Crln consequence of a large accession to
oat subscription list, we have been compelled
to send to our brethren of the Pres, half a
thett this week.
' We had in'ended distributing a portion of
' the Gifts offered in our Enterprise on Wednes
day the 7th, and bad for the occasion, Two
"Gold Watches, Breast Pins.Chsin, Colt's Re
- volver, etc., amounting to two hundred dol
lars, but upon consultation with a number of
ticket holders, concluded to defer the Dis'.ri-
bution until Saturpat the 31st inst, at which
time all the Gifts will be Dittributed. We
we were induced to postpone the Distribution
mainly for the reason that, several of our-
friends who had taken a number of Tickets,
-failed from some cause to make a return, and
-we could not satisfactorily to all concerned
proceed. We wish all who feel an interest
in cheap reading, to make an effort in out be
half between this time and the 30 lb inst., and
11 who have tickets to sell will please report
-etonoe the names of holders, so that we may
commence tending them the paper. If the
One thousand Tickets are all sold by the 30th,
we witl put in addition to the Gifts already
-offered. TWENTY-FIVE GOLD RINGS, at
t2,00 each. We hope all old tubteribert,
every body else and "the rest of mankind,"
will now hand in their names and secure
cheap paper, if nothing more. Our friends
wbo have thus far aided usby their patronage
and influence, have our thanks, andwe hope
'they w ill still continue to assist us to increase
"the circulation of our paper and second our
-efforts to furnish a good and cheap paper.
ITjrWe are reminded by the return of Spring,
that the old established and reliable firm of
Cat at Matlack, No. 67 Peatlstreet, have re
ceived and opened and are still receiving tal
piles of seasonable andjfashionable Dry Goods,
to which they invite the attention of mer
chants visiting Cincinnati for the purpose of
.purchasing Spring snd Summer supplies. We
recommend them to the patronage of dealers
-in this section ef country.
HXWben you talk of notions, remember the
bouse of Taylor, French A; Wtnni, corner of
Main and Pearl streets, Cincinnati. Tbey
keep choice stock, selected with cere and
sell at the lowest rales. Give them a call by
elgmesns. Gentlemanly and kind in their de
portment, comet in their business transac
tions tbey deserve the confidence and patron
age of the public. When you wish to make
.purchases call at their establishment.
HyThe nominal editor of the Hamilton
'Telegraph, seems disposed to court a c-ntro--ersy
upon the subject of " consistent democ.
tcy." I The is anxious for s go ice of tilt and
tournament, let him "pitch in," we shall give
Jkita a turn, although to notice a man as a
democrat, who in his life, denounced the de
mocracy of Hon. John B. Wii.ur, will be like
casting "pearls before swine." If he desires
the lunar, we bope to be able to gratify bis
most extravagant expectations, but upon him
self and bis advisers, let the responsibility and
jTOur readf'rs who visit Cincinnati for the
purpose of ms king purchases, are invited to a
consultation of onr advertising columns, and
-those business men in Cincinnati who desire
to secure the trade of this section of country,
aie respectfully solicited to take into consid
eration the facilities offered in the "Democrat,"
as a means to place before the people their ar
ticles -of merchandize.
T"Noni! ark so Blind as those wno will
mot an." This is a true saying, and we
daily see examples of it. Obstinancy is vir
tue in the eyes of some men, and they love to
exercise it, no matter what may be the con
sequences. But it really does surprise us to
see men throwing their money away for "slop
work" Clothing, when such anestablishmen
as that ofSprague k Co., offers such splendid
inducements to them to do otherwise. We
know of no better Clothing warehouse than
Bprague 5r Cos, in the West, nor is it ex
celled by Eastern stores. Every article of
boys' or men's wear, may at all times be found
thereof -the newest styles, best make, snd at
Ihe. lowest prioes.
D3pring time is hers and oar, tidy house
drives will be rejeustlng old things snd ms
king then look new. Walls will be re-wbite-
washed, Carpets changed die. Speaking of
Carpets, reminds s that Hinrt Falls, No. 19
East Fourth street, Cincinnati, has just return
ed from the East, with an immense assortment,
, latest styles and best qualities, which will be
to i to merchants snd others at the !owet
rates. We advise our readers who wish i good

