Charles Hamilton, an itinerant no tion peddler, was arrested last week at Eldorado, charged with an attempt to eoesmit a rape upon the person of Miss Emciine Wright, living about five miles south-east of Eaton. He had a preliminary examination before the Mayor on Friday last, and com mitted indefanlt of $300 bail, charged with an assault and battery, under the provisions of the new criminal code, which allows a defendant to be bound over for a lower grade of crime, if concluded in the Ugher one charged The Baccalaureate address of Dr. Hancock, Superintendent of the Day ton Schools, and formerly of Cincin nati,' delivered in the city Hall on Sunday evening last, was worthy of the distinguished reputation of the speaker as an educator, and that is paying Dr. Hancock a very high tri bute. His subject was well chosen and treated in an able and interesting manner. The rolation of higher edu cation to the rank and file of this busy working world is one which should awaken interest, not merely as one which touches the individual happi ness of every son and daughter of toil, but as one which links itself to the most profound questions of political economy. The speaker's remarks to the graduating class, his reference to the home influence of an educated and refined woman, were eloquent and beautiful. We cannot attempt any analysis of the able gentleman's ad dress, but suffice it to say, that it mer ited and received respectful, earnest attention and hearty applause' Our people, and especially, our Marshal, should be congratulated for the ex cellent order maintained throughout the ' exercises' of the evening. ; The choir acquitted itself with rare merit Altogether, the people may ever re member with pleasure well spent evening. and profit, a A 'farmer's daughter, living ' near Cleveland, answered a personal in a newspaper, entered into correspond ence with the "unknown," finally met him, was married, went to the city to live, and returned to her father's in two months, dressed like a beggar, and looked twenty years older than when she went away.

While the fugues still linger along in memory there are many who have heard them, who are puzzled to know where; n the power of their fas cination lies for it is a fascination, aud nothing else. In no sense can the mu sic be called high art; it is not even medium art." But; nevertheless, Is pos sesses certain occult qualities which i ender U irresistibly attractive, not only to men and women of general culture, but even to those of the highest culture in the art of music. As to the music itself, criticism seems impotent. Its great charm evidently lies in the har monious blending of the voices, in con nection with the seeming nnity of time. Next to this, and scarcely second ary, is the great good taste shown in the rendering of most of their songs These happy qualities are due in, some measure to the natural gifts of the sing ers, but in a far greater degree to the thorough drilling of the master, aud to the nightly rehearsals. Nevertheless, let the analysis be what it may, there still remains the bottom fact that the negro's voice, when . correctly .used. possesses a sweetness, richness and power peculiarly and indescribably Its own. Particularly was this noticeable in the tenor voice of Frank Stewart. His tones seemed to be produced with perfect' ease, never forced, hut always clear, rich and distinct in the heaviest choruses. With respect to Mr. Thomp son's profound baso, we are at a loss to say whether! it is most to be wondered at or admired. That it is agreeably at tractive is sufficiently evidenced by the appreciation of his audiences. Upon the whole, it is the best troupe of sing ers ever in Eaton, and we doubt if it is equalled in America to-day. One dollar saved on a shawl at the Mammoth.
