"Papa," said a little urchin to his father the other day, "I saw an editor go down street the other day." "Did you, sonny? How did you know he was an editor?" "Cause I did." "But, my son, he might have been a carpenter, a blacksmith, or a shoemaker." "Oh, no, papa, he was an editor, for he was gnawing a bone, he had no stockings on, the crown was out of his hat, and his coat was torn. I am sure he was an editor."

Worcester, Laible, & Standish, The building is particularly distinguishable for its remarkable whiteness, and has been universally admired. The testimony of two practical painters, employed in painting the building, is that the Detroit white lead is of superior body and better covering qualities to that used on the remainder of the building for the outside coat. This is a worthy testimonial to home manufacture.Advertiser and Tribune. Pure Peninsula Lead is unsurpassed in whiteness, fineness, and durability. It is whiter, more finely ground, and contains greater body and duration than any White Lead in the United States. Sold by Brisbin & Conely, Agents for Detroit White Lead Works. TRUE MERIT NEEDS NO PRAISE. This is the case with the Tremont House, Jackson. The well-known reputation of the hosts of this popular house could not be bettered by anything we might say. Mr. F. L. SMITH, has been connected with hotels for nearly twelve years; and has, during that time, been employed in most of the First Class Houses of the State. L. D. HURD, has long been known as the Landlord of the Tremont. This, we think, is a sufficient guarantee that they know "how to keep a Hotel," and we but reiterate the sentiments of all who may have had the pleasure of stopping with them, when we say: "They are the right men and in the right place." Those who may have business in Jackson cannot find a better House for the same price than the Tremont.

This lake rivals the famous valley of Sinbad the sailor. It is thonght to average 2,000 feet down to tne water all round. The walls are almost perpendicular, running down into the water, and leaving no beach. The depth of the water is unknown, and its surface is smooth and unruffled, and lies so far below the surface of the mountain that the air currents do not affect it. Its length is estimated at twelve miles, and its breadth at ten. No living man ever has, and probably never will be able to reach the water's edge. It lies silent, sBill and mysterious, in the bosom of the "everlasting hills," like a huge well, scooped out by the hands of the giant gem of the mountain, in unknown ages gone by, and around it the primeval forests watch and ward are keeping. The visiting party fired a rifle several times into the water at an angle of forty-five degrees, and were able to note several seconds of time from the report of the gun until the ball struck the water. Such seems incredible but is vouched for by some of our most reliable citizens. The lake is certainly a most remarkable cu riosity. J, L. ImmiITiT. P. NV. CRISSIMA.N.
Page 4 4 LANSING CITY DIRECTORY. UNITED STATES CASUALTY. That system and management render everything possible is proved by the success which has been won by this company, even from misfortune. That all should mutually agree to afford relief and indemnity to any suffering from accidents to which every one is liable, is the principle upon which this association is based, and the skillful adjustment and consumate execution of the plan have made it a blessing to many and a source of profit to those who have embarked in the enterprise. As our only mutual accident company, -as one that has amassed during the short term of its existence a handsome surplus, and which, by the excellence of its organization and remarkable executive ability, has undoubted claims to general favor and confidence, we commend it to the favorable consideration of insurance agents and the insuring public, which should include all who are subject to accidents and have the wisdom to provide against their worst consequences.-N.

In the July number of the MOXITOR we alluded as delicately as possible to a communication from a highly respectable source, charging some of the officers of this company with borrowing $103,000 in U.

How long will the company remain content to lie under this infamous imputation, including perjury and a shameless betrayal of public confidence? We shall be only too happy to open our columns to a refutation of a charge so damaging to its interests and which ought to be no longer suffered to pass unchallenged.-N. Y.

Page 6 I Y _ __ 6 LANSING CITY DIRECTORY. I -- L WORKING MASONS. We fully endorse the views of our cotemporary as expressed in the following article: "Included under the general head of Freemasons, there are several varieties of craftsmen, of which it is well occasionally, to ' take due notice.' It Is not a difficult task on visiting a iodge, and comparing the names of those present with the names on the roll o0 members, to divide the latter at once into two classes-the working Masons, and the idle ones-let us look at them and note their characteristics. The working Mason is one who not only feels a deep interest in the welfare of the lodge and the general prosperity of the Order, but proves by his acts the reality and sincerity of that feeling. He is present at every meeting of his lodge, unless prevented by duties which have a still higher claim on him -his duty to his country, to his family, or his God. We do not mean by working Masons, particularly, one who takes a part in what is technically known as the work of the lodge-that is the rituals, or the conferring of degrees; but one who regularly attends his lodge, and while there discharges any duty that may be assigned to him. If nothing of this kind falls to his lot, he is still attentive to the proceedings, gives his counsel and advice to preserve the harmony and prosperity of the lodge, and is competent to fill any station where he may be required for the time being. This is a working Mason. "Now for the idle: They go to the lodge when summoned, or when there is some great occasion, or when they have to pay dues to avoid being suspended, and scarcely ever at any other time. And even then they feel no interest in the lodge, unless that interest should center upon themselves. They attend so rarely that they are not qualified to do anythin'g when they are present, and as soon as the special object of the visit is accomplished, they ask permission to retire, they wish to go to the theatre, or to a political meeting, or to meet a business friend, etc. These are generally very worthy men, industrious, thriving, honorable, but they are not working Masons. " It would be interesting, and furnish a curious exhibit, to know what portion of the members of lodges are working Masons. Say in a lodge of one hundred members, how many are regular attendants? Are there twentyfive, or one-fourth? We doubt if, in a A. R. THAYER, Successor to Moltmes & Thayer, DEILE IIRUIIS!

I consider the newspapers to be hbe 3o:and agency by which ihe Gospel is preachecd, ignorance casl out, oppressior dethroned, crime ex-;rpated, tie rTo 'd raised, heaven rejoiced and God glorJ'ed.

