, We copy the following from the
Ohio Statesman: "After all the
controversy about regulating the
wild whisky business, a novel plan
is now suggested which our read
ers may reflect upon of leaving
the sale of liquors free, and licens
ing driukers, as it is the drinking,
not the selling, that does the mis
chief. The license should provide
that "do man should be entitled to
drink unless he first got a license;
and any bar-keeper who should
sell to an unlicensed party, should
be subject to fine and imprison
ment" The lioense should be an
nual; and the sum charged should
be from twenty to one hundred
dollars. No young man should be
allowed a license till he was six
teen, and then and until twenty
one years of age, only a beer li
cense at a moderate charge. Af
ter twenty-one he should vote,
driuk and chew tobacco upon pay
raent of license; and the same
privilege should be extended to
strong-minded women. Some men,
whose constitutions utterly unfit
them for potations, should be re
fused a license altogether. They
are "non-insurable." Before tak
ing out his license, a citizen would
have to pay in advance for the glo
rious privilege, the reflection would
be forced upon most people. It is
true that with these parchment
privileges, we should have a titu
lar nobility of drink; but lofty as
this aristocracy might be at night,
and in the "wee sma' hours" of the
morning, the next day it would be
abject enough ! There need be .no
fear to our democratic institutions
from a class privileged to these in
flations, at the penalty ol such depressions."

[From Sam. Pike's Hillsboro Gazette.] A Horrible Homicide---Tragedy at Jefferson Barracks---A Federal
Officer Beats a Private Soldier
The Missouri Democrat of the
28th makes the following astound
A homicide was committed at
Jefferson Barracks, yesterday mor
ning, between nine and ten o'clock,
the details of which, as related to
us, if true, exhibit a degree of bru
tality, on the part of an officer, sel
dora equalled in crime.
The statement is that a private
of the Third United States Light
Artillery, stationed at Jefferson
Barracks, had been engaged in jo
king and tormenting a new recruit.
The recruit reported the soldier to
Captain Maxwell, of the Third Ar
tillery who sent word to the soldier
to come to his room. The soldier
did not obey the order, and the
Captain went to the soldier's quar
ters, and there, after some words,
struck him a heavy blow with his
fist on his neck, knocking the man
down. Some of his comrades
picked the soldier np and laid him
on his bunk, when the Captain
dragged him out upon thefloor,and
kicked him a number of times,
causing the man's death. .
It is further stated that the ord
erly sergeant sent a soldier to in
form the Coroner of the occurrence,
ana that the uaptam . naa the sol
dier slopped and placed the serge
ant under arrest. ' . t.

to Death. Tragic Affair in Brownstown—Two
Men Hanged by a Mob.
Browkbtow. Ikd.. March 31.
The town of Brownstown, the coun
ty 6eat of Jackson CountyIndians,
on the Line of tue Ohio and iulssis
sippi Rail roadj was on Saturday
night the (.scene -of a tragic affair,
which resulted in the forcible cap
ture ,from jail and the hanging, by
a mob of the exasperated .citizens
of that vicinity, oftwo men.charged
with the murder of an old lady, for
the purpose of robbery, at or near
Clear bprings, Jackson County, In
diana, some months ago.
It will be remembered that three
men, named lespectively Tally,
Brooks and Laston, were arrested,
charged with committing thathor
nbie nendish crime, ihey .were
placed in jail at Brownstown, to
await trail at the coming spring
term ol Circuit ourt.
The people of Jackson County
were greatly excited when the de
tails of the murder became known,
and although the proof that these
men committed the crime was con
sidered very strong, there was some
doubt, and this doubt was not re
moved until a few days since,when
one ol the men, Brooks,. unable
longer to resist the gnawings of a
guilty conscience, revealed, by a
partail confession, enough to con
clusively show that he and Tal
ly did actually commit the murder,
and that Easton,through' their con
nivance, was an accessory.,
This confession caused a renew
al of the excitement in the com
munity. . The excitement was at
fever heat, and a deep feeling of
vengeance gathered in the public
mind. The law was too slow, and
it was whispered around that the
trial of the murderers would prob
ably be delayed from court to court,
and that finally they would escape
the punishment they so richly rde
served. This feeling resulted on
Saturday night in the formation of
a mob, numbering from two hun
dred and fifty to three hundred
On meeting, it is said, they re
solved to hang Brooks and Tally,
and leave Easton to be tried by the
Court, to see if the law would hang
him, the crowd agreeing at the
same time that they would hang
him if the law failed. At midnight
the , mob entered Brownstown,
mounted upon horses They march
ed for the jail, and, filing right and
left, completely surrounded it. The
leaders called out the jailor and
demanded the prisoners, Brooks
and Tally, or the keys of the jaiL .
The jailor peremptorily refused
to give up either the prisoner or

