week, and during that absence, "Handy An

'pearance. The last we heard of him, he was
making tracks for some region where green
'things were more plentiful than in this vicini

is about to be opened in Eaton. The princi

in a "Know Nothing" paper, published in
."Boston, are purely American' in all their feat

is a political one. - .'
tj-Oiir readers must pot forget the Mason ic

cxneeted to be present, to witness the inter-
ts.ting ceremonies of the occasion. Our friends
.Wijireaa k Jr.rtrtMoH, of the "American

' up a sumptuous dinner on that day. Green

ITTThe fair lady who sent us the beautiful

ItrThe Anti-Liquor Law proscribes all liq
uors except Native Wine, Ale, Beer and Ci
ricr, and the hot weather being productive of
thirst, reminds Us that the most refreshing and
- cooling beverage for summer, except Water, is
the Native Wine manufactured by Caoaii &
Sons, a specimen of which we have ntptcud
(not by authority of the Probate Judge,) and
pronounce it a very superior article. Call at
their establishment and got half a dozen bot
lies, and try its good qualities. It is a healthy
rind lutcful beverage, and will .not makerfrun

even temperance folks.

Random thoughts for all Readers.
It baa been remarked that, ;' the proper
study of mankind a man." and yet, human na
ture is an enigma of roost difficult solution.
and so intricate in all Us labyrinths as to defy
the skill of the moat profound scholar. ' When
w look upon aociety, we art astounded atthe
ways of men, and our better nature ah inks
back at the injustice, Inhumanity and incon
sistency whcn stalks abroad with giant stUdes
in open uay. ir we contemplate men at they
appear unto us every day, we shall be com
pelled to conclude that this state of existence
is the only one wbfc-h mortals are to enjoy, and
that it is to be perpetual. The grasping am
bition of the man whose whole soul and mind
s bent in gathering ap riches, thousands up -a
thousands and acres upon broad acres, finds
but poor gratification in the reflection that, in
a few years at moat, the acquirement of a life
of uncea-ing toil and harrasaing thought, must
be parted with left for thankless relatives to
squander in reckless expenditure, flitting about
as a gay butterfly upon borrowed plumage.
We say it is a reflection devoid of Poetry, that
all the accumulated fortune pf a life of abste
miousness and self sacrifice the piles of gold
and glittering wealth the broad acres, must
be given in exchange for a spot of land, 'ix
feet in Ungthbytmin breadth! ''Contem
plate the scene," There is a moral contaiu-
e l therein, and wise is ha who draws it from
is secret hiding place, and makes it the rule
of his life.
The ambitious asp'rant who thirsts after
place and power among men panders to the
worst passions of our nature in the hope of
reaching the goal of his desires, finds but little
pleasure in the reflection that, ere long, in
stead of tbe grateful sounds of popular homage,
will come up from the hollow earth a lumber
ing of clods upon the coffin lid I "Slioul I not
the reflection liumble human pride ?" . '
He who drinks deep at the fountain of
knowledge struggles up the hill of acienee,
has the gratification of knowing that bis labor
will-benefit the present generation and gene
rations yet unborn, and that bis researches and
discoveries in the book of nature and science,
will redound to the good of humanity, and
"the amelioration of the condition of man
kind,' by teaching them primary truth im
parting a knowledge of their Author, nature,
ar.d future existence. The object and aim is
worthy a life of reasonable toil and privation.
He who plods along through life, earning his;
'bread by the sweat of his brow,", the mental I
powers clogged by the toil necessary to supply
the wantsof ihd physical constitution, won
dtrs why his condition is so, and what his fa
lure, repining at tbe decrees of destiny or

and that "dust he is, and unto dust he must

ttJIt is astonishing the large amount of bus
iness done in the art of Dagu-rreotyping in
Cincinnati. But the largest amount done by
one, is by Mr. J. P. Ball, No. 28 Fourth
street. It is an indisputable fact that there
never has been a better patronized gallery
the west than Ball's. Go there at what
time you will, and you are sure to see bis
saloons and operating rooms crowded. He has
operators all artists of the first class, as
well known to all visitors of the gallery.
pictures are gems of art and beau
tyremarkable for .accuracy of detail and
faitliulness of likeness. His gallery is a per
eoudior, where all who come may luxuri
in the enjoyment of everything that art or
genius can furnish for repose. Ball deserves
patronage. ,' '-. ' '

