Mr. Jones was a rostdent of tho thriv ing village ol Joncsvillo, Its merch ants and mechanics wore making a con foitublo living out ol their biislticss,ntul everybody lu and around the village, wore prospering and consofpiontly con tented and happy. The most of them owned their homes, which they had built up and pai l for fiom the piofiU ot the business lu which they wore en gaged. The thrifty and attractive appear anco of Joncsvillc, Induced many per sons to settle there and its permanency seemed nssmed. Hut Mr. Jones unfor tunateiy became imbuHl with the de lusive doctriuos of Fron Tinde. Ho be gati to complain to the Joncsvillc mer chants that thoy were charging him too mm Ii for the goods t lu-y sold him. Ho hinted to the tinner that ho could buy tin cups a cent cheaper in St. Joseph, and he guessed he would go thcro lor hi tlnwaro. 11b said about tho Hime thinjj to the shoemaker, the saddlcr"thn butcher, the baker, tho candle-stick milker," and so off lie goes to St, Jos. epli and buys his good i where ho can get llicni the cheapest, and returns home, congratttlatitii! hlnifeU that he hid saved forty-live cents on Ids pur chases. II". Is po elated with hii new found theory, that ho talks it up among his neighliors asd miicccCiIs in Inducing many of tliein to adopt his vicwr , they all go to St. Joseph and buy their goods where they can get the cheapot. 'J hoy all come home preaching the goipol of Free Trade. A few months pas.i by and the former prosperous town of Jone-villo Hoems to ho getting unne coiini ably dull. A period rlngnation and bl'ght seems to have oomo over tho business ot tlio place. One merchant after another closes up his business, boxes up his goods, sells Ins property nt a great sacrifice and leaves Juuesvllle. The tinner, the shoemaker, the saddler and all the other mechanics tindiug no sale lor tledr manufaotures, emigrate or turn to farming to make a living. Uuc of thefo Tree Trade- converts was Kftitncr lSrown. Ho came to Jones vile one morning with a basket of eggs nnd butter, some potatoes and cheese to trade for grocorles and calico. lie had not timo lo go to St. Jo-cph nnd he did not wish to bo Doubled by taking his produce thcro that daj. lie drove up lo the only storo in 'town, whoso propnetor, rfr. White, wns only there t'Ccauso ho was too poor to get awav. Tlio store presented a very fooukcn anil desolate appearance to what it once diil only a few mouths boforo it was fanly bristling with business. Farmer 1$. hollowed lor some one to come and assist In unloading. Not receiving nny answer, ho drove to a hitching post, which he could si-areoly sen for weeds, secured his team and Waited to look up his old tncichani Incnd Mr. Whitu. Ho iouifd him in n lot back of his rHoro honing potatoes. Why don't you mind your business M you US(Mi t0? .,;, j,'lir. myr Ilimvn. Why dui.'t you fatmors jiaivonlzo and thereby foster, cherish anil protect our homo industries? Your Free Trade theory is producing it natural and inevitable results. 1 cun only take of your piodiicu what I can use iu my own family, as your Frco I raiic policy has driven away all nui customer to uhmu wo r.old your pro duce. Kverjbody goes to St. Joscnh lo piirchnso goods, and as wo cannol sell our uoods to tho people hero, wo can not buy what they have to veil. You take your money to St. Jo3oph and spond it with llio merchants of that city, thus building up and enriching that city to tho detriment and ultimate ruin of Jonesvillo You might possibly have bought that hat you wear for lit toon cents less iu St. Joseph, than yon would have paid me for it ; but you wmini navo roceivnl novum! centa per pound nioro for your butter to-dav. if the trade of Jonesvillo had Inen protect- eu as u ongni. in uave neon, anil wo wouiii unyu an nccn moru prosperous nun nappy man we arc now, nut you were not willing to "let well enough atono" anil nave gone attor strange (ioda, led away by tlio irncoun fatuous of Free Trade, and are now reaping the unior iruiis oi your xoiiy. larmoi it. went home in a brown stmlys ills faith In tlio gospel of Free Trade was being rudely hnken. I!ut to return to Mr. Jones. lie saw that r financial blight was coming over Jones vino, l ho village scorned to bo takin" dry-rot. Although Jonesvillo was natur ally a uonutitul town nml a delightful pincc 10 uvo, ne ituaiiy conciiuicd to soil bis haiulsomo property and seek more prosperous locality. It had cost him S3000. From llio fact that so mnny oi me citizens of .innosvillo hail come to tho san e deternilii'ilion, lie found it impossible to realize for Ills property oiiodudf what it has cost him. To add lo his discomfiture and be wilderment, Mr. Dull i nt m whom ho had boon buying good In St. Joseph was charging him nioro and more, for ilm goods he was buying, and on his remonstrating with him tor pulling up the price of his goods, Mr. Dull bland ly roinaiked, that ns tho stores of Jones vdlu hnd been driven out of thv trade, nnd thero nokv being no competition there, lie could safoly advance the prico of his goods Mr Jones camo homo that evening, a saddoi and wiser man. Light was brcakinr into his niiiul. lie felt tliat hi i theory of Five Trado was not nxaetiy what his fanny had painted It. Thai however alluring the theory might lie, its practical results worn anything but saMsfactory. Ho concluded after a night of thoughtful collection that ho had onough of tlio folly ot Frco Trade that henceforth his ouergies would be expended in tlio ad vancement of tlio interests of his own community, his own state and his o wn country.

