All tho Governors of the original thirteen States also proffer timely counsel to tho young of America, ancl to their parents and tPiichr-rs. Theso representative? of the "old thirteen" are Governors Prescott of New Hampshire, Eieo cf Massachusetts, Tan Z mjt of KhoJe Inland, Hubbarcl of Connecticut, ilobinsou ol Pork, McClcllau of Now Jersey, Hartrauft of Punnsyl- v.inia, Goehran of Delaware, Ocirrnll of Mirylaii'l, Holhday of Virginia, Y.inuo of North Carolina, Humpton of South C.irolma, and Colquitt of Georgia. Some of tho Governors write at considerable length; but be- sides their contributions tho number contains articles emphasizing various aspects of Washington's life, ctiarac ter and eximple, by Joseph Cook, Edward and tho P.i'V. Dr. Biehard Newton. Charles Dudley W.trnor compares Washington with Dr. Bonson. J. Lossing described nil his headquarters in his varimn campaigns; unil Prosidout G. W. C. of Washington and Loe University, includes in his article an unpublished letter on ediicatioa, written by Washington himself. The two tine poems of the number are by William Gallon Bryant and Paul H Hiync, representing tho North and the South. Tho usual weekly kelps to the Sunday-school lesson fill five nlditional pages. Wo acknowledge the receipt of a copy of this splendid paper, and hive filed it aw.iy for fu- ture reference. Wa copy, however, at this time, the comments of Presi- dent Hityes: WASHINGTON, Feb 1G, 1878. To Iftc K'.litor of Ilia Sunday ScJicol only American whose birthday is generally known nn widely celebrated is Washington. The Father of his country i-i remem- bered and honored throughout the world for what he did and ivlmt he None of my young friends who read tho Sunday School nre likely to have an opportunity to do such great deeds as were done bv Washington. But ull of them will have nn opportunity to be like him in character. They can have his love of country, his integrity, and his iirmuess in doing tho right. To have suuh a character is better than rank or wealth or fame. It is a possession cannot bo taken away. As Webster suid so impressively of a ''sense of "It will be with us through this life, will be with us at its close, and in that scene of incon- ceivable solemnity which lies yet farther onward" it will slill bo with us.

The sun1, of is needed by April 30 to meet the ex- penses of the year. Within the last eight months the debt of the Trinity Baptist Church, New York city, has been reduced from over to less than The Rev. J. B.

Tho American Bible Society an- nounces that thus far during the eur- r nt year tho expenditures have ceeded tho donations by 850.000. The society has made grants of 200, 000 copies of Scriptures during the year, and has appropriated to tho foreign field. Tho New Jersey Sabbath Union has presented a memorial to the Gov- ernor of the Stute, iu relation to the illegal Sunday railroad trallic. The Uni'jn muintains that, according to the statute, no road has a right to run' more than one passenger train eicu way on Sundays.

In addi- tion to the cash fund, subscriptions nnd legacies have been received suffi cient to make a total of The Church Board has thus far aided churches. Tho Chicago Baptist University, which has been for some time in trouble, is n a fair way of being wholly relieved. Dr. Gaiusha An- derson has been elected President, and tha office of Chancellor has been abolished; thus disposing of one very perplexing question. The insurance company's claim of has been reduced to this hitler sum represents the wholo of the present indebtedness. PRIZK ITEMS. From the Times-lleview we extract the subjoined information concern- ing Tuscarora'a favorite: The Grand Prize hud shipped for the month of February bullion val- ued ut 3151.787 90, and there is still another shipment to come on Fsb- rndry account probably which will not ba less than Thus it will, be .seen that the two nulls, with a total of thirty stamps, will turn out for the company over for the short mouth, being almost the same as last month. How about dividends now? In tho last shipment made by the Grand Prize thera were thrive bars which nearly SI.000 each in gold; aggregating a little over 82.- 900. The ore from the bottom all shows more gold than ever, as evinced by tho fact that all the bars run over each, while formerly they only run something like A COMING Great Lon- don Circus is already preparing for its Eastern Summer trip.

We are indebted to Senator Jones for a copy of his great speech, enti tied "Coinage of Silver Dollars." de livered in the Senate of the United States Ftfbmiry 14. 1S78. during the debate on the silver bill. It is an able and exhaustive argument, and is creditable alike to the head and heart of its author. Its reaaoniig cannot bfl refn'el and the facts and figures adduced in support af tho re- nnnetizjtion of silver show a knowl- edge of the subject which could onlv have been acquired by deep and tho." ongli research. The speech k con- ceded by even the opponents nf the silver bill to ba the mo'-t effective delivered during the silver debate, and it, undoubtedly, had great weight iu deciding the question. The thanks of the people are due Senator Jones for his untiring efforts JD their be- half in the great-coolest with the money kings of the east, and tha pains taken by him to convince his Republican colleagues in the Senate that silver bill passed .by the Democratic House ought to. become alawcf the land.- BODIE MINING NEWS. In the last issue of the Bodie Stan- dard we find the following reference to the mining prospects of that camp: During the week matters have been progressing in our various mines with about the samr regularity us for two months past. Work is being done with all the available force that can be handled advantageously, and it will ba some weeks yet before moie men can be put on; so that the mines are now really only getting ready for developments which tha uear future may bring in sight. The only strik l or changes in the general character of the ores buing daily produced are in mines whose well known stability make such changes and strikes only matters of daily expediancy, and'of their extent and quality we are not sufficiently informed to mention in detail. This we only know: that sev- eral of the mines on the lode have, during tha past ten days, made de- vetopmentj which are ol sufficient worth to cause the owners rnu  a o 3 ra M I O N H b d P 1 S H 5 0 3 o o 19 H m 2 S Q H H O SB ftfi 0 01 w H o Q o oO go -O o 3 en o pENO SAVINGS BANK, CAPITAL PnxsrDtKT.................M.
