Fire was discovered about 2 o'clock, on Monday p. m., while the family were at dinner, in the house of P. H. Watson, Esq. The firemen soon responded to the alarm, and found indications of fire un der the roof of the main building, and flame creeping tip between that and tbe wing on the north side, affording tolera- ablc good evidence of having taken from a flue ot the beater. Some damage was done from breaking through walls to get at the fire, and probably much more from the flooding of water. The amount o f damMge we have not heard stated, but learn it is covered by insurance. The firemen and citizens generally, showed commendable promptness and earnest ness in giving every possible aid. bis and to and Police Notes.

The fancy or interest that any one may have in anything novel, uuique, natural or supernatural, could be made to subserve a good purpose, if sent to P. O. Box 63, Kingsville. This docs not contemplate a relaxation of ef fort or observation on our part. Of course, information eatbered from others in ibis way, as well as that which comes within our own observation, may sometimes do the best we can have errors. Facts, however, are what are most wanted, and any failure to secure these will only show that "to err is human." Good news conuected with religion interests, comes to us from the old world as well as the new, and while we can lay no claim to special interest here, our three weekly prayer meetings have their stereotyped list of attendants; and while the attendants are few, they are not strangers to spiritual enjoyments and growth. These, with the monthly union meetings lor prayer, in the main, must conduce to increased and permauent de votional feeling. The labors of our pas tors are faithful and untiring. The Rev.

The wild, howling November blasts as of old are ours to-day, but the dig ging of tubers is about over. The stimu lus for that work has been from strong economic principles, for it can hardly be from the price, when twenty odd bushels are but into a man's cellar for a sum not exceeding three dollars. Our band has been seeking to improve their exchequer by a little concerting, but the clerk of tl.e weather has proved a little wayward and contumacious, and ruthb'ssly disappointed some well found ed hopes.

Fire was discovered in Spencer's cheese factory, at MechamcsvHle, Aus tlnburg tiwnship aboqt o'olock, on tbe morning of Friday, tbe 5th. The fire was near the roof and under considerable headway when first seen, leaving little or no hope of saving tbe building. Atten tion was turned cto saving the contents. Two vats, some small fixtures and eight cheeses were saved. A month's cheeses were in the drying or upper room all of which were lost valued at some $700, The building was iusured in the Home N.

Tbu factory had been twice on fire before, aud the hamlet had suffer ed by other sad and serious conflagra tlons such as to make its misfortunes i n this line, a marked feature of Its history The above facts of tbe fire are mainly from the limes. The Rev. O. Parker, an evangelist with the help of a Mr. Clark, has ben lea boring for some two or three weeks at Austinburg, with good effect, and the fruits of bis labors have been very pal pable, awakening much thoughtfulness in the direction of the better way.

As an event of some importance has just taken place in our town, I take the liberty of giving your readers and the public the benefit of it. It is no less than the abdication of tbe venerable chairman of the Democratic Central Committee. His official tenure, and un remitting toil and labor reach back half a century, and the care of having called and guided not less than forty successive conventions. Beside this, he has gobbled tbe whole of each and every ticket, and voted it without a scratch. - This is car rying a weight of responsibility tbat few men could stagger under up to the 71st year. It Is hard to see how he has been able to keep the perpendicular, from, say, Jackson to Horace Greeley, or from Tod and specie, to the late rag-baby. Such turning and twisting, too, to be all the time consistent with . the perpendicular, on the old party plank, shows no mean attainment in acrobatic posturing. He is determined to paddle bis own canoe down, cown, down thorough and mud dy stream, until he flops oyer into the abyss below. Let us hope that his wind will hold, and his convictions so far get the advantage of his waywardness as to lead bim to strike out for the peaceful shores where good Republicans go. and where Mother Church purgatory end edhe shall be premitted to enjoy the SIMON.

The best safeguards against epidemic diseases are thorough digestion and firm nerves. It is be cause they assure the regular performance of the di gestive process, and Invigorate the nervous sys tem, that Hostetter's Stomach Bitten are such a sovereign protective against the Influences which beget Intermittent maladies, and those which di rectly affect the stomach and bowels. If the nerves were healthy and tranquil, the aaslmilatioa of food per tec t as they are sure to be under tbe lnfluene of this standard tonic and nervine, mala ria mar be defied ; and If, in the absence of the most tellable of medical safeguards, the system has Allien a prey to disease of an Intermittent or remittent type, the Bitters will, if persisted In, eradicate every vestige of the malady. Bilious ness, constipation and dyspepsia yield with equal certainty to the operation of this potent vegeta ble alterative. Oysters forthe Season!