An Incident in the life of a Tract Distributor!
A Reverend friend of ours, who for s season
ministered to the lost sheep of Israel about
Cincinnati generally, and the wharf in par
ticular, relates the following incident which
occured on board a steamboat t
.In.company with a country friend who was
snxious to see the Steamboats, I went aboard
the . , and ss usual, commenced distrib
uting some religious Tracts. While thus en
gaged, s rough looking customer stepped up,
and asked me what I was doing. I replied,
I am distributing Tracts."
"Trackt," said he "what' track V
I answered, "iheyare religious pamphlets."
"Well now, Mister," said he, "I don't be
lieve in religion, and you shsnt give any more
of you r trad; on Ih is B oa t."
"What right have you to interrupt me in
the discharge of ray duty," I asked.
"Why," said he, "I have paid my passage
n this Boat, and you have not"
I replied, "I have permission from the Cap
tain to distribute Tracts on board this Boat,
and you have no tight to interfere with me."
Out conversation hsdlcollected a large crowd
who were eager ,lo see the denouememt.
Among them, I could only see one who ap
peared to be on my side. He was a tall raw-
boned, lathy-looking Yankee, who seemed to
be very much excited.
Now," said my bellacouse friend, "I'll
tell you what it is. I f you five another of
your trade to any of this crowd, I'll put you
overboard." "And I'll," said a little sallow
complexioned man, "I'll help you I"
Here was s dilemma. I must either retreat
and be insulted hereafter, by every drunken
rowdy, or I must discbarge my duty. I said
after a moment's reflection, "That is a two-
"No," said opponent No. 1, "It is a three
handed game, there is two of us, and ony one
of you, and I hope I may go to h 11, if
don't give you lo the fishes, if you give another
of your books to any one on board this boat."
I then determined I would proceed at alj
hazards. I laid my bundle of Tracts on s bar
rel of Pork, snd divesd myself of my large
over-coat. As I did this, some one said to the
little man,, "you had bettet let that fellow
alone, look at his broad shoulders, he'll
thrash the life out of you, if he gets hold of
The li'tle msn seemed to think there might
be some truth in the advice given, and he left
the ring, concluding that he would only tie a
spectator. I picked up my bundle of Tracts,
and turning to my adversary said :
"My friend, I am here to discharge a duty
imposed upon me by the Church, and mill
do it, at all hazards. I am a man of peac,
but if I am compelled to it, t will resist your
efforts to put me overboard. I shall not in
terfere with you, but if you lay the weight of
your hand upon me, I tell you now, in prei
ence of this crowd, it will be the htt time you
will ever interfere with a Tract Distributer."
My vankee friend, unable to contain him
self, screamed at the top of his voice, "Go it I
Canting, veou've cot the anannk !" I
I now felt that there was one present who
would render me assistance if needed. I
commenced, distributing my Tracts, keeping
my eye upon my man, he following me and
swearing at a furious rate. I kept on, until I
had given a Tract to every man, woman and
child who would receive one. Then turning
to the man I said :
"I have now discharged my duty, and be
fore I lesve, 1 wsnt lo tell you what I think
of you. You have abused and insulted me
without cause. You even threatened my life
you thought to frighten me you were mis
taken in your man. You swore you would
put me overboard you did not attempt it
you were afraid. You are a coward! You
swore you would throw me to the fishes you
did not do it vou tied, and now you stand
convicted, before this crowd, who witnessed
your insulting conduct, as a liar and t coward,
"Put him threu ."' "Go it strong !" otied
my yankee friend, in a phrenzy of delight.
"Now, sir," I continued, "I am going to
punish you for your meanness," and selecting
from my bundle, "The Swearer's Prayer," I
aaid to him, "Now you must get up on that
box and read this Tract to the crowd 1"
uy this ume "the tables were turned" in
my favor, and my yankee friend was in a per
fect ecstacy, and yelled at the highest pitch,
Go it Captingi" "Put him thrue I" You've
got the speunk !"
His air of boldness and audacity had by
