Editar Hocking Sentinel:
My attention has beam attract
ed to a special and very import
ant article that came out in a
column of your paper. The Sen
tinel is an excellent paper and
on capable of bearing useful in
telligence as well as glowing in
A new era is ushered in. The
cynosure of to-day is those teach
.ere and other persons mentioned
in the items of that article refer
red to. They are enjoying the
state of celibacy and are com
mitting ao 6ih. unless they are
depriving some handaome young
lady of her privilege of connubial
happiness. I, as a disinterested
parson take the responsibility
upon myself to act as represen
tative of these respectable gen
tlemen. I call them respecta
ble gentlemen, because they are
the flower of Starr township.
Where could there be another
equal number selected that would
cope with these in character, de
corum and respectability ? No
where in the township. I feel
that the said' named persons owe
tho author of that piece a tribute
of respect. They should agre on
a rendesvous and form into a
body as a whole aud go to the
author and return to him their
devotion of fhanks. Give honor
unto him to whom honor is due.
He has made you conspicuous
by calling the attention of the
fair sex to your present relation
to humanity. Undoubtedly, he
meant well, but he shows a lame
ness by not knowing that the
ladies in "upper ten" are belter
acquainted with these young man
than he himself.
If.any lovely damsel wishos to
join in the holy bonds of matri
mony with a gentleman, she
wants to mako her choice from
this goodly aumber, for I am
familiarly acquainted with some
of these young men, aud the rest
I know by reputation, and can
vouch for their genial disposi
tion, good sense, and tender pa
thos. No young" lady will ever
receive a warmer embrace from
anybody else than when en
circled in the loving arms of one
of those wholehearted and sound
principled gentlemen. May truth
and wisdom guide my pen while
I am writing in behalf of these
young men! I would. that they
may mate a happy choiee, if any
choice they ever make, and live
as pleasantly in unison with
some good and kind woman as
they have lived singly! I admire
their judgment in this matter.
They have postponed marriage
uatil they are ripe and can man
age their business with discre
tion. This thing of trundled-bed
nrchius getting married before
they are dry behind the ears is
follv. They feel an aehing void
that nothing but the hymenial
bond will ever fill. They are un
sound in judgment, and begin
their work without any definite
aim and end in failure. I con
jecture that ther anthor of that
article has married too young
and now sees his folly. It is but
natural when one man gels bored
to bore as many others with the
same thing as possible. I desire
that ihe author may live long
and be a nucleus around which
other groat men may unite to
make themselves famous. May
these brave boys in the state of
celibacy give due eulogy to the
author fos his greatness. May
they, like him, become the stars
of all earthly greatness. May
they enroll their names on the
pages of God's album of eternal
white, where gem.3 of honor may
adorn their souls and 'flowers of
glory may entwine their hearts
like constellations of stars in the
dome of heaven.
Now, bachelors, be wise love
the author of that article, who
has presented you so conspicu
ously to the eyes of the fair ones
of God's handiwork. Tiie young
ladies, too, owe their thanks to
the author, for it may enable
them to select a respectable com
panion who will add gayety and
felicity lo thier life.
Ladies, choose you a man with
brains, and I will insure you to
make the voyage ef ltfe pleas
antly. These persons designated
are such. There are nonesuch.
I imagino I see an omon fore
shadowing the ray of light blend
ing eash of these bachelors with
a handsome belle to share each
other's blessings in the mutual
embrace of life. May they unite
'closer until they blend in tho'
choir of angels to sing

