The Third Grand Excursion from Ash tabula, under the direction of the Congre gational Church, will lie given Thursday, August 5th. Tile steamer Pearl has been chartered for this occasion, and will leave Ashtabula Harbor for Cleveland at 9 a. in. At least three hours will be given to the excursionists in (lie city. Refreshments will be served upon the steamer. It is asserted on medical authority that one or two cases of stomach disease in the village took on much of the char acter of cholera.

The Wilcox pateut rubber spring for horse shoes, which has been noticed In these columns, Is a most valuable contriv ance for relieving tender-footed horses. They are only used upon the fore feet. They afford immediate and perfect relief, aud while they relieve suffering, they re store life and spirit to the animal. Let any one with a tenderfooted horse make the trial and test the truth of our asser tions. In the lower part of the county they ore used very generally with satisfac tion. Mr. Bloat, of Rock Creek makes and sets the shoes, and a postal to cither he or A. C, Wilcox of the same place will meet with ready response. A most gratifying pleasure excursion will that be, gotten up by the ladies of the Congregational church noticed elsewhere- The refreshments will be served on the boat, and the uniform success of those la dles in reaching the satisfaction of man, woman, or child, by way of their palates is admitted. The boat is commodious and safe. The arrangement of the time of starting p a, m. that spent in Cleveland 8 hours hnd the delightful time of the day for the homeward sail, and the timely hour for reaching home, have each been fixed with thoughtful care, and everything is calculated, with good weather, to make the excursion one of the most pleasant, Our friend of the Sentinel is something of a traveler, an ornithologist and evident ly something of a sailor. But his instruc tions for passing Hell Gate, do not tally with the careful practice in days of yore. ' Slowing up," was then deemed fatal to safety. To get into an eddy, without full headway, was almost sure to shoot upon the rocks. Sail vessels had, therefore, to wait for wind before encountering the dangers of a passage. Steamers under full headway, were then known sometimes to stop and it became a struggle with a pret ty even thing of it, whether the power of the machinery Or the power of the current should carry the day. "Slowing up." therefore, would not be safe business. The announcement of Mr, E. H. Pifer, of Rock Creek, as a candidate for the of fice of County Recorder, may be found in this paper. Our acquaintance with Pifer hss been of many years standing, and we are fully persuaded that his popular bear ing, his intelligence, fitness and corupeten- cy, are beyond question. If nominated and elected, he will, we hare no doubt, fill the duties of the office honorably aud ac ceptably. The announcement of Mr. H. H. Grorer, of Harlagrove, will be found in the proper place in this paper. Mr. G. is well and favorably known through the county. He is a fine penman, a man of general business experience and attainments and, we think, possesses the right qualities to fit him for the place to which he has an honorable as piration and we commend him to the sup port of the voters of the county. Mr. E. F. Mason, present Recorder, is named by bis numerous friends as a can didate for re-election, and as his past acts bear ample testimony of his complete fit ness fur the duties of the office, nothing need be added to commend him to the vol ere of tbn county.

In not a few cases this has been deferred too long, and those interested should be prompt in meeting a reasonable require 111 cut. Commissioner Abeel has taken hold of the matter of the repairing of Main street, evidently determined to make thorough Work of It. Those knobs which have so long decorated cuch fide of that thorough fare, have been plowed up and the abrupt shoulders on eii her side, lYoui which the currents of water from the center received cutting power, have been removed, and an easier grade secured, and much of tlie wash prevented. Then, the mud, or the material for forming it, upon the bed of the road has been scraped oil' down to hard bottom. Theso would seem to lie well conceived steps, and well calculated to give a hard and smooth bottom, pro vided the pick and shovel arc used suffi ciently to level the surface, leaving only rotundity enough lor the water to find the gutters with a gentle current. This plan, it' followed out with thoroughness and fi delity, will, we are inclined to think, give us u good roud bed. At uuy rule it is time thut something should be done, aud this mode of repair commends itself to common sense, we, therefore, bid Commis sioner Abccl a hearty god sliced. Tkaciieu's Ixdtitl'TK.