out "break down the door," "break
in the door," and a rush was made
for the jail door.' It readily gave
way, and several men entered the
jail, who soon returned, dragging
lorth the two murderers.
They were taken to the Court
house yard surrounded by the mob.
Brooks was horror-stricken, and up
on his knees begged for life, and
declared that he would make a lull
confession if he was allowed time.
Tally, being a man ot great nerve,
and possessed of great calmness,
declared that he was not guilty,and
that if he was hung he would die
an innocent man.
The shouts from the crowd were:
"Hang them," "Hang them." Tal
ly was told that time would be giv
en him to make a confession; .
He replied that he had none to
He was then asked if he wished a
minister to pray for him.
He replied he did.
The Rev. Mr. Benton was sent
for, and soon made his appearance,
and seeing the determination of
those around him, and that an ap
peal for mercy was useless, admin
istered to the spiritual wants of
the doomed men. He prayed for
forgiveness of their sins, and for
peace with their God. After this
religious service, Tally was told to
prepare for immediate execution.
He very coolly objected to the tree
which the mob had selected. He
pointed to one near -by, saying it
was a much better tree, as its pro
jecting limbs would allow their
bodies to swing clear of the1 body
of the tree. The debired chance
was made. Barrels were placed
under a projecting limb, ' to which
ropes were attached. Tally got up
on a barrel and made a request
that ' he be allowed to fasten the
rope around his own neck, which
he was allowed to do. .
After adjusting the rone around
his neck to his catisfaction, which
operation occupied but about three
minutes, he gave the barrel under
him a kick, and was left suspended
in the air. Brooks lost several
minutes in' begging an . praying
for his life to be spared...1 He was
put upon the barrel, the , rope tied
fast around his neck, and the bar
rel knocked from under him. ,
They hung for forty-fiye minutes,
when life yas declared extinct The
bodies were then, taken down and
placed in the Court-house.. ..The

The Prospect of Striking Out the
Our readers are aware the Rad
ical majority in the Mate Senate
of Ohio, after much "backing and
filling," have at last strewed their
courage up to "the sticking point,"
and have proposed to amend the
Constitution of Ohio, by striking
out that, in Radical estimation, ve
ry odious word "white." So far as
they are concerned, the Senate is
willing to trust the people of Ohio
with a direct vote, yea or nay, on
the question. But the House of
Representatives is more wary and
foxy, and approaches the subject as
it they were fearful there was in it
a Democratic trap. The Columbus
correspondent of the Gazette thus
prepares the public mind for the
failure pf .the proposition.. He says.
"There is almost univeisal satis
faction in the Union ranks here,
both in and out of the Legislature,
over the praiseworthy action of the
Senate last evening, in taking the
first step toward removing the
great stain that now . pollutes the
organic law of the State, and many
are the regrets that that actio.", for
the want of the co-operation of the
other branch of the General .As
sembly, will be of no more practi
cal effect than as a mere expres
sion ol opinion of the the body that
gave it utterance that the proposi
tion of manhood suffrage should be
at once submitted to the people for
their approval or rejection. It will
require sixty-three votes to pass
the measure in the House, lhe
number of Union members at the
beginning of the session was sixty-
nine; one has resigned, thus leav
ing only sixty-eight. . Of these,two
friends of the proposed Constitu
tional Amendment Messrs. Boyn
ton and Hugh are seriousiy ill.and
it is thought that they will be un
able to resume their legislative
duties thisBession, in which case
the number would really be reduc
ed to sixty-six, thus leaving a mar
gin of only three votes to cover
other contingencies that may arise.
The truth is the friends of the mea
sure do not look for its success un
less there should be a wonderful
change into the views . of several

The Election in Connecticut.
The Boston Post, in an article
upon this election, which takes
place on Monday next, 6peaks thus
confidently of the result:
"The Democrats will elect two,
if not three, members of congress,
in the First and Second, and prob
ably in the Fourth districts, while
in the Third the Radical marjority
will be reduced at least on half,
and perhaps more. Mr. Martin is
making , an energetic canvass in
that District with his opponent,
Starkweather, and creating an ex
cellent impression wherever he is
heard in the public dis cussion he
is carrying on. Messrs. Deming
and Barnum are stumping their
own districts to the decided advant
age of the Democracy, who will in
sist on their being kept out until
election day. Barnum's Jcousin has
entered the lists as a rival to his
more notorious namesake, and the
Radical papers think, to crush him
by calling him 'nasty;' but they
seem to have overlooked the natu
ral.influence of relationship. The
Barnum has no serious expectation
of being elected, but holds on by
the Radical party merely in a 'pro-;
fessional'.way, hoping to exhibit.it
before the breath shall have whol
ly gone from its body. Messrs. Hub
bard and Hotchkiss are, ' certain of
an election to Congress in the First
and Second; districts, and all ac
counts concede the election to Wil
liam H. Barnum, of Salisbury, in
the Fourth." -
