Stationing the watchman one night the voyagers were started from the busli, and made their es cape and" have not yet returned to look after their treasure. Search being made, Collector Rice found tour casks of common whisky, and one box of Scotch, and took possession of them. lie also found where three other packages had been removed, The parties who took French leave were Bill Furguson and Frank Whelplev. The boat has been taken charge of and the contra band goods sent to the Cleveland custom house. Collector Rice has received a letter of commendation from his superior officer, for his vigilance and prompt action. Whisky Smuggling. Meeting of the County Commissioners. The County Commissioners by invita tion met a number of our citizens at the office of E. H. Fitch, Esq., on Wednesday p. m., for a conferrence on the subject of the proposed expenditures upon the jail buildings at Jefferson. These gentlemen were on their way to the infirmary to meet the directors, and thence to Conneaut. Stories were in circulation t))at an expendi ture of some $20,000 was contemplated, and the amount of tax levied for building purposes, had this matter in view. Our people naturally wished to hear from the commissioners the facts in the case and the action taken by them so far (is it had trans. pired. The interview was informal and took a colloquial turn of a more or lets general character. .It turned out that no plan had been matured, but that an architect had been consulted on the plan of repairs and enl&rgment, on the basis of a new brick building for the sheriffs residence 34 feet square and an extention of the jail build ing proper, so as to obtain twenty cells in stead of eleven as no .v. This plan embrac es the taking out of the present cells and the infrod.uetion of new ones of new mate rial iron and steel, at an estimate of $500 each. It appeared that ventilation was one of the principal objects sought, as the stench was intolerable aud unwhole some, and could only be secured by this change. The building fund had been in creased an amount nearly equal to the amount of this estimate, but the road and bridge fund had been diminished to such an extent as to make the road and bridge and building funds about the EftBie as last year. They appear to have thought that the outlay of $15,000 would have been a needed one. It was, however, dis covered that a statute was in existence, which limited these outlays by the commis sioners for one object, to $10,000. Of course this is final and will limit that action. Messrs." Morrison, Fassett and Hall lead p the conversation,- disclaimed for their, fellow citizens, any factious opposition to reasonable and necessary expenditures, tint counciled economy, an4 the bringing of such repairs down to what seemed reasons ble and neoessary, The. building of a thirty four feet square building for the residence of the sheriff, when we are over run with candidates, accepting the situation freely as it is, it was rather thought to be outside of such reasonable expenses. The conclusion of the whole matter seemed to be that the legal limitation might be approached without much opposition from this quarter. Congressional Correspondence. Mr. Xorthway publishes in the Con neaut Reporter, the following announce ment of withdrawal from the Congressional field. It is not, perhaps, very surprising, as it has been very plain to see that there is not a ghost of a chance for any new man, while the present incumbent is in the field. But this is no special disparagement of Mr. Northway. His standing and talents are not depreciated, only as he is brought into comparison with Mr. Gar&eld and his sur. roundings, and the measure of usefulness on the part of one is viewed in the light of the .other. When the place shall be vacant and Mr. Northway shall be brought for ward, he will find that he enjoys as fully as almost any other man likely to be named, the high regard and confidence of his fel low citizens, find command! m largely the chances for preferment in the line indi cated. It is to be regretted we think that his friends should have seen fit to an nounce his name at this time, but having done so, their best course has been taken under the circumstances. The sentence of his announcement "I am satisfied that my candidacy does not meet with the ap proval of the majority of the Republicans of the district," to have a full concurrence with the facts in the case, should have been rounded oft with thigfurthur truism at this timet To the RepuMiain Voters of tht Nineteenth Congresnoiuil District : Soma time ago my name was announced as a candidate for Congress in this district. 1 will not now say what consideration in duced me to be a candidate.

