JET We have issued our paper one day earl i

which was to give all hands a chance to at
tend the show !
CThe articles of our friend "J. H. G. S.'
will appear in our next'. Crowded out una
-voidably, this week. The two numbers will
be published in one paper.

articles, special notices, te., to all of which
we invite the especial attention of all our
ICTln footing up wc discover some Sixty
dollars out upon our Gift enterprise. Of
course we connot pay up unless those who
old Tickets square up. We will wo it a week
or two, and then if the money is not forth-
coming we will publish a list of the names of
those who are delinquent and the amounts
due. Self-preservation compels us to pursue
this course, much against our desire. We do
hope those interested wiil take notice and act

have them I If you intend to stand by us in
the advocacy of democratic men and measures,
against every and all opposition come up now
to the work ! This is no time there is no
time for ifs and andt, your duty is before you
plain as the noonday sun, and if you do not
discharge that duty,can you, dare you censure
your neighbor for following your example?
This is the time for plain talk, and immediate,
energetic action ! Make up your minds as to
what course you intend to pursue, and having
counted the cost and consequences, follow in
that course at all hazards. If you intend to
sustain us in the advocacy of democratic men
and measures do so at once and let us see your
faith by your uw if you don't say so, and
let us know upon what we have to depend.
JTwe have often felt indignant at the
course pursued by some persons in relclion to
newspaper paragraphs, and yet, we confess,
our ire partook more of a "serio-comico"
character than otherwise. Many sensitive
folks imagine that, every little article which
happens to strike any of their peculiarities,
was written expressly for their benefit, and
straightway, in high dudgeon, they repair to
the sanctum, and expose to the editor, and
perhaps a dozen others, a fault of which they
were not suspected, and give evidence that a
tender spot was touched.
Others wreak their vengeance upon the
poordei'l of the tripod, by discontinuing the
paper, vainly supposing that, as a consequence
upon the withdrawal of their patronage the
paper must slop .'the edilpr, his wife and
babiej starve, etc. Others fancy Hint, by
threats of personal violence, the knight of the
quill may be intimidated, forgetful that he
who has had daily dealings with the devil for
years, has no fears in this life, nor opprehen
aions for that which is to come.
We would here give a little counsel to our
Traders. If you ever see an article in the
Democrat," thai strikes you hard, (excepts
dun,) remember, except a call for money,
pass it by, and say it don't mean me that
shoe was made for somebody else, and 111
not pinch my corns wearing it! We wouldn't
oh, no, we wouldn't write an article to hurt
the sensitive feelings of any of our dear read
er, for all the world and something else into
the bargain ! Don't forget now to make the
proper applicalion of the hints thrown out in
this article, for this lime wc mean all of you
every one and the rest of mankind.

Adventures of an Orphan.
A tluilling title by Emesson Bennett.is now
in Press at the Publishing House or T.B. Pe
terson, 102 Chestnut street.Philadelphia. A
copy has been placed upon our table in ad
vance of publication, and from a cursory
glance at its pages, we are satisfied that "El.
"NNoRii-,Wjiibe read with thrilling in
terest by every lover of Romance. It is a pro
duction which will add new lustre to the
proud reputation of its popular author. The
name of Emcrson Bennett, is sufficient to give
t "a run," and emanating from Peterson's
publishing House, from whence never issued
a poor work, will give it an almost unbound
ed popularity, outside its own intrinsic merits.
We copy from a notice of the Bcok the fol
lowing : "It is a fiction founded on Tacts,
gathered from actual observation of human
misery, by the Autlvr himself, and gleaned
from the records ofa distinguished Philanthro
pist. It is a picture of light and shade, pre
sentingthe widestand most striking contrasts.
Its shadows are as dark as vice and crime can
make them, while its lights are the brilliant
gleams of purity.t.utb, and love. It is a work
to command'the attention of all noble hearts
of every Clergyman, Jurist, and Legislator
n the land and especiallyVoes it comn.end
itself to every Chrirtian. While it boldly
tears the mask from the face of canting hy
pocrisy, it upholds, in theslrongest language,
the pure and simple religion of Jesus Christ.
Mothers will read it, and will weep over the
wrongs end .sufferings of the sweet liltlf "Or
phan" the child of innocence and purily
who, amid all her trials and tribulations, nev
er forgets to appeal, with the trusting failh'of
tender years, to her Heavenly Father im
ploring protection and deliverance, patience,
resignation. Whether among friends or ene
mies whether surrounded by beauty, purity
and goodness, in the bright abode of luxury
or vice, crime, misery and pestilence, in the
dark haunts of the most degraded-whether
in the hands of pure and loving hea:ts, or in
the grasp of thieves, robbers, and murderers
on the downy bed of wealth, or the filthy
pallet of the gloomy prisonin all places and
all situations, she is ever the same sweet,
gentle, affectionate prayerful child. The
sceneofthis truly great work lies in the very
heart of Philadelphia; and the chnracters, so
skillfully portrayed by the pen of a master,
are still living in our midsl. And we would
add that, beside the great moral beauties enu
merated, the story is characterized by purity
of style, intricacy of plot,, and individuality
of character, combined with incidents of so
thrilling and stdriling a nature, as to make the
heart bound and the blood leap. It should be
in the hands of ererj lover of literature. Ev
ery page glows with the beauty, strength and
power of genius; atid-every passion of the hu
man heart, is depicted with a fidelity to life

