We have depended upon memory m
giving this outline of the library meeting
and may have omitted something that
ought to have been mentioned. It was
certainly a very sociable gtthering, and
we hope that the meeting to-night will
prove a grund success. We hope that
all who were present Saturduy night
will remember the fine of 25 cents that
each one will have to pay if not present
by eight o clock.

Many things have coma before the puit
llc as curative agents, but no one of them
has stood (lie test that electricity has. It
has grown in favor every year, and tho'
by no means considered a "cure-all," V
relieves or cures a wide margin of dis
eases. Many men have.buill up a lucra
tive business in manufacturing electrical
batteries for the profession, and some of
their machines are marvels of mechanic
al ingenuity. Many professional men
have made a scientific study of electtici
ty, and the befit means of applying it to
the human Eastern for the cure of dis
ease, and among them mny be mentioned
Dr. J. D. S. Smith, of Bridgeport.whose
reputation as a successful medical elec
trician has spread all over our State, an
well as portions of New York and other
states, from which he has many patients.
The busy life of the general practitioner
precludes the use of electricity generally
among bis patients, even where he hat a
knowledge of its etfleaoy, and under
stands its adminisiralian ; the specialist
ia therefore sought, ns one having the fa
cilities and the time to apply itaa-il
should be applied, and in this way Dr
Smith has recu'ved many patients, ami
his good works among the sick have won
for him the respect and confidence of

Dear SiK: It was my good fortune
to be present last Tuesday Eve., at one
of the "NeiL'hborhood Sociables." of
Mile Hill. This, the second one of the
season, was held at the residence of Zul
mon Peck, Esq., the assembled gvuaii
comprising some ten families, who bave
agreed to meet together fur mutual ira:
provement, and each hostess of the eve
ning is permitted to Invite ;just four and
no more ' outsider?. This sociable was
very entertaining as well as instvuettve.
The reading of one of Bayard Taylor's
poems, by Mrs. E. L. Johnson, was lis
tened to with much pleasure. Also an
extract from "They All D It,',' by Misi
M. F. Peck, together with games, cha
rades, and a Presbyterian dance, the eve
ning passed quite merrily. Out of the
twenty-five who were present I think I
can safely say that all both old mi.)
young will look forward with pleasure
to No. 3, at tbe house of 1. Lake, Esq.
Out of regard for tbe host I have omit
ted stating the number of accident!, Ow

George Brown was arrested In New
ark, and brought to . Danbury for trial,
as one of the parties who broke into the
Union Hat Factory, and atole halt. He
wat bound over to the sujierior court un
der $300 bonds. His brother remarked
' all the time that it waa too bad to put him
in jail for so small a sum, and said that
ha would have put the amount In his
pocket,' if he had only known that il
would btve been necrieu. As ho one
was ready with the bonds be was kepi
under custody, over night, at the Turner
House, bit brother returning toNorwalk
for money to give bail for his appearance
at court.
In the morning he was put in jail, and
in the course of the day, Friday, his bro
ther returned' with the money, to give
bull for him, which was refused by Mr.
Sherwood, ihe keeper of the jail. Brown's
brother then went to the offcer that had
him in charge, who went with him to the
jail, and released Brown. His brother
slipped some money in hit' hand., and
said "go 1' which was all that was re
quired, and off he went, so the officers
of Dajibury have got to look-) once more
for their prisonor. We- hope" they will
catch him, and profit by this lesson, and
keep him. " ' ,
Th weather for the p-tst week or tea
dya has beo A combination of all sea
sons. ' First we had an opera f Winter
winds, then a blanket of snow, and soon
after the Ibetmometer and our ears poin-
tllo some inches below zero. Runners
and wheels entered in'o a contest for the
championship of the road, ; and for a
time there was not much ' advantage on
ei her side. The hell did not (tare Ihe
Jolly ring that denote good sMghing,
and the wheels were without much ani
mation In their movements. Juck Frotl
made soma very fine etchings on the
panes of our chamber window, but the
pictures lacked warmth of cxpreision,au
index of his nur character, which he
had brought out in tbe tranquil quiet oi

appealed directly to our feelings. A
change was toon apparent Wednesday
appeared to bare been transferred from
May to January, and for Ihe remainder
of the wtek tha latter was as leader
hearted and weeping as . April. In'tead
of the artistic touches of Jack Frost
there were tear-drops on the ' window.
Pickerel fishing is now the. prevailing.