A. NORTHWAY. Jefferson, O., August 8, 1876. ASHTABULA COUNTY NEWS. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS. ORWELL. Eds. Tel: The movement in wool has shown a little life in a business way. The clip has nearly been bought up at thirty and thirty-five cents. Butter and u.;.-e. e. though rather dull, are not without some movement. Fanners are therefore feeling somewhat better. Cattle are of slow sale. and low. Buyers are not plenty, and the present outlook is not favorable. The oat crop is now in, and the busy hum of the threshing machine is heard in the land. Blackberries plentiful aud larjre, and selling from three to five cents a quart S. E. Leslie, of Windsor, is running off goods at bottom prices. For instance: prints at five and five and one-half cents. lie also ivs liberal prices for produce. He ships the present week one ton of butter to Chas. Hi 'ley & Co., J.ew ork. S. E. Carter ships on Friday two hun dred boxes of Windsor cheese to I has. Higley & Co., Xew York. Kobt. Stewart, the owuer of the Grant quarrv, in Windsor, is doing a heavy busi ness. He has opened a splendid quarry of white sand stone, lie has a force of twenty-five men at work, and is shipping stone in almost every direction Pitts burgh, Austinburg, Ashtabula, Andover, etc., anil is doing a large business in bridge building. A short time since a heavy bolt of elec tricity struck the somke-stack of Wiu. Be dell's shop, and came down into the mom, and went through the floor, near where Mr. Bedell and others were standing. Bill says the shock was felt for some time after wards in his legs and toes. Rev. C. T. Shipman preaches in the errove on the plank road, near Windsor Corners, tin the last Sunday of August, it being his yearly appointment. A large gathering will no doubt be on hand to hear - HIG. SAYBROOK. Eds. Tel : Vegetation begins seriously to feel the want of rain; the dust is deep in the road; vines wilt tnrougn me day; but let the effect bo what it may on the growing crops, the larmers nave just se cured as heavy a growth of hay as they have had for years. Oats were seemingly good, though the berry may be light, and man and beast can go through the coming winter with comparative comfort. There is some sickness just now. Rev. J. B. Hammond and his daughter Iluttie are slowly recovering from what appears to be a low type of the typhoid fever. Of the three recent deaths in town, James McKen- zie had been sick nearly two years, a por tion of the time a great sufferer. He had lived many years in Saybrook, and was well known here. Mrs. Caroline Colby was a great sufferer, also, from cancer, for many months before her death. Charles Tuttle, Sen., died on Monday, of heart disease, having been snk but a few days. The funeral was largely attended at the house to-day, at ten a. m., Revs. Latimer and Dunmire officiating. Mr. Tuttle was in the eightieth year of his age, and for more than half a century was identified with the history of the county. Haddie Brockett started for Kansas yes terday, partly for the purpose of restoring her health, which had been somewhat im paired by teaching. We hope she will return by and by with health restored, and that a long life of usefulness may be hers. The Woman's Foreign Missionary Socie ty will hold an open meeting on Sunday evening next, at the Congregational Church. The Ladies' Aid Society have recently taken the matter in hand of beautifying the Methodist Church. The walls have been calcimined, the wood work thorough ly cleaned, and now there is pressing need of the exterior of the church being painted, in ' order to have the outside and inside alike. The paint and the oil have been purchased with the funds of the society, and now let the men have vim enough to do their part. The walls of the new brick schoolhouse in district number four are up, and the roof is on, and when the inside work is done, Saybrook will have five brick school houses, located in districts number two, three, four, seven and thirteen. A word about the Congressional nomina tion. The undersigned has no doubt that James A. Garfield is the right man in the right place, and .that it would be a grave error iu the Republicans of this district to make a change just now. Saybrqpk gaye Qpv. Hayas ejghtyiig.ht majority last fall, and we mean this fall to a J. J. Saybrook, August 9th, 1876. KINGSVILLE. Edi. Tel : Is there any surprise on the part of genuine Republicans at so much interest manifested in our Congressional campaign? The fact is apparent to every one with half an eye, that General Gar field holds a warm place in their hearts, and to return him to Congress they will use all honorable means. The position taken by some of the anti-Garfield men that by running him with all the opposi tion, the vote for Hayes would be materi ally lessened in November. This weak argument, is, perhaps, the best that can be offered. Wonder if in the campaign when " Old Gid " was supplemented by John Hutchins, of Warren, whether the latter's friends did'not try that plea? Of course, our old champion, Joshua R. Gid dings had his opponents among nominal Republicans, resulting from his positive character, and we may be expected to wonder if they did not try the pathetic to of in appeal on old "benighted Ashtabula" Republicans at that time. Will the signers to the Northway call please ask themselves how thin they would have regarded such a plea at that time? We well remember how indignant the old staunch Republicans felt about tho case taken by the Warrenites and the only conclusion was that, infatu ated by a strong desire for tho offloe, its patronage and elements, they lost sight of everything else. The parallel to this can be left open for your readers to consider. Rev. Edwin Dibell occupied the Baptist desk yesterday. Thn calculation now is to repair the church edifice both painting and papering buildine new stens and taking away the front: tBnn ni thn. improving the grounds and all very much. They as yet have not got a successor to Mr. Hough, but will, probably, ere lonir. make arrangements with some one. Peck, the painter, is plying