In regard to the recent combination of the Merchants' Telegraph Co., with the Postal Co., the South Bend Register refers to the treatment accorded the latter company by the public and the benefits the public expected to derive from its construction, in the following language: The Postal and Bankers & Merchants' telegraph companies have formed a colossal combination, with thousands of miles of p<3le8 and tens of thousands of miles of wires. The professed object of the Postal company when it was organized was to relieve the public of heavy telegraph tolls and by reason of that profession the progress of the company's lines through the country was a triumphal march. The best right of way was accorded it through tiie country and the best streets were set apart for its entrance into cities and towns. But thus far the general public for some unexplained reason has been debaiTed from the enjoyment of the benefits expected to be derived, by the com-p-^^'s failure to open offices for local business, though the wires have long been up and in operation. As to philanthropic profession the same may be said of the Bankers & Merchants' company. Each alone promised the Western Union a formidable competition pregnant with beneficial results for the public, and if this consolidation is in good faith with a view to strengthening that competition the public is to be congratulated on being relieved of the bu^ens imposed by a giant monopoly, but if it is made merely to facilitate the gobbling of the whole thing by the Western Union the public is to be commiserated. The public has been deceived so often by alleged new telegraph companies that it continues to take their promises with a grain of salt. Boll of Honor.

New Era.—Before I left home many of my friends and neighbors requested me to write and keep them informed as to my health, the country, and many other matters, so I have thought I would try and comply with the request by writing occasionally to The New Era, as by that medium I can reach more of them than by any other; and if the editor thinks this worthy of a place in its crowded columns, all right; if not, all he has to do is to consign this to the waste-basket and I will never tell. We left Albion June 2, and spent Tuesday and a part of Wednesday in Chicago; then we ran up to Milwaukee and spent four hours in looking over the city. Then ran over to Madison and spent the night and the next day in the city, and the next day ran to North Freedom, 182 miles northwest of Chicago, and here we are today and expect to spend some time in this vicinity, and to this place you may send The New Era until further orders. We have had a very pleasant time—the weather has been behaving most beautifully, and we are both feeling better than when we left home. what we saw in chicago. I will not at this time say anything about the convention or Lincoln Park, but may do so at another time. If any of the readers of The Era visit Chicago this summer they should not fail to visit the "Battle of Gettysburg." I shall not attempt to describe the painting but will rather try to describe my own feelings. You enter a large circular building in one of the busiest portions of the city, ascend a flight of stairs, and in less than one minute are transported from the noise and bustle of a great city to the mountains and valleys of Pennsylvania. The tide of time is rolled back twenty-one years, and instead of the peace, prosperity and security of the present, you are in the midst of those horrid four years tiiat deluged the country in blood, filled it with orphans and widows, and made it a land of mourning. "Big Round-Top" mountain (Gen. Lee's headquarters) is before you in the distance; the sky is clear except now and then a fleecy cloud is seen floating in the hot July sky. Another step and you see the low foot-hills Union side, drawn to the city to assist in tlie nomination of a president of the United States; the same government they had periled their lives to maintain, and in which many had lost a leg or an arm. In a little more than a month some of those in gray will look from the same platform at the same scenes. They will be drawn to the city for the purpose of assisting in the naming of a candidate for the same high honor. Will they try by their votes in 1884, to gain what they were contending for on that bloody field under the July sun in 1863? God grant that they meet with the same overwhelming defeat as on that July day. If Col. W. W. Dudley were nominated for governor of the state of Indiana, and the portion of the painting representing his desperate struggle for the colors of his regiment could be exhibited in every township in the state, it would require no other campaign document to elect him by a majority larger than the old Hoosier State ever gave any candidate on either side.

A large chorus choir will be organized under the direction of Prof. C. C. Case, of Akron, O. Fine soloists will be in attendance, and the grand vocal and instrumental concerts will be in advance of any thing ever undertaken at Island Park. There will be brilliant illuminations of the lake and island, fire-works processions, camp-fires, etc. A new steamer has recently been put on the lake, and there is a large fleet of elegant clinker built row boats; in short, nearly every thing needed for rest, recreation and improvement, is provided.

