ASHTABULA, umy. Saturday Morning, Deo. 5, 1874. THE NEWS IN BRIEF. TheHon. Georee W. Julian is spoken of as an available candidate for tUe Unit ed Btateg Senate from Indiana. A dispatch to a New York paper repro duces an editorial from a Shreveport pa per advocating "the assassination of every radical candidate counted ui by the Re suming Board. New Toik originates fifty-Bye to sixty tons of m$il matter dailyl , The efficiency of the postal service of the country is in creasing. In 1873, one letter went wrong in each 770 : in 1874. only in 1,500. The Washington Monument Association continue to report tne receipt oi uun;i lo tions from various sections of the country' and the prospect of an early completion of the monument seems to be better labn "ever. ; An exciting four mile race came off at San Francisco on the 14th, which was , witnessed by about 30,000 people. It was . won by the mare Katie Pease, beating the celebrated California horse Tuad. Stevens and others.

" A petition, says the Timet, is in circu lation asking the Legislature to appoint an additional Judge for this Judicial Dis trict, who shall hold court anywhere in the District, in case any of -the Judges are at any time unable to attend to their duties. The assay office at New York recently recieved three and a half tons of silver bullion from the San Francisco refinery, being the largest amount ever received at one time., It will be coined into 50-cent pieces, and sent, it is supposed, to South America. Congress will not stand shiverine on the brink next week, bat will probably plunge boldly into the tideof business even if they take the cramp, thereby. The Civil Rights bill is second in order on the calender ; the principle appropri ation bills are in readiness ; and the cur rency question, as the reporters say, is looming up."

Four times . Dan Voorhees, of Indiana, voted for the bill ; the other three times he did npf 'vote at all.

Judge Fullerton won the first heat ; in the second heat Judge Fullerton again came in first in 3:23, Sam Purdy second, Occident aeventy-five yards behind. The third heat Judge Fullei ton again came in head in 2:21$ winning the race. Republican' voters who showed their defection to their; party friends by as sisting la the election of old-line demo crats, will watch with some interest the movement for the release ot Mr. Boss Tweed, now being made in New York.

The first shock was felt at half past six in the evening Jtt duration was two minutes, The track of the storm was from 800 to 400 feet The population or the place is estimated at two thousand, and it is no exaggeration to say that or this number not five hun dred persons have been left with an unin jured rool over them. Fully one hundred buildings were completely demolished, and not one in the town escaped without some damage. On Main street, the entire roadway is strewn with the splintered trunks of fallen trees. In all the streets or the town household effects were scat tered about at random. Beds, and bed clothes, torn to shreds, are dangling from many of the trees. After the first shock ftbetarWTU over, many of the star tkd inhabitant, removed their furniture from their falling dwelling.. No boo had they done so,however,Uian a most ter rible ram storm came on. In flve minule8 the streets were knee deep with water and everything exposed to the storm was utterly destroyed. The cleaning np of the whole affair by fire, was prevented by the heavy rain that followed the blow. The fire that had been blown about among the rubbish had begun to kindle, and but for the rain, it would be difficult to tell what the end would have been. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. OUR NEW YORK LETTER.