" "Will you have a daily Sun?" said a news boy to Mrs. Partington. "Will you have a daily son? Why, you little scapegrace! How dare you insinurte against a lone woman! No, indeed-I guess I won't have a daily son. My dear, poor husband used to complain awfully when I presented him with a yearly son, indeed! Begone, you little upstart imp!" And the old lady called for the tarkey-tail fan to keep from swooning. A genius living in California made a nerve and bone all-healing salve, and thought he would expermentalize a little with it. He first cut off his dog's tail and applied some of the salve to the stump. A new ta1; grew out immediately. He then applied some to the peace of to; which be cut off. and a new dog g, ew out. He c.d rot know which dog was which. "How do you and your friends feel now?" said an exultant politician n one of our Western States, to a rather irritable member of the de'eated party. "I suppose" said the latter," "we feel just like Lazarus did when he was licked by dogs." A young lady after reading attentively the title of a novel called the:' Last Man," exclaimed: "Bless me!?f such a thing should happen, what would become oZ the women?" We thirk a more pertinent inquiry is, " what would become of the poor man?" a. -J D W AI.R IR.AW Lr TETE D! I I,,,,

Not having t1me to take it off and get it in position, they backed up the mule and let drive at the Indians. The load was so heavy that: mule and all went tumbling down the hill toward the savages, who, not understanding that kind of warfare, fled like deers. Afterward one of them was captured, and when asked why they run so, replied: "Me big Injun, not afraid of little guns or big guns, but when a white man load up and fire a whole jackass at Injun, me don't know what to do."

E. B. MILLAR, & CO. GERMAN IhIMMGRATION. The increasing immigration from Germany to the United States, says the Philadelphia Press, is accounted for by foreign journalists, as arising from the fear, of the new Band, and more particularly of Prussia, that a vast increase in the army will be requisite to carry out the ambitious projects of Count Bismarck. As it is, every able-bodied man in Prussia must begin life with a certain amount of military service. A pressing conscription would almost ruin the peasantry, as well as the skillled artisans in the cities and tows of Prussia. Hence the strong flow of the tide of immigration to this country. These Germans are industrious, saving, well conducted, and fairly educated. They have a passion for music and a penchant for lager, but generally speaking, exhibit few of the flagrant vices which fill our calendar of crime. If there were any means short of actually prohibiting immigration, it is almost certain that Count Bismarck would put it into operation. As it is, thanks to his ambition, Prussia loses and we gain a large and excellent description of industrious Germans. It is well said that whisky is a nonconductor, because it never' conducted wealth into a man's pocket, happiness to his family, or respectability to his character. In all these things it has proved a non-conductor and therefore it is best to let it alone. HONESTY.-An honest man is able to speak for himself, when a kaave is not. -ShakJspeare. Wooden-ware, ware.

To those in want of Books, Bibles, (Family or Pocket) Prayer Books, Hymn Books, Photograph Albums, Pocket Diaries, Portfolios and Stationery of all kinds, we would suggest a place where great bargains are constantly being given to buyers-Bordwell's Bookstore, 106 Washington Avenue, opposite Capitol. The special attention of Builders, Mechanics and Farmers, as well as all other consumers of Hardware, is called to the stock of goods kept by T. B. Thrift. There is not perhaps, a more carefully selected stock od general Hardware kept in any retail store in the State, than is to be found in this establishment. Mr. Thrift has made the hardware trade a specialty for several years, and feels confident in saying to the consumers of goods in his line, that he can give them better goods at lower prices, than any other establishment in the country. Call and see, at No. 106, Washington Avenue, opposite the Capitol. ENGLISH LAND MONOPOLISTS.-In Ireland a deputation of progressionists have been holding energetic assemblages, and have, through Mr. Ernest Jones, caused a stirring revival of the "land question." Mr. Jones shows, among other interesting facts, that the 71,000,000 acres of land, in the three kingdoms are wholly in the possession of 34,000 owners; and adds some not more important, but rather more suggestive, details, proving the enormous power now wielded by an extremely limited number of property holderssuch as that the Marquis of Breadelbane can any day "ride one hundred miles in a straight line through his property from his own door;" that the Duke of Cleveland may do likewise for a distance of twenty-three miles; that tbe Duke of Richmond holds 3;0 000 acres in the heart of England; and that the Marchioness of Stafford not long ago wielded her power so unwisely as to deprive her tenants of nearly 800,000 acres, for the selfish purpose of turning their farms into deer forests or sheep walks.

A FISHING JArNT.-An English nobleman who had heard glowing accounts of our blue fishing on the south side, became so enamored of it that he determined to visit the country to enjoy it. He crossed the Atlantic in a Cunard steamer, when he reached the dock he hired a hack to take him to the Long Island railroad depot, which was then at the South Ferry. He arrived when a train was about leaving, and stepped on board, went directly to Islip. There he fished for two weeks, having, fortunately, excellent luck. At the end of that time he returned by the early train to New York, took another hack from the depot and caught the same steamer that brought him over, in time to leave by her at 12 o'clock. In bidding America good by, he said that he had had delightful sport, and had enjoyed himself exceedingly, and thought he should come again. All he had seen of our land after a trip of a few thousand miles, was a few dirty streets and a strip of sand beach. He did not even take the trouble to spend a day in New York. All he came for was the fishing, and that was good enough to remunerate him. We should have mentioned that he bought his fishing tackle of A. J. Velie, who always keeps - full assortment. THE AWARDS AT THE PARIS EXPOSITION. According to the previous authentic reports, fully corroborated by a dispatch just received at this office, four gold medals have been awarded to exhibitors of pianos at the Paris exposition. To Messrs. Broadwood, of London, a house nearly one hundred and forty years in existence, closely identified with the rise and progress of pianoforte manufacture, and still the most extensive firm in Europe, having done much for the social welfare of their workmen, a complimentary gold medal. Exhibit grand pianos only, parallel strings. To Messrs. Steinway & Sons, of New York, showing the greatest perfection in all three styles, grand, square and upright, and new and valuable inventions, representing tJe greatest progress in the art of pianoforte manufacture, a gold medal. All overstrung scale. To Messrs. Chickering & Sons, Boston, for great perfection in the old system of constructing grand pianos, with parallel strings, a gold medal. To Streicher, of Vienna, grand piano with overstrung scales, after the Steinway system, fourth gold medaL
Page 12 mm 12 LANSING CITY DIRECTORY. The International Jury consisted of seven gentlemen, the United States not being represented. It is therefore a matter of no little pride to the musical public of America that the first and second gold medals, in order of merit, were awarded to this country. The above is a synopsis of the report of the Jury, which we shall give to our readers as soon as officially published and in our hands. We shall of course confine ourselves strictly to the award and doings of the Jury, decorations and orders being outside and.personal matters, without the slighest connection with the merits of the instruments exhibited. A cable telegram, dated Paris, July 14, informed the Messrs. Steinway & Sons, of this city, that, in addition to the First Gold Medal of Merit awarded to them by the International Jury at the Universal Exposition, the Societr des Beaux Arts, after a careful examination and comparison of all the pianofortes exhibited, awarded to Messrs. Steinway & Sons their Grand Testimonial Medal for greatest perfection and novelty of construction in grand, square, and upright pianos. This voluntary testimonial, from a society of such. high standing, is only second in importance to the verdict of the International Jury.-NY. Review. MUSIC A' T HOME. The last campaign of the pianofortemakers in Paris exhibits many amusing traits. One of the funniest is undoubtedly the statement originating from the fertile brain of the mouthpiece of Messrs. Chickering & Sons, in New York, to the effect that our friend Liszt, according to these disinterested persons, had but two wishes in the world, namely, to see Niagara Falls and to play on a Chickering piano. We can readily understand that Liszt laughed heartily when he heard of this little extravaganza; and we can also understand that the attempt to make his bust the means of a base reclame met with his greatest displeasure, just as it was looked upon by all respectabi European papers, a class which, as a matfry of course, does not include La France Musicale.

