A nrivala sonial nart.v. is to be P"1T- - K" I ------ en at the Opera House, at an early day. John C. Thompson has bought the house formerly owned by Joseph Crosby. Ex-Mtyor Talcott returned fron New York last Saturday looking a happy as ever. The nomination 6f J. A. Howells, as Postmaster of Jefferson has been con firmed. . We assure the Sentinel,! that we have adhered to the arrangement of the county press with reference to "Resolutions of Respect." The ice prospect since Tuesday has been looking up. Tuesday night was a very commendable sample of winter, and pipes and pumps felt the strain. Mr. H. J. Toplcy Btarted for Dayton last Thursday, for a week's visit among relatives there. During his absence Mr. R. C. Warmington will take charge of his business. The masquerade party given by the Light Guards, at the Opera House, last Thursday evening was well attended, and a very pleasant affair. The gross receipts were $130. Tax collector Jones, was in one of our stores the other day, and laid a package of tax receipts, on what he took to be a show case. It however proved to be an aquari um half full of water. Alex. Thorn, whose long absence has left him a somewhat uncertain place in the memories of some of his many acquain tances, was in town on a flying visit on Thursday last, from New York. "Madam Dunlap's Female Minstrels," or rather a second edition of Montpelier's Varieties of Cleveland, gave a very poor entertainment at the Opera House last Tuesday evening, to a small audience. The Northern Ohio Fair Association is to try its hand again in September next, with another fair. Our citizens will be glad to know this, as they have alwa s taken much interest in the fairs at Cleve land. - Paulus Post No. 4 6. A.