the brush to good advantage. The new coat of Daint with trimmings makes the residences of N. Case and Dr. E. M. Webster con spicuous models of neatness. Mr. E. F. B'own and lady have arrived home from the Centennial, New York and Niagara Falls trip, with that stereotyiied degree of pleasure common to all on such a circuit cl rare attractions. Ourlforth Kingsville friends are getting up a .very neat church edifice. As the ex terior draws nearer completion it obtains increased favor. The style of architecture, with location of spire, makes it unique, aud, though without pretending character- vUc, and, seemfngly, with its modestJ look, being of modest capacity, it yet will prove, when done,' to be even, in that respect, with most any other country church. The only concern we may ever have is that with all such edifices the dedi cation of the same may conduce to as much harmony in the spiritual as in the temporal, in which case only will success come out of it. The present workmen uim it, Ira Holden, John Dick and George Lyon, have nearly completed their part of the work, and yet it is expected ere the season closes. the whole will be -flushed. The Choral Union is toon to resume the handling so called of different music. Sufficient copies of the "Twelfth Mass have been purchased; and our Fall and Winter work is before us, if the rendering should finally be made compatible with the author's design. Prof. Howard went to Towando, Pa., some four weeks aeo. in attendance on a Musical Institute, intending to take in the Centennial ere his return. Our depot boys are getting limited in number, since the railroad managers have, in their extensive discharges, sought to cut down expenses. Thev say that with the reduction of wages, reduction of numliers, and increased duties, they have a right to complain somewhat. That matter at Amboy, concerning the placing of a Mrs. Ford in the county house, has quieted down, judging from reports. She is back in the neighborhood, among friehns, and, though adjudged insane, is G. Kingsville, August 8th, 1876. MORGAN. The Methodist and Disciple Sunday Schools, at the instance 'of tho former, united in a pic-nic, at Thompson's Ledge, on Friday of the present week. Some little interest was raised oyer a law suit, at this place, on Saturday last, before Justice Hoyt. It was brought by M. M Root against James Gladding, for trespass in that the defendant entered upon the possessions of the plaintiff, for the purpose of gathering blackberries; It seems Root hus large possessions and a good sized farm, used for pasturage. -In this tract blackberries are very plentiful, and the villagers, in large numbers, repair thither with teams to pick them, and are not par ticular about the manner in which the fences are left. The cattle are let out, and great annoyance and loss of time, and, s we learn, in one instance, the loss of one animal, resulted.-'-The' object is to see what virtue there is in law to relieve him self from the annoyance. Messrs. Means & Clsr!:, .t iLc otiticn, purchasing new potatoes at prices ranging from thirty to forty cents. They say this one is the only article of produce they dare touch. Messrs. Dean & Moses are doing a good business in factory butter. .They are said to be making an "excellent article, and find ready market in L ncle samuel, at forty cents a pound. It is all packed in pound packages, by machinery. Brady, of Orwell, who bought the Rath- bone & St. John stock, is opening the store formerly occupied by II. R. Latimer, and stocking up, with the design of offering the public a large assortment to select from, but whether for the purpose of building up permanent business, or only to dispose of the old stock, is not stated. Dr. Magher is out in a new and tasteful rig, that betokens prosperity. Wilcox & Sons are making considerable shipments to Boston of rough leather, the product of their own tannery. They com plain that the margin is narrow, but they cannot afford to eat the bread of idleness. Our old friend, Ed. Wright, ig circulating around in the Northway interest, but the township will send a Garfield delegation. Complaint is made of hard times of the difficulty of making ends meet. -One of the causes named is the great loss suffered by a large number of farmers in that sec tion by the burning of the East Trumbull cheese factory and the large stock on hand. The loss falls heavily upon those who made their dairy products a dependence for ready cah, The new factory is about L. WASHINGTON. Eds. Tel : Probably the greatest politi cal debate since the war was that between Lamar of Mississippi, late a Confederate Colonel, and Garfield of Ohio, an ex-union General, Lamar's speech was the most powerful argument that has been made upon the Democratic side of the controversy since the war. At its close he was loudly ap plauded by the Democratic side of the House, and by a part of the gallery. Garfield, who by common consent, was to reply to him, cat directly in front of him, an attentive and watchful listener. The scene 'was one to be remembered. These two giants in intellect who had met and crossed swords upon the field of civil war, were now pitted against each other in the area of debate. Lamar, the recognized leader apd champion of the South, sprang into the arena with the mighty force of fiery and persuasive eloquence to contend the lost vestige of subordination of race. Garfield