UNLICENSED LIQUOR DEALERS. The souls of the liquor dealers of this city , are being agitated just now by t!ie action of the Excise Commissioners, who are without proper license. The Liquor Dealers' Protective Union resisted the law ; but in the test case the court went against them, and wide spread cmisur- nation ensued, as well it might, as not one In five of the thousands, of saloons iu the city ever took out a license. The decision of the court makes every one of litem liable to heavy penalties, and the Dolicc are determined to brine them to the score, no matter at what cost They hope to be able to close about a thousand of them by this means. EXTRAVAGANCE IN DRESS has always been charged to the leiuiniae account ; but this winter, it strikes me, the sterner sex may fail ly take their share of condemnation. One rich man recently purchased two seal-skin coats, costing severally $503 and $aoo and two TTlster coats, the belt buckles- wrought in massive gold and equally massive silver. What do VOU think of that ? One man paying $2,000 for over coats with thousands about him wanting bread ! True it is that every rich younjt manjin New York does not buy such ex travagant articles ; but the mania for rich clothing, extravagantly rich clothing, has taken possession of young New York. To pay $150 for an overcoat is nothing rare, and a suit, from hat to boots, inclu ding overcoat, that does not go a long tray into $300 is not much of a suit . Add to this the diamond studs, the ring. the watch, and the other adorn ments, and Charles Augustus manages to carry about him the best end of two thou sand dollars, which has to be renewed very frequently. But, neyertheless, they have cut down the $650 salaries of the poor teachers seven pel cent and are standing out against the 'longshoremen, who want enough wages ', to keep soul and body together. Speaking ot the 'LONGSHOREMEN, Their strike is general, 'and embraces many thousands of men who find their daily bread in loading and unloading ships. It would seem tho height of fol ly -for any set of laborers to strike at the beginning of a long winter, but the 'longshoremen have, from the nature ot their employment, fair prospects of suc cess. Any man can roll a barrel, but ev ery man 'cannot put a package properly iu the hold of a vessel, or take it out without damage. It is a trade. And when a vessel arrives, the demand for the services of the 'longshoremen isim mediate and pressing. The raw man cannot take his place. There are 9,000 of these men. They, have made the de mand for torty cents an hour for day work, and sixty for night work, and they are well organized to hold out. The steamship companies are trying to get other men, but the trouble is the' skill, Novices make bad work of it The COOPERS are still holding out, and are organizing co-operative shops, that enough employ ment may be had to keep the strike from being a failure. Other occupations are banding together, in most cases, however, to prevent threatened reduction of wa ges. There will be inevitably a great deal of TROUBLE AND SUFFERING in the city this winter. Laborv is very scarce now, and the cold weather puts its veto on the little building that is go ing on, more men will be thrown out of employment, and the trouble will in crease. The city is a cruel place for a man out of work ; fent, food, fuel, every thing costs so much that when the daily work that supplies it stops, starvation or ihe accepting ot charity is only a iew weeks ahe'ad. It costs a laborer all he can earn to-day to live to-day he cannot provide for the morrow when work stops. Heaven help the poor this sea son 1 SERVANTS. One of the great troubles in the small towns and cities of the country is to get properly trained and educated servants. This want can now be supplied at a tri fling cost A number of charitable ladies wh ohave more time and money than they know what to do with, and some little heart, established a year or so ago, t training school, to fit girls for service, on Tenth street They take raw girls, and teach them to cook,- wash, iron, sew, to wait at table, and do everthing that comes under the general head of house work- The work of preparation is done in no sloven way. Twice a week a French cook goes into the kitchen with all the girls, and; delivers to them lecture on the preparation of tuch dishes as he selects, illustrating by actu- ually doing the work before them, and making them do it. They run a laundry a restaurant, and a dressmaking establish ment in the house,, to the end that it shall be, not only of use to the girls by teaching,, them their duties, by actual practice, but that it shall be self-sustain ing, which it is. The school has taken thousands of poor girls who were starv ing because they did not know how to work, and" has turned them out capable and intelligent and worthy ot good work and good wages anywhere. The man ager of this sensible charity is Mrs. Ju lia Croson.'and is located at 47 East 'Tenth Street. A girl from this school is almost certain to be honest and capable. Housekeepers in want of good, trained servants will do well to make a noteof this. HIGH BUILDINGS. The mania now running among those who build at all is altitude. Some years ago the Equitable Life Insurance Compa nyso ran up a building that loomed above anything else on lower Broadway, and since that height, has run in the minds of everybody. The new Tribune build ing is nine'immense stories high, with a tower almost touching the sky ; the new building of the Western Union Tele graph Company is almost as high ; the Domestic Sewing Machine is eight ; the new post-office cannot be counted in sto nes, but it is nn enormous building, and so on. The view of the city from the Jersey City Fcrry ts becoming particu larly pleasant. These buildings, with the scores of others, tower up above their surroundings, relieving the monotonous" uniformity which formerly wearied tho eye. These Jail buildings do not pay in fact, every one or them is a dead loss above the fourth story ; but nevertheless, I hope- the building of them will go on. They beautify the city, and the public get a benefit whether the proprietors do or Knot It is ft flint that nnr. f ll,., buildings pay three per cent on the cost of construction and present price of ground ; but the proprietors all live in hope of the future. -Hope springs eter nal in the human breast" THANKSGIVING. was more generally observed in the city this year than ever before. All business