The Pittsborgh & Lake Erie Rail Road, ia nearly all graded from Youngs- town to the State line. The work is being pusbod forward with the greatest vigor and it is expected the road will be open for business early in the coming Summer. Cashier Blyth, showed us the other day, the circular issued to the National banks in reference to the four per cent loan. The advantages of the loan, besides its perfect safety, and its freedom from all taxation, are the quarterly payments of in terest Edward Reilly of Ashtabula, says the Cleveland Berald of Wednesday morning, reports to the police that his son, sixteen years old, left home in company with an other boy on Monday, and haa not been beard of since. He is supposed to be in this city. s Prof, H. M. King, of Lenox, isdrillirg the Conneaut Band, who have lately been supplied with new instruments throughout. The Professor's competency as an instruct or has become pretty well established, hi.;1 the Conneaut boys will no doubt confirm the fact. Capt. W. C. Haskell of the Ashtabula Light Guards tendered his resignation lo to his Company last Monday evening. We re pleased to know however, that he W:.a unanimously reelected. Mr. Haskell make an excellent officer and as such the com pany appreciates him. The publishers of the Sentinel will ac cept our thanks, for a measure and scale prices for legal advertisements. It is Tery great convenience, showing at glance the number of legal squares in nri advertisement, and the prtpe lor pul lishing it, for one or more weeks. At the Coyuty Teachers' Examination, held in tnis village last Saturday, the wire present 22 applicants; 19 ladies, ai 3 gentlemen. Of these, 8 received certificates; two i.f thera for the Primary departments of gr i ded schools ; one for two years, and tie 4ther for 18 months. The six general cer tificates were one for a year, and 5 for six jnontbi. . f Excessive beer drinking ia claimed to be a fruitful cause of dropaey. It ia as serted on the best authoiity, that, one of our own citizens, who is now suffering from dropsical affection, ace irding tn his own admission, has been in the habit of indulging t the extent of five galons a day. Our Friend Rieg, of the Brp-fter, we nee, is revolving the idea of visiting the Pari Exposition. We shall be pleased U. know that the fraternity of the oounty are represented in so genteel a manner. It is s mewhat doul.tful shout our being able to leave. Our neighbor will do us a kindness in case of our absence by presenting our regrets to Gen. Mc-Mabon. The relics of the "Bridge Disaster," for which no claimants have appeared, re main in the hands of the jury of inquest, with no intelligent idea of how to make a legal disposition of them They are not'of sufficient value to warrant any cousider b!e effort or expense, and yet the aid and advice of Sanator Hnwland has bet-n sought to no purpose, and stili they lie on hand. Speaking of the new coal fields re cently opened in Canfield, the Niles In dependent says: The price of this coal is so much cheaper that it threatens to take the lead of all other kinds. The price at the mine en cars is eignty-five cent per ton, the freight to Niles, sixty cents, making the cost at this place one dollar and forty-five cents per ton by the car load. Col. Realf of Pittsburgh, whose elo quence thrilled our citizens, at the time our Temperance Union was formed, is electrifying the G. A. R. Pests of the county with his "Battle Flashes." He was at Conneaut on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings, and is to speak again on Sunday evening on temperance. He is a power, and will accomplish much good. The Watrous comer lot, embracing a dwelling and blacksmiths shop, at the Harbor. 50 by lOo, has been within a few days, bought by Mr. Francis Payne of Cleveland, for $1,730. Possession has not yet been given of the bouse, but Mr. Payne being a blacksmith, haa entered in to possession of the shop, make full hours very much as though he meant buainess. Besides being a good mechanic, he has the requisite energy and industry, to turn it to the best account. His pur chase is evidence of a level head. The house of John W. Wetmore, of Plymouth, took fire on Wednesday of last, week about one o'clock P. M.,' during the absence of the fainily.and was entirely con sumed. When discovered, the neighbors gathered and were enabled to save a few articles only. How the fire took is not known: but our informant Mr. Samuel Burnett, who live in the neighborhood thinks it probably took from burning soot, dropping down the chimney, and commu nicating with a fire board. There was an insurance on the house, of $1,600, and the loss will be about $1,000. The Geneva sportsmen,, as we notice by an article in the Standard have taken steps towards visiting the inflictions of law upon the heads of those who, in vio lation, of the statute law are' shooting the pigeons, that are roosting and feeding in various parts of this county. While at Rock Creek the other day, we learned that a regular fusilade is carried on every night among the birds found in that town ship. As one person stated, it is a good business each morning to go over the ground and pick up the birds knocked down over-night and overlooked ",in the darkness. The Ashtabula Temperance Union was reorganized on Tuesday evening of last week, and the old officers reelected. President McCoy,, however, declined to serve, and bro. Jaques who had been sec retary, was pushed forward to fill the va cancy, while that left by him, was filled by Mr. Pettibone. Regular weekly meetings are now to be held on Friday evenings at the Hall on Center street. It is to be hoped that some of the same fervor and ef ficiency, which characterized the first sea son of the Union, may again be enjoyed, and the work be blessed with even more of the salutary effort which followed the first efforts. Messrs Blakeslee and Moore, have en- gaped the services for a short time, of Mr. W. C. North, who, as a photographic ar tist, has few equals, and no superiors. Under his directions the establishment is undergoing a refitting in all its depart ments. Specimens of Mr North's pictures are to be seen, that leave no room for ques tion, that he is in the very van of the pro fession. Some of his specimens, we have never seen approached. He takes the head, of life size, direct, without the pro cess of throwing up. and the full figure in cabinet size, is a very satisfactory dimen sion; whether our citizens are prepared to order pictures or not, it will pay them to drop in and see what the camera is capa ble of in the hands of a really skillful man ipulator. A rich entertainment seems to be in store for our citizens on the evenings of the 24 and 25th at the Opera House. It is nothing less than an exposure of the pre tentions of spiritualism by W. Irving Bish op a name that is new to ns but which is accompanied . by the endorsements. of the leading minds of New York, Brooklyn, Boston, etc., embracing the clergy, D. D.'s M. D.'s Governors, college officers and fac ulties, the press, and in fact such an array of testimonials as affords the highest and most satisfactory evidence of the character, honesty and capability of the lecturer. His programme of exposures covers all the profound and complex deciptions that have been the more prominently practiced upon man's credulity. There is evidently fun ahead. We dropped into the Standard office the other day, wishing to reciprocate some of the social courtesey of that establish ment, and just to see how the Senior man aged to compose his limbs to the tripod. The drudgery of the form we know by theory, ' is pretty rough on the muscle, and especially its flexibility, but we know that political cast ha something to do with a fellow's supleness. We however failed to find either the Senior or the Jun lor in. cio we took a deliberate and in terested survey of a Democratic printing office. The conclusion arrived at was rather a disappointment and vexation, for everything about it was in such perfect order and cleanliness. It was just like a man after getting into clean linen. There was nothing of that rag-tag-and-bob-tail attribute about it, which we are in the habit of associating- with that persuasion There was no bad smell about it no flavor of Leer or whiskey. Everything wore an air oi soonety ana propriety, and the comparison with the more immaculate Re- bublican offices even the Teleoraph it self was favorable and creditable. We were rather inclined to the belief that Bro. Fardon's political nursing had been drawn from Republican mammals, and tnat be had become demoralized by falling into bad company. We shall call again and see bow that is. Pittsburgh and Lake Erie R. R. The grading of the Youngstown & Pitts burgh railway is finished from Hazelton to Ioweli. By the 15th of next month the Mad-bed will be ready for the laying of ties from this city to a point six miles east of Lowell, in all about sixteen miles. Youngstown News. Death of H.O. Tombes. The rather suddeu indisposition of Mr. U. C. Torabes, noticed last week, was such as to shake the confidence of friends in his recovery. Yet he seemed to rally and hold ibe improvements gained, fioiu uaY to day so tht hope was revived and the thought was indulged that his dissolution miht not be as near at was at first apprehended. On Monday morning last, however, he had a seci nd attack which left little hope, and the friends were gathered in the expecta tion that they ware to take leave of him, but from this, too, there seems to have been a partial rally which continued until afternoon, when he was visited by a third shock which proved fatal. Mr. Tomles was yet a young man, being in his 5-ttli year. Though physically disabled he possessed a fine mental development, which with soundness of body might have qualified him for prominent usefulness. As it was, his indomilibie will and perse verance under his great disability and dis ci, urageinents, rising above his infirmities, and giving almost constant attention to business, showed that, he was no ordinary man. lie had a clear, ready and forcible mind which was shown in his powers of reasoning oral as well as written as the readers of the TedbbraPH have reason to know. He was soiiini in judgment and ju dicious in council. B'-side his qualiliesof mind he had many good qualities of heart sympathetic and generous, and strong in his love for his family, which was fully reciprocated with filial affection and confi dence. It was further shown in his ear nestness to make due provision for their comfort, bvfore he should realize in his own experience the uncertainty of life. It was this, do doubt that had much to do in stimulating his business attention and ac tivity. These efforts, were crowned with success, and when the time of his depart ure came, it found him with the rewards of his industry and "perseverance, around him, and the chief object of that industry atlaiued. His duparture will leave a va cancy in the business circles of our village, and he will be misser? by all but more es pecullyaud keenly, by Lis family and friends. The religious views of Mr. Tombes had for some yvars back been rather unsettled, and those who occasionally conversed with him believed him to be a spiritualist. His views then and since have been a subject of some speculation. Lately he bee me more settled in his mind upon the Christ ian system salvation through the atone ment to which doctrine he has -since ad mitted his full belief. Just before his death, in conversation with the Rev. Mr. Safford, and while under the conviction that he was near his end, as we learn, he gave expression to the feeling that it was all welL This allusion is made with the object of meeting the interest felt by some of his acquaintances on the subject. The funeral services at the house on Wednesday afternoon were largely at tended, and were of deep and solemn in terest.