They are both young men and good fellows, and we most heartily wish them the success their efforts most truly deserve. The "Colton Dental Association" have during *e past three years given the celebrated Laughing Gas, to over thirty thousand different patients, and without accident, Dr. Rockwell, whose advertisement will be found on this page, has introduced and is using it in this city, and with the experience of 2,000 cases, during a time of four years, and with a new and improved apparatus, will be found ready at all times to operate for such as may desire. A& Call and see the names of those who have taken it during the past few months in this city, and be convinced. "RicHnmoND's HnMSLsi AGAN."-Mr. B. P. Richmond, has located himself at the City Crockery store, where he is prepared to do all kinds of work in the jewelry line. Judging from the past, we predict that the time is not far distant, when he will be compelled to procure larger quarters. All those in want of anything in the line of repairing, engraving, &c., would do well to leave their orders with him. It is with pleasure that we refer our eaders to the advertisement of Mr. L. S. Jedison, of the "Union Market." He has by strict and careful dealing won for himself a reputation second to none; and it is his intention to continue to merit a share of the public patronage. " Jen" knows his business thoroughly, and makes it a rule to serve all alike. Those in want of anything in his line will do well to give him a call. The custom prevails in Russia of cutting off the hair of a widow and burying it with the body of her husband. So rigorously is it practiced, that the blonde locks of the young and beautiful Countess de Monry were not Ntpared, though she was the wife of a Frenchman. So exacting and barbarous a custom is almost enough to make a widow wish her husband back again. *tat mathrt+ I take pleasure in announcing to the citizens of Lansing and vicinity, that I have on hand, and shall continue to keep a CHOICE LOT OF MEATS Both Salt and Freshd Sausage, Fowls, Fish, &c., which I will sell as Low as the lowest.

THE COUNTERFEIT SEVEN-THIRTIES.An employe in the secret service division of the Treasury Department gives the following description of the counterfeit $1,000 notes of the second series of seven-thirties recently put into circulation: 1st. The red seal in the counterfeit is larger than in the genuine, as will be seen by measurement, on folding one of the notes through the seal. The projecting star points on the edge of the seal are blurred and uneven in comparison, and the whole seal is coarser than in the genuine. 2d. The border of the counterfeit is blurred and indistinct, while in the genuine the lathe-work is clear and regular. 3d. The best test and one that will enable any person familiar with bank notes to throw out the counterfeit at sight, is the border of the coupon. In the genuine the star comes out very clearly-in the counterfeit it is dark, blurred and indistinct. A critical comparison of all the lathe-work of the counterfeit and genuine (face and back) under a magnifying glass, will detect numerous points of difference, as well as features in the counterfeit, that would enable an expert, without comparison, to condemn it. 4th. In the vignette on the genuine, the arm of the female figure just touches the top of the P in "Pluribus." while in the counterfeit the sleeve covers all but the lower part or stem of the P. THK COURSE OF TRUE LOVE.-The Smithfield Times tells a story illustrative of the old saw, that cc the course of true love never did run smoothe." A young couple in Smithfield laid a plan to outwit the vigilence of cruel parents and elope. The sequel was thus: the youth stood beneath the window-the lady attempted to climb out,--when, oh, horror, some one detained her from the rear! " Why dost thou not come, gentle Amelia?" She answered in an agitated voice, "I can't, Bill, main's got hold of my tfilters!" ',Wonders never cease." And this is particularly the case with Dart & Davis' Store. We often wonder what they ever intend to do with that enormous stock of Hardware! jir So far as is known, the first steam-whistle was made by a workman named Adrian Stephens, at Dowlais, England, about 1832, and fitted to one of the boilers there as an alarm when the water fell short.

