There will bo a meeting of our
citizens, at the Court House, on
Friday Evenly, Feb. l."5, 1807,
to take into consideration the sub
ject of a continuation of the M. &
0. Railroad from McArthur Station
via McArthur to Logan. We hope
pur citizens will turnout, and make
a move in this all-important mat
ter. Only about thirty miles of
road remains to bo made, in order
to connect us in all directions.
Turn out, everybody I
Railroad to McArthur.
The certificate of incorporation of the
Newark. Somerset & ftraltsville Railroad
Company was Hied nt the Secretary of
State 8 office on Tticsuay. dan. zu. ine
company is organized with u capital of
$500,000, to construct a railroad from New-
ark via Somerset, in Ferry county, ami
the valley of Monday Creek, opposite
Straltsvllle, In the same county, to the pro
posed line of the Athens and Columbus
Railroad, or to Logan in Hocking county.
The corporators arc: Dixon Brown, John
P. Huston, James V. Shirfcy. Martin Ka
gay, Martin Berkoy, Isaac Yost, Robert
C'halfant, W. M. Ream, and John Crossen,
all residents of l'erry county. It is stated
that if this road Is built via Straitsviile,
that it will open one of the tin cist coal re
gions in the country. The road, we under
stand, is hi part already built.
The above, from the Columbus Morning
Journal, Is an important item to this city,
and at least demands a moment's consider
ation. The Seioto and Hocking Valley
ltailroad bed has almost been completed
from llamden to Somerset, and It was the
expenditure on that part of the road near
the divide (or Somerset) that involved the
road and prevented its getting in running
order, and caused the appointment of a re
ceiver and eventually the sale of the road.
We hope the business men of the city will
take some interest and endeavor to secure a
completion of this part to McArthur, Vin
ton county, and open up a coal and iron re
gion equal to the best in the State.
The above, from the 'Portsmouth
Republican, opens up another op
portunity to our citizens to have a
railroad to McArthur. There is,
perhaps, no people so dead to their
interests as ours, both as regards
the development of our mineral
resources and other material inter
ests of our town and county. Why
not hold meetings of our citizens
along the line of the S. and II. V.
Railroad, through the counties of
Vinton and Ilocking to Logan?
Here is a chance now for our peo
ple to make a road from McArthur
Station to Logan, only between 20
and 30 miles, connecting at McAr
thur Station with the M. & C. R. K,
and at Logan with this new road
from Newark and the Mineral R.
R. lrom Columbus to Athens.
There is no town in the State
would sit idly by and see such a
.golden opportunity pass, without
making an extraordinary effort to
make those important connections.
Let us all take hold of this project
and help to develope the resources
of our counly.
The remarks of the Republican
are appropriate, and the people of
Portsmouth will lend a helping
hand in this matter. In fact, there
is no project that would add so
much to the growth and prosperi
ty of Portsmouth, as this. Bro
Drake says, truly, that Vinton's
Vcoal and iron -resources are equal
to the best in the State and it is
stranger to us than any fiction, that
capitalists f om abroad have not
long since 6een it.
The Democratic Disorganizer.
Bro. IIood, of the MariettaTimes,
in speaking of the Shockey-Craig-Rowen
attempt to disorganize the
Democratic party, in this county,
gets off a good hit on the profits of
tire "institooshun." He says:
"Can two democratic newspapers
be sustained in Vinton countyif As
we remark elsewhere, no local jour
nal has yet been adequately sup
ported there little odds which side
it took how, then, in a territory
so small, and so thinly populated,
is it possible for three printing
presses to thrive ? Like the ex
tremely practical Thomas Orad
grind, we pause for an answer.
We can answer that question,
Rro. Hood, to a t-y-U That depends
upon the purso and resources of
the publishers. Shockey, Craig &
Bowen are all rich in resources ;
hence, the Enquirer will run and
thrive, in "these diggings," about
three months. Whether these gents
will succeed, or not, in defeating
the party in Vinton, remains to be
seen. Most of our staid and steady
democrats throughout the country,
look upon the paper as a disorgan
izing sheet. It has disorganized
all concerned m the craft already,
and it now remains to be seen what
effect it will have on the party.
Judge Craig, we are told, gave an
impetus to the thing, last week, by
giving it considerable public print
ing, by way of blanks, laying in
stock enough to last Judge Kaler,
in some things, about two years.
Craig, being a pious man, don't
wish to have the tax-payers meet
these bills gradually, hut lays it on
all at once. Some say it was nec.
essary in order to make the tax
payers help pay for the new press
We are also informed that Judge
Craig will take the editorial chair,
as Shockey doubts the ability of
Bowen to run the machine. If this
be true, the thing will prove a suc

nor their seed begging bread." As
to running a paper to thrive pecu
niarily, we never expected it here.