this time forsaken bim, and he cast a pleading
look towards me, ss much ss to say, let us
drop the matter t But I had resolved to in
flicts punishment on him that he should not
soon forget. I again reiterated the command
to mount the box and commence his penance,
He tried to make a show of courage, and said,
but in tathet a subdued tone, .
"I toon' t do U!"
I said to bim, "I told you I would distribute
my Tracts, and I have kept my word. Now,
1 tell you plainly, if you don't mount thatbox
and read this Tract, I will thrash the deck of
the boat with you I Step up to the box-
move walk !"
"Jerewsalem I" "Put him threu," said
My man started for the box amid the laugh
ter of the crowd.
"Now," said I, "get tip," but with the
word, h cleared the box at a bound, and start
ed for the shore at a neck-break speed. One
universal yell saluted his eara as he bounded
away.and I was left to goon my way in peace.
Thus ends one of the incidents in the life of s
ItTDagguerreotypes sre the most faithful of
all Likenesses. They sre reflected ss it were
by s concave mirror. Ball No.10 Fifth-street
affords an illustration of the fact. Parents who
desire faithful Pictures of their children win
find Bsll ready to perform the wotk ia superi
O Humbugs sre frequently tuecersful
through the capriciousness of people, but do
not last. Ball, No 28 Fourth-street, is oppos
ed to everything ef the kind. He pretends to
potbing that he does not sccemplish in every
particular. His Pictures will stand the test of
examinsUon and time. They are finished with
care, and are cbcsp at bis prices. , ,
IXAs the time it approaching whea Cor
poration officers are to be chosen by the good
people of Eaton, it might oe well enough to
look around for a suitable persoa to fill the
important office of Mayor, and for that highly
responsible and honorable peaitioa,we hsvejiu
our mind's eye, s gentleman admirably sdapt-
ed by nature, education and habits. He is
generally known by the tobriquet of "Black
Hawk," and promises if e let ted,' smorig other
things to have no freezing weather in the
spring when it should be warm no long con
tinued dry hot summers no drinking of Bad
Whitky no muddy streets no bad pavements
no gambling no swearing no sabbath
breaking no bad money in circulation among
tiis constituents, but gold or silver, or their
true representative the old Maids shall all
have husbands the old Bachelors wives the
girls beaus he willmary all the widowsjath
er all the children feed all the hungry en
force all the good laws, snd various other good
and useful acts will be performed, "too tedi
ous to enumerate." Under existing circum
stances, and in consideration of such invalu
able services we, think "Black Hawk," should
receive the unamimous support ef the people
of Eaton. What think yout "Don't all
speak at once 1" ,
ITThe Methodist Chnrcb in various placet,
east, west, north snd south, has been visited
by revivals, and large numbers sdded to the
list of the faithful. Here in Eaton, the Spirit
breathes not upon the valley of dry hone .'
What the obstructing cause, is known only to
Him who whispers in the breeze, speaks in
the gale, commands in the storm snd thunders
in the Tempest. Perhaps there sre too many
like Achan in the camp. All vill remember
the history of his trsnsgresssion snd the con
sequences, those who do not, msy refresh
memory by referring to the seventh chapter of
the Book- of Joshua. We don't mean that any
are guilty of the same kind of unfaithfulness,
but there is a cause, ami perhaps it is to be
found where leaat expected.
tTWe were forcibly struck by a remark we
heard the other day. A man observed, Le
loved "a good hater." Often in theevervary
ing scenes of life, have come to mind the
words of Barrt Cornwall, and in their full
est, deepest, broadest bitterest sense, in what
heart have they not found a response, .
"My revenge was born in langhter,
As our highest delights oft blush beneath a flood
But 'twill endure. Like oaks which born in May
seem elender and weak,
But having a aooreof years on their heads grow
stern and rugged.
So doth my revenge. Naught shall impoverish It.
The bounteoos years shall lend their seaaona to
And lest its roots should e're foisake the ground.
I'll water them well with blood !"