Nunneries and other religious houses supply large quantities. The price of undressed"hair varies from $4 50 to $6 a pound, whilst in 1865 it was as high as $10 a pound. In France 150,000 pounds of human hair is sold annually, of which 30,000 pounds are exported. The sale of the raw material and its value when worked into plaits and chignons or other forms, represent the value of $16,000 -000 annually. Charles Martin always keeps a full supply of Curls, Waterfalls, Wigs, Twists, Rolls, Toupees, and in fact, everything pertaining to a first-class Ladies' Hair Dressing Establishment. THOSE IN WANT OF A HOME, will do well to read the advertisefient of Mr. C. C. Dodge. This gentleman is well known to the citizens of this city, as one of our most enterprising mechanics, and is also known to have erected more buildings than any other man in the place; but it is not to be wondered at, for he has at times, as many as sixty carpenters in his employ. He has recently connected the business of painting with that of building, and is prepared to attend to all calls in each branch. W A small boy out west one cold day was assisting his father to mark sheep with paint and brush. The father would catch a sheep and say to the boy, " Mark that." After the job was done the boy started for his home, which was some distance, and overtaken by a minister on horseback, who seeing the boy barefooted invited him to ride behind him. After the lad was seated he began to catechise him thus: "My lad, do you attend Sabbath School?" " No," was the reply. " You should attend the Sabbath School, mark that! all good children attend both Church and Sabbath School, mark that!" After many other things the minister ordered the boy to do he replied: "I've marked your back all over now, and it looks like thunder I" The reverend gentleman was somewhat astonished when he examined his coat. *B The figures say that the average duration of life is greater in the United States than in any other country. tr YOt Wt$SH A CoLAN $HAtV ---o TO--C-c C B u i B -l C4 I-d tsi ttj J- ) ]MARTIN'SW 'lfz BARBERING SALOON, Wa.hifngfton.d., Laiitar., *..

GUN SMITH SHoP.-The attention of our readers is called to the advertisement of Mr. Fred Trostel, who has recently restocked his place and is now prepared to attend to all who may favor him with a call. Those in want of anything in his line can do no better than to give him a trial, as he is thoroughly conversant with the business, having had a very large experience. TIME IS EVERYTHING -We are pleased to see that Mr. Charles Shaffer still continues to attend to the wants of the community in regard to the matter of time, and this is as it should be, for we know of no one more competent. He has had a large experience, having been employed in several first-class establishments. Mr. Shaffer warrants his work, and cannot but add to the very large run of patronage which he already enjoys. How TO ENJOY LIFE.-Hire one of those fine buggies at Daniels & Parmenter's and take your wife and little ones out for an airing occasionally. DENTIFRICES. Preparations for cleansing and purifying the mouth should be free from all acids, and contain as one of the principal ingredients, an alkali (such as enters into saponaceous substances), to neutralize the acid, and destroy the animal and vegetable parasites that are secreted by the fluids of the mouth. It has been found, by microscopical examination, that the secretions of almost every person's mouth contain more or less of vegetable and animal life that will withstand the application of acids and astringents, and will only succumb to alkalies, which not only appear fatal, but a preventive to their formation. The mouths of persons who have been in the habit of using soap freely, as a dentifrice, are completely free from these productions. Every preparation, then, should contain this substance. By no means use powdered charcoal 0--.. Thankful for past favors, we respectfully ask for a continuance of the same.

These substances are the same that are used to polish the surface of iron and steel; they are insoluble, and so acrid in their nature that, no matter how fine you may reduce them, their little grains will not only insinuate themselves between the neck of the tooth and the gum, causing an irritation of the parts which, in the end, may destroy the investing membrane of the tooth, but scratch the surface of the enamel. Not long since we had to remove the four upper incisors of a young lady who had been in the habit of using charcoal as a dentifrice, because their surfaces were seamed over with minute black lines that could not be erased, and the teeth loosened, and the gums abraded and irritated from its constant use. It would be well for every one, before using a tooth-powder, to see if it will scratch glass, moistened and rubbed over its surface. If so, it will produce the same effect upon the glossy, glass-like surface with which God has covered the teeth. The use of tooth-powder is to keep the teeth clean, and not to change their natural color. If the teeth are of a dark or yellowish hue, they never can be made white, except at the expense of the material of which they are composed; any powder, then, which whitens such teeth, is only acting chemically, and therefore injuriously, upon their structure. THE EBIGHT MEN D THE R IGHT PLACE."-This can be truly said of Messrs. Esselstyn & Sons, who are and have been engaged in the business of selling Groceries. They are wideawake, hard working, active men, ever ready to take advantage of any slight decline of prices, and by so doing, are enabled to sell at as low or lower figures than any other house in the city. They also deliver goods to any part of the cityfree; and thus save to the weary laborer many a heavy load that he would otherwise be compelled to' " tote " home in his basket. They always keep a full assortment of everything usually kept in an establishment of this kind. "A word to the wise is sufficient."

A clergyman, on a Sunday school occasion, was speaking to a large audience of children, when he saw that he must do something to rouse their attention. Just then he had spoken of Peter, so he paused, and asked if any of the children could tell him anything about Peter? but their mouths were all closed. He appealed to the older scholars-younger scholars, and then at last he came to the youngest, and he said, "come, now, little ones; shame your elders, and tell me something about Peter." "I can," exclaimed a little four-year old. "Can you? that is a good girl. Well, come right up here, and tell us all that you know about Peter." The little girl was passed forward to the stage. "Now," said the speaker, "let us hear what you know about Peter. Speak right out." The little girl spoke: "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin eater," etc. Oh, dreadful fall. Had the speaker spoken of St. Peter, perhaps the little girl might have done better. But let those who address children beware how they trust those little minds, for no one knows what associations he may wake up. PurER FUNK RoUTED.-The attention of those in want of Clothing i- called to the advertisement of Mr. D. G. Peck, who has recently filled his store from cellar to garret with the latest and most fashionable styles; and we understand that it is his intention to sell them at prices that bid defiance to the Peter Funk mock Auction Shoddyite concerns, that have been recently perambulating through the country. As it behoves every man to support home institutions, he cannot but meet with the success that-he is justly entitled to. Mr. T. W. Wescott presides over the cutting and fitting department which is a sufficient guarantee, and none need have any fears as to perfect fitting garments. A man boasted of having eaten forty-nine hard boiled eggs. "Why did you not eat one more and make an even fifty?" asked Sounds. "Humphl you want a man to make a hog of himself just for one egg?" When you buy your groceries, remember that Esselstyn's is the place tew go for he has all kinds. A. R. Thayer keeps a full supply of all the popular DIentifrices.