Misa Ilolmau, Mr. Krauso, and Mr. Langdon, daring the past year have made rapid strides towards per fection in thu Illatoianlo art. Our space this week forbids a lengthy notice of the individual strength ol each member of this most oxcollout company. In our next issue will givo a full account of thsir merits and domonls. Tho music both street and oi chcstral, Is without doubt superior to any that una ovor been In our elty. Wo hope la see them greeted with largo audiences during the remainder of tho woek. It is with no small dogreo of pleasure that wo givo our loaders u brief lite sketch cfthu remarkable young iirtlst, who tor all of this week tins uoen play Ine hoto with tho theatrical trotieo which bears hor ' name. Miss Jennie Holmail Was bum Deceinbor 39th, 1865, at Fern, Lasal'.o county, Illinois. At the tender ago ol four veins hor fathor died, leaving her a fatherless babe do pundont upon the efforts of her mother for support From her first vilt, as a 'hild, to n theatrical performance hIio has evinced a dosiio tor tho stage. At the still tender ago of Uvo or six years slio would return from places of enter tainment and repoat almost worn tor word all thu moro striking and impres sive pnrta of the play, nnd with such Dioies of atmarol as eho could Dink uti around tho douse, would improvko a make-up in mutation of the principal eharaolors of a play with a correctness that might woll have puzzled an ohkr brain, nml not only the make-up but tho attitude, of tho nclnrn. Her lovo of tlm profession was thus oarly develop ed, and from her childhood until to- lav. her whole litu'x munition is nnd has boon to riso to tho top. Hor moth, er, lu order to change tho courso of hor thoughts and desires, in addition to a lihoral education took osoecial pains to givo hor tin extra good musical educa tion, inuiKing turn it sue cottui interest her daughter in music, sha might allow her love for the etago to din out, but not so At fourteen years of ago she was a pianist far above tho average, and had a clan taking music- lessons from hor iinoii that instrument. At about liftcon she wont upon the etago in her chosen profession, aud step by step she lino arisen until her name at tho head of a troupe is 6uQlcient to draw a house. For tbo (list two years of hor istngo ltfo. she had anything but an enjoyable time, llor superiors saw in nor tne star that was soon to eclipse them in magni tude, brilliancy and beauty and ndvor let an oiottunitv oass to aiscource tier nnd keep hor iu tho back ground. Tho natural Joaloiuv of tho stage worn hers to suffer and at.timos she nlmost huc citmbed to this prcsuro, but being us sured by friends and confident iu her self of ultimate success she kept on nnd is lo ilay without a peer ot nor ngo. Combined with a faultless form nnd fs.ee !s ono of the swcote.it and most Ue:;lblo voices ever heard upon any stage Miss Ho'maii. while devottng a largo portiou of her time to hor profes sion, does not forgot hor christian du ties aud with all tho excitement hid den', to her life finds time every day to read her lllble and offnr her thanks to Doity for thn protection of her lite nnd unsullied reputation, During all of her stago career her mother ncoompanied her, and between them exist a mutual love and confidence that docs not ad mit of a separation for even a week. It does not inquire any Htiet,ch of tho Ira airinatlon to look forward to tho time when the name of Jennie Ilolmnn will be nyiiMiynioiiH with that of the bright est s'ar boforo tho footrights.