It is related of old Bullion that be was con
siderably joyed when he heard that President
Pierce had vetoed the Collins Bill. "Give the
President my respects, sir," said he ,lo a mu
tual friend: "be did mbt, sir, and if I was
President I would keep a pile of blank vetoes
at hand ready to stop the acts of this d d ras
cally Congress." The veto, however, did not
save the treasury from the rich spoil, The
item was stuck into the General Appropriation
Bill, and was then carried through. Had the
President vetoed even that he would have done
an act of sound Justice for the country.

The Collins Line Appropriation—Corruption
The New York Tribune, in the course of s
strong article' denouncing the passage, by
Congress, of a law giving to the Collins Line
an immense homu from the publio treasury,
forcibly says :
"Now, if Congress hsd thrown sway this
vast sum in a freak of generosity or folly we
might bsve regretted ihe waste of money, but
we should not be called to deplore a still
more grave calamity. The evil ia this case is,
that Congress was not deluded--it was cor
rupted. Where the money came from we do
not legally know-we can only give a Yan
kee guess but that money passed this bill-
money cot merely expended on borers and
wheedlers, and the usual oyster-cellar appli
ances of lobby legislstion but money count
ed down into the palms of members of Con
gress themselves this is as clear as the noon
day sun. Members who but s few months
sgo were breathing out threatenings and
slaughter against the Collins Job,- have now
spoken, csnvsssed and voted for the still more
extravagant provisions of the bill of this ses
sion. . , e e
"It gives us no nlessure to sneak of these
things. We would gladly bury them in obliv
ion, but for the certainty that the fearful pre
cedent established in this case will work im
measurable demoralization in the national
councils; and woe to the American people.
w nen memoers 01 congress are bought and
sold like horses st Tattersal's. or second-hand
lurniture in Cha'.ham-stieet. the malaria of
corruption will soon icfect the whole atmoi
phere or the metropolis; speculators vill lay
their plans for getting millions out of the
treasury, snd will coollv calculate the amount
requisite to buy their bill through the two
Houses. Then anv affectation of virtue on
the part of members whose votes sre to be hod
will only necesaiste sn addition to the scire
gate to be stolen, snd no member can vote
tor even a good measure, by which Individu
a Is are to be benefitted, without subjecting
himself to Some taint or the universal rotten

In the meantime, the news of the outrage
had unread through the hotel end in the neigh

seemed to take a deep interest in the matter,

have her released, and in s short time she was
again placed in her apartment at the City Ho

cause no arrests were made; why, we cannot
immune. The crowd then dispersed.
No blame is attached to the keepers of the
hotel, who did all in their power to have mat

. Cincinnati inquirer,
The Case of Dr. Beale in Philadelphia.
Some eminent jurists in Pennsylvania, em
bracing Chief Justice Lewis, Judge Black and
Judge Woodward, have given written opinions
to the Governor of Pennsylvania, founded upon
the testimony, favorab le to a pardon of Dr,
Beale, the Philadelphia dentist who was
convicted of outrage unou the penow of
Miss Mudge, while the latter was under the
influence of chloroform. Judge Black, in giv
ing his opinion, says :
"But is it n it clesr that the conviction is an
error? An honest error of course, but still an
error. Think, for a moment. This man is
convicted of an infamous and moat atrociou
crime, alleged to have been committed under
circumstances which make it in the highest
degree improbable. It becomes still more
difhcult to believe the accusation, when we
reflect on the conduct of both parties before
and immediately ntlerward. tlow is Una over
come ? All the improbabilities of the case
might be met by the clear, direct lentimony of
a w tness who knowt (he fact. But no sue
evidence was produced. The prosecution
colled a woman, who, at the timo of Ihe oc
currence to which she testifies, could nou no
more of what wa eomg on than if the had 6 -en
at the Antipode. There is no evidence
atall, unless we take that of a woman wl:
swears to very little, and whose faculties of
mind and body were totally suspended, when
she supposes she saw or perceived the Utile