And as he warrants all his work, we do not fear but what he will meet with the most hearty support from the farmers in this vicinity. Give him a call, and do not take our word for it, To THE LADIES.-Your attention is called to the advertisement of Mrs. C. A. Northrop, who has opened rooms for the purpose of carrying on the Millinery and Dress-Making business, in all its branches. She is daily receiving the latest and most fashionable styles and patterns, and we have no hesitancy in recommending her to the attention of all who may wish anything in that line. NEW YORK CLOTHING STORE.-AS will be seen by advertisement, Mr. Schadt has purchased an interest in the above House, and as he is a practical workman, is prepared to cut and manufacture garments in the most fashionable styles. See for yourselves. mir A gentleman called on a rich miser, and found him at the table endeavoring to catch a fly. Presently he succeed in entrapping one, which he immediately put into the sugar bowl and shut down the cover. The gentleman asked for an explanation of this singular sport. "I'll tell you," replied the miser, a triumphant grin overspreading his countenance as he spoke, "I want to ascertain if the servants steal the sugar." Esselstyn has a large lot of the finest sugars which he offers cheap. A&, "Everything French is more elegant than that of any other nation," says a Parisian enthusiastic chronicler. * Even the crocodile brought from our possessions in Cochin China to the Jardin des Plantes is more elegant than the horrid beast of a crocodile brought from the shores of the Nile." As a bit of self-complacency that will do. Esselstyn has for sale the French Dressing for leather which makes old boots and shoes as good as new.

We are glad to see this, and call upon our citizens to sustain him in this undertaking. SOWEi:-Whatsoever a man sow-.th shall he also reap. It is well, with sturdy blows to transform the wildeiness into a beautiful home; it is -ictory to fashion the crude ore into almost defiant enginery; it is joy to make Nature give up her secrets, and vie with her in combining the elements; but to go within the dark, hollow walls of the Soul and take it from its peg and light, and coax, and fret it, til its latent powers shine forth and fill its whole house with divinest glory, this is rest. Oar sales, we confess, are slow, for our wares never wear out. B The "local" of the Lynchburg, (Va.) News thus describes a happy sight which he witnessed on Monday, in that city: "We saw a woman yesterday from the country, promenading Bridge street, underneath a new spoonbowl hat decked with a rooster feather, inside of a tilting "skeert," bzfore a huge water fall, having in her mouth a cora-cob pipe, and in her arms a baby about two months old. She looked like she felt she was in Mehomet's Seventh Heaven, and was just ready to exclaim ' cut my strsps and let me go to glory.' She was a curiosity." Z A "Down-Easter" happening a passenger on a Western steamboat banks to witness the exciting scene: but Yank, disdaining any proffered help, reached the shore safely, remarking coolly as he did so, "He didn't care a straw for himself, it was only a danged old life insurance company he was swimming for." He was insured for $5,000. House, Jones & Porter did not insure this man, but they are prepared to insure all who may give them a call. COME and SEE! COME and SEE!

Page 24 24 LANSING CITY DIRECTORY. a CITY MEAT MAREET.-There is no doubt in the mind of any one, that when they see a person advertise liberally, deal honestly and uprightly by all, they must succeed in whatever they undertake. This fact has been fully demonstrated in the case of Andrew Bertch, Esq. He has by strict attention to business, and taking for his motto the fact that a "nimble sixpence is better than a slow shilling," succeeded in establishing a business in the Meat line, that is not surpassed by any in the State. His Market is always supplied with the choicest of Meats, fresh, salt and dried, poultry, sausage, and in fact, everything that is usually kept in first-class, well ordered shops. This establishment is one of the oldest in the city, and we understand that his custom has always been increasing from the first opening day, which speaks well for him. To those who have lately come to dwell with us, we would say give him a call before purchasing elsewhere, and we do not think that you will ever, by any lack of attention, or from quality of meats, regret the fact that you dealt with Andrew. We think our citizens, one and all, will acknowledge that it is "the place" above all others. To THE FAMMERs AND MECHANICS.-It is not our wish to dictate to you, but simply advise. When you are about to make a purchase, of any very great magnitude, the question naturally arises: Where can I get the best and the cheapest? We propose to prove to you where those places can be found. Buy of the men that advertise and you will then have found the goal. They are the live men, the business men, the wideawakes. They always buy cheap and sell cheap, and generally take for their matto "Quick sales and small profits." When you find a man that does not advertise shun him. They are the drones, and if let alone will soon die out. This class of men generally are not "posted," and buy their goods either of "Peter Funk" Auctioneers, or pay such exorbitant prices for them that they cannot afford to compete with the live business man. There are, we are sorry to say, a few of this class of men in Lansing. They are a curse rather than a benefit, and if you only will it, they will soon come to the ignominious end which they so richly deserve. Shun these "pennywise and pound-foolish" shave shops. They are generally occupied by old skin-flints that will not hesitate to cheat you out of your hard-earned wages with all the gusto imaginable.

Oh, father, dear father, do please hurry home, My confidence no more abuse, You've promised again and again when you came, You would bring me a new pair of shoes. My big toe sticks out like the head of a clam, And you of neglect doth accuse, Because you have Ifaied to do as you said, And bring home my new pair of shoes. It is not very oft that a favor I ask, And this one you cannot refuse, For you know that it costs but a very small sum, To purchase a new pair of shoes. Then hurry, dear father, do pray hurry home, No more of your precious time lose, Oh, think of the cold, of your child and his toes, And pray hurry home with the shoes. Oh, how can you bear the soul-thrilling tho't, As you read in the papers the news, That Johns & Bailey are selling so cheap, Their stock of nice boots and fine shoes. You know that my toes ore sticking right out, Exposed to the winds and the dews, Then don't you forget when home you return, To bring me a new pair of shoes. NEw STORE, NEW STocK.-This is the case with Messrs. Johns & Bailey, who have recently moved into their New Store, on Washington Avenue, next door south of Mead's Block. To those who-visited the Fair recently held here, we have but to say, that the beautiful case of Boots and Shoes there on exhibition, was their handiwork. "The proof of the pudding is in eating it." See for yourselves. FRANKUxN'S ADvICE.-If you would purchase your wares at what they are worth, avoid those shops sporting extravagant fronts and guilded furniture; where they offer to supply you at less than cost. These are used only as decoys; and sooner or later their patrons will find to their sorrow, that they have paid too dear for the whistle. A QUAEnR WOMAN'S SERMoN.-My dear friends there are four things that I very much wonder at. The first, that children should be so foolish as to throw stones, clubs and brickbats into fruit trees to knock down fruit. If they would let it alone it would fall itself. The second is, that men should be so foolish as to go to war and kill each other. If let alone they would die themselves. The third and last thing I wonder at is, that young men should be so unwise as to go after young women. If they would stop at home the young women would come after them. Why do people buy their Groceries of men that will not deliver them, when Miller sends them to any part of the cityfree. GOODS!