ber of thousands of dollars, lo Mr. Boavoni
for the purpose of rruecuting the defendant!
in the Martha1 Washington ease.; We do not
believe the member of Congress will vole
" cent for such a purpose. . We donottUnk
they should. Our own knowledge furnishes
ae precedent for such aa appropriation, and
we do not think the Government ehoujd take
out f Mr. Bi'&Tort'a bands,-that which he
has given eridwnce of superior ability to per-
ferm. . He has followed these men with a di-
termination and tenacity of pufpose:uneum-
pled, and perhaps, the like of which is untold,
even in Romance, proving again, that, "Truth
is stranger than notion! " Having-found
mem and late sufficient te arrest them twice
the last time to drag then into distant
State, and also means to have them bound tttr
for then appearance and trial, we think he
should have pursued the work to a. final com-
pletion, before asking an appropriation to de-I
fray expenses. If the Prosecution if in tbjs
instance as it did before, we do not think the
Governmunt should be saddled with, the costs
let them be paid by those liable and through
whose influence they were iucurred.. Mn-
bers of Congress, we hope,, will be careful
how they vote upon bills to give away the
treasureof the Government, particularly where
lt is to be used for a purpose of so doubtful a
character. Mr. Uuktob may it right, if he is
he muat certainly triumph, for he bas right and
Lav upon his side. If he cannot sustain bis
position with those two powerful weapons he
should abandon the case and give it up for a

wade out against a set of poor, friendless men,
without the aid of Government and money,
we.tnink neither should be granted. Why do
not, tbe Deiendants petition Government to
them ic proving their innocence f They
have spent most of their private fortunes in
defending themselves against the power of
Companies, $0., and ao when they
have lost almost every dollar they could
command, the powerful influence of Govern-
nient and thousands of an appropriation i in-1
voked against them. Forbid it Justice ! For.
bid 'it Heaven! If they are found guilty, let
them suffer the penalty of their crimes. We

in bringing them to1 justice, after such a ter-
mination, we would favor an appropriation to
indemnify him, but hot before ! These ire

The Martha Washington Case.
This great ease which has occupied so much
pf the counties attention. for the iaai two
years, has again bren disposed of for the pres
erit, by the authorities at Helena, Arkansas,
the Prisoners all being bound over to answer
oa a charge of Arson and Mrrder The peo-
pie of Helena, displayed during the inve-
ligation, a ra'mnets and desire for a fair and
impartial administration of justice, which eom-
raaiid the highest praise. The people in
the north, many of them imagined the pris-
oners had fallen into the hands of fir attr,
cannibals and onfcide barbarians who arrnin-
istered justice according toJudgeLynch'scode,
and predicted that once upon the charmed
shorss of Arkansa, if Law failed to execute
them (or supposed crimes committed airamst
its dignity, the bot brood of the people would
measure their hospitality with Boweknives.
and give them & safe passage to the land of
rpirits by a greeting from one of Colt's six
shooters I But how different Law and Jus
lice has triumphed, and iu Arkansas, friends
nobly stepped forth and asserted their belief in
their innocence, by going security for their ap
pearance at anolhe' tribunal. We are inform
that three of tee Jurors who trere eompellel
ho find true bill againat Ihem, upon the rep-
reaentations presented before a Jury cf inqui-
ry, eatered intotonds assecu-ity for the ap-
pearance of some of the prisoners, and no dif.
ficulty was experienced inobtainingbail. The
people treated them as innoenil men, a nd de
mined so to do, until they were proven guilty!
Here is a commentary for men who profess
to be more coof and less hpt blooded than
southern men. By then conduct In this trial,
the people of Arkansas have won the admira-
tion of every lover of justice in the nation.
By their conduct in going bail for the defend-
ants, and removing them from the dangers of
death, attendant, particularly on persons un
aid acclimated, and restoring them for a season to
their friends and families, the citizens of He-
lena have worn laurels in tbe cause of re
insurance manity, and deserve the admiration of the
world.. , Southern people though they may
have vices, have also many noble virtues as
friends they are true and constant no deceit
no faltering willing to sacrifice all upen
tbe allir of friendship. But, we believe,
irig in regard to these men and their agency in
burning the Martha Washington! Havine
passed through several fiery ordeals and com-
ing out unsoathed, the people are beeinnine
to think persecution has taken the place of
proseeutwrn and a desire for revenge usurped
the love of juttiee, and the rountry is begin-
ning lo vote the whole thing W unmitigated
bore, and tbe crimes charged, the imaginations
of a distorted mind or revengefuf heart. Th
press too, we notice, is beginning to spea

REFLECTIONS ON THE MARTHA WASHINGTON