Luke, wiil be at Albion, commencing July 28, a&d oootimiMig six weebk wiÜi here and there a flock of sheep feeding on the short grass or rusticating in the shade of the trees scat -tered here and there over the fields. Another, and long lines of men are rushing over the level plain, but at every step the line is thinned by shot and shell and minnie bails that are being hurled upon them from the Union lines from Cemetery Hill, toward which they all are tending. Another step and you shrink back with horror! The field is torn, seamed and gashed with cannon ball and bursting shell, and strewn with horses and men torn and mangled by shot and shell. Now, it ne^ only the roar of cannon, the shouting and groaning of men, and the sharp crack of the rifle to make the scene too hor rible to look upon. We saw the painting perhaps at the most favorable time possible. The convention had drawn to the city many of the very men who had been living actors on the field before them. It was painful to watch their countenances as they recognized some portion of the field where they had been engaged, or where they had lost a comrade on that bloody field. Men who had, twenty-one years before, faced the cannon's mouth and the withering fire of rebel infantry without flinching, now wept like children, so vivid was the frightful scene recalled to their minda The scene represents Üie battle on the afternoon of the 3rd day of July, 1S63, when Gten. Lee made his last desperate attempt to break the Union lines. But I promised not to attempt a description of the painting, and why should I ? Now, while I have no ^eeire or intention to make these letters in any sense political, yet I can-Qot refrain from recording my own le^ags. During oar stay I think Hre warn, at least fitfy or more mm wbö had been in the battte on tlie Garrett Herald. From the New York Sun we clip the following notice of the special train that passed through this place on Saturday last John Mitchell was the engineer from Chicago to this place, and E. J. Boardman from here to Chicago Junction. The special newspaper train over the Baltimore and Ohio road, conveying the Washington correspondents from the convention, left Chicago at 2:10 p. M. on Saturday (or 3 :10 Eastern time), and arrived at Washington at 2 p. M. Sunday, making the run of 813 miles in 23 hours, while the actual running time was 19 hours and 30 minutes only. The time from Chicago to Chicago Junction 273 miles) was C hours and 30 minutes, actual running time 5 hours and 35 minutes, an average of upward of 52 miles per hour. At one time 57 miles were accomplished in 59 minutes. The final 27 miles, from Bamesville to the Ohio River, was made in 28 minutes, and six miles of the distance was run in 4 minutes, or at the rate of 90 miles an hour. Tae 463 miles from Chicago to the Ohio was run in 11 hours and 20 minutes, including 38 stops; actual running time 9 hours and 20 minutes, or the dnparalleled average for the distance of fully 50 miles per hour. From the river to Washington no special effort was made other than to bring the entire run within 23 hours, until Washington Junction was reached, when the engineer was instructed to run the last 44 miles at ilie rate of a mile a minute. He exceeded the limit, and ran the last 16| miles in 14 minutes. Island Park Meetings—1884. I.a<irange Register. One of the most terrible crimes ever perpetrated in this vicinity occurred on Tuesday evening, between nine and ten o'clock, in which a young lady by the name of Cook was outraged by an unknown man. The girl is about eighteen years old, and is employed in the family of Silas Rose of this village. At the time above stated a boy who is unknown, called at Rose's and told the girl that her father, who lives two or three miles north of town, had been badly hurt by the running away of his team, and that she must go home at once, stating that she would be met by a man in a buggy who had been sent for her. She got ready and started, accompanied by one of Mr. Rose's small boys. They passetl out of town on Detroit street, and after passing Mr. McCoy's, they came to a place where a man was sitting on the fence. They asked him if he was the man who had been sent for them. He made no answer but sprang to the ground, seized the girl by the throat, tiirew her to the ground and in the most fiendish manner outraged her person. The girl fought with all her might to protect her honor against this foul monster but to no avail. During the struggle nearly all of her underclothing was torn from her person. The boy being nearly frightened to death by the assault, started for town on a run, but was not able to give the alarm until too late. As soon as this inhuman vampire releas ed the girl, she, more dead than alive, made her way to Henry Price's and told the terrible story. The alarm was at once sounded and the people turned out en masse and scoured the country for the scoundrol, but at the time of going to press he had eluded capture. It is to be devoutly hoped that the fiend will be caught and made to suffer the fullest extent of the law for his awful crime. Later.—George Densmore, an ex-penitentiary convict, has been arrested for the crime and lodged in jail. Lew Roberts has a bran new baby. Candidates are getting in their work. Harry Reynolds, of Ligonier was in town on Friday. Charley Kesler was sent to the Reform School one day last weeL G. W. Mummert is having bay windows put upon his residence.

Erysipelas has set in on Thomas Piggott's hand, and he is having a sore time of it Several of our good citizens attended the picnic at Diamond Lake, Sunday, and report having had a good time. John Meek and wife are visiting with the father-in-law of the former (M. M. Dodge) in Briceton, Ohio, this week. It's fun to see the boys tumble off the bicycles; especially those big fat fellows who get jolted up so when they fall. Well, Mr. "Israelite," I showed that to "he," as you called him, and "he," says that "he" is aware of how you get your news straight from this big burg of Wawaka, and is aware of the certain county paper "he" is corresponding for, and is also aware that a certain correspondent to a county paper very often handles his news; and also is aware that people sometimes know more about his affairs than he does himself. Fourth of July Excursions. On July 3 and 4, 1884, the B. & O. R. R. Co. will sell round trip excurr sion tickets to and from all stations on its Trans-Ohio Divisions, at low excursión rates.

VIOLA NOTES. by vidoc. Jesse Fulk was seriously hurt in Hudson's mill last week. A Mr. Engle, we understand, was taken seriously sick recently. Com, we guess, is all planted, but we are dreadfully i^raid it has not all been cultivated yet Thomas Hud^n purchased a large lot of logs of Mr. Ward. They scaled 150,000 feet, we believe. Why is it that Henderson Clem-mens can catch more fish than any ten men in Green township? Henderson, stand up and account for this. The visitors in this vicinity the past week were Mrs. Maloney, of Avilla, Thomas Armstrong and Miss McMillan, of Garrett, and Mr. Had-ley, of Albion. The "concern" man says he don't know what a liar is. Will some kind and benevolent instructor go over and broaden sonny's views on this important subject? ÜTEJ-W BE.IOK: Livery & Feed-Stable.
