A Sensation.—A Colincidence.—
What Does It Mean?
A man who gives bis name
as Hiram Josephs, who is in
jail lor breaking into Nelson
Hoff nine's house and stealing
clothing, money, etc., there
from has been telling the jailor
repeatedly ever since he was
Imprisoned, that Gen. Grant
would be assassinated on last
Saturday night. On Sunday
morning he repeated his story,
saying that Grant had been
shot and killed on that night.
No attention was paid to his
talk as it was believed that he
was trying to play off crazy,
but in connection with it has
occurred a remarkable inci
dent in another locality. On
Saturday night a telegram was
received at Columbus convey
ing the news of the President's
assassination, sent by Borne un
known hxnd. Now, what does
it mean? Was there a plot I o
assassinate, of which Josephs
was aware, and the telegram
was only untrue because some
person failed in its execution;
or was it merely a strange co
incidence? Here is what the
Journal says of the receipt of
the dispatch, in Columbus;
"Some one who.deserves a sea
son in a horse pond, sent over
the wires Saturday night the
terrible words, 'Prest. Grant,
has been nssasinated.'
"There was only this bare
statement, and as it came just
about the time citizans were
n their way to supper, it cre
ated intense excitement. The
telegraph offices were besieged,
but without effect they could
give no satislaction. Govern
or Noyes, upon hearing the
news, came up street, and this
only served to whet the appe
lite of the public for informa
tion. Persons who disbeliev
ed the story, were convinced
of its truth when they saw the
Governer with anxious lace
bending over the table in the
telegnph ofH:e scanning the
evening press dispatches. The
story flew like wildfire, and
many a tear was shed by those
who believed the story true,
and recalled the terrible days
ol years a gone, when the tele
graph cave out the words,
President Lincoln wis shot by
Wilkes Booth while a'tcwlinsr
Ford's theater this eve iinf.'
The news was f-pnt from si reel
to street, from hoinp lo house,
und ilinre was mourning in ihe
city In about an hour niter
I lie firsr disp Ui-h wa3 received,
a second dispntch was bullet
ined to the effect that Mlre
wis no foundation for the first
repor', and in a word, Hie sto
ry ol the murder was si m pi v
a concentrated lie. The crowd
scattered, eyes were dried and
anxious people who thronged
the stree's went home to
spread the good news, feeling
'all's well that en Is well' but
inwardly desiring to kill the
rascal who originated the sell.

HAVE WE A CORPORATION?
The corporate offlctrs of the
village ot McArthur appear to
have the prevailing weakness
in the backbone. They en
deavor to preserve their popu
larity with such scrupulous
care, that it has become so
that individuals obey or disre
gard ordinances just as they
are inclined. Take, for instance,
the paving ordinance: the
Council, in a great splutter,
published a notifications to the
individuals who bad failed to
comply with the ordinance,
and wero going, to pave them
selves unless the individuals
complied with the notice. A
few thought they meant busi
ness and paved. The time
mentioued in the notice came
and went, and those who had
cheek enough to refuse to obey
the notice were lett alone) in
A pound was rented at an
extravagant price, and the
Marshal especially . charged to
enforce the ordinance to pre
vent stock from running at
large, impounding md charg
ing the owner a fee for all stock
so impounded. Quint, law
abiding people whose stock es
caped and fell iuto the hands
of the Marshal walked up, paid
their fee, and redeemed their
stock as the law directed. But
one night a gentleman waxed
wroth at the capture of his
cow, broke the lock, bptned
the gate and drove his cow
home. The Marshal reported
the fact to the.SoIicitor, Mayor
and Council; but no action was
ever taken. The ordinance
was violated with impunity
and iorce, and there was not
backbone enough in the whole
corporate authority, individual
ly or collectively, to attempt
lo vindicate the law, or even
make him pay lor the damage
he had inflicted upon the pub
This week Mr, Nelson Rich
mond's mules, which have been
enjoying the freedom of the
town lor sometime, to the in
convenience of citizens und

c.tele a genuine' sensation. In
these dayn ol carrying water
from neighboring wells there
are few women in McArlhur
who will venture on such an
errand before stopping at lh:'
gate to survey up and down
the street to see it Richmond's
mules are in sight, and the
Marshal has had frequent com
plaints of late about them.
As we said, this week the
Marshal mcceeded in impound

Now, this 13 all mighty men
for Mr. Richmond, and we don't
blam him for getting out of a
bad box as cheaply as possi
ble; but we would like to
know what authority our cor
porate legislators have for en
acting a law in Ibeir official ca
pacity, and rendering it nul1
in their individual capacity?
What right they have to malt
Mr. Richmond an exception t
the law? It a poor widow wo
man must draw on her scant
means to pay the poundage
when her cow is caught rut
ning at large by Ihe Marsha
why shodld Mr.' Richmond b
allowed to go scot' free whe
his stock is captured? Do
our Council call this justice?
Do they expect the people i
approve such partiality?
If we have a corporation ana
laws tuey tnould be respected
and euforced. If we have
nothing of the kind, it is about
time we would quit "playing
town." This thing of making
fish of one and fleth of anoth
er, to use the slang of the
street, is about played out.

Walter C. Hood.
The Marietta Repiater says: "W. C.
Hood, who sold the Marietta Times on
account of severe illness, has been off
duty now for two years. Ilis health,
pnrtially restored, promises to return
to hira fully. He is now on regular,
though light duty, in our office, assist
ing us in striking sundry irons while
they are hot.'' . .
It is to be regretted that Mr. Hood
does not resume his old position on Ihe
Marietta Times. When he was its ed
itor the Times was a paper to be wel
comed, but under its prosent manage
ment it has degenerated fearfulW, and
is now about on a par with the McAr
: McGillivbay and Snivel

ring, are still supplied with of
fice rooms in the Court House,
free of rent, for political ser
vices. It the Commissioners
had done their duty at their
last session they would have
ordered them to hunt new
quarters instead ol fixing up a
dummy Surveyor for one of
them to hide behind.
The editor of the Hocking
Sentinel pretends to believe,
that the State Journal has noth
ing original which is worthy of
attention; yet when he wishes
to advertise the business of
the Sentinel he shows his pood
sense by borrowing the won' a
und Etyle of the Journal.
Ah attractive advertisement
not only notifies tha public
that certain goods ire purchase
able, but stimulates the desire
for acquisition, llowel tells
us in one of his pleasant books
of overhearing a conversation

One of them, speaking of a
common acquaintance, said;
'Isaac will never do to sell
cloil es. He can make a man
buy a coat when he wants one
but he can not make hnn be
lieve he needs one and make
him buy il when he does not
want lo purchase.'' Without
indorsing this criticism in it
moral bearings, it embodies a
truth which all who desire to
open other people's purses
should remember. Spare no
pains lo secure people's alteiij
tion to your object, and do not
expect them to seek it out