U"Un lhursdaylast, at a meeting of the
Stockholders of the Preble county Branch

that the interests of Depositors and Stockhold

Preble County Agricultural Fair.

upon our Farmers, Mechanics, and everybody
else, to make early preparations to exhibit

there be a general exhibition of the Products
of Preble county, and let every one feel that

his duty. Upon the officers of the Society

be discharged, and which consists in part,
in making early preparatory arrangements, so
that persons at a distance may put their af
fairs in suitable order to enable them to at

and Mechanics ample lime to make all nec
essary orr-ngemenls to devote two or three
days to the cause of the people. We believe
the efficient officers of the Society will at once
perceive the utility of such a proeeedure and
with their characteristic promptness proceed
to discharge their whole duty in the premises.

We endeavor to find something good in every

The Virginia Diamond. The Spanish Outrages upon our Fall.
The Washington laieaof' April 58 "Isa an
excellent article en tha reeent Spanish out ;
rages upon our flag, iia which it lakea high . 4
grounds. Those who think that the Pff'i-,,,0,
dent has been at fault in not using more " Tiov
lent measures for redress, can read with profit :
lire following extract from the tnion's ar-'
"What power, then, could the President
legitimately exercise by way of redress I If,
he had ordered the Gulf Squadron to proceed
to Havana and demand immediate reparation '
of the Captain General of Cuba, and, npon
his refusal, to blockade Ihe ports of lha is
land, or to bombard its towns, these would
have been unequivical acts of war. But the
President has no power to make war. When
an injury calls for redress he is bound lode- -maud
lepsration, and if it is refused, and re
dres is only alia triable bya res" Tt to force.he "
must have the authority of Congress to pro
ceed, unless the offeuding paityu of that law
less or piratical character uresponsible to any
government capable of making reparation, "
which makes his punisment an exception to
civil med rules of proceeding.-
"If, upon the refusal of the Captain Gen
eral to m ike immediate reparation, the Pres
ident hod ordered the commander or ihe
squadron lo look up the offending Spanish
Irigme, and to capture or sink her, this would
have been to make a reprisal. But the con
stiiulion has not conferred upon the Presi
dent the auth- rny either to declare war or to
iiiiikv reprisals. l the necessary power had
existed, the outrages would have justified a
resort to one or the other mode of redress.ond
we have good reason believe that the Pres.
leent was only restrained from adopting lha
one or Ihe other mode from the conviction
tha. hu could only do so at the expense of the
Unstitu'ion. it is apparent, then, that uo
der his constitutional powers it was not com
peter.t for the Executive lo adopt those sum
mary and effective measures for redress which
the outraged sense of the American people
seemed so clearly to demand. If he had been
actuated in his policy by Ihose ambitious or
selfish considerations which some of his en
emies have to unscrupulously attributed lo
him, he saw such manifestations of popular
indignaliou against the aggressors that might
well have lempted a lesj discreet and con
scientious 1'iesident lo overstep the bounds
fixed by the Constitution to his powers.-
ithout pretending to indicate, or even to
know, what policy the president has adopted
to oblam ample reparation fur these outrages,
we venture confidentially to affirm that the
sequel will prove that he has discharged his
whole duty, ond, that, if full rediess is not
s eedi.y obtained, tha country will sllach to
him no responsibility for want of promptness
or energy m the exercise of all the powers
belonging to him. When Congress again as
sembks, if it shall appear that the President
bus exhausted all his legitimate resources iu
ruitlcss efforts to obtain satisfactory repsra
ion from Spain, it will devolve upon that
body to decide whether other and more effec.
live measures shall be prosecuted. While
the Lxecutive will continue seduously to es
chew rashness or precipitancy in his counsels,
he will show neither lack of jealousy ss to
our national honor nor want of ,,,..mt.,' ....

