Tne Library building, on Central Avenue, is rapidly approaching completion, and will shortly be ready tor opening. Evidently no long tune can elapse before the benefit to ltugby of this generous tribute of the American literary world to Thomas Hughes begins to be telt. lint in the mean time the maintenance of 'lie institution is a serious tax upon the limited means of the present population of the town. Mr. Abner L. Ross has kindly consented to receive subscriptions from visitors to the Tabard Hotel. Payments can also be made to the Hughes' Public Library at the Lafayette Bank of Cincinnati, and to Mr. N. II. lucker, at the Kugby Commissary. There is an impression with some of our readers that The Ruobeian is in future to be issued fortnightly, instead of weekly. That is not so, and if ever such a sickness threatens the paper, rather than leave it to a lingering death, it will be smothered at once. The Ruqbe'ian is now paying its way, and Will be issued every Satur day, as it has been, but with one exception, since the present pro prietor has had charge of the journal, we want, however and never more than at the present moment, while the colony is not out of its crucial condition the helping right hand of every colonist and well wisher in this country and the old. Rugby has yet a hard and long struggle to maintain ; she is no trimmed garden where one may walk, and, " at his own sweet will," cultivate the beautiful alone. No ! the surroundings are rough and primeval forests, needing the axe and the determination of the pioneer, and the plow, and the seed, and the patience of the tiller of the soil. The pen has been said to be mightier than the sword, but we question if it be more powerful than the plowshare ; however, the press is an immense impetus to civilization, and Cincinnatus, "in the brave days of old," would have been none the less civilized, or useful as a member of society, had he, in his bucolic or dictatorial days, a weekly newspaper to peruse. We would again solicit for The Rugbeian the support of all those who have the interests of Rugby at heart. Nobody will now believe, no matter who certifies to the contrary, that Rugby is anything but a disastrous failure; whereas Rugby has been passing through the diseases of childhood, and is on the way to be come a well-established, pleasant and profitable colony. It is evident that if a gang of " Will Wimbles " enter the wilderness as pioneers, their work as pioneers will fail. But that does not imply that the place is a failure ; only that the " Will Wimbles " were unfit for the work, and that the locality was not all its founders hoped and believed. After the debris of bottles the " Will Wimbles " had heaped up has been cleared away by successors better qualified for the task, the colony begins to assume shape ; gradually to strengthen and harden into form and consistency. But it will be long before the success is recognized, whereas the news of failure spreads like wildfire. As a rule a new setlement has to go through a probation of abuse : and nearly always begins its career as "a disastrous failure." This was conspicuously the case with the most successful settlement of modern days, the Canterbury Colony of New Zealand : and although Rugby may not attain to large proportions, it is likely to form a good average sue cess, porhaps more, to make up in a measure by agreeable society, a pleasant climate and picturesque scenery, for any short comings in soil, and .wealth of produce. Anglo American Tims. THE COUNTY ELECTIONS. We had hoped to receive in time for publication this week, the elce tion returns for Morgan and Fen tress . Counties, but up to going to press . they had not come in. It is generally believed, however, that but few changes have taken place The Nashville corespondent of the Cincinnati Commercial telegraphs to that journal : "Meager returns have been received from county elections throughout the State.

It is gratifying to learn from latest reports that the Rugby colony is flourishing and hopeful. The man that undertook to plant that colony did a far better bit of old fashioned English work than that which Gladstone is trying to do in Egypt, and Mr. Hughes and his followers deserve success.
