The roads, we are glad to see, are being
attended to by Commissioner Fuller, and
the Lake road, particularly is being put
into very fair condition. 1 he throwing
up ofthe short stretch from tbe other side
of the railroad bridge iB a good work,
but it needs immediate following up with
gravel, to complete il. We are indebted to
Supervisor Scoville for filling up tbe boles
just beyond the burougb line. Mr. J. D.
Hulbert has generously offered to furnish
lake gravel, gratuitously, for ballasting
tbe road from tbe bridge to the harbor.
There should be no delay in accepting so
good an offer. As Capt. Scoville bas done
so well in anticipating tbe receipt of his
tax bills by tbe work already done, can't
he be induced to go a little further and
fill those horrid mud holes on either side
of the pontoon bridge, and that between
the tracks on the west side T Kb e can, he
will bring down tbe blessings of tbe (rav
ing public on bis venerable head. Our
neighbor Dale, on the west north ridge,
bas asked ns to take a drive over that
road, which bas been done with much
pleasure. It is decidedly the best piece of
road in town, and about tbe only one up
on which a two-forty gait can be made.
It is in so complete condition that with
the scraper, supervisor Luce, may. with a
little expense, keep it in the best order.

The Temperance Association.
Ed. Tel. The Young People's Temper
ance and Literary Association, which was
organised a few weeks since, now has
nearly 70, tnemlierg, and the number is
largely increased at each tneeting. A
great many of the finest young ladies in
ha cfty are working members. Now, tbe
object of this society is to furnish instruc
tion as well as amusement for those who
attend. An entirely new programme is
presented each evening, and they hare so
far been well carried through. The prac
tise of pprpmitting to memory, of declaim
ing, of composing apd of reading, Is ex
ceedingly good, as it develops facujties of
the mind which would otherwise remain
dormant. Extemporaneous speaking,
whjcb prepares the young for a possible
public career, if b,ere brought into requi
sition. Select reading, frbfph pleasantly
engages tbe .mind, and draws t Into 'a
train of free and healthy thought ; essay
writing, so fadiijnsible in a perfect edu
cation, because jit gjves a power of easily
expressing thoughts and ideas oq paer;
original communications for the society
paper the Congrtmitan all help to cul
tivate and strengthen the mind. They
are like so much absolute schooling for
the young.
Tbe last meeting wag largely attended,
and very interesting. Alter an opening
prayer by the Chaplain, Miss Fannie Hall
repeated beautiful selection, which was
followed by a well written essay on
"School," from Miss Aggbi McGiffert. The
evening's entertainment consjsted of de
clamations, reading, music, &c, and ts
erytbing was satisfactorily executed. Be
fore closing, quite a number of names
were affixed to the constitution. Next
Monday evening the society will hold its
regular meeting, and the Congreuman,
with some otber exercises, will ocpnpy

light, they were returned to tbe village
and assigned their places for lodging and
breakfast, among our citizens. At nine
o'clock, supper was anuouueed at the
Opera House. The audience room was
filled wi:b tables, and plates laid for some
350 persons, which were taken up by
those holding tickets. This supper was
prepared by the ladies ofthe village, was
not only bountiful enough for twice that
number, but as sumptuous, delicious and
elegantly arranged as could be desired.
After supper, Mayor Talcott look the
chair, and called the assemblage to order,
and Mr. E. H. Fitch proceeded, in bis
usual happy and appropriate manner, to
extend to the guests a most hearty and
cordial welcome. This was followed by
a remark or two.from President M'Creery,
when Judge White, or tbe Supreme Court
of Pennsyvania, Jed off in a very cheerful,
animated and humorous address, that pro

are loading with and running It qff In va

considerable quantities. The business
upon tbe A., Y. & P. wharves, fast week,
in discharging ore and unloading cars and

of the company. The shovelers and dock

The music was mostly songs wjth cho

well rendered. The paper was particu

bits at the expense of the as many school
masters. The yacat)on of three months
will allow of pornpjete preparation in ne.
cessary changes and repairs ; and Mr. and
Mrs. Treat haying been retained for an
other year, will, doubtless ensure the pros
perity deserved. Miss Bard has proved
herself in the front rank of teachers, and
likewise endeared herself to many, whd

