LOUISVILLE AND SANDUSKY
Meeting at Eaton.
On a call of the President of
the, above R. R. Co., a large and
very enthusiastic meeting of the
citizens of Eaton and vicinity
met at the Court House, on the
evening of the 15th of Feb. And
on motion of T. J. Larsh, Gen
Hendricks was chosen Chairman;
and on motion of J. B. Stephens,
J. M. Brown was appointed Sec
The meeting being called to
order, the Chairman stated that
the object of the meeting was to
farther the interest of the said
road, and to get an expression of
the citizens in regard to the prop
er heading for the stock ' books
J. H. FOos was called on and
ii spoke at length on the prospect
of the early completion of the
road; he was of the opinion that
if the sum of (300,000 in addition
to the old stock, (which is esti
mated to be -worth the sum of
250,000) could be raised, that
that amouut would do the grad
ing and bridging, and thus se
cure the road beyond a doubt.
The Stock Books are headed
on condition, that if the amount
of 300,000 is not subscribed,
then in that case the subscrip
tion is not binding on the sub
scribers; but should that snm be
raised, then said subscription is
absolute and collectable- Mr.
Foos went on to show the feasi
bility and superior inducements
that shoald actuate our citizens
to subscribe liberally, and put
their shonlder to the wheel and
help pueh this great work
through to completion. Mr.
Foos calling for the feeling of
the citizens in regard to heading
of the stock books Mr. Larsb,
Jodge Haines, Morris, Daogher
ty, Tizzard, Eidson, Acton, Ste
phens, Hendricks, and manyoth
er citizens thought that the a-
greement between the R. R. Co.
and subscribers was just right,
and that stock books should im
mediately go into the hands of
energetic agents for the purpose
of soliciting subscriptions. Judge
Haines made an excellent speech
and which was well timed and
right to tho point.
On motion of Judge Haines,
Q. H. Eidson and J. M. Daugher-
ty were appointed agents
At a late hour a motion,
made to adjourn, and carried yond
all went home feeling certain
that the road would be built

J. T. SHIELDS, M. D.,
Dear Sir: I see your name in
connection with others of your
citv advocating the building of a
railroad from Brookville, Indi
ana, to eevmour, which in my
opinion is one of the best moves
made since 1 have been in tbe
county, and I do hope to live to
see Buch an enterprise completed
Commencing at Urookville, in
Franklin county, Indiaua, the
road could be located, most of
the way, on the Old Indian
Bouodry Line to very near Sev-
mour, passing through Southern
part of Decatur, Northern part of
Ripley and Jennings counties, en
tering Jackson county near the
.North-east corner or beymour,
and should Evansville be made
the true terminus, it would pass
through the Southern portion of
Washington, and through the
central portions of Orange, Du
bois and Warrick connties,thence
to Evansville through a portion
The line is indicated as an air
line, and if built changes could
be made to suit or accommodate
county seats &c.
In looking over the entire sys
tem of Indiana railroads, I can
see none in my opinion that pre
sents so many advantages for a
paying investment. The true
policy of a road should be to. ac
commodate the local trafic; in
this case the road would be about
N. 53 n est, which is not very
far from the direction the streams
of water flow, that drain this
country. Ihe surl ace of country
through which it wonld run is
nviting for easy grades and few
bridges, the latter being a heavy
expense to all roads, tbe country
along the line abounds in timber,
stone and rich material, so dis
triboted to make it independent
for material to build; also, it
would have the advautage of ev
ery road it would cross, to reach
tbe Ohio river, or shipments for
the.intenor North sc.
I have hastily written tbe fore
going to simply encourage so
audable work having been in
my early life connected with the
roads first built in Indiana, feel
yet an interest, aud like giving
an expression to some one, and
in this case have troubled you
with my scriblicga, hoping .the
ball will keep moving in the

A High Estimate.
wWtH10,t'ate ,commnd of lan
The following estimate of the
qualifications of the President
and Lis Cabinet, is not flattering:
"Grant has demonstrated that
a very dull and stupid person
may be President, and we all
know that he and all his Cabi
net haven't an aggregate of
brains sufficient to set up a third
class local reporter: It

be Uses in his message, and had
upiflgeY he might get a place on
tbe Mnquirer to report races and
horse markets; and Hoar, it not
too old to learn, might be edu
cated up to the qualifications of
law reporter. As lor the oth
era-, I see no possible use that
could be made of them on a first
Give the stock pigs a good
warm bed tor the winter, and
don't forget to keep them clean
by frequent changes of atraw. A
cold, damp bed renders them
comfortless, and prevonts their
growth, it may be, will give them
mange aud other diseases that
hog flesh is heir to. Feed well,
houee well, and bed well; on
these three things depend thrifty
pigs for next year's fattening