That blundering logic of an edi
tor who controls the columns of
the Athens Messenger, had aroused
our sympathetic feelings full to
overflowing. We had, on reading
his article on the supposed murder
of E. D. Harper, our imagination
completely upset with scenes of
assassination, blood,pistols, garotcs,
bowie-knives, boulders, fiends, dev

all our sympathy and indignation

A special telegram to the Chica
go Republican, dated at Washing
ton, 11th inst., has the following:
"The Washington Chronicle (Col.
Forney's journal) of to-day, has the
following threat in a leading edito
rial: 'If the existing conflict is not
terminated by impeachment, it will
end in war.' "
This is to say that if radicalism
can carry its plans in no other way
it will resort to war. Well, who
will do its fighting in such a war?
Will Forney? Why, he kept out of
harm's way all during the war, to
indulge, largely, in fat contracts,
and he would do the same again.
Such braggarts forget that the late
war strained our country's credit to
its utmost tension, and that the
first gun in another war would send
greenbacks and government stocks
down to ten cents on the dollar. In
view of the fact that money is the
sinews of war, how long would 6uch
a war last? Isut the qiestion is,
against whom is the war to be
made? Is this creature who used
to be called Lincoln's dog, and who
lias all the qualities of a very
mean dog, threatening the country
with civil war, radicalism will in
augurate it, and it will be the first
thing killed. This done, peace
would come of itself. Chil. Adv.
NEWS OF THE WEEK.
An United States Treasury agent
in Memphis has been arrested up
on the charge ot swindling the
Government of the neat little sum

issued, says that hereafter boys un

of learning music, and then only

the parent, guardian or master has
been obtained, and when that can
not be had, boys will not be receiv

Chicago, Judge Jamison, yesterday
morning, granted a new trial, the
only point being admissions which
he had himself given the jury.
Upon the rendering of the decision,
Stewart's counsel announced that
the means of their client had been
exhausted, and he was utterly un
able to carry on another contest,
and, considering his character ful
ly vindicated by the result of the
former trial, he withdrew from the'
case, and advised his client to do
likewise. Mrs.Stewart will not get
a divorce unopposed.
The County Safe, at West Union
Adams County, was blown open
by burglars last Tuesday morning,
but an alarm being raised they de
camped without any money.
The Cincinnati Commercial of
Saturday lashes, with a sharp edi
torial lash, the Republican mem
bers in the Legislature for their
' moral cowardice" in not submit
ting to a vote ot the people an
amendment to the Constitution al
lowing the Negroes to vote. The
Commercial says that the Republi
can "party is committed to Negro
Suffrage by the vote of its repre
sentatives in Congress." That's.so.
And so are the Republicans of the
Ohio Legislature by indorsing that
vnte. They think, however at
leat some do that they can hood
wink the people yet longer on this
question, if they shall not at pres
ent commit themselves further.
"A bill to blockade our ' own
ports," is the designation given in
some quarters to the new Tariff
A Washington special to the
Commercial says that Sanford Con

It is thought a Compromise Bill
embodying the chief features of
Stevens' and Banks' measures will
be agreed on in the House on
Wednesday. Mr. Elliot's bill will
probably be the basis, as it com
bines both civil and military rule.
Counterfeits of the new five-cent
coin are in circulation, and many
of them have been passed. The

made is nearly perfect, but the

being in some instances, not much
better than lead.
At a regular meeting of the Di
rectors of The Ohio Statesman
Company, held in the city ot Col
umbus, on Friday Jan. 25, 18C7, E.
B. Eshelman was elected President
of the Company, and Editor of The
Ohio Statesman, and L. Hi. Wilson
was elected Secretary and Trea
surer. This is one of the best papers in
the State, our friends should sub.
scribe for it.
43T The names of several good
men have been proposed as candi
dates before the Union Convention
for Governor of Ohio, but none
better than that of Gen. Orland
Smith, of this city. We do not
know that he would permit the use
of his namej or that his business
engagements are in such shape that
he would be willing to serve. But
if he should consent to the use of
his name, he is the man for us.
He is a 'firm, unflinching Union
man, who has shown his faith by
his works by serving in the army
through the rebellion, where he
had an honorable record as a sol
dier. He is also an excellent bus
iness man, with a clear and practi
cal mind, and would make -a first
rate Governor. According to the
custom of our party, this portion
of the State should furnish the next
candidate. We nominate General
Smith for the place. Scioto Gazette.
The Bankrupt Bill passed the
Senate yesterday.. .It goes to the
House for concurrence in the
Prohibitory Liquor Laws Demanded.
Intemperance is growing so ra
pidly that the friends of total legis
lative prohibition are again in mo
tion, and, apparently, very deter
mined to put the thing through by
forming a political party of them
selves, if they can not secure the
co-operation of one of the existing
Eolitical parties. 'In Michigan it
as been resolved to make total
prohibition a political question,and
at Indianapolis, " recently, the ad
vocates of a prohibitory liquor law
met in the hall of the Ilouse of
Repersentatives, and adopted, by
an unanimous vote, the following
"llesolved, That it is the sense of
this heeting that the mighest in
terest of the State dt mand the pas
sage cf a prohibitory law.
"llesolved. That a poltical party
should be formed on a prohibitory
basis, if we fall to get one without."
It would seem ihat "moral suas
ion" has pi oven to be a failure. It
has failed, but why ? Temperance
men should ask themselves that
question. It has failed because
the leaders of the cause were in
temperate in politics, religion,
manners, in fact, in every quality
whoso exercise illustrates the
graces of charity, kindness, good
will, forbearance. Intemperance
in one thing beget intemperance
in another. Moral suasion is an
indifferent weapon in the hands of
those whom communities can not
respect on account of their moral
delinquencies. For five years, re
straints that have always, in well
regulated communities, been con
sidered essential for the good of
society, were abandond, and vice
and immorality seemed to have
free license. It is now considered
essential to check up, not by mor
al suasion, but by penal enact
ments. Possibly they may suc
ceed ; if they do they will present
a virgin chapter to the histonan.
It is understood Gen. Grant ex
presses surprise at intimations that
he approves of the Military Gov
ernment Bill. He deems it unwise
as the provisions would probably
bring him in conflict with the Exe
cutive, his immediate Constitution
al superior. Ue also expresses a
conviction that some bill reor
ganizing civil government, with the
military to. protect and aid, should
be adopted at the earliest moment.
