Dituns and Guocemks. Wo invito the
attention of our friends to K. Stkiniiauoii
f.u's advertisement. Mr. S. is well and
favorably known to tho people of this county,
and we are safe in saying that tho liberal
patronago heretofore extended to him by
our dealers and others will not he diminished.

conferred upon the Probate Court of this
We are not yet advised of tho provisions of
tho law, but understand the old law is sub
stantially re-enacted. Tho compensation of
tho Probate Judge is not to exceed one
hundred dollars per year. The county will
save money by this enactment.
"Sic Semper Tvran.ms." Tho tele
graph reports that when the asasin of;
President Lincoln leaped on the stage after
committing tho murder, he brandished a
dagger and exclaimed "Sic Semper Tyran
iris." "So may it ever be with tyrants."
The arms of tho Stato of Virginia is a
man with one foot planted on a dead body,
and brandishing a dagger in his hand. The
motto of the State is " Sicxempcr tyrannis."
AroLEOETic On tho first page of to
day's paper is an article or two on the late
President which would not appear in these
columns had we known of his death before
the outside of tho paper was printed. We
had no sympathy with Mr. Lincoln while
Jiving, nor with the ptinuiplcs of his party,
but wo would not reproach tho dead. Let
the grave cover his faults and let charity
withhold criticism from ho who eau no
longer cxtonuato for himself.
Oil. Oil hasbuen struck on Major Sait's
farm, near Millwood, in Knox county, at
tho depth of ;'iuO feet.
The company boring on Mr. Lino's place,
three miles south of Millorsburg, have
reached 11 depth of 300 feet, and met with
very favorable indications.
The Holmes county Oil and Mineral Com
pany havo their engine and all other mate

Hn-LsnoRO Gazette. Tho Hillsboro
(Ohio) Gazette refused to support tho nom
inee of tho Chicago Convention last fall.
Comparing tho spring election with that of
last fall, tho Democrats have lost about 70
votes in the township where the Gazette
is located. This tho Gazette attributes to
tho demoralization resulting to the Demo
cratic party from tho action of the Chicago
Convention. The April elections through
out this Stato generally resulted favorable
to tho Democracy. It is exceedingly strange
that tho Democracy of Hillsboro should
to tho exclusion of most other localities
suffer all the demoralization engendered by
the Chicago Convention. It was wicked
verily it was cruel in tho Chicago Conven
tion to singlo out Hillsboro and make such
a dastardly drive at it. Might it not, how
over, bo tho contentious and suicial courso
pursued by tho Gazette that causes tho De
mocracy of that region to lose ground ?

been duly qualified and entered upon tho

It. T. Critciifield, Ksq., has been select

days he bid fair to livo many year.?. hen
about tho ago of majority ho learned the
Wll.IUIIUllUIIUI.ll.IUpV.UWJ .v. .. O
trade of blacksmithing, and. continued to
work at it in Millorsburg until he was about
30 years of age, when of his own inclination
ho commenced tho htudy of the law, was ad
mitted to tho bar, and for many years prac
tised in this and neighboring counties and
in various courts of the Stato and United
States. Ho was not a fluent speaker but
what he lacked in expression was made up
in thought. Ho became a clear, forcible,
logical lawyer, and master of his profession.
To his vigorous thought and safe conclusions
ho added an almost irrcsistable influence,
which many who practised with him will
recollect. There was but little verbiago in
his expressions, and his ideas when expi esscd
upon a legal or political subject were con
vincing, new and entertaining. In private
conversation but few wero so impressive and
influential. His language was pure, well
selected and carefully expressed. Ho ac
quired a general knowledge of most branches
of learning, though but little favored with
the opportunities of education. He was a
clear and vigorous writer, but seldom re
writing or changing his productions. No
man that wo havo over known had truer or
warmer friends, or a better capacity to mako
and hold friends. His ii lends of 20 years
ago are the same to-day. Generosity was .1
prominant trait in his character. He was
liberal and magnanimous to a fault. He
was norcr guilty of churlishness or meanness.
Ho was a man, intelligent, generous, with
great fn mness of character, and true dignity.
When the country demanded men to resent
tho insults repeatedly given to our country
by Mexico ho raised a company in a few
days, marched and fought with our army to
the City of Mexico and returned home, but
diseased with that fatal diarrhoea which has
carried off so many of our soldiers in that
war, and from which ho suffered ever since
and which was one of the causes of his death,
lie was breveted Major for bravery in battle
whilo in Mexico. Soon after returning home
he was nominated for a seat in Congress and
was elected by a largo majority. He took
his seat in tho Congro.-s which assembled in
December, 1S19, and served two years ; was
renominated and defeated in 1800. While in
Congress ho cast his votes uniformly with
tho Democratic party, of which he had been
a member all his life. He voted for the
compromise measures of 1S50, and it was
owing to the short-sightedness of hisconstit
uents as to the beneficial effects of the com
promise nieasuresto preserve and perpetuate
the Union, that he was defeated in 1850.
In politics he was a firm uuwavciing advocate
of the principles of Democracy, national and
comprehensive in his views, and deprecating
and detesting sectional agitation and tho
principles tho sectional Republican party
advocated. He lived toseethc peopleregret
their action on the coin promise measures of
18."i0. Soon afti'rhisretiracy from Congress,
he resumed to a partial extent the practice
of his profession. He acquired a large
propei ty, and building himself a suitable
residence about two miles south ul' this place
removed to it, gave up his practice to the
younger members of the bar and lived in
comparative quiet until his death. During
the Presidency of Franklin Pierce his
friends from various parts of the country
sought, without his knowledge, his appoint
ment of Judge of Washington Territory.
He was appointed by thePiesidentandconi
missinncd but declined to accept. Ho was
also ftequcutly mentioned, by those who
knew his qualifications, for the position of
Judge of the Supremo Court of Ohio, to
which ho would have done honor, but ho
never became an aspirant, and evidently
sought no office. The lust few years of his
life have been spent on his farm, and with
but little participation in public affairs.
Human nature is attended with iui perfec
tions, and he doubtless was not free from the
common lot, but his, whatever they may
have been, wero not of public detriment,
they were of personal concern.
No liian perhaps with so good capacity
done so little injury to community. That
he was honest, honorable and fair in his
dealings courteous in his intercourse with
society, from principle avoiding other peo
ple's concerns, nnd rcsti'ictiug himself to
his own, will be readily admitted by all.
And that during his life he has given an ex
ample of what study, energy and will may
do under adverso circumstances, will be felt
fur years to come. Ho has been taken to
his rest with tho respect of all, tho affection
of his intimato friends, and the enduring re
mcmbranco of tho community about his
The Jollification. At an early hour
on Friday evening a largo crowd of men and
women assembled in this placo to rcjoico over
the prospect for tho black cloud of war to
pass away and the angel of pcaco to return
to this stricken land. At candle-lighting,
all tho bells in town clashed their clangor on
tho air, tho Democratic Band poured forth
its merry music and tho town was beautifully
illuminated. Then followed a groat display
offircworks which at ten o'clock was brought
to a closo by tho building of a hugo bonfire