in need of money.
Advice of a Young Lady.
Some months siuce, we receiv
ed the following from a sensible
young lady, with the requeet
tbatx we publish it, but being
crowded with articles of a simi
lar character, it went to our
waste basket. Siuce which we
have come to the conclusion to
give it to our Eaton boys, and
urge that they ponder it careful
ly. Here is what she says, aud
all that you need to know:
"Dear gentlemen, between the
ages of 'eighteen aud forty-five,'
listen to a tew words ot gratui
touB remark. When you make
a social call of an evening, on a
young lady, go away at a reason
able hour. Say you come at 8
o'clock, an hour and a half Is cer
tainly as long as the most fasci-.
nating of you in conversation
can, or rather ought, to desire to
use his charms. I wo hours, in
deed, can be very pleasantly
spent with music, chess, or other
games, to lend variety; but, kind
sirs, by no means stay longer.
Make shorter calls and come oft
ener. A girl that is a sensible,
true-hearted girl will enjoy it
better, and really value your ac
quaintance more. J ust conceive
the agony of a girl who, well
knowing the feelings of a father
and mother upon the subject,
hears the clock strike ten, and
yet must sit on the edge of her
chair, in mortal terror lest papa
should put his oft repeated threat
yi executiou that ot coming
down and inviting the gentleman
to breakfast. And We girls un
derstand it all by experience, and
know what it is to dread the
prognostic of displeasure. In Buch
cases a sight of relief generally
accompanies the closing of the
door behind the gallant, and one
don't get over the feeling of
trouble till safe in the arms of
Morpheus. Even then, some
times the dreams are troubled
with some phantom of an angry
father and distressed (tor all par
ties) mother; and all because a
young man will make a. longer
call than he ought to.
JSow, young gentlemen friends,
I'll tell you what we girls will do.
For an hour and a half we will
be most irresistibly charming and
fascinating; then, beware, mono
syllable responses will be all you
need expect. And if, when the
limits shall have been passed, a
startling query shall be beard
coming down stairs : 'Isn't it
time to close up ?' you must con
sider it a righteous punishment,
and, takiug your. hat; meekly de
part a sadder, and, it is to be
hoped, a wiser man. Do not get
angry; but the next time yon
come, be careful to keep within
boutids. We want to riBe early
these pleasant mornings, and im
prove tbe 'shining hours;' but
when forced to be up at such un
reasonable hours at night, ex
hausted nature will speak, aud,
as a natural consequence, with
the utmost Bpeed in dressing, we
can barely get aown to oreaKiasi
in- time to escape a reprimand
from papa, who don't believe in
beaux as though ho never was
young and a mild, reproving
glance from mamma, who un
derstands a little better poor
daughter's feelings, but still must
disapprove outwardly, to keep
up appearances.' And uow.young
men, think about these things,
and don't for pity's sake, don't
throw down your paper with a
'pshaw !' but remember the safe
side of ten."
We never had "nigger-on-the-
brain,'' one way or another. We
don't take as much stock in the
divine African as his professed
admirers do, and we see uo reas
on why we should. But we have
got free trade on the brain.
Give us that; div.orce the Govern
ment from robbers and jobbers,
and we shall patiently wait bless
ed consummation which is cer
tain to follow. Even now, in full
assurance of faith, we are looking
for this mighty deliverance.

Sandusky, Seymour & Louisville
It has been but a few weeks
since our first article appeared
urging the importance, practica
bility, and necessity, ol making
Seymour the terminus of the
Sandusky and Louisville Rail
road, instead of running direct
to the Ohio river at Louisville,
without passing near this point
Since then, the good work has
progressed rapidly aud most fav
orably, until to-day, it seeme
that our ideas meet with univer
sal approbation of all concerned
or connected with the old road,
and it now only needs the proper
efforts on the part of our town
and county, to insure the com
pletion of a route, that will place
our city at once among the first
towns of tbe State in point of
material wealth, and commercial
It has beeu demonstrated be
yond tbe possibility of successful
contradiction, that the proposed
change in the route, running it
direct from Brookville, In Frank
Iin county, to Seymour, instead
of to the river direct, vou!d first
of all, make a vast difference iu
point of cheapness of construes
tion; passing through a section of
country where neither high
grades nor deep fills would be
necessary, and wbere no .wide
streams nor dangerous water
courses remain to be bridged.
Add to this, that the old route
would pass through a portion of
Southern Indiana -unusually dif
ficult throughout, and in places
almost impracticable, and the
force and importance of this
point can be at once seen. It
would make a difference of sev
eral thousand dollars in every
mile. The new route would pass
through a deb; undeveloped and
populour sectior. of country the
local earnings of which, would
in a short time contribute large
ly toward paying the running
expenses of the road. But more
important, perhaps than any oth
er consideration," is the fact, that
it saves the constructing of over
40 miles of road, making a sav
ing thereby or near a minion
dollars. The Jeffersc mville Rail
road company have offered the

"Spirits of Just Men Made Miserable!"
We are happy to inform "all
the world and the rest of man
kind," that a recent event trans
pired in "omt midst," which con
clu8ivcly satisfies us that "tbe
best government the world ever
saw'' is sound to the core, that
the National credit will go down
to future prosperity in an unim
paired condition, and that the
nigger should have a vote! It
is generally known that a coun
try editor has a "hard road to
trabbel," and that for his labor
he is glad to take anything that
will afford either temporal or
spiritual sustenance to his soul
and body, even unto the prayers
of our "free and easy" christians!

must be misfortune) to become

article would afford, we conclud
ed to expose it for sale in one of
our prominent Drug Stores, and
thus convert it into Natioual rags,
wherewith we might purchase
something substantial for the "in

bill. But, alas! for human hopes!

now mourning over tbe loss of
"depai ted spirits" which have
gone, no doubt, "where the wood-
bire twineth." We are a little
consoled, however, over our loss,
by knowing that we huve contri
buted liberally toward liquidia-
