely
to conduce to the early, econo
mical and sucessful building
and completing said Kailroad;
and that they exercise their
discretion as to who and the
time of employing engineers to
make a final location of said
Railroad, until further instruc
ted, and to report their pro
ceedings to this Board at its
successive meetings.
The above action was taken
after mature deliberation and
discussion, and looks like busi
ness. All persons who are in
terested in our Railroad should
exert themselves until the
work is accomplished. There
is no use in talking about it
all know the benefit the Road
will be to Gallipolis nnd the
country along the route, and
should give all the assistance
in their power to secure its
early completion,

The first disaster on the
Eastern Railroad occurred to
an extra train returning from
apolitical meeting at Marble
head; tha second was during
camp meeting at Hamilton; and
the third wa the end of last
week when the trains had been
crowded with visitors to both
military camp and camp meet
ing. There never was -a greater
demand for laboring men than
at the present time, and yet
there are many idle ones, who
stand . around the corners
doubtless waiting for positions
as railroad conductors or cash
iers of banks.

bank officers are now trying to
find an owner. There is of
course considerable scrabbling
for that large amount of prop
erty. It is presumed that ho
left no children. There are a
great many nephews and neices
of the above named Isaac Phil
lips in Ea9ton, Stoughton, the
LJiKtgewater8, and in the re
gion around about these towns.
The point now to be proved is
whether the Isaac Phillms
aforesaid is the one that depos
ited that money in New York.
If these heirs cau prove that
he really was the man, then
the money is theirs.
There once lived in a small
cottage ou a cross road leading
from Dickerman's corner iu
this town to North Bridgewa
ter,au old lady by the name of
Susan Phillips. She obtained
her livelihood by braiding
straw and flitting boots. She
guarded her hucklebery pas
ture with vigilance, and woe
betide the children that dared
to'fill their baskets from its
bushes. The old lady died
five or six years ago, at au ad
vauced age, aud at her request
the large family Bible, con
taining the record of tho Phil
lips family, was placed under
her head and buried with her
in the grave. It was thought
that this Bible would be of
servee in looking up of the
pedigree in looking the pedi
gree of the Phillip's famdy.