Tho whole performance was characterized
with propriety and good order. Never havo

Peace promised to return to this people,
who havo for four years been weary and
heavy laden with the afflictive bereavements
of war, thinned by remorseless conscriptions
and weighed down by oxhorbitint taxation.
God speed the day when smiling Peace will
dispel tho heavy gloom that hangs over us,
when war and its desolations will ceaso, when
our soldiers will lay down the instruments

It was imprudent electioneering for the
Democratic nomination for the Presidency
in 1800 that led to tho rupture in tho party
at the Charleston Convention and the defeat
of the party at the election, and resulted in
the destruction of the country through the
success ot the abolitionists.
This county, like all other Democratic
counties, has, men who are very efficient in

the Democracy and the defeat of the aboli-
tionists, denouncing them as a dishonest,
"clique" who wanted to rule every person,
and when a suitable opportunity presented
itself he betrayed the party and sold himself
to the enemy. Hamilton J. Conner made
a bushes of carrying on a war of words'100
and personal abuse against those who were
valliantly laboring to overthrowtho abolition
party, and when he failed to accomplish his!
selfish ends by this means he furnished aid'
and comfort to the enemy, and figured Man

and to denounce them as a "clique" who
wii-hed to rule and destroy. So with John
andGonntKY Corbus. They wero eternally
at the parot cry of "cliquc,"and denouncing
every Democrat for wanting to control the
party who chose to differ with them. They
and Ankeny aro now the leaders of the
abolition party of the county.
Every Democrat has tho right, and it is
quite proper that he should exercise it, of
canvassing tho merits of candidates andean,
didly, prudently and honestly urging the
nomination of his favorites; but when men
condescend todeuouncc asa "corruptclique"
thoso who freely give of their money and
spend weurly days and sleepless nights to
promote the success of the Democratic party
and secure tho public good, they are doing
that which they have no right to do, and
doing it, too, with wicked motives? It must
be expected that tho men who work most
for the overthrow of the abolition party will
feel some interest in the nomination of suit
able men fur office, nor are they to he blamed
for prudently urging the nomination of those
whom they can defend from the attacks of
the enemy, and who they believo will be a
benefit to the party after elected.
In this campaign for nominations, do

