LOCAL MATTERS.
RAILROAD.
Work did not commence ou
the railroad last Monday as was
anticipated, partly because ol
the inability ot Mr. Kirkpat
rick, -Superintendent, to leave
the work at GaVjpolig, and
partly because of some trouble
about securing the right of way.
Mr. K. will, however, commence
work here in about two weeks
In the meantime the company
wi&h to know how many teams
can be obtained in this county,
so that they will know how
many to bring irom Gallia
No teams will be employed
that do not belong to subscrib
ers to the stock, or that will
take a part of their pay in the
stock of the company. Plenty
of teams can be obtained on
these terms, but the preference
will be given to teams belong
ing to Vinton county il im
mediate application is made
by letter to MrLangley, at
Oallipolia.
Suicide.
A MAN named WeBley Dilworth
cut bis throat with a razor, last
Tuesday, at the residence of
Nicholas Allman, lie had been
oq a drunken Bpree for several
days at Prattsville; and was pro
bsbly on his way home, when he
stopped at the house above men
tioned, Bet down his valise by the
door stepj opened it and took nut
the instrument, walked around
the house and deliberately com
mined the horrible deed. Mrs.
Allman was at the house when he
stopped, she suppjsed he was
taking a match out of the valise
to light his pipe, but soon found
him in the reur of the house in a
fainting condition. Medical as
sistance was procured, and the
man, at last accounts, waJ still
alive. He is a wildower and
hts three small children who are
living with their grandparents
and relatives of their m'othor.
During the lifetime of his wife he
was a good prosperous citizen,
but at her death ho took to hard
drinking, squandered his proper
ty, and has finally en led with suicide.
Many new ore veins are be
i tig opened and new discover
ies in iron ore are being made
every day. Burnet Hook laid
a very fine specimen of lime
stone ore on our table thin
week. By the way, we invite
all those having ore or coal
veins opened to bring speci
mens to this oflhe, with a de
scription of the same. The
real estate market is getting
very active, many persons are
cnuiii)r here looking after our
minerals, and it is to our inter
est to have them invest, as it
will bring additional capital
into our county. There is no
place in McArthur where spec
imens ol or or coal may be
seen, and an idea of itscharac
ter and extent be ascertained.
If our people will bring us in
specimens we will label them
properly and exhibit them in
our office for their benefit. We
imagine a specimen Irom each
of the coal and ore vieus gath
ered into one collection would
open the eyes of some of our
own people as to what we have
in our hills. '
A prominent wholesale liq
uor dealer of this district made
the remark on our street last
week that Major Uherington
would r'in behind bis ticket in
Lawrence county, because
when Prosecuting Attorney of
that county he put some liq
uor dealers through who had
Veen violating the law. We
think the gentleman mistakes
the temper of the people ot
Lawrence as well as the dis
trict when he attempts to
bring anything ol that kind
against Major Oherington or
any other man. When it comes
to the liquor dealers, or any
other class of people, rombin
ing against the Judiciary to
coutrol it to their own benefit,
against the law. we imagine
they will find ihe people about
solid egainst their combination..
II on. Harvey Wells has se
cured a conditional purchase
of the farm ot the Hon. II. S.
Bundy, near Uamden, aud oth
er property, in all several
thousand acres. This tract o
land, when developed is, to
present appearances, undouht-
edit t?i richett tract of land in
the United States. It has been
demonstrated that the Jackson
vlen of coal underlies the
whole section at a distance of
from 36 to 70 feet, and the hills
are teeming with ore. Right
here iron can be made cheaper
than any place in the world,
for here the fuel and ore are
together in unexhauslible
quantities. England, with her
cheap labor, will never be able
to compete with this tract ol
land with its cheap fuel and
ore. The time is not lar dist
ant when scores of furnaces
will here be turning out their
metal, pouring wealth into the
laps ol'lheir owners,and Bundys
beautiful farm be transformed
into an active, bustling city
the Birmingham ot America.
This coal and ore has remained
unused too long, while other
and more expensive means
were employed to make iron.
It needs but a fair presenta
tion of the facts already dem
onstrated to secure the atten
tion of capitalists. Mr. Wells
knows its value and knows
how to present it.
Wuen the accident occurred
last week in Hamilton county,
on the M. & 0. R. K., by which
lour men were killed, the Cor
oner ol that county immediate
ly summoned a jury, which on
investigation, found the en
gineer and conductor of one of
the trains guilty of crimnal
carelessness, and recommend
ed their arrest and prosse
cution. . Wnen an accident
occurred near Vinton S'a
tion not long since the Cor
oner ol Vinton county came to
the ground, considerably the
worse for the liquor of which
lie had paitaUn, before the
bodies were removed,' but he
didn't see that he could be of
any service until he learned
that one of the dead men hud
some money in his pocket. He
vaiUed to take that, but for
tunately was prevented by an
officer of the road. That is
about a fair specimen of how
Vinton county's public officers
have been caring for the in
terests of the people, under
the rule of the ring..
FKfiM filty to sixty wagons
are engaged in hauling ore
irom the immediate line of the
proposed line of the O., McA.
& C. R It., to Vinton and sta
tions on the M. & C. K. 11. II
the Vinton Furnace line is
adopted by the directors oflhe
O., McA.& 0. II R., we would
not be surprised if it was ptlilk
ed through, ironed and equip
ped from Swan township to
Vinton Furnace within a few
months. There is business
enough now being done by
wagons to make even this lit
tie strip pay without any out
side business.

