Anti-Nebraska, Fusion Convention.
According to previous arrangement and an
nouncement, a number of the anti-Nebraska
Fusion spirits of Preble eounly"asserhbled in
Eaton, on Friday last, to the number or two
or three hundred, for the purpose of hearing
speeches, making nominations for County of
fices, and sundry other grave and important
matters. The masses met, appointed officers
and a committee on resolutions, and adjourn
ed fir dinner and consultation.
At one o'clock tiny came together a motley
crew, and the resolution committee reported
two or three resolves laudatory of Litwrs D.
CAMraKLL, (which we intend to pub-
Hsu,; ana resoivea it was inexpedient to
make nominations for County Officers ! Here
was a dilemma! The Free Soil, trading poli
ticians, had been induced by thsCTyue to be
lieve that, nominations sanctioned by the au
thority of a Mass Meeting, would be all pow
erful and sweep the county upon a breeze ol
popular triumph, but the masses were not
ready to enter into the contemplated bargain
and sale, and no nomination were made!
Then might have been seen depicted upon the
countenances of the Free Soilers disappoint
ment and ehagrin! Some left the "Mss
Meeting" in a rnge, declarm? that "it wasan
old line Whig concern, cot up for the purpose
of deceiving the Free Soilers," and asserting
that such proceedings would not gull the Free
Soil party! Confusion reigned supreme in the
urnds of the disappointed, interested few.
while triumph was visible in the faces of aid
,,iu were ueurnimeu that no ras-
cnlity should be perpetrated then and there, if
iney could prevent it, and most gloriously did
they succeed. Speeches were made by some
our West hlkton friends in favor of nomi-
nations, but all avaied not, for the mossts of
the W lug party in Preble county, are not wil
ling to be transferred to the Fiee Soilers, as
was lully semopstraled on Friday Inst.

and begged hard for the people of this Dis

marks, we imagine both gentlemen thought

The effect of the meeting was nnvlliirie but
gratifying to the Clitpie or Free hoilers, and
proceedings fell like a wet blanket upon
hopes of some, who confidently exnecled
placed in nomination for office upon that
occasion. The meeting was smalt for a Mast

- At lOo'clock A. M. the scaffold was thrown
open, and the persons who were in readiness
to witness "the last scene of all" of one who
was a mortnl being, eroceeded to arrange them
selves in the Inrge vault of the prison, where
the scaffold was erected. The scaffold was
composed of a platform of heavy boards,
about sis feet squire, strengthened by beams

pavement below, and projecting over-head and
made more secure by transverse beams, over
which was thrown a single beam lo which

was instigated by the old woman, because he

squandered it in drunkenness, It was not to

DAY BEFORE THE EXECUTION.
The Editor of the Dayton Empire, in com
pany wilh James ll.Ila;gott, Esq., called upon
condemned the duy before his execution,
found him calm and composed, and quite
willing to converse n3 lo the murder nnd the
causes that led to them. We avail ournelves
the report of Mr. Pitch:
When we got through with this part of the
conversation (concerning his eternal welfare)
remained silent and thoughtful tor a pio

we remarked to him that the eenerni onin-
was that ha had committed the murder for
sake ot getting ho'd of the old woman's
I'ropfcrty, or a portion of it. This he denied
lion eiiipuHucaiiy. lie raid lie was in
fluenced by entirely different motives, and he
principally instigated to the net by a de
sire to revenge himself for the wrongs he had
suffered from the old womanand his wife. He
ms wile with being the author of all
misfortunes. He said ihe was unfaithful

and he knew that the old woman not

and he resolved (o have reveiiL'eon both.
far as the mother was concerned, he effect
ed his purpose, how terribly the public already
jis oecinrea ns a aying man that this
the motive which drove him to the com.
oflhs murder, and that he had
to possess himself of the liltle property
belonged to the family.
e have here briefly recited the substance
the conversation, which took place durine
interview with Dick. We could not re