From a Democrat.
In the last issue of the New
Lexington Herald, Judge Ball, of
Zanesville, under nora de plume
of "A Democrat" we assume to
say it is Judge Ball, because no
man of Eastern Ohio can say
things more vigorously and to
the point,as this article says
them, than Gen. Ball submits
the following views on the situa
tion aud the expectancy:
A Dcsuecrat's Tlevra of Payne.
Editors Herald The Presi
dential election of next Novem
ber will be more important, prac
tically, than any that has occur
red for many years. The gov
ernment, in its powers and pat
ronage especially the latter
has increased largely within the
last twenty-three years. The
various administrations have al
lied themselves to the capital of
me country iavoring ana nur
sing the greatest monied inter
ests. The election to be held
will, if the Democrats do no un
wise thing lo alienate the people
from the party, test the question
whether the people are strong
enough to defeat a pirty in pow
er, having the patronage of the
government and the influence
and power of the -wealth of the
country to aid it. A part' so sit
uated was defeated, clearly de
feated, in 1S70, but the defeat
was annulled by fraud, usurpa
tion, a,rBVoLutionury uae--of ec
portion of the army and the pros
titution of Judges, Senators and
Members of the House. Wheth
er the powers that be will ac
quiesce in the inauguration of
the successful candidate, if the
Demecaats elect, is a question in
which all friends of Republican
government have an interest. I
should uot, have such doubt nor
apprehend such danger if the
conduct of 187G had not mani
fested a strong revolutionary dis
position ; or even if I did not be
lieve there are covered up (to
some extent covered up) great
frauds' involving officials from
the highest through many grades
and in all branches and depart
ments. This doubt and the cor
ruptions that have been exposed
but not-punished, ought" to-ap-peal
successfully to the people
for a change. The administra
tion of this government is a great
er task now thin it w:is fifty
years ago; States have multiplied,
industries and interests have
multiplied; wealth, individual
and corporate, has acquired un
precedented proportions; llie rev
enues of the government have
enlarged and the people have
grown more numerous. Agri
culture, starting at the eastern
seaboard, has moved west to the
Pacific; manufacturing enter
prises, succeeding agriculture on
the seaboard, are moving also to
the south and to the Pacific, and
are already Grossing the Missis
sippi. Principles do not chango poli
cies must change. The ten com
mandments apply to children
and adults, but the policy of gov
erning changes with increasing
years. Those pr ncr les of lib
erty to which the Democratic
party has ever clung, areas ap
plicable and as sacred to-day as
they were in the days, of Jeffer-
erson. The wise and judicious
statesman looks to the past and
presen, judges the future, and,
adhereing to principles moulds
his policy and his measures to
the changing circumstances for
present and future prosperity.
Many politicians seek popularity
and personal success alone; stales
mauship is crowded to the rear
to give place to shrewdness in
party manipulation: legislation
is too often with a view to re
tain, or to obtain official position;
principles are lost sight of.
Problems have arisen, and are
arising which require the clear
est, most earnest and practical
thought for their solution. Rail
roads, factories and coal banks
are spread largely over the coun
try, employing many laborers
whose families depend upon
weekly earnings for bread; these
poeple must be protected against
oppression on the part of their
employers; properly- must be
protected from destruction by
excited strikers, this will be done
principally by protecting labor
ers against oppressive wages; en
ormous accumulations of weaHh,
individual and combined, must
be made harmless by judicious
legislation; dealing in stocks and
produce must be restrained and
governed, and gambling therein
The Democrats will act wisely
if thoy select as their candidate
a man of clear and strong intel
lect, well informed in all politi
cal matters, true to-the great
principles 0f the party, practical.
sessed ' of nerve to do what is
I have looked carefully over
the field and I find no man the
peer of Henry B. Payne in all
the qualities and qualifications
requisite in a President. I was
opposed to Mr. Payne, I cannot
tell why, except that he was an
aggressive Democrat when 1 was
a devoted Whig. I read his can
did, manly and statesmanlike
speech at the'Senatorial banquet
at Columbus, and my unwilling
Bess to support him ceased at
once. His character political and
j peroonal, is without reproach, his
Democracy is life long and con
sistent; his ability without a su
perior. All sections, classes and
factions can support him. All
would feel confidence that his
administration would be pure,
prosperous and marked in ils
ability; no administration would
more firmly embed the party in
the confidence and affection of
the people. The few idiotic
Democratic mutterings that are
heard against him would subside
aud those who utter them would
join in the general demand for
Ills election. Mr. Payne has said
he is not and will not be a can
didate; that does not mean that
he will not accept a nomination.
He has never thrust himself up
on the people as a candidate
he never will. He has never re
fused to serve his country when
his party demanded his service;
I believe he never will, while
blest with active, robust health
as now. 'JjieimerilejtaiwA.

It was only the other day that
a party of knights of the green
cloth, seated around the stove in
A Second street saloon, were dis
cussing the merits and demer
its of a pawn broker named
Solomon, who does business in
South Laramie. All agree that
the old fellow was cloir than
one's undergarment, and never
let a dollar get out of his fing9rs
without knowing that the recip
ient left the- equivalent office in
his liands as security-
"1 tell vou boys," said one, "if
old Death himself should call on
Soloman and oflet'-a new lease ot
life for ten dollars, he'd make the
old chap open his over coat and
exhibit his dry bonea before he
would condescend to dicker with
him at all. He'd want to be
morally certain that it was death
and even then he'd insist on his
leaving his coat as a kind of
a guarantee, you know.
Just then a new arrival chip
ped in and wanted lo know who
they were talking about. On be
ing told he declared that Solo
mon wasn't such an old skinflint
as many supposed. " Wiry, - said
he, "I'll bet fifty dollars that 1
can go and borrow twenty -five
dollars of him right now without
any other security than my word
. There were half a dozen takers
at once. The bet was made and
the money put up in the hands
ofone of the boys, and the new
arrival accompanied by one ot
ths party, started lor Solomon's
place of business. Arriving there
the would-be borrower entered
while the other man remained
on the outside, but looked thro'
the window to. see that nothing
in shape of a "security" changed
The pawnbroker was soon
made aqtiainted with the terms
of the bet. "Now," said the ap
plicant, "'you lend me twenty
five dollars, and of course 1 win
fifty dollars, then 111 return your
money and also give you half I

o'clock this morning the rebels
under Osman. Digna, opened a
heavy fire on General Graham's
camp, about 11 miles distant.
The British soldiers were Instant
ly alert. 'J he men formed into
squares preparatory to receiving
the attack, which was momenta
rily expected. No attack came.
The rebels kept up firing until
daybreak, without drawing a re

the British troops were ordered
to open fire on the enemy, and
fighting commenced. Probable
there were not more than 3,000
heads before the British troops
on the front, but hundreds were
seen on each side of the square.
As the British advanced, the men
sprang up sometimes at 200 yds.,
armed with spears and brandish

down upon the British
at breakneck speed until the bul