Tho writer left Aslilabnla on Hie I:.'I2; r. M, train, Saturday, July lOlh for N'eW York, ami various points in New York, for '.he purpose of purchasing uniform for Proteci ion fire couimny figuring for a hose carriage or jumper, nnd tovxauiiue into the working of depart merits of which , Y. stale is justly eeleliraled. A stop of two hours was made at Erie, and the department at that cily hurriedly examin ed. It was f'luud in excellent condition and conducted about on the plan of our own duiarlmeni. Richusler, N. Y. was reach ed early Sunday morning, anil mi Monday visits were made lo the various branches of its lire department. Rochcaler has the reputation, and boasts of one of the best regulated, most Wfeclive and gentlemanly fire departments in the land. The depart ment is excellently distributed about the ity where it will be most effective in case of lira. Every apparatus was found in perfect order, and tiie men at their posts. Rochester has two independant hose com panies the Alerts and Actives and the Protective' a supply company in wli ch she lakes special priJe. These companies were all vi,iicd in the writer's ramblings, through the kindness of an old school mule Mr. Will S. Woodruff, first assist ant of the Alert hose company the writer was enabled to glean much valuable infor mation The Alerts were organized in 1WI2, and are one of the oldest and most efficient fire companies in the state. They occupy an elegant three story brick house uo Filzhugh street, furnished in the most complete manner throughout. Attach ments are connected with the fire alarm telegraph in such a manner, that when a fire occurs doors are thrown open, gas turned on. men alarmed and in eight to ten seconds the machine, after the first stroke of the gong, is on its way to the fire. The uniforms worn by this company look the prize at the Fireman's convention held at Canan.laigua, N. Y., lost fall out of the large number of crack companies present. The new uniforms for Protection company, will be precisely like them ex cept in color. Mr. Frank P. Ranney the popular gents furnisher of Rochester, was awarded the contract formakingthe shirts, blue shirts being adopted in place of rod, with a while regulation fire hat with blue front piece in place of black worn by the Alert Company. The Actiye hose com pany are pleasantly located on North St. Paul street in a neat brick house. The apparatuses run by both these celebrat ed companies are I rum the shops of Sam ual M. Stewart, of H.Hjhester, and are ele gant pieces of workmanship. They carry nothing but extra hose. The Proticlives occupy temporary quarters on Mill street, having sold their old brick headquarters for a more convenient location upon which they will build immediately. The duties of this old reliable, favorite company at fires,is the saving and protection of pro. perty. They are provided with buckets, cavass, ropes, axes, fire extiuguishers, etc. Their record is a matter of pride to the city us well as the company. The wheeled fire extinguisher hook and ladder carria ges, steam engines and other apparatuses drawn by horse power are all provided with the most improved attachments for the speedy hitching of teams, so that no time may be lost in reaching the scene of a fire. Chief Gibson is untiring in his efforts to keep the department in perfect condition. From Rochester the writer yisied the city of New York where some twenty different fire companies and branches of its mammoth department were visited and inspected. New York is the stalwart headquarters for firemen in the United Slates. It is simply perfect, and anything like a description would fall far short of the mark. While il is equalled by departments in oilier cities in some special point, it is excelled by none. Its steam propelling and horse power steamers, hose carts, hook and lad der and all its apparatus, firemen are ever prompt to save. The hats for Protection company were purchased in New York-und will be made by Messrs. J. Carina & Bros., whose reputation is far famed for this class of work. Syracuse was next visited and two or three hours pleasantly whiled away inspecting her department. Seneca Falls was next in order. This is one of the most delightful towns in all New York, grandly situated on the Anburn branch o' the N. York Cetitral road, Here is locat ed the works of the famous Silsby Manu facturing Company makers' of the cele brated Silsby Steam Are engines and other apparatus. The writer was cordially wel comed by one of the junior members of the firm and shown through the very extensive works of the concern. We believe this is the only house in the U. States that man ufacture everything used in the construct ion of tins class of goods. About 150 men are employed in the various shops. These men are all skilled, intelligent thinking workmen. Everything about the building was in the most perfect order and each branch of the business is sepurate and dis tinct. The demand for these superior machines is constantly increasing and are fast taking the place of Clapp & Jones engines in the East. The best two wheel ed jumpers seen any where were found here, and the best four wheled cairiage (nothing like the bulky, heavy carriage, now used by Protection .&.,) at the works of S. M. Stewert in Rochester. The Silsby Folks manufacture a patent heater for steam firo engines. No steamer should be without one, especially in Ashtabula and other towns where no teams are kept in waiting to draw the engines to fires, and where it takes so long to get up Steam with a cold boiler. Every where East, fire men stand high in the estimation of the peoplo and everything to advance their cause and make their dangerous work as safe and easy as possible is done. The life of the fireman is a hazardous and class of men W. B. M.

We are pleased to learn that landlord St. John of the Rock Creek House, is im proving iu health slowly to be sure, but C 'nullify. The Impression popularly entertained about tins place, is that the suit about to lie begun against the will of Mrs. Flora Randal has a fair show for a favorable re sult. The dwelling of O. H.