was entirely voluntary. .-
DESCRIPTION OF DICK.
person he wasfive feet eight or Icd in-
high, stoutly built, wilh broad, heavy ahonlders..
His face -was peculiarly forbidding,
With a low bin broad forehead, small, pig-like
eyes, a nose of immense aiite, he presented. In
a striking manner, the predominating expres
sion of the animal. A brutal nature seemed
to govern all hia actions, as well as a total
want of all moral intelligence. That such
monster could exist in a community like ours,
and in thin enlightened age, would'aeem im
probable, but we had the strongest evidences
of the fact; the last nf which was the expintion
of s nortion of his crimes on, the scaffold, which
we have just witnessed. ....
This ia the first we ever beheld, but it im
pressed us as being far more terrible than one
in the presence of thousands; amid all the dis
play of drums beating, colors (lying, and all
the "pomp end circumstance'' of the essembled
multitude. If legal retribution must demand
the life of the offender, let it be done in the
gloom and shade of a dungeon vault, nnd be
witnessed alone by those, apppointed by law
to perform the office.
Francis Dick has expiated his crimes, as far
as could be done on earth. What is to be done
is before another tribunal. Ilisstruggleonthe
gallows in rendering up his life was severe, al
though byall those who examined, it wasaid
his neck was broken. He drew up his feet,
and bin breast heaved deeply several minutes
after his fall. The cap drawn over Ins lace.
prevented t'mt ghastly siieclaffle Irom bein
visible. He was taken from the gallows am
deposited in his coffin at a quarter to 11 A. M
liavmi; hung suspended thirty minutes, and
was pronounced '-dead, dead, dead." e un
erstood that the body would be haneed over
to the Catholic priest forinterment, who would
afford all ceremonies of the church ritual.
i believed that none of his family were pres
ent, ind up to the last he positively refused to
see his wile. Thus has i'runeis Dick perished
in the 35th yar of .his nee, aftei committing
enormities such as seldom fall to the lot of
journalists to record, lo fill a murderers grave
and leaving no human creature to deplore his
Riot And Blooshed in Newark.
The American Protestant Association
Lodges of New Jersey had a gret parade in
Newark on Tuesday. Lodges from New York
and Brooklyn being present, some 1,S00 per
sons forming the procession in the morning.
They marched through several of the main
streets, nnd nt noon took dinner at Military
Hall.' The Newark Daily Mercury in an Ex
tra gives Ihe following account nf a riot and
disturbance which occured in the afternoon:
Upon re forming in line nt three o'clock, in
.Market street, the pmcess'on marched down
liioad to William stret,and up U'i liain street
to Uign. When the head of the procession
reached the corner of Shipman and William
streets, they found Shipman crowded with
Irish Catholics, but the great body of the ho
cialies passed without any interruption, be
you nd an occasional shout ofdeiision.
As the end of the procession came in vievv.n
stone was hurled Irom the crowd onMie corner
ol Mnpmun street, wounding a member of ope
of the Associations. At the same time 0110 or
two shots were fired from the CntholicOiurch
occupying the space between Chipmiui and
High streets. This was the signal lor a cener
al riot, the entire procession breaking its line
and ruslit g upon those who had attacked them
who scattered in everydireclion. Pistola were
fired from Ihe procession into the crowd, and
some three nr four were severely wounded.
The attack from the church rendered that an
especial object of attention, nnd in less than
five minutes from the firs-, difficulty.the church
ws completely riddled, its d.ws and windows
broken,, its seats torn up, its altar dismantled
lit organ destroyed, nnd Ihe whole interior a
mass of ruin. A buildine on the eac side" oft
snipman street was also attacked, and th
windows broken in.
Dunns this time the excitement was most
intense, and the firing of pistols was initialed
wilh the sliouts of excited combatants. Hun
dreds of citizens rushed to the spot from every
direction, and ereat fears were felt that a se
rious loss of life weuld ensue. Alter much
difficulty, the Marshall of the procession suc
ceeded in calling into lino the members of the
various associntions. It is universally allowed
that great credit is due to Ihe Mftsshals and
Assistant Marshals for their exertions in en
deavoring to prevent nn attack upoq the
church, although thy were iceffeeiunl.
W ben the procession was aeain in line it
marched through High street to the corner of
Market street,, nnd down Market street to the
depot of the New Jersey Railroad. As intel
ligence of the riot spread in every direction,
thousands of our citizens came out from shops
and manufactories, and the sidewalks of Mas
ket street wore crowded as the procession
passed. At the depot nn immense crowd as
sembled, and some difficulty took place, al
though not of a serious character. The great
body of the procession left for Jersey City in
4 J o'clock train. It is to be regretted that
disturbance marred the festivities of the
day, but the universal testimony of those who
witnessed the affair imputo the blame wholly,
ihe Irub Catholics gathered at the corner of
William and Shipman streets. . !
A number are slightly injured by stones.and
Irishman 'named John McCiirty, received
limit in tne lower part of his
from which he will not probably recover ill.
Another Irishman was seriously but not con
sidered fatally injured. Some. two or three in
procession were badly wounded, and taken
home by their comrades.

Bloody Riot—Sevara! Men Wounded.
On Saturday eve iinr, about 6 o'clock, a
bloody not, in which near one bundled men
wereengaged.occured qbout three mil:s from the
city, on the Raleigh road, among the Irish la
borers employed in grading the Memphis and
Ohio Rail oad. From the best information we
could gather, 'the vcause of Ihe disturbance
was some trival dispute between a St. . Louis
faction and aMemphis faction in regard to pre
cedents in taking meals. They first fought
with sticks and what ever other weapons they
could lay their hands upon, and ihe Memphis
faction waa worsted. Some of them ciue to
city and procured fire arrns, ami returned
tlie scene of conflict. In the light whjcrj
ensued several of the cpmbitan s were se
verely wounded, but we bve heard of no
deaths. ... , ';,.
One man, a perman, who was not . engaged
the Culi t at ill, but who was sleeping un
der a tree when the firing comrpenced,wathnt
the head, and it is presumed he w ill die '
was impossible yesterday to obtain an acou:
idea ol Ihe number wounded.but we llnnk
i not far fromlfiftcen. . ' .
A little American bvy who was riding
peacefully along the road, was fired upon and.
by ball, and his horse was aevarelv
wounded. Wa think it probable that Ibis act
accidental. These are all the particulars
the affair that we are able to father-yester