Railroads have done all for you they can, and more than you had any right to expect. In addition the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad is to be done within a year, direct from Baltimore, and through the great Pittsburgh coal fields, offering to pour into your lap the great wealth which it will carry to Lake Erie. Are you ready to receive it? Have you a foot of of private docks, or a coal firm ready to ake, handle and sell its coke and coal. Answer. Not one. $5,000, judiciously expended in private docks, would pay you back an hundred fold. You are the nearest port on Lake Erie to tide water. Have yon a single eleva tor to receive and ship the great wheat and grain product of our vast North-west, to Pittsburgh and Baltimore? Not one. While Erie and Cleveland have perhaps a dozen. You are within 60 miles of Port Stanley, Canada; but little over half the distance from any other port on the lakes.

The Herald's Youugstown correspondent - i .rill 1 says : un naay morning, aoout o cioca, the dead body of a man, with bis skull broken, scalp torn partly off, three fingers cut off, neck and one leg broken, and oth erwise injured, and with a broken bottle which had contained whiskey, was found lying face down, on the track, above the trestle-work over Crab Creek, of the Ashta bula, Youngstown & Pittsburg Railroad. An inquest was held, when it was ascer tained that his name was David McDonald, and that he had been working near Struth ers at grading the new road from here to Pittsburg. It had been pay-day on Thurs day. He came te town in the afternoon with his brother, bought a new pair of boots and a pair of overalls, both of which he had on when found. Then, meeting an acquaintance, they visited several saloons, and at one, about 7 in the evening, bought a bottle of whisky, from which all drank, and deceased took the bottle. They after ward separated. The acquaintance was found about 11 o'clock by a policeman, ly ing drunk in the street, and taken to the lockup, from which he was brought to tes tify before the coroner's jury. The broth er went back during the night as far as Hazleton by the public road, and the de ceased, when last seen by others, was near the railroad track, and it is supposed be was on his way back to Struthers on the track on which he had walked to the city when he was killed by the locomotive of the passenger train from' Pittsburg'which arrives nee'afc 7:50 P.

Tel: During the last few weeks of Decemlier, and the first of Jan., Elder Clark held a protracted meeting in the Free Will Baptist church, and "souls were added onto the Church as such as shall be saed." The people of this church have reason to be proud of their miuisier. He is an able man, and is quite popular. Shortly after the close of this meeting, his friends made him a douation visit, which was held at the residence of Mr. Henry Fox. Thursday evening, Jan. 17th. The evening was causally pleasant, and a large company came from far and ne :r, bringing baskets of good things, in erd less variety. After about one hundred persons had enjoyed the bountiful supper, they withdrew to the large upper hail, where Elder Clark gave a brief response of acceptance, heartily thanking his many friends for their kindness and liberality. concluding with a prayer. After which. many took part in the amusement of the hour, while others spent the evening in so cial intercourse. It was a very enjoyable time. G. MORGAN. Eds. Tel: The lecture of Rev.

The Grand Jury, we understand, found indictments against five of our people, as follows: Two against Andrew Bartlett and one against Henry Bartlett, for assault and battery; one each against John Crain, Sam'L J. Reynolds and John Sloat, for as sault and battery, and one against Sam'l. J. Reynolds for unlawfully breaking win dows. James C. Likely is nearly ready to open up full blast in his new place. Wayne Graham, eldest son of J. B. Gra ham Esq., is seriously ill with congestion of the bowels. Dr. James C. Marr is in attendance. Elder Baser, father of our Methodist pastor, is here again and is welcomed by his many friends. An evangelist, who, it is reported, has great powers, is to meet ns on the 31st of the month, and hold a series of meetings. We understand the elder Mr. Wilcox is visiting his aged mother in the Dominion. James Boyle, while carrying two pails of water the other day, slipped and fell, injuring himself quite severely. The clay roads in this vicinity are simp ly impassible, and business around the Corners is at a standstill. A very narrow escape from fire occurred at the Wilcox tannery on Tuesday even ing, about five o'clock. It was caused by the burning out of a huge drum, used for heating oue of their dry rooms. Jim Boyle and Bert Wilcox were handled pret ty lively by steam in putting out the fire ia a stove. A complaint was entered by Mr. H. J. Covell on Wednesdoy night before Justice Gardner, against the following gentlemen. for unlawfully shooting wild pigeons: James M. Thompson, William W.

Our back towns ask no odds of the larger tra ding centers for low prices, we can get dry goods, groceries, and mill feed, just as cheap or cheaper, than elsewhere. It seems from the reading of some of the city advertisements, that your city mer chants have an idea, that country pepole do not know what gooi'.s are worth ; but we do.aud can buy them cheaper at home than the advertised rates of city traders.

Tel: The gentleman so ously alluded to in the News in its last two numbers by its Austinburg correspondent, is one of our most esteemed, honored, and patriotic citizens and one of the most ready to lend his assistance in every good and and worthy cause for the interest and well fare of the community. He is not one of the "pillar sof the church," as asserted, and belongs to no church, and as for the "lottery watch" matter, he never spent a dollar for any such purpose. The falsity of those things laid at his door by this writer "Sassacus" are felt to be base and slanderous, and the feeling of indig nation is very general that any paper pre tending to any amount of respectability or even decency should give currency to these things without knowing something of the facts of the matter. If the Sews can. not fill its columns with something better and much more truthful, than the ordinary products of this writer, it would lie far better to add a patent outside also to that large patent inside county paper. If this would-be-lawyer and temperance lecturer would devote the time spent on his cuffs and collars, to securing a patent inside to his little, silly, conceited head, he might possibly get up an occasional 'etter con taining enough originality and common sense to make it readable, The few peo ple that read the Newt here, think that if the. writer would change the authography of his name to Silly-cuss, it would be more appropriate, and in keeping with the character of the items he labors so hard and fussily to gather. The wear and tear of brain over such struggles as he subjects himself to for even a single week are pain ful to think of, but when we calculate their duration for a vear. it becomes sad and fearful to contemplate. Considering his tender vears,there should be a little care taken and not to overt ax. either body or brain. K- Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton will deliver a lecture in the new church, for the bene fit of the Ladies' Building association on the 28th of January subject, "Our Boys." AH who have boys are invited and those who have girls only will not be excluded. HARBOR. There is some little activity at the Hiir bor. The moving of the old salt house of Hubbard & Co. at the end of the bridge, to give the proper width to the road, the rebuilding of the old burnt out Humphrey lime kiln, the landing and piling of staves by Capt. Hancock and the overhauling of the schooner Wm. Young, together with the ubiquitous attribute of the "good man at the wheel," the landlord of the Ocean Dining Saloon all combine two keep an antagonism with the usual winter stagna tion. - Ed. Fisk and his first officer Cul.