with the steadier and might ier force of irresistable logic, and devotion great principles, towered above his an tagonist, showing a wider range and larger grasp' of the subject, while his eloquence surpassed even the fiery Lamar, and the close of his speech was suoh an ovation of applause as is given to few men to listen to. The greatest compliment upon his speech was the hurried introduction and passage of the school amendment within a half hour after he closed, as a result of his arraignment of the Democratic majority for their opposition to a measure calculated lift this great qnestion out of the arena political strife and place it forever upon the high plane of a constitutional amend ment. This last speech of Gaifield's is one that every man, Democratic or Republican, his district, may well be proud of. A BUCKEYE. Washington, August 6, 1876. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. The Weather—The Chinese in New York—Polities in the Metropolis— Desolation of the City—Children's Summer Hospitals—Vanderbilt and his Schemes—Business. THE WEATHER, which is the most important matter about New York, just now, has moderated a little, aud it is once more possible to sleep. Nevertheless, it is yet too hot for either comfort or health. The heated term has been the most terrible ever known, and has swelled the mortuary list to a degree that is absolutely frightful. Children have perished by the thousands, and almost an equally large number of adults have suc cumbed to the more than torrid heat. One woman in Baxter street has assisted in pre paring one hundred and thirty-four child ren for burial. And right here let me say that there has scarcely been an instance of death from among the ranks of the tem perate. The men who have avoided the use of alcoholic drinks, when sunstruck, almost invariably recovered, and when recovered were as good as new. But when a whisky or beer drinker went down it was generally down for good, and it is a matter of fact that the drinking classes were an hundred fold more liable to be struck than the temperate. The temperanoe people can make use of this as they may, but all the city physicians vouch for its truth. . CHINAMEN are invading New York in large numbers There are now three thousand of them here and with their opium dens and jost-housM, they are just as filthy, just as industrious, and just as harmless here as in San Fran cisco, and follow the same occupations. They wash, make cigars, and keep street stands, pay their debts, save some money, and gamble and smoke the best of their earnings away. They inhabit Baxter street, here, as everywhere else, selecting as their headquarters the most filthy and squallid portion of the city. They have only one joss-house as yet, though another one of larger dimensions and more aristo cratic in style, is in contemplation. The number is increasing very rapidly, and as the great colony in San Francisco is send ing vast colonies Eastward all the time, it is very probable that in a few years the territory iu and about Baxter street will be something like Dupont street in San Fran cisco, and that in New York the religion of Confucius and the Chinese theatre and Chinese amusements and customs will have established themselves firmly in New York, Well, let them come. They are a harmless, industrious and honest people, who work and never want offices. There is some comfort in that. POLITICAL. The Democracy are worried because Tilden and Hendricks can't agree upon their letter of acceptance.; and, give them a show to open the campaign. They see that while they are delaying for this opening the dissatisfied Republicans are rapidly returning to their old resting place, that as Hayes and his character are becom ing better understood the intelligent Dem ocracy are growing very cold toward the mulatto ticket mode at St. Louis, and that, in short, unless Tilden comes to the front very soon the battle is lost for them before it is fought. The truth is, half the decent Democracy don't want Tilden elected in any event. They know him to be tricky and unreliable, and they feel confident that in the case of his election they are sold out, He professes to be a hard-money, resump tion man, and why he don't come out and say so, instead of paltering with Hendricks aud fixing up declarations that mean noth ingir' puzzles them and they feel that they are sold iu them. Everybody knows where Hayes stands on these quest ions, and no one will vote in the dark voting for him. Tilden is one of those exceedingly acute, small men, who overreach themselves. He has no honesty himself and does not believe that any one else has. He acts upon the theory that all men are as dishonest as himself, exeept the simpletons, and he very largely overestimates the dimensions of the latter class. He is foolish enough to sup pose that the rank and file of the Democ racy will accept any quibble for the sake of success, and be is paltering with them in that way, Hayes will carry the State of New York as sure as fate. Think, my readers, of a man who is nominated on a platform expressing the views of a great party, on a great question, who has to have two conferences with his associate, and four sessions of a committee to decide as to what he does believe, and as to what he is to do in case of his election! This very delay is a trick that will defeat him, for it is evidence of dishonesty and insincerity. The