struck his niit.d, bis face wculd glow with
suppressed' laughter. Yet this wculd
come at tbe most terrible details of the
crime, caused the blood lo tingle to the
very tips of one's fingers with suppressed
(motion."' We condense that portion of
his story previous to the commission of
the murders. -
Probst siid he was i native of Baden,
and is twenty four y arsold. Coming to
the country in 1803, he immediately en
tered theermy. He deserted twice, was
arrested, but escaped by telling the Pro
vost Marshal be never' was in the army.
He entered another rcpinicot, served a
few months and was discharged.
Ho subsequently worked in several
places, nnver stopping long at one place,
and filling in the remainder ol his time
bv dissiDstion. Among other places he
worked three weeks at Mr. Dering's, and
wasdischarged because lo would not work
on a rainy day During his S'ay there he
saw Mr. Peering counting considerable
money,' and he subsequent y detecm ued
to rob him. W ith tins intention, he went
hark to Mr Peering and requcsled-wnik,
which wss give him. Ho tudicd soue
plan of robbing him wititatrt murder, but
without effect. Kipht or Im days before
be eonimission ol the deed be thought ol
murdering the whole family. Ilosajs:
Mv first plan wss lo kill him and get
he money ; I could not get the xtoney in
any other way. i inougni oi auiini!

. The Democracy r Ohio., , 1
In the ocurse of a -.month front ibis
time, the Democratic swart will, pt re
quired to pat ia ,aoaai4tisM peraeae- ao
candidates lor the various positions to be
filled at the October Election. , Though,
so far as the offiosrs to be eleoted are con
cerned, the election might not be ceosid
ered very import! nt; yet, upon account
bf tbe principles involved in the issue,
between tbe Democracy and the radical
Kepublioaoa, we deem it tbe most im
portant election ever held in the State.
We look upon tho election in, Ubio and
other States this fall, as the turning point
10 ihe nation's destiny; VUbio must, and
shall be,, redeemed from the lUdioal dis-
union thraldom, is the watchword of the
Democracy. . . . . . .
It behooves tbe party, therefore; to
adopt every hooorablo means for so glor
ious a consummation. Uood, . reliable
democrats, should be aeleoted as Dele
gates to the Convention, and the first men
the State chosen as Candidates upon
the Domoeratlo Ticket. Nothing should
be done hastily. Everything in .its or

October election,, will be tbe eanvess lor

DEMOCRATIC STATE CONVENTION.
Thursday, K-y 24,1366. '
The Annual 8tate Convention of tbe
Democratic parly of Ohio, will be held in
Columbus, on Thursday, the 24th day ol
May,' 1SGG, to transact such business as
may come before it, and to put in nomina
tion candidates for the following offices :
Secretary of State :
Judje o(fe Supreme Court
Member of the Board of Puhlic Vi'orht,
The basis of representation for the ap
portionment of Delegates is aa follows ;
One Delegate for each county : one for
every five hundred votei givon for Gen.
Geoboi! W. Moboam for Governor, IMr
October , ancl an additional one for every
fraction of two hundred and fifty, and op
wards. Ashland Couaty is entitled lo five del
egates, under this porportionment.
The great issuo before the people is,
whether all the powers of Government
shall be consenlrated in the hands of tbe
General Government the Stales being
reduced 10 the condition of counties and
a consolidated despotism be thereby es
tablished ; or, whether those rights of
local self-government which our fathers
enjoyed and which we inherited from
them, and without which there can bo no
real liberty, no wise governmert, no pub
lio economy, no light taxation, shall be
preserved. A powerful faction, repressnt.
ed by a majority in Congress, have con
spired to overthrow (he free and bem ficcnt
Institutions of our fathers, and lo substi
tute therefore an Oligarchy of privileged
classes, crashing the mass of the pee pic
and all individual 1ibcrty,ander the weight
of a despotic and unrestricted General
Government. To effect this object, they,
in plain violation ol tbe Constitution, ex
cludo eleven Stales from repmeotation
n Congress, and idsist npon eonfening
upon negroes the right to vote not out
of regard to (he negro, but because ihey
expect to be able, with their money, to
control his vote, and thereby perpetuate
their party asoendency. Let every man
who-is opposed to tbe schemes of tho eon
pirators, who cherishes the institutions
founded by our futhers, who appreciates
the necessity and benefits of local self-
government, who is oppesed to seeing the
great Stato of Ohio thorn of ber dignity
and rcdueed to the .dependent condition
of a county, or who ia opposed to Negro
Suffrage, join with the Democraey in res
cuing our country from the grasp of tha
Malignsnts. ' . - .
By order of Democratio State Central
Committee of Ohio,
JOHN 0. DUN, Chairman
Patint Miniciitib If falih would
eiue diseases, our physician'a oeenawsien
would be gone ; the afflicted need only
read tbe advertiecnta in the papers to be
"made whvle ;" but tho nostrums proper
ed by these pseudo doctors do not often
"back up" tbe faith inspired by tbeir ad'
vertisementt. Wa do not mean to con
demo all so called patent medicines, for