[From the Lansing Republican, Dec., 1806.] INGERSOLL's NEW STOR.-The new Dry Goods Store of H. Ingersoll is now completed, and is really a splendid establishment. It is the finest store in the State, and being quite a novelty, merits a description. Its size is 44 by 100 feet-double the size of any other store in the city, and in addition to this, a gallery is constructed across the rear and sides, giving so much additional space for the display of goods; also the shelves are wide enough to receive goods endwise. Thus holding three or four times the usual quantity. The gallery is reached by a circular stairway at the rear. The store is entered by a door at each corner. The front beteen the doors is filled by fou#' plates of French plate glass, forming a front unequalled by any store in Michigan, and by very few in any large city. A semicircular show case, forty feet long, reaches from one door to the other; back of this are two circular counters, 66 feet in length, one of which encloses circular shelves, and the other surr(unds their office, cashier's and boc(k-keeper's desk. The counters and dresser shelves are of black walnut, and are supported by large legs similar to a piano leg. The Building is warmed by a furnace in the basement, 12 feet in length, having a perpendicular air chamber of tin, reaching into the third story. Mr. Ingersoll designed and constructed this store to accommodate his rapidly increasing trade, and it is his intention, as he occupies the best store to keep the best stock of goods in Michigan, and to maintain an establishment, which, for integrity, enterprise and fair WHOLESALE AND RETAIL!

W We would call ihe attention of our readers who wish to know where they can purchase pure Drugs and Medicines, to the advertisement of Messrs J. S. Tooker & Tillotson. We were surprised on visiting their store in the Lower Town the past week, to find a Drug Store so well conducted and with so large and well selected a stock. With the neatness of arrangement, extent of stock, and the order which prevails, we were particularly pleased, and speak well for the proprietors, who are whole-souled gentlemen and just the kind of men to succeed.

Such energy and perseverance as he has displayed deserves the most hearty support from the community around, and we trust the time is not far distant when he will be compelled to enlarge his already commodious works, in order to meet his constantly increasing trade. This is the fate of all advertisers. AW It won't do to be so devoted to a tender-hearted wife, as to comply with her request when she asks you "1Now tumble over the cradle and break your neck, my dear, won't you." -- The height of politeness is passing around upon the opposite side of a lady when walking with her, in order not to step upon her shadow. CHARTER REFUSED.-The Masonic Grand Lodge of Nevada, after considerable correspondence, rejected the petition of the Mount Moriah Lodge of Salt Lake for a charter, refusing to grant a charter which in any manner recognized the peculiar institution of the Saints. _________________________________________________________________________________________ U

We have seen samples of work from his shop, and have no hesitency in recommending him to the attention of all. THE INFLUENCE OF A WIFE.-A judicious wife is always snipping off from her husband's moral nature, little twigs that are growing in the wrong direction. She keeps him in shape by continual pruning. If you say anything silly, she will affectionately tell you so. If you declare that you will do some absurd thing, she will find means of preventing your doing it. And by far the chief part of all the common sense there is in this world belongs unquestionably to women. The wisest things a man commonly does are those which his wife counsels him to do. A wife is the grand wielder of the moral pruning knife. If Johnson's wife had lived, there would have been no hoarding up of orange peel-no touching all the posts in walking along the streets-no eating and drinking with a disgusting voracity. If Oliver Goldsmith had been married, he would never have worn that memorable and ridiculous coat. Whenever you find a man you know little about, oddly dressed, or talking absurdly, or exhibiting any eccentricity of manner, you may be tolerably sure that he is not a married man; for the corners are rounded off-the little shoots are pruned away, in married men. Wives generally have much more sense than their husbands, especially when their husbands are clever men. The wife's advices are like the ballast that keeps the ship steady; they are the wholesome, though painful shears, snipping off little growths of self conceit. And for all this care and devotion you cannot refuse to buy your wife one of those elegant Hoop Skirts at Mrs. C. Shumway's. a A lover wrote a letter to a lady who rejected him, saying he intended to retire "to some secluded spot, and breathe away his life in sighs." To which the lady replied, by inquiring whether they were to be medium or large size. The man has not since been heard from. sg 4 NUE. 6 No. li.

This Mill was but recently erected, and contains all of the modern improvements, among which we noticed a patent Separator, by which they are enabled to clean wheat of all kinds of dirt, sticks, cockle, etc. Mr. Hart feels confident that he can manufacture as good flour if not better, than any other Mill in the State; and when it is known that Messrs. Bertran & Skinner are in his employ, none will doubt his statement. He delivers flour and feed to any part of the city free. WmHI AND, GLOVE FArTORY.-As will be seen by an advertisement in our columns, Mr. E. R. Thompson, has opened an establishment of this kind, and we understand is meeting with the most flattering success. This is as it should be, for we know that he thoroughly understands his business. Support home manufacture, when it is to your interest t) do so, more particularly. BIr From Ingelhart's Photograph Gallery the latest news is that he still continues to carry on the picture business in all itsbranches. His flattering success in this city, depends not so much on his splendidly arranged Gallery, as it does upon his long experience in the business, and ten years of constant practice in the art of making pictures; though we venture to say, his sky-light and operating rooms are second to none in the country, and his reception rooms quite in keeping with a well regulated Gallery. See his card in another column. *- A literary announcement lately made, runs thus: "Our readers will be obliged to us for drawing their attention to some Sa: scrit works which will shortly appear. We have not read the books ourselves, but, if their contents are as interesting as their titles, their perusal must be the acme of delight. Their titles are: ' Swapants:hakschavimahamautrastotra.' ' Triguaatmixakdtlikastora.' ' Mpangalalitkvratodyapana.' Sanakarchatatchturthiv) atodyapna.' ' Anantatachaturdaricratakatha,' and ' Wougotobgohokepokeinerechingerewankafom." A. J.

