These books,though properly called almanacs, never become worthless or go out of date as almanacs generally do as they treat upon nearly every leading scientific subject in natural law, together with introductions of new discoveries, and setting f irth a new sys tem of science, wherein all seekers and lovers of scientific research, both young and old, wishing to exist iu keeping with the times, must find in them elements to their advantage. Tiiey are permuueot works of reference and illustrated with charts, showing the positions of the plan ets and giviug data of the past, and coo tain much reading matter on many and various scientific subjects, leading to what must soon become the new line or system of science built upon the ruins of the old modes or theories. Theatrical. The Bteveus' Dramatic compauy open a week's engagement at Harper's theatre tonight. The Freeport Bulletin Bays of the company: The crowd at Germania hall last eve n ing was much larger than has attended any doings there for a long lime. Every feat was occupied and standing room was at a premium both up and down stairs. On account of the great crowd many people went borne because the; could not get into the building with any comfort. The attraction was the "Perils of New York," presented by Stevens' Original dramatic company, which was received with much favor by the audience. The music by Prof. J. Swan's orchestra which accompanies the troupe, was espe cially good. Tonight the company will present "The Danites," using its own special scenery to illustrate the more at tractive features, which are 80 plentiful in this thrilling drama.

Mr. Short succeeded in making several conversions, and the converts were baptized u the river. In order that the public shall have the correct idea of the creed he preaches. Mr. Short has sent the following communication to the Ahovs: -' Mim.f.ksi'rg, III., November 24 The work under consideration is a di vine reality, and contains an inspired his tory of the original nations of fair Columbia. It narrates that a Shemitic colony came here, by providential direc tion, from the towor of Babel, about for ty centuries ago, in fulfillment of Genesis II. Their propitious voyage across the blue Pacific; their landing, and occupying some where near the tropic of Cancer; their growth; and development; their agrarian wealth, and architectural skill: their laws, manners, habits, customs, re ligion, contentions, dissensions, wars, downfall and overthrow are vbranicled. This first munition was succeeded and supplanted by a Hebrew immigration six hundred years before the advent of Christ. Their flocks and herds were roaming at large; their orchards and fields were sadly neglected: their once beautiful and populous cities were ten- antless. for lo' infidelity, and atheism. genncrea corruption, contusion, interne cine, wars, famine, pestitlence snd irre parable df,,lati.m. in Jeremm 49:30, ol. is a condensed account of the misfortune of the first settlement, no nl tue goon fortune ol their rival succes sors.

I ne wouia ne wise ol tue uge have exhausted the treasures of earthly love to hud the origiu of these once mighty people, but have not been at all rewarded lor their long and painful re searches. If the Smithsonian Institute. or -onie historical society couid have made i tie mute lips of stone statuaries, or the beiroglyphic walls of crumbling tein pies tell the simple story of birth and origin, the world would have been thrown into a frenzy over the achicvem' ts of science. It remained for the God "that revealeth secrets" to bring this understanding f .rih through 'he "young man" of Z nana! or "him that i- not learned." rite lni:e tclis us that some of the house of Joseph wi-rc to become "a multitude in themidM of the earth," or their domain was to be "the uttermost bounds of the everlasting hills. " And of Joseph he said, 'blessed of the Lord be his land, for the precious things of heaven." etc. As represented through his son Ephraim he was to "be come a multitude of nations," tor "they are the ten thousands of Ephraim." In order to possess the "utmost bounds." "they wandered through the wilderness, the branches are stretched out, thev are gone over the sea." "Utmost" is farther most, or on the opposite side of the globe from where the prophet was while fore telling, and "the sea" prominently and emphatically the Pacific sea. Ezekiel in forms us, as touching Hie smitten hosts of Israel, "my flock was scattered upon nil the face of the earth and none did search or seek after them. For ttiu- saith the Lord God. behold 1, even I. will both search my sheep and seek them out " Christ joins with the prophets as fol iows: "Ana other sheet) 1 have, whicti are not of this fold, them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shep herd." James addressed those both far and near, but more especially "to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad." It was foretold ot the elect nation, "And she sLall be brought down and shall speak nut of tne ground, and her speech shall ue low out of the dust, and ber voice shall be as of one tnal hath a familiar spirit out of the ground, and her speech shall whisper out of the dust " There is no thought or device in the grave where inanimate clay is placed, hence this "speech," "whisper' or "voice" must he from their written record, but the bible has never been submitted to such an unique test. Tne psalmist tells us that "truth shall spring out of the uarth,.and righteous ness shall look down from heaven " "Thy cumniaudmeuts are truth, thy word is truth, thy law is truth," saith inspiration, therefore we may know without equivo cation or doubt what crae from this strange yet true covert of the Almighty God. The ork under consideration purports lo contain the commandments, word und luw of the Lord Jehovah. It ib replete wuu prophecy, doctrine and history, and as such is of inestimable value. Through all the volume the rich stream of gospel purity is evident to the candid iuvesligalor It is the true wea pon lo put down the gross and abominable heresy of polygamy and kindred evils. It invariably enjoins virtue for all the walks of life, and monogamy in the mar ital relation. It stands upon its own merit, and came forth in fulfillment of biblical prophecies loo numerous and va rious to mention, or elucidate through the secular press. The book and Rev.

