PfiisiwsT to notice, tho solid
men, boys, dc, of McArthur as
sembled at the Court House, on
Friday evening of last week, to
consult, advise, deliberate, talk and
plan with regard to building a
Bailroad from McArthur Station to
this place. The meeting, as usual,
was large and enlhus.astic. Every
one was in lavor of the rond being
built at once, and for that purpose
voted "aye" for everything that
was proposed. Before proceeding
to businesSjStimulants, in the tsliape
of liit'alutin speeches, were ad
ministered to raise tho necessary
feeling. The infernal hills about
hero were made the subject of lof
ty panegyric. Borne, that
"Sat upon her soven liillH,
A r,0 from her lliroi.u of beauty
Ruled tho world,"
was "nowhere" to McArthur,simat
ted in tho mud and fenced m by
"knobs." Very few had any idea
of tho inexhaustible resources that
surrounded'them before they at
tended tho meeting. Very few
will again until they next meet.
The meeting was called to order
by J. J. McDowell, Esq., who pro
posed the name of George Lantz
as Chairman. The unanimity with
which the motion was seconded
and carried, was a very high-flown
testimonial to tho deep-seated ad-
niration which inspired the swelling
and rosponsive besoms of George's
fellow-citizens. That was a proud
moment in George's existence
when he thus felt himself called
upon to preside over the beauty
and capital of the county seat.
That he did justice to himself and
the occasion, there can be no doubt.
John S. Hawk, Esq., was, with a
like unanimity and enthusiasm,
called to act as Secretary of the
meeting. He received tho compli
ment to his integrity and penman
ship with his usual appearance of
modesty and resignation.
The Chairman not being thorough
ly versed in the object of the meet
ing wanted some one to state the
business before the house. There
upon J. J. McDowell, Esq., arose
and did so. The object was to
build a Eailroad. He hoped that
others would give their views on
railroads in general and the one
proposed, in particular. He there
upon sat down and the responsible
and irrepressible editor of this pa
per got up. Ho wanted no half
way measures. Tho road should
run through to Logan, so that those
who wanted to and had the money,
might go to .New York or anywhere
At this time, or a little before or
aiter, a motion wa made to ap-
point a committee of five gentle-
men to meet the Directors of the'
& C. H. II, who were to meet
at Chillicothe, on tho 20lh. The
question then'was what this com
mittee was to do. More remarks
were called for and immediately
came. Mr. Mayo was called foi
also. Tho proverbial modesty of
this gentleman prevented him from
taking the stand in anything like a
hurry. A detailed account of his
remarks would about fill our col
umns, so we must needs pass them
Judge 1'lyley was next called for
and came. The Judge, judging
from his remarks, was not over
sanguine on tho subject of rail
roads. He told them that if they
succeeded in getting an old worn
out engine to run over old broken
ties, up to this place, they might
"thank God." lie, however, talked
to the conclusion that we thould
and might hare a railroad.
Some sparri.ng took place as to
whether the road should stop here
or run on to Logan. Tjie meeting
came to the conclusion thut if the

A resolution was offered by II.
C. Jones, expressing the confidence
of the meeting in the business tact

Tho odious bill for converting
the Southern States into a military
despotism passed the Senate yes
terday morning, Sabbath. It was
well that the Badical destructives
Miould consummate their iniquity
upon the holy Sabbath. It would
seem as if Providence had so ar
ranged that the enslavement ol
eight millions of Americans, and
the desecration of the Lord's Day
should go hand in hand. The bill
as amended is but a small improve
ment upon tho original. The
SMirti is Imn.-lfld over bodily to tho
caprice of any military tyrant that
daro play the part of Nero. life
vote was 20 to 10, and yet there
not one of that twenty-nino nut
has, or would scream against tho
tyranny of European despots.
As it is, tho Southern people are
to be placed under a military vas
salage. Can it be that tho North
ern and Western men, when they
gave their votes to place such men
as we see hold a majoiity in Con
gress, contemplated that they
would so abuse " their power ? Do
they realize the fact that, to keep
the South subjected, a standing ar
my of one hundred thousand men
will not bo sufficient? Are they
prepared to enduro a perpetual
system of taxation, under which
that of England even appears light?
By this act they converted the
South into a gigantic Ireland, and
an Ireland that will bo more trou
blesome in case of any foreign im
broglio than the "Green Isle" is to
England, for its hate will be solid,
compact and undivided. Here is
a precious finale to the "War for
tho Union," as hypocritical a mot
to as ever was invented by liars
and sneaks. Had such a consum
mation as this been foreseen, we
are satisfied that not one in ten of
tho brave men who shouldered a
musket for the preservation of an
undivided country, but would have
been content to embrace the alter
native of certain black journalists,
and "let the Union slide."
We wri'e this hurriedly upon tho
receipt of the telegram, but we do
not propose to dismiss the subject
with this passing notice. The en
slavement of a brave, gallant and
impulsive people, however they
may have erred, will bo recorded
as one of tho monstrosities of tho
age. The question is not alone
whether tho South will endure it,
for wc err if tho manly heart, of the
North is not indignant at the out
rage upon its old associates of the
[Cin. Enquirer. Who Foots the Bill!---Legislation
as is Legislation.
The State Auditor of Ohio, in his
recent annual report to the Ohio
Legislature, says" that one hundred
millions of dollars, in this blate,
are invested in United States stocks
and co untaxed. What that am't
would yield in taxes, if put among
other taxables on tho duplicate,
but which it does not yield on ac
count of the exemption complain
ed of, has to be made up off the
taxables that are on the duplicate,
by increasing their burthen to the
extent of the exemption. Yet, in
the face of that startling fact, with
the report of the State Auditor be
fore it, the Legislature, now in ses
sion at Columbus, voted, the other
day, to take off the duplicate the
largest tax-payers' taxables of this
city tho taxables amounting to
over one and a quarter million of
dollars! And, after the members
had done that thing, they went and
enjoyed a big spree paid for by the
lobby agents, who had persuaded
members to so wrong their own
constituents, and the constituents
of other members, who had op
posed the folly. Fossibly that kind
of legislation will pay: but tho
question arises, who foots the bill?

A Perfect Antidote for all Poisons.
A plain farmer says: It is now
over twenty years 6ince 1 learned
that sweet oil would cure the bite
of a rattlesnake, not knowing it
would cure any other kind of poi
son. Practice, observation and ex
perience have taught me it will
cure poison ot any kind, both on
man and beast. I think no farmer
should be without a bottle of it in
his house. The patient must take
a teaspoonful of it internally, and
bathe the wound for a cure. To
cure a horse it requires eight times
as much as it dees a man. Here
let me sav one of the worst cases
of snake bite in the neighbood, oc

thirty days standing and the pa
tient had been given up by his