KINGSVILLE. etc. furnished by the Webster Post, G. A. R. as you stated last week was a success, and proved to be one of the most interest ing alfairs we have been permitted to at tend. Rev. S. L. Binckley had been en gaged to deliver a lecture at Academy Hall subject Geo. Washington. The teats in the lecture room were all occupied. Comrade M. W. Wright was in charge. A quartette consisting of Messrs. Luce, Howard, Brown and Grover opened with "A thousand years my own Columbia," which was followed with prayer by Rev. Mr. Williams. Another piece by the same performers, prepared the way for the lec ture. The remark when it was concluded. was, that our knowledge of Washing ton was very limited. Nothing could be better calculated to inspire the young man, and mould his character for true man hood. It would be well, if all the Posts of the county could listen to it. The exer cises at Academy hall closed with the "star spangled banner." The suppef was served at the Town Hall, where the crowd gathered for the enjoy ment of it so admirably prepared under the culinary attainments of Mrs. G. W. Rhen. After the last table had been served, Commander C. W. Kin near gave notice that the Pumpkin Pie Fair would now begin operations. Notice by circular was given, that as many as saw fit to enter a prize contest, might send in their pies. A committee was to be ap pointed to test the merits of the regular gradation of 1st, 2d and 3d best, with pri zes accordingly $3 for the first, a copy of Whittier's poems for the second, and 50 cents for the third. Some 25 or 30 genuine New England pies were brought in and submitted. A committee of five was se lected, and prepared for the onset. The Rev. Binckly moved the choice of a com mitted of three to watch the committee of five to see that the pies were not all con sumed, and Esq. Wright named the three Pastors, both of which motions were car ried, and an escort was deputed to con duct the committee to the place of service, in the midst of roars of laughter. Much humor and frolicsome repartee accompan ied the decisions of the judges. After which the pies were disposed of at auction. The first premium was awarded to Mrs. Wm. Carr second to Mrs. E. M. Curtis the third to Mrs. Woodbury. The re ceipts were generous, and the enjoyment in the fullest measure. The funeral of Alzono Marshall, of Kel loggsville was attended by the masons of Kingsville and Conneaut lodges, as it was the wish of the deceased that the order should preside at his funeral. The atten dance of citizens generally was also large. The exercises were at the Presbyterian church, and the discourse was by Rev. M. Shipman of Girard, Pa. a.. "Mum Social." The ladies of the Con gregational Church will give a mum social in their lecture room, next Tuesday even ing, Jan. 29th. In addition to the usual refreshments the young folks will indulge in a merry candy pull, under the supervis ion of the "Yankee Candy Man." All are invited.

The make up of the magazine places it in the van of American monthlies. , The current number of Scribner is one of those semi-annual ones which make their appearance in July and January, and are called mid-snmmer and mid-winter numhers.

Blakely has experienced a severe attack of typhoid fe ver, but is now convalescent. Mr. Geo. A. Colliss, of this place, was arrested and taken to Cleveland, on Wednesday of last week, charged with re issuing stumps from old cigar-boxes. He was arraigned before Commissioner While on Thursday, and on hearing was beund over to the April terra of Court in the sum of $-r(K), in default of which he was com mitted to jail. The friends of Mr. Colliss regret that he should be subject to such a charge, and trust it will prove unfounded. Messrs. Camp and Randall, of War ren, propose, if sufficient encouragement be given the enterprise by our farmers, to establish a flax mill in Chardon, the com ing spring. They offer to furnish ineils for sowing, the same amount to be return ed when the crop is raised; and it is esti mated that from 1.500 to 2,0(K) tons of flax raised would warrant the building of I he mill. The flax will be made into tow t the mill Imre, and sent by the P. & Y. K. R. to Warren, for spinning, &c, at the mill there. From the Geneva Times.

On Saturday last, in the forenoon, Silas Kellogg, of North Madison, went to the Talcott sawmill in Madison to get some sawdust. It appears he was at work near the pitman, when, it is supposed, he fell against it, as he was subject to vertigo. He was struck above and back of the temple, the key entering the brain. He was found in an uncon scious state, in which he remained for thirty hours and died. The Board of Education have just pur chased and put into the school a complete set of instruments for the illustration of the Metric System of Weights and Meas ures. There have been a good many pigeons in this vicinity for some time; a few shot and a few netted. They have roosted in vast quanties in tfloomheld, but were so an noyed by pot hunters, who went into the roost and shot them at night, that they were driven out. Some took to the hem locks in Morgan and Trumbull. Here again, men in violation of the law, fired on them while roosting. We understand that the names of some have been ob tained, and they will probably be prosecu ted, as they ought to be. A few moruings since, when it was foggy, the pigeons left the roost, in Bloomfield, and becoming be wildered, flew into Colebrook, and then settled down covering the fields, houses and trees, in countless thousands. It should be understood by all that the law prohib its any one from shooting or killing pigeons in their nesting places or roosts.
