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.

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
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
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
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. The advices
so far indicate the defeat of the
call for a Constitutional Convention,
by a large majority."
Mr. G. II. Baskette, late of the
Murfrecsboro News, has taken
editorial charge of the Nashville
American. He is an able journal
ist. Another Sunday, or a new day for
observing the Sabbath, has been in
augurated by some colored people

A colored man, named Horace
Shields was sentenced by the Chat

twelve months' in the penitentiary,
for stealing an umbrella. He bor
rowed one from a friend and failed
to return it.
The Americus (Ga.) Recorder is
printed on paper 50 per cent, of
which is pine wood. The paper is
soft, smooth and clear, and takes
the impression remarkably free.
What is the cost per pound, and
where manufactured ? The Trades
man. 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. Phila
President Arthur has vetoed the
River and Harbor Bill. The
Michigan forest fires have been
nearly extinguished by rains.
The election of Governor St. John,

3,500 in Chicago, has been arrested
in Scotland. The Mining Expo
sition opened at Denver on Tuesday.

meeting at Leesburg, Ohio, closed
on Sunday, with an attendance of
G,000 people. The Rev. Barnes,
a rather sensational preacher, is

Since the the death of the late
secretary of the Cincinnati Southern
Railway, Mr. Doughty, it has
been discovered that that gentleman
fraudulently issued 4,045 shares of
the C.N.O. &T.P.R stock. The
estate of Mr. Doughty will be
sufficient to holders of stock against
loss. At the Lancaster camp-
meeting, Sunday, over 1 1 ,000 people
attended. The Spreme Lodge of
Knights of Pythias meets in Detroit,
Aug. 21st to 24th. A larger
number of deaths occurred in New
York City the week ending Saturday
last than has been the case for ten
years. One third of the 1217 deaths
were infants who succumbed to
cholera infantum, arising from the
great heat. 15,000,000 gallons
of whiskey are now in bond in the
Lexington, Ky., district. The
shipment of wheat from Lexington
Ky., is larger than was ever pre
viously known. The railways can
not supply the demand for cars.

The Sultan refuses to declare
Arabi Pasha a rebel until Turkish
troops have been landed in Egypt.
Turkish troops are preparing to
leave. The total naval force con
sists of fifteen vessels. It is expected
the British will shortly occupy Suez.
The London Daily Neivs considers
England must, in common prudence,
prevent Turkish troops landing in
Egypt. It is supposed there is com
plicity between the Porte and Arabi
Pasha. The Khedive has authorized
the English to occupy as much of

Egypt. Looting continues at Rain-
eh. The Aboukir forts have not yet

Arabs are working hard at the fortli-
cations at Rosetta and Damietta.
The feeling among the French is
very much against De Lesseps.
Arabi Pasha is still parleying with
the Khedive who insists upon uncon
ditional surrender. De Lesseps has
told Arabi Pasha that if ho leaves
the Suez Canal alone neither France
nor Italy will touch him. Seven
hundred and fifty of the Scotts
Guards have left London for Egypt,
amidst the greatest excitement. The
House of Commons, by 140 to 23