Page 30 LA.NSING CITY DIRECTORY.  30 ef~- I --~ r I IBfl~ir~r~i~P~L~p~~sg THE Evas OF INTERMARRYINC.--A. melancholly case of the evils of intermarrying has lately occurred. We give the story in the sufferer's own words: " I married a widow who had a grownup daughter. My father visited my house very often, fell in love with my step-daughter and married her. So my father became my own son-in-law, and my step-daughter became my mother, because she was my father's wife. sometime afterward my wife had a son-he was brother to my stepmother. My father's wife, i. e., my step-daughter, also had a son; he was, of course, my brother, and in the mean time my grand-child, for he was the son of my daughter. My wife was my grand-mother, because she was my mother's mother. I was my wife's husband and grand-child at the same time. And as the husband of a person's grand-mother is the grand-father, I was my own grand-father." After fully convincing himself of the immutability of the above facts, the victim, in a fit of despondency, cut his throat with a boiled turnip. In this connection it might be well to add, if there is any others who may wish to repeat the experiment, that H. B. Arms keeps all kinds of country produce. NEw GROCERY STORE.-r. H. B. Arms has opened a store of this kind, on Michigan Avenue, East; and although it has not been long established, it bids fair to eclipse all others of the kind in the city. Mr. A. is an affable salesman, and has stocked his store with such an enormous quantity of goods, that one always knows where to find anything they may want. We heartily wish him success, for we know that he deserves it. At& A young fellow, whose better half had just presented him with a pair of bouncing twins, attended church one Sunday. During the discourse the clergyman looked right at our innocent friend, and said, in a tone of thrilling eloquence, "Young man, you have an important responsibility thrust upon you." The newly-fledged dad, supposing the preacher alluded to his peculiar home event, considerably startled the audience by exclaiming, "Yes, I have two of 'em." And now he buys his groceries of H. B. Arms, on Michigan Avenue, for the reason that his prices are low. To PROCURE A LUXURY.-Buy your Tobacco of Hinckley. H. B.

This is an institution that we have long felt the need of, and now that Mr. Jenison has succeeded in establishing a place of this kind, our citizens and farmers must consider it one of their first duties to see that he does not have cause to regret his undertaking this most needed enterprise. There will be auction sales two evenings in each week; probably Wednesdays and Saturdays. As "Jen" is well known to our citizens; we think it a sufficient recommend that everything will be none on the "square," and besides he warrants his goods to be just as represented.

FOpNDRY AND MACHINE SHOP.-It gives us great pleasure to refer our readers to the advertisement of Messrs. Metlin & Tunison, who have rebuilt their works which were destroyed by the disastrous conflagration, which visited them about one year ago. As one of the firm is a practical workman, they do not hesitate in saying that they can now fill any order which may be left with them. The unceasing energy which they have displayed in rebuilding their shops, entitles them to more than ordinary support, and we trust that our citizens who are in want of anything in their line will give them a call, for we know that you will not regret it. Success to you, gentlemen. s- The oldest remnant of mortality extant, is the skeleton of one of the earlier Pharaohs, incased in its original burial robes, and wonderfully perfect, considering its age, which was about eighteen months ago in the British Museum, and is justly considered the most valuable of its arcmological treasures. The lid of the coffin which contained the royal mummy was inscribed with the name of its occupant, Pharaoh Mykerimus, who succeeded the heir of the builder of the great Pyramid about two centuries before Christ. Only think of it-the monarch whose crumbling bones and leathery integuments are now exciting the wonders of numerous gazers in London, reigned in Egypt before Abraham was born, and only about two centuries or so after Mizraim, the grandson of old Father Noah, and the first of the Pharaohs had been gathered to his fathers.

Jefferson made the number threeThen Madison, the fourth was he. Monroe the fitth to him succeeds; And sixth, the junior Adams leads.

Buchanan, the fifteenth, is seen; Then Lincoln, as sixteenth, came in. Johnson, the seventeeath, and last, Still lives to close the illustrious past. Now let us stop until we see Who our next President will be. Fu1RNITURE.-Those in want of anything in this line will do well to call on Mr. Buck, for, as will be seen by his advertisement, he always keeps a large and complete assortment of everything in that lime. Those in search of low prices and good work, would do well to give him a call, as he is pledged to sell as low as the lowest.

Sometimes, of course, the days did not come out quite even-there would be eight days and a half at one place and nine at another. One man who 'was notorious for his meanness, just before the scholmaster began his dinner, said to him: " Mr. --, I suppose by rights, your time is up just about half way through this dinner. That's as near as I kin calculate, and I've calculated pretty close. But I don't wish to be small about it, and you kin eat just about as much as you do for ordinary!"

These gentlemen keep a large and complete assortment of everything which any family might possibly need, and will sell as lo, as the lowest. As they have agents traveling constantly, selling goods, their sales are probably higher than any other house of the kind in the city. By this means they have to keep refilling with a new stock, which will always give their customers a chance to select from articles fresh from the manufactory, so that none need have any fear of having old worn out shelf goods palmed off upon them. To THE READERS OF THE LANSING CITY DIRECTORY:-Mrs. L. Whelan, from Brockport, New York, desires to say that she has in her establishment, opposite the Lansing Republican Office, all that is required to furnish a first class institution of Millinery and Ladies Faiy Goods. In worsted work, Miss Lippla, her associate, has no superior. Miss Hyde, also in Mrs. Whelan's employ as a trimmer, stands at the head of her profession, in all that pertains to elegance and taste, that most indispensable requisite to success in a business like hers. With jan experience of years in the business, and in view of the above facts, together with a determination to please all, Mrs. Whelan hopes to gain public patronage in Lansing. DRAFTING.--The attention of our readers is directed to the advertisement of I. Gillett, Jr., to be found in another column. This gentleman is thoroughly conversant with the business, and would be happy to see those who may want anything of this kind done, at his residence on Capital Avenue, four doors south of Shiawassee street, where can be seen specimens of his skill. s1' A printer having been "flung " by his sweetheart, went to the office to commit suicide with the "shooting stick." The thing would not go off. The "devil" wishing to pacify him, told him to go into the sanctum where the editor was writing duns to dellinquent subscribers.

