Sometimes its supporters quarrel

sometimes sober second thought
.assails it. Time, with Us Ithuriel
spear, inevitably pierces it, and it

an Eastern sage who urged his

Horrible Murder of a Young Lady.
Daytos 0., Jan. 12-. Miss Chris
tine Kelt, aged about eighteen
years, living on Oak street, in this
city, was brutally murdered yester
day afternoon, during the tempo
rary absence of her mother, by
some unknown person. Bloody
tracks were found in the snow out
Bide ot the bouse, and marks of
blood were, also found upon the
fence A discharged pistol winch
belonged to her brother, was found
by her side, .but there were cuts
upon her head made by 'some sharp
instrument, and the supposition is,
that in attempting to detend her
self with the pistol from the brutal
assault of a ruffian, she was killed,
by him. , The pistol was fired into
the wound and so placed as to
raise the presumption of suicide.

'forcing it upon the people of all the Terri

9. KesolveJ, That the Democratic news
pipers of Ohio deserve ourearncsl and liber

orgar.izi'toii of the party is indispensable.
The last Chillicolhe Advertiser
says, "Tho Vinton Record has.
ceased to exist." We'hope Broth
er Putnam will ilo us the justice to
contradict the above. I'lease re
member, hereafter, that the Record
belongs to that class of papers that
never surrenders, and consequent
ly never dies. No Sir-ce ; as soon
may you expect another Joshua to
appear in our midst, and command
the sun to standstill, as the Record
to cease while, we aro connected
with the office. That thing can't
be did. . Bro. Putnam ought to
know us better.
The Portsmouth Tribune, the
African organ of Scioto county,
which appellation we give it a3 an
off-set to Copperhead, as used in
its notice, says: . . ,. .
Mr.'W. E. Bralton retires from
the Vinton County Record cop
perhead for the reason that it
don't pay. A good, live Republi
can organ would pay in Vinton
county, and we hope ere long to
hear of sudh a one being started.
There is no disguising the fact
that Democratic papers don't pay
in Ohio; and it is. just as likely
that a live Republican organ
would, as they have ;of' late years,
had a capital chance 1 at 'stealing,
but they are now not 60 success
ful since Andy Johnson has been
berJieading ihem oil'. But Brother
, McFarland, you know we don't
publish papers to "make it pay1,"
but for, the advocacy 'of1 honest'
principles. As to lire papers of
any party in Vinton paying, its a
good joke on th0 publishers. We
hope our Republican friends will
not be deterred, however, from try
ing the experiment again, if they
see proper ; but we all know there
is not enough business in the coun
ty, of all partie?, to sustain one
paper as it should be sustained.
Another Press at McArthur.
f The Chillicothe Advertiser says :
"Tho material upon which the
Republican was printed, at Waver
ly, has been removed to McAr
thur, Vinton county, for the pub
lication, of a new papej."
The press and material above
mentioned, arrived here on tho 12th
inst. We learn it was purchased
by J. W.' Bowetyformerly of tho
Jackson County Express, at the
instance and aid of Sheriff Shock
ey and one cr two others, to start
another, and, as they claim, a true
Democratic paper.- If this be true,
wo would suggest that they call it
the " Democratic Disorganizer."
Nothing can le more apparent
to every Democrat in Vinton, than
the fact that the starting of anoth
er Democratic papei hero will tend
to tho permanent disorganization
of the Democratic party in this
county. Our pr S3 has heretofore
and will' hereafter advocate and
defend the principles of the Consti
tution, and the Democratic candi
dates nominated upon platforms
that conform to. and sustain the
Constitution ; and we hee tay to
our fellow-citizens of Vinton, that
there is hot men nor money enough
in Ohio to switch us off the track.
And we here declare, that we will
sooner expose thcV men whom we
talk and write for, and vote for,
who then betray the confidence we
have placed in them, as officers and
agents of the" people, than we would
expose a political opponent. That
maiif that we work and vote for, to
elect, and who betrays that confi
dence, is unworthy tho support
and confidence of nny man or par
ty. , Tho Record press has always
stood by the people of the county,
and we ask the Banie support and
confidence as heretofore.
This pre s lias been Tor sale for
the past two years, at a fair price.
Why did not these new paper men
buy it, instead of attempting to
disorganize the party in this coun
"The right is always expedient"
is our motto, and by this we try to
judge of the act3 of oilmen, wheth
er of political friends or foes.
DEMOCRATIC STATE TICKET.
Wo this week place at the head

ocratic State' ticket, nominated on

better men could have been select

Thurman will make a different
Governor from nny wo have had
for the past ten years. The Judge
is a gentleman of the largest ex
perience, served a term on our
Supreme bench, and declined a re
nomination for the same position.
He is deservedly popular, and his
old neighbors jn Ross, and, where
he now resides, in Columbus -those
who know him best will rally to
his support wiihout regard to par
ty. He will undoubtedly be the
next Governor of Ohio. We will

MR. PENDLETON'S SPEECH.
We hope -no person who reads
these lines will fail to read the able,
logical, aud patriotic speech of Mr.
Pendleton, on the first page of this
paper. Mr. Pendleton ' is one of
the most eminent jurists and hon
est statesmen of the United States,
and hasi the esteem, confidence, and
respect of his political opponents.
We do hope our Republican friends
will read this speech and let us
hear their objections to it.
A bill has been introduced in
the Senate at Washington which
will create some stir in Utah.
Among other anti-Mormon provi
sions there is a clause providing
lor the punishment of men and wo
men living together who are not

Impeachment of the President.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.
It is now 6tated by those who
profess to Jiave learned the plans
of the leaders in 'he impeachment
scheme, that having come to the
conclusion that there can not be a
conviction in the Senate, even
though the President should be
broutrht before that body on aiw
impeachment by the House, the
leaders mentioned have determined
to pass a law providing that when
articles of impeachment aro pre
ferred the party charged shall be
immediately suspended in the exe
cution of his official dutics, and an
other placed in his office until the
trial is over.
Under such a law it is claimed
tho mere' passage of the bill in the
House would suspend Mr. Johnson,
and Mr. Wade would bo selected
as the ad interim President. By
prolonging the trial until the 4th of
March, 1809, Mf. Johnson would bo
efleetually legislated out of office,
and in the mean time the Territo
rial and other measures intruded
forthe' reconstruction of tho South
can be passed. Such is tho out
line of the plan now proposed.
There are some who, while they
lavor anv mode of getting 'rid of
Mr. Johnson, nevertheless declare
such a law as that above mention
ed would bo cxpost facto oOetro
active, and tnereipre unconstitu
tional and void, inasmuch as it pro
vides for a penalty or punishment
for nn offense after the commission
of the act. . : .