County Sunday School Convention.
In pursuance of a call the
Executive Committee of the
Vinton County Sunday Schools
held a meeting in McArthu,
on Saturday, August 30th, for
the purpose of completing ar
rangements for the county cel
ebration on Friday, September
19th. A portion of the com
mittee were absent, which was
regretted because or-the im
portance of the meeting. How
ever, it is believed' that they
were detained Jon' account ol
business, and. not for, want of
interest in the annual-celebration.
The committee1 agreed
to extend an invitation to Hon.
H. S. Bundy and Prot W. II.
Scott, President of- the Ohio
University, to address the peo
ple on that occasion The dis
tinguished gentlemen will un
doubtedly r3spect the invita
tion, and may be expected to
be present, if not prevented
by reason of previous-engage
tuents. Other gbodHpeakers
will be secured for the occa
sion. The McArthur!.- Brass
Band has been invited, and the
Zaleski and Mt. Pleasant Bunds
will be invited to furnish ex
cellent music for the occasion.
Prof. J. U. Uuhck also has
promised to be present with
one of hi? celebrated Estey or
gans. The committee decided
to present the largesf individ
ual school present at the cele
bration, with the "banner
awarded to the Locust Grove
school last year. ' We ara au
thorized to say that thlii prom
ises to be the largest celebra
tion ever held in Vinton coun
ty. Reports received from va
rious parts of the counly shows
that the people are alive to the
Sunday school work, and .are
preparing to participate in the
celebration oh the 19i(i bf Sep
H. W. COULTRAP,
Secretary.
We purposely omited!to say
any thing about the township
banner in- the j. notice'ot the
county, oelehralion irri. -to
the county "papers "tbi? week
lor the purpose"' oV'confering
with the absent members of
the comtcittee in regariTio it.
But we have since seenother.
members of the committee,
and are authorized to announce
that a prize ' banner will be
awarded to the largest tqwn
ship delegation according to
its population that is present.
Each Superintendent through
out the county is reqWled to
raise 50 cents or a dollar' to de
fray the expense of getting
Ihe banner and other necessa
ry expenses of the celebYation,
and report the same (o the
Secretary. . Mr Rnb.srt B irn

also been invlied to address
H. W. C.
J. G Huffman who was here
a 6hort time since- as the at
torney in the Sweeney,-Brown
township . pauper case,' has
been nominated as the Demo
cratic candidate for Prosecu
ting Attorney by the Deriioi
crats oi Perry. He will doubt
less be elected, is a -clever
gentleman, and will make a
good officer.
A little son of Samuel
Trimmer died last Thursday,
and was buried in the new
cemetery, being the first inter

fourth child Mr. Trimmer has
lost within a lew years, having
bad three lying dead in the
house at one time from measles.

BIRTHS.
In McArthur, August 3uth, to Mr.
and Mrs. J. W. Bo wen. a on.
Tacking Before the Wind.
Mr. Allen in his speech of
acceptance a tew weeks since
defended the course of the
Democratic party during the
war, by declaring that it was
necessary to 'restrain the on
bridled fury of the opposition''
(meaning the Union people)
and check their spirit of bloody
revenge. The press of- the
State h?s convinced Mr. Al
len that that speech was a
mistake. He spoke again at
Columbus last Friday, taking
the other tack, abusing Gen.
Grant for appointing to an Of
fice, Gen: Longstreet, a re-constructed
rebel who has tried to
behave himself since the sur
render, and induce the South
ern peopU to do so,1 too, and
declaring that no Democrat
would have appointed an ex
rebel to office.
We are afraid Mr. Allen has
forgotten his restraining pfinci
pies since the rebels werew hip
ped. Won't some person curb
the old gentleman? If bis spir
it of bloody revenge isn't
checked we are afraid some
person will he hurt!