The Greenback element about town seems lo lie in something of the situation of a basket of eels with embers thrown over them. WINDSOR. Kd. Tel. The golden grain that so heavily liurdened the eartb has been most ly secured, and haying is also nearly over. The north winds and cooler temperature are very grateful. The storm that paused over this section on Friday night last, left its mark upon the burn of Mr. Ueathman, south-west of Windsor. It lore outa post, and seriously mutilated the building, but fire did not ful. low. Three men were in the barn, who suffered severe shocks, but soon rallied again. By another storm that passed over dur ing the week, a young man who was at work for Mr. Hall, who works the farm of Kdmond Clapp, in Huntsburg, started for the cows. Finding no other shelter from the fury of the storm, be crawled into a large hollow log, in the open pasture. As he did not return that night, there was a rally in the morning. Over one hundred men engaged in the search, through most of Saturday. The discovery was made by a dog of the party. The man who was in feeble health was helped from bis hid ing place and taken home. He had been in the log some 'M hours. Business is booming in Stuart's quarry, and Robert shows himself a man ol busi ness. He has rented the well known quar ry of Jerome Alderman, at Windsor Mills, and taken a job to put in the heavy stone work for a new bridge, west of the Mills. The lease extends five years. All kinds of stone can now be readily furnished. Thompson Higlcy, Jr., harvested 45 acres of wheat, from which he expects to thrash 1,000 bushels ol grain. He contin ues to sell the Champion grain drill, and keeps phosphate to work with it. It seems rather lonely not to hear from our old friend and TxtEuaAPH correspon dent, R. D. Norris, of Hartsgrove. We may, however, well excuse him in view of his ill health and bodily affliction. He has been a man of active business habits; he has seen sorrow aud affliction, but he has stood at his post und never faltered. He has been a man of principle, and made his mark in the world. His honor and gener osity none will question. He ia sustained by a strong faith in the Redeemer, and, when the call comes, he will no doubt be HIG. KINGSVILLE. The past week has, in Kingsville, been free from events of a startling nature. The only thing to relieve the monotony being the arrival, on Friday afternoon, of a band of Gypsies.' Various conjectures were formed by people In town, as to their nationality. Their complexion bordered on the Italian, but they seemed to speak English fluently. Their first move after entering town, was for a pair of scales, where, while being weighed, they indulg ed iu such remarks as these: "I've gained twenty pounds," "That's nothing I've gained forty." While this was being en acted, Esq. Wright thought he recognized one of them as his long lost son. This led to other recognitions, and they proved to be the party who left here two weeks ago for a camp on the Lake shore. They think Lake Erie a splendid pond. Long may it wave. The Misses Haltie Kingsbury, Mary Kiunear, Lelia Barrett, and Hattie Abbot are packing their trunks for Chautau qua. This Is the season of the year when pic nics are riiie, and the average "small boy" is on his good behavior. Mrs. Ransom and Miss Helen Richmond, of the Presby terian S. 8., took their classes out for an airing on the Lake, on Thursday. The day was lovely, the cake first rate, the bathing nice, the boat ride fine, and all arc of the opinion that their teachers are ''just splendid" A Star. Mr. C. W.

A fearful thunder storm passed over this place on Sunday evening. During the storm it was an almost constant rum ble and crash of lightening.

ANOTHER STEAMBOAT DISASTER. This is a year of steamboat disasters. The latest, and one of the most frightful, occurred about ten o'clock last week Thurs day evening, on the Detroit river, nine miles below the city, caused by a large ex cursion steamer, the Garland, running down a small steam yacht, the Mamie, on which were twenty-four persons, sixteen of whom were lost in the disaster. The As sociated press reports say that the excur sion steamer Garland, with 1200 persons on board, under the auspices of the Detroit Moulder's Union, collided with the yacht, cutting her in two, so that she ssuk in about ten minutes. The twenty-four per sons on board consisted mainly of Trinity Roman Catholic church f Detroit, and a number of acolytes or alter boys of the church. The party had been on an excur sion and were returning home. The night was bright and moonlight, and the acci dent was caused by unpardonable negligence. The Egyptian Obelisk has arrived in New York and lies at Twenty-third street, in the North River, awaiting a place npon which to stand it. The story of the obelisk is that it was erected by Thotraes Third, some 1,500 years B. C, and counts three and a half centuries age. Its position upon Ameri can soil, considering the task of taking It down, loading upon a vessel prepared for its transportation and its successful voyage across the Atlantic, will make it an object of intense and wonderful inter est.

Six months ago I saw a U. S. flag with hop bitters on it, and I thought 1 would be a fool once more. I tried it, but my folly E roved to be wisdom.
