Miscellaneous News

The steamer, Grey Eagle, on last Monday, brought up the largest amount of freight. It has varied for some time. Their charges are considerable lower than those of the railroad and the merchants on its line are not slow in discovering the fact, we should judge.

Following close upon the heels of Uncle Daniel Hake's picnic, in the evening of the same day, Wednesday, Aug. 27th, occurred the long-looked for and highly successful ball given by A. C. Thomas. The hall was thronged with a merry assembly, notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather. The dancing was kept up until after midnight, which accounted for our young folks yesterday, who could not afford to let their evening's pleasure interfere with the duties of the day.

School commences next Monday, and every preparation has been made for it. The building has been treated to a refreshing coat of paint, and it looks as bright as a daisy. Various other improvements have been carried out that will be relished alike by teachers and scholars. To
parents in the country, we would say that our city now offers better educational facilities than ever heretofore, and those desiring to place their children here to school will find that the expense is trifling, considering the advantages to be derived. Board is cheap while the tuition fee is merely one dollar per month.
