in the Recoud expressing the

State was blessed with a Home
tor Destitute Children like that
in Washington county, express
es the opinion that counties of
the class of Vinton have not
enough wealth to aflVrd such
an institution. The Register
underestimates our wealth.
We speud enough foolishly for

wealth that holds ua back.
Mr. JBundy has made a speech
qu finance in the House which
has attracted considerable no
tice from bis iellow members,
in which he defends the cur
rency of the country; argues
that its amount should be in
creased sufficient to transact
the vastly increased business
of the country. On the sub
ject of a resumption of specie

It wts the evil example of
-one Davis Mackley, the wick
edest man in Jackson, to
gether with the fact that we
were not solicited to do so, that
kept us from signing it. When
we remember that the Editorial
Union meets next at Chilli
colhe; that Gov. Allen resides
there and will probably be one
of the things to be "done" on
that occasion; and how D. M,
who bad cursed whisky up and
down all the hills of Jackson
.as the vilest thing on the face
of the earth, at a previous re
union had tried the tall Sena
tor's old -rye, and how D. M.'s
countenance rose and fell and
rose again aa he got the first
jsraell at his old friend; how bis
total abstinence lips opened
and let in what if taken by a
common Jacksonian would be
"liquid poison;" and how they
smacked and s9id it wa? good;
when we remembered al! .this,
cur heart would have siled us.
True, out of deference to the
solemn company there present
and the well known temper
ance sentiment in Chillicothe,
we refuted to partake; but ii

countenance beamed and spar

WHAT GILMAN THINKS
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
We had the pleasure, recently, of a
talk with h Mr. 0. , who came
to this city from McArthur. Vinton
County, Oliio, where he had a sort of
a club room where a game of cards
could be played, and a drink of whis

woman's war against whinky and
cards. Mr. fl 's description of
the war, as he saw it, is good. lie

Each of the fifty four women came up

I'd get a new soul. Of course I had to
treat' em politely. There was only
one lamp burning in tbe room when
they came in, so I lit another for them
to make it lighter. Thon they took

In regard to the luture of
iron in this country a writer
observes: There seems to be no
limit to- the demand for iron.
Manufactory after manufactory
is established, and still the cry
is for more. That this will ex
tend ipto the futnre there is no'
doubt. Tbe multiplying uses
to 'which iron in lis-various
forms cau be put, insures a d'e
mand for it in this country,
which will continue to grow as
our population increases and
new ways ior utilizing it are
discovered. In a large degree
it no takes the place of brick
and stone in building. It is
substituted for timber in bridg
es, in ships, in the manufacture