Every body has got so much to do that

New York has.fewer old men in propor
tion to iu population than any city in
the civilized world. The poor die early,
of course, for the poor in -the city have
not the comforts necessary to the pro

aspiring to be rich, by which I mean tbe
business men, live altogether too rapid a
life to last long. The man who com
mences at twenty-three with ten thousand

known tbe world over for bis benevolence
snd bis glue is another seventy-five year
older. A man of little more than medi
um height with gray hairs and a spare
face, there is nothing in bis appearance
that betokens tbe powers he really pos
sesses. He is one ofthe strongest business
men in the city, aud at tbe same time one
ol the most progressive and liberal of tbe
citizens benevolently inclined. Having
made an immense fortune out of glue, he
determined that the public should bave
its fuil share of bis money. So be built
an "Institute" in which instruction in the
practical arts and sciences should be free
to all, and gave it to the city. The prop
erly is worth over a million, but it has
done millions upon millions of. good.
Girls here learn telegraphing, wood en

has 'passed his seventieth year, and is so
lough and wiry in his texture, that he
bids fair to live many years longer ;
though possibly could a vote be taken
among his associates, his decease would
not be long deferred. Daniel began ljfe
as a showman, was promoted to be a ta
vern keeper, and following his instincts,
drifted into Wall 8treet, where he has
been, for many years the most feared ope
rator of tbe street. He is extremely re
ligiousis a devoted member of the
Methodist Cburcb, and has built a Semi
nary ; but his professions or his giving
have never yet prevented him from shav
ing his associates most unmercifully
whenever he had them In a tight place.
Nothing so delights the old man as to get
his rivals in position where he can
squeeze them. He shows them no mercy
he destroys them utterly. It is related
of "Uncle Dan'l" that once on a time he
advised the pastor of an M. E. Church of
New Jersey to invest in a certain stock.
"But suppose I should lose?" queried the
"I'm so certain that you will make
money," was the reply of the good Dan
iel, "that if you do lose I'll make it good
to you."
Thus fortified the preacher did buy a
trifle of the stock. And having sq good a
thing the good pastor .confidentially told
thirty or forty or his flock, all of whom
made haste to invest in a stock which the
saintly Daniel had as goods as guaranteed
to go up.
But contrary to expectation the stock
went down, down, down. The preacher
rushed to Uncle Daniel to redeem his
promise, which the old man did by giv
ing him a cheque for the amount of his
"The thing didn't work, Jid it," said
"Indeed it did. nqt."
" Well, yon hayqn't lost anything.''
"But, my dear sir, I am distressed not
withstanding. Being certain of what yon
said to me I confided this good thing to
my parishioners, and they"
"Hev lost, hev they. Well, people
should never tech stock onless they know
the market, or hev some friend like me to
make 'em good ef they lose."
The joke or tbe thing lay in the Tact
that Daniel finding himself loaded with a
stock that was sure to go down took this
way to unload. He told tbe preacher
knowing that tbe preacher would tell bis
parishioners. It was he who told them
all the stock they bought He could
well afford to make good the preacher's
loss, if thereby he could unload the re
mainder upon the preacher's friends.

though well, and has, doubtless, many
loug years before him. Where his money
will go to, no one can form any opinion.
He has no relatives this side of the water;
and with those on the other side he has
had no connection for years. He is build
ing an enormous institution up town,
which, it is supposed, he intends to use
for a "Girls's Lodging House," but tills is ;
not certain. The probability is that he
will keep on, intending to do some great
good thing, but die suddenly before his
plans are completed, and that his enor

present position from nothing, and who
bids fair to double bis already colossal
fortune before he passes out. But I have
gossipped long enough about the old men.
It wilt be noticed that every one of the
rich old men in the city commenced very
poor. It was in poverty that they got tbe
strength and the habits that to-day sus
tains them. This is the moral to it. If I
could start again, I should start poor.
