Mr. E.B. Reynolds, the celebrated temperance lecturer, will speak in Rogers Hall to-night, Thursday. Go and hear him.

As will be observed by reference to the advertisement of the Bank of Marion Centre, that worthy institution has changed management somewhat. The change makes it even stronger than before. Messrs. Crane & Brewerton, with their deservedly popular Cashier, Mr. Dudley, is indeed a strong firm.