except the saloons and restaurants, was -TOea, and the day was devo' , oo lily, bilarity, and what was ,fA charity. The various charitab- ,"t ''"' tutionsofthecity were 'nstliu- more than usual liberal' JPP1Ird -ty, and every 0'e. serving poor person in the city sot one good square meal. At the three-mission houses in the Five Points over 3.000 people were led. The prisons all pave the inmates a special dinner, and all hos pitals, charities and all other institu tions did likewise. The newsboys homes and lodging houses had a grand time. The little ragamuffins were baihed. their hair combed, and their clothes dust ed, and a good dinner given them, and for one day iu the year they were happy. It is to the credit of he citizens that hard as the times are, the cntrilm'i"S of provisions and other supplies were Mr beyond those of the preniediug year It went a long way to restoring c-mli d?nce in human nature, to see the enor minis piles of meats, cakes, bread, butler, and every other possible thing to eat piled up before the doors of the charm. all the tree gifts of citizens, and un solicited, exc. pt by the usual announce ments in the newspapers. Ttiero is some good in humanity yet. Services were of course held in all the churches, and to the credit of New York let it be recorded that th.-y were all crowded. Possibly the extra decoration, and the unusually superb music had something to do with the attendance. ti. camions were, as a rule, noa-secta- rian, the pastors cevoling themselves largely to tne grandest of all the virtues charity. t Beecher's church was literally lammed, and thousands were turned away. Bu siness being suspended, all the strangers in tire hotels went to see the hero or tue great scandal, which, in addition to the usual attendance, a made mighty throng BUSINESS continues to improve as the season goes on. much to the eratificfition ot the mer chants. Buyers begin to be absolutely lively, and something of the old time uas come back again. THE WEATHER ; u nleasant as it can be. It is not es pecially cold, and the skies are bright nd the air bracine and healtuy ; cons,e quently there is but little sickness in the citv. If business were only better, and employment for the laborers were not so scarce, the season would be a aenguuui one. But we can i nave every imuB. PIETRO. PIETRO. New York, Dec. 1, 1874. JOTTINGS BY THE WAY. Next in my route is North Bennington a small, but very thrifty, enterprising town, situated if I mistake not on Hoo sac River. There are several large mills for manufacturing prints, also paper mills for the manufacture ot wall and curtian paper. To the west of the village, is the palatial summer residence of T. W Prk a railroad man of New York. The house, 80x130 feet, is of wood, but splen did in all its appointments and surround inirs. The beautiful lawn is adorned with statues and elegant fountains. Sev eral hundred broad acres of fine farming lands immediately surround the house which, with all its appurtenances, cost $250,000. A few miles to the S. E. is the old and famous town ot Bennington population 4,000. It is widely scattered the oldest portion being to the north-west, on ridge, while the newer and business part. is in the volley, and near the stream, Here stands the immense mills of the Bennington Mfg. Co., now idle company having collapsed. The site, tenements for operatives, and the mill, filled with the finest ' of imported machinery, cost $650,000, and was sold for a song. To the west is Mt Anthony, 1,800 feet high forest-clad to its summit, on which stands au observatory 80 feet high. Next morning, returning to N. Bennington, proceeded westward to F. & B., and Har- lam Extension Junction and thence on B. railroad to Williamstown, Mass., nearly due east of Troy. It is a lovely town of 3,000 population, standing in a narrow valley, with mountains on nearly every side. To the south, "Grayback," and Mt Pisgah on the N. E. What gives it prom inence is William's College one of the first-class colleges of New England, and among the oldest There are nice college buildings, and besides there are society halls. The Old West College still stands, The fine new chapel is built of granite On the inner front wall is an inscription to the memory of Col. Ephraim Williams who fell in battle. He was the founder of the college. The gymnasium a splen did structure is also of granite. The observatory contains one of the largest and best telescopes in the country. As my time was limited, I could but pass around to the different buildings entering some, whose walls and recita tion rooms were, like old acquaintances, never to be forgotten. Memory was strangely active, and old scenes and 1 events came thronging up, and demand ing a passing notice. Passing up the steps leading from the chapel to the West College, I was forcibly reminded of an incident that transpired on that spot ma ny years ago. On the morning in ques tion, as the classes were returning from morning prayers, the "sophs" thought they would here find a favorable place to make a "rush" and prevent the freshmen gaining the terrace. The Professors had forsecn that trouble was brewing,, and ac cordingly took their places between the classes, thinking thereby to prevent, by their dignity, and august presence, any scene. But they did not weigh well the impudence and audacity of "sophs," for too often, they fear not God, nor regard man. Just as the Professors had'gained the terrace, came the "rush" each class struggling for the mastery regardless of the Prolessors, who were most rudely pressed and tossed about losing their " tiles" in the scrimmage. But freshmen muscle was too much for sophomore dash and impudence and they were the victors. Enough glory for one day ! Well, "boys will be boys," is an old adage, but may be equally well applied to boys of larger growth. . With a hurried visit to Lawrence Hall, and Library, aud a look at the large and fine new Congregational church edifice, I reluctantly bnde farewell to the time honored and classic walks of Williams-, town. Retracing my route, I made hurried visits to Hoosac Falls, Cambridge. Salem and Union Village. N. Y towns ranging from 1,500 to 3,000. The latter is one of the prettiest villages in Easteru New York. On the second day, I took the Troy & Boston train and soon was landed in the former city. As the train rolls in from the heights, the view of the Hudson, the large towns lutho suberbs yiz., Lausiue burgh. Waterford and Colioes is exceed ingly fine.