Republicans are very active and are pushing things delightfully. VAXDERBILT, old as he is, and sick as he is, is rapidly recovering, and will get out to business again, lne old man is de ermined not to die till he has completed his four track road through to. Chicago, and possibly farther west, and bas demonstrated the superiority of rail over all other means of transportation. . Even during his illness he has pushed his warehouses and his other improvements in the terminal facilities of bis roads, with a view of saving the grain trade to this city, which is being diverted to Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston. He has during his illness received builders, mechanics and railroad officials, every day, and when he was too weak to speak he made them understand what he wanted by writing or sings. He will do business as long as he has a breath, and will be felt as long as there is life in him. His vitality is wonderful, and it would not be singular if he should be an active man for twenty years yet. He has been a temperate man, Ho has worked all his life, but has worked very systematically. He will work all the season till about the 1st of July, when he goes to Saratoga, and stays there till Octo ber. He reads exactly one mail every day while at the Springs, and answers it by an amanuensis, and then amuses himself till precisely half-past nine, when he retires and sleeps." He indulges in stimulants very sparingly, and is very careful of his diet. He is a fearful card player, always plays for money, and the stakes must be high enough to make it worth while to play. Curious stories are told of his card playing, some of which are doubtless true. He is as merciless at poker or point euchre as he is at business, and woe be to the poor or careless player who falls into his hands. It is business with him, and he pursues the game just as eagerly as he pursues his real business. As the chase was accounted as miniature war in England, so gentlemanly gambling with Vanderbilt is the next thing to businees, and he follows it with as much zest. Now that Drew is gone, Vanderbilt and Jay Gould are the only railroad mag nates left, and it is not probable that they will ever lock horns again. The old vet eran has got too much to do to perfect the railroads he now controls, and Jay Gould's interests and his do not conflict. THE CHILDREN'S SUMMER HOSPITAL. Among the charities which benevolent ingenuity is constantly devising, the Sum mer Hospital for Children deserves free handed support. The excursion of St. John's Guild floating hospital boat, which takes thousands of sick children and their mothers every day up theriver for pure air, has made a difference at once in the death rate among children. But ten hours a week of wholesome living out of the stink- ng dens the poor call home, is enough to keep life in them, but hardly, enough to make sound children of them. The plan was devised for a temporary hospital or home, in one of the healthiest places on the river, where sick children could be sent for fortnight at a time, in the dangerous part of the season. .The charity is not an ex travagant one. The buildings are of the plainest, airiest description; the food in the country is fresh and cheap, and the cost of the whole affair is decidedly less than that of the steamboat excursions, The poorest women in the city can have her sick child sent there and get the best care taken of it for weeks, without a dollar of expense to herself. In this fearful sea son, while the childien of well-to-do people are dying like sheep, it is a great mercy that suoh saving help is extended to those who else had no choice but to see their covetously-loved children sicken and die without the least alleviation of their suffer ings. ou DESOLATION. The oity is almost abandoned. The rich fled from the terrible heat to their villas at Newport and to the cool shades of Sara toga; those in moderate circumstances are at the thousand and one sea-side places, and up in the mountains, the artists and Bohemians are up North, whore tliey can keep cool and live very cheaply, and only the unfortunate business men who cannot get away are in the city The theatres are closed, as are all places of amusement, the stores are empty, and the hotels are like Saharas in their stillness. The only trade there is comes from the Centonnlal folk who are nassinir backward and forward through the city, and they leave very little money her. Those going want aii to ste th big show with, and whsn thsy ro i the the turu they want to get home as quickly as possible. And New York lies inert, baked, still and discouraged. Let us hope there will lie a revival, with the cool breezes of September,.- 5 ' BUSINESS is still wretchedly dull, and failures were more frequent this week than last, and of rather larger dimensions. t There , are a great many firms that have yet got to go under, and the sooner they go the better. The volume of trade is reduced, and so many houses are not necessary to do it. The strong ones will survive and be strong er for the cleaning they have gone through, but the weak ones will inevitably go under, and they might as well do it to-day as to hold over a few weeks. The man who was worth $1,000,000 four years ago is to-day worth $125,000, and he might as well make up his mind to it and take it cheerfully. The bottom is out, and it is out fairly. We PIETRO.