Baker, and it is but a just tribute to the energy which he has ever displayed, when we say that there is not another shop in the State, that can with more propriety lay claim to the name of the "Eureka Foundry." Mr. Baker has filled up his shop with the best of machinery, so that he is enabled to do any and all kinds of work that properly belong to this kind of business, and to all visiting our -beautiful city, we would ask you to examine the iron work upon our magnificent Hotel, or the work which adorns the palatial Stores on Washington Avenue. This is in itself a sufficient recommend, but should you require further proof of his ability to do all that he advertises, and more, call at his works, one block west of the Lansing House, on the corner of Washtenaw street and Capitol Avenue. Sii Among the numerous attractions of which our young and everprising city can boast, there is none more popular than the new and elegant Photographic establishment of Mr. B. F. Hall, located at 118 Washington Avenue. Although these rooms have been open for business but a few weeks, they have already attained a wide-spread celebrity and popularity in consequence of the excellence of the pictures issued from them. Mr. Hall has spared no expense to make his Gallery one of the best in the State, and coming as he does with years of experience in the largest Gallery of New York city, he is enabled to introduce many pleasing features which have been hitherto unknown in this part of the country. All the latest improvements, in instruments, apparatus, and accessories are to be found here, and we assure our friends that all the portraits, both large and small, executed at these rooms, evince a degree of artistic taste and ability seldom found outside of the largest and oldest cities. An important branch, and one to which the proprietor intends to devote especial attention is that of copying old likenesses into Photographs. He has instruments l5eculiarly adapted to that purpose, and what copies we have seen of his execution are certainly triumphs of the art.

WmHITcoB, Reorganization of the State Insurance Co. The State Insurance Company was first organized as a Mutual and Stock Company, but has issued no Mutual policies for the past two years, and it has been the wish of the stockholders to get rid of the Mutual branch of the business. In order to do so it was found to be necessary to obtain a new charter. Within the past month such new charter has been'approved by the Attorney General, and a thorough reorganization is being effected, that will make it a strictly Stock Company. By a provision in the new charter, the Company as organized, assume all the franchises and rights together with all the duties 6nd liabilities of the old State Insurance Company. Thus protecting the rights of all holders of policies heretofore issued. In reorganizing the Company, special reference was had to an act of the Legislature, passed at its last session, and a full compliance with its provisions has been made. The capital stock of the Company is $100,000, which', by the charter, can be increased to $1,000,000 if it should become necessary. The officers of the Company intend to pursue the same plan heretofore acted upon, of insuring nothing but first class risks, such as farm property and isolated village residences, hoping thereby to make the State Insurance Company second to none in the country. "AN ELEPHANT ON HIS HANDS."W1hen an Eastern nabob wishes to ruin a rival, or punish a man for whom he has a pretended friendship, he presents the victim with a white ElephanL The gift is sacred, and cannot be refused. The expense of keeping the huge creature, in the grand state which is obligatory on the Hindoo by his religion, is so enormous that the unfortunate recipient of the gift is ruined out of hand by the honor. In India there is, therefore, no more efficacious way of wiping out a public man than in heaping a costly honor upon him.

I ' r I I I g '~L r~rLPII ~ ~ ~ I l I To OUR PATRONS.-We thank you for the liberal manner in which you have come forward and assisted us in making this book what it is. When we commenced canvassing the city for this work, we did not think it possible to obtain names enough to more than fill a book of half its size; but we were most happily disappointed. Had we taken into consideration the spirit of enterprise that has ever characterized the merchants and manufacturers of our lovely city, we might have made a far more liberal estimate. As will be seen by the title-page, we intend to issue this work semi-annually, each edition, as in the present case, to be complete in itself; and it has been our sole aim to make this work worthy of the support and attention of all; but if we have failed, believe us, it is not from any wish or desire on our part, but simply want of ability. As we all profit by experience, or at least should, we think that in our next edition we can improve in many things, and present to our patrons a more complete Directory, than the present number. Hoping that you,'one and all, will have no reason to regret that you were induced to support this work, and that in the future you will have more than felt the importance of liberally advertising, I will again most heartily thank you, and wish you that success, which you by your untiring efforts, are justly entitled to. PUBLISHER. DRESS AND CLOAK MAKEn..-As will be seen by reference to our columns, Mrs. C. G. Vreeland has taken rooms over the store of Measrs. E. B. Millar & Co., where she is prepared to cut and fit Ladies' garments in the most fashionable style. This lady has had a great deal of experience in this business, and cannot but give satisfaction to all. Those of our lady readers, who are about to have anything of this kind done, will save both time, trouble and expense by calling upon her. S A young lady at a ball was asked by a lover of serious poetry, whether she had seen Crabb's Tales? "Why, no," she answered, "I did not know crabs had tails." "I beg your pardon, Miss," said he. "I mean, have you read Crabb's Tales?"-" And I assure you, sir, I did not know that red crabs, or any other had tails." Charles Martin keeps a full assortment of hair, which he will manufacture to suit the taste of his customers. rin.. d&. 1'~J* c I IC* S Commercial College I Now is the time and this is the place to obtain a Thorough This Institution is proving a success, and is bound to be a PERMANENT BUSINESS SCHOOL. ------oo----- EVENING- CLASSES: MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY EVENINGS, During the Fall and:'inter, in PENMANSHIP and BOOK-KEEPING! j" Thus giving persons otherwise engaged during the day, an opportunity to receive instruction in those branches. -00 -ates of Tuition Reasonable.