A Man Shot in his own House.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 28.
evening a tragic event, uncommon for
this meridian, occurred in this Ti,
fads are briefly these: About seven o'clock
o young man named Williard Clark called at
wmj- resiuence oi Mr. John Bogart, No. 18
W est Chapel street, and entered a room in
which the family were sinimr tmti,r
Mr. and Mrs. Riclnrd Wight, son-in-law and
daughter of Mr. Bogart. Clark passed (be
usual compliments of the eveningsnd trade a
few remarks. Mr. and Mrs. vVh-ht nul
into the parlor to get some articles of apparel,
as they were going out to a neighboiing house.
Chirk followed, nnd, passing near Mr.Wight,
plnced a loaded pistol just back of his right
ear and fired. Tie wife screamed, and Mr.
Bogart entered the room as Mr. W. fell sensi
less upon the floor. Clork left the house and
proceeded directly to his store, corner of
George on 1 L ick street, whither officer Ue
Dunning went end arrested him. The officer
asked him what he had bem doing, to which
Clark replied lie did not ki.ow. Dunning
told bun he must go with him. I e was an
swered, "Ceitainly, I suppose I must;" and
Clark look some money from his pocket ami
handed it to a person, at the same lime giving
directions how to di pes of it. Dunning and
Clark thin proceeded toward the jail. Oo
the way the "risoner was asked if the set
was premeditated, to which he leplied: "No,
not exactly premedituled, but 1 thought I
might hnve some trouble with him, and
thought I would be prepared." Several phy
steians were in immediate attendance upon
vight, and investigation proved that the ball
had penetrated the head within an inch o the
opposiie s.de, and it could not be" extracted.
He is still nlivi-, but it is supposed be cannot
long survive. Thejenhu y of Clark, who
had paid some atttn i n to Mrs. Wight pre
vious to her
marrriage, a weeks since, is
siid to have been ihe ptobable causa of the
Execution of the Murderers of Dunbar in Fort
The Fori Wayne (Ind.) Sentinel of the JJlh
of April hs the following:
"The Execution or Maddm axd Keeks.--Yesterday
was the day appointed for the
execution of these wretched men, convicted
of the murder of Mr. Dunbar. At an early
hour large crowds of persons began to flock
iu'from the country, and before the hour ap
pointed for the execution, the jail was sum
rounded by a multitude of anxioua sptotslors
eager to gets glimpse of the swful tragedy
about to be enacted. Apprehensions having
been entertained that Some disturbance might
occur and an attempt be made to tear down;th
high boaid fence around the jail yard, where
the scaffold was erected, the Mad Anthony
Guards and a large police force were at tinned
around the place to keep Ihe crowd back,
For the credit of our people we are gratified
to be able to a'.ate that no difficulty arose, and .
that the whole sssemblage behaved in ao ei
tremely orderly ana decorous manner.
"Several ministers had been with the un
happy men from an early hour in Ihe morning-.
administering to them the consolations of re
ligion, and joining with them in fervent ap.
peals to the Almighty. The religious services
were all performed in the prison. When the
fatal hour arrived, the prisoners had their
arms pinioned, and, after bidding an affection
ate farewell lo their companion in guilt and
suffering, Roraine, they proceeded to the
scaffold. Madden was the first to sscend.
which he did with a calm, firm demeanor.
displaying the utmost fortitude, and evincinr.
by his whole deportment, that be had made
his peace, and was prepared to meet bis fate.
Keefer followed. He, too, had, for a few
days previous, shown a better atate of feeling
and expressed a strong hope of salvation) but
he was terribly affected the hardihood he
had previously shown had deserted him, and
he was entirely prostrated. They both ap
peared engaged in private prayer until the
necessary arrangements were oompleted, and
the drop fell. Keefer showed some signa af
life, by a convulsive movement of the shoul
ders and chest for fire or six minutes, whan
his sufferings cejsed. Madden' s rope unfor
tunately broke, and be fell to the around. He
was speedily raised to bis feet, assailed up
the ladder, the rone again adjusted, and ha .
joined bis companion. His sufferings were
brief, apparently not mote than, one or two.
minutes.'' " v ' c..t j! . .