ful of regard for brother Democrats as to

Holmes county Republican has ceased to
oxist. It has been in a sickly condition for
some time. The offico has been sold to a
gentleman in New Castle, Pennsylvania,
and taken away.
Under the management of Mr. GRIFFITH
no other fate could bo reasonably expected
for the paper. It was devoted to dispar
agement of tho town and county, to the
destruction of the business interests of our
people, to slander and falsehood, to tho in
citement of contention and strife among
neighbors, and to tho instigation of mobs
and violence upon our peaceful citizens.
Its untruthful statements in regard to tho
conduct of Democrats has moro than once
very nearly caused bloody work on our
streets, and produced violenco of a lamen
table character- . Our interference on two
occasions saved tho offico from being de
stroyed by thoso who wero provoked be
yond endurance by its moanness.
Wo would bo glad for tho opposition in
this county to havo an honorablo paper it
would promoto tho public interest; but wo
havo no regrets that Mr. GRIFFITH has
been compelled to suspend.
Until they secure a paper of their own,
they can havo the uso of our columns for
such notices as they may desiro published.
Wo will deal with them in no unkind spirit,
but extend such courtesies as they may rea
sonably ask for.
Abolition Venom. Rev. M. L. Ander
son, pastor of tho Presbyterian Church,
publicly said that every man found in arms
againEt the government should be hung up
without judge or jury.
On tho same day John Cary, E?qM
chanced to be in Akron on business, and
when about to leavo ho was noticed to buy
a ticket for MHlersburg, which was the sig
nal for a large mob to attack him with all
manner of abuse, threats, &c.
There is reason to fear tbat the bollisb
spirit which is infused into the abolition
party will yet lead to indisori ruinate slaughter
throughout tho country. Such would bo a
sorry time, but they will discover beforo
they get through with it that ono inau's

its own act of expectation, and the belief
that it will be answered, and that the effect
of exertion, part physical and part mental,
is to bring a sense of relief after the exertion
has subsided. They preach the doctrine
not because of its intretisic merit but to
arouse a mysterious belief of special good,
and by pleaching and praying together they
humbug the people with disappointed ex
pectations with pretences of ultimate good
and excuses that God act in a mysterious
way. This theory of evil has originated
sineo the war commenced. A large ma
jority of ministers have bocomo common
falsifiers, and feed themselves by the net
proceeds of the public charity of which the
public are defrauded. God acts by general
laws and there is not the slightest evidence
that He has changed His mode of operating
at the request of the gentlemen who cut
fastastic tricks in God's name. Since the
war commenced there is not tho slightest
reason to believe that any preacher has ben
efitted tho Union cause except with musket
in hand. The war has been carried on by
men and arms, not prayers. But praying
and preaching has produced one result, and
that is tho wide spread contempt and detes
tation with which the public regards these
i farcical actors in the pulpit. Demoralized
uy pmciicu ui uypuurisy, agitators, nieuuiers
brutalized by their wishes and mii-coii-ception

They pray for long life for the President

tell the people they pray advisedly and God
will answer the only answer is from the war
department of misfortune. Of all tho mis
fortunes with which a country may be tried,
thcro is nono greater than tho praying and
preaching of an ignorant bigoted, sin-besot
ted, blood-stained damnable ministry. The
result is certain, Christianity has lost ad
herents and character, the church has be
como a meeting placo for fanatics and hypo
crits, society repelled from good motivos,
and outragos fathered by sanctified scoun
drcls. Tho sooner thoso gentlemen reflect
upon empty stomachs, tho more clearly will
they see the deformity of religion when in
tho embrace of sin.

Battle of Shoe-Henlinden.
In MlHcrsbtirg, some years ago,
All bootlessdld tho unshndden go,
And dark and dreary was the flow,
Of prices rising rapidly.
But this town saw another sight,
When II euro came to s'ct things right,
With flaming posters bring to light,
Tho people's dreadful misery.
By printer's ink and shoes well-made,
Each flaming bill a battle-blade,
A furious charge nt onco he made,
Upon tho high priced "chivalry,"
Then were those shops' foundattonsrlven,
Who, much to greed had long been given,
Then rushed the crowd to Hcbron'6 haven
And bought tholr chocs right merrily.
The combat deepens on yo knaves,
Whoso prices high havomadoyour graves.

And charge tho high priced chivalry.

From the Itov. Levi G. Beck, Pastor of the Bap

North Baptist Church, Philadelphia.
I have known Hoofland's German Bitters fa
vorably for a number of years. I have used
them In my own family, and have been ronien.
sed with their effects that I was Induced tn riv.
om mend them to many others, and know lhat
they have operated in a strlklnglv beneficial
manner. I take great pleasure In thus publicly
proclaiming this lact, nnd calling the attention
of those afflicted with the diseases for which
they are recommended to these Bitters, know
ing from experience that my recommendation
will bo sustained. I do this more cheerfully as
iloolland's Bitters is intended to benefit the af
flicted, and is "not a rum drink."
Yours truly, LEVI J. BECK.

that he may thus contribute to the benefit
. I do this the moro readily in regard to Hoof
land's German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C.
Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced
against them for many years, under the im
pression that they were chiefly an alcoholic
mixture. I am indebted to my friend. Robert

the use of them. J. 2fE WTON BROWX,

that, for general debility of the system and es

but usually, I doubt not, it will be veiy benefi