Howe sold his press out lo the Hon. L. L. Rice in 18;9, and with it went the manuscript which was obtained recently by Pres. Jas. Fairchild of Oberlin college, Ohio. September 22, 1827, Mr. Joseph Smith, of Palmyra, New York, was directed by a guardiun angel to the spot where the sacred treasure had lain for full fourteen hundred years. The whole narration was pi iced in a water tight stoue chest or box, and hidden away and sealed up with the prayer of faith, and the accompany ing promise that it should come forth in the Lord's time. He was placed in cus-. tody of the melahc plates, and was au thorized, empowered and commanded to translate the characters contained there on. He copied and translated a portion and sent the same by a gentleman named Martin Harris, to New York city, to be examined by the erudite Prof. Anthon and the Hon. Dr. Mitchell.

The Haveup irt Vw.vm of yesterday morning has the following to Say ol the recent run on the German S ivings bank across the river, ami the alleged origin thereof: Tue old adui tniltou "behold how gteat a matter a little tire kindielh," uttered eighteen hundred years ago. never had a belter ntenipiincation lhau that in this city dnricn the past few days in the run on the German Savings bank. The origiu of the flurry has beeu tr iced lo a meeting of a beneficiary society in Bock Island two weeks ago. The sia iely had Siime funds to lake care of, an. I the ques tion arose as to I lie custody ot the mon y. There are n o savings bmks in Rock Isiand city, and inembeis of the society who deposited earnings in savings banks in Davenpoit advocated the placing of the money w here it could draw interest. Discussion ensued as lo the safe ty of banks. anyway; and the meeting, instead of taking action, ad journed, leaving the fund in the posses sion of the treasurer, holdini; him re--ponsible. Tlie members of the society went about luukiug inquiry us lo the con dition of the savings banks in Davenpoi t The inquiries were transformed inlo le poris and a.- earl; as Monday last, un expected calis foi deposits were made at one of the savings banks in this city. And the depositors who came to secure their money called upop friends in Daven poit and reiafcd their tears. The res iit as the run on the German Savings bank which commenced on Wod nesday last, although another bank ex perienced the first effects of the rumor. Much wh: tlie origin of the flurry at the German Saving- bank, which set in. really, on We.lnes.Uv lasl. and terminat ed yesterday. The excitement ended as suddenly as il begun. On Friday the amount taken out by depositors was about $40,000. On Saturday it was $15. - 000. and the amount of the day's de posits exceeded the sum of withdrawals. At 5 o'clock last evening the writer passed the bank Three women were on the sidewalk looking iu and three men were inside at the cashier's desk, and the men were depositing ihctr usual Satur day evening amounts. Tne returner watched the proceedings. The three men came out, and walked nntiv uilb the three wom-n. their wives. From that time for two hours, workiagmen entered the bank, and did business with the cash ier: Only four asked to have their books balanced and received Iheir m-mey. The other.- made deposits, had the amount credited on their books and came out for home. The Der Deui'ikitit, of Davenport, in its yesterday morning's issue, makes the following manly retraction relative to the reflections cast upon th-i banks of Rock Island: At first it was supposed that the ru mors had originated in Rock Island and that persons connected with Kock Island banks were to blame for it, but we are glad to say, that this proves lo ba untrue. It seems lo have been caused by remarks made inadvertent!; during a discussion relative to the securing investment of funds of a charitable association, remark? which probably were misunderstood and gave rise to undue apprehensions as to the security of the bank. m m Obituary.

Anyone who has ever dealt in lauds, knows that no investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefull; made. To the absolute safet; of a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which can be obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and the great tide of immi gration into these states has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, free as it is from the long rigoorous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far mer the; hold out special inducements. j Cheap land, easy term of purchase, good marke's and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay Tent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money be has invested in it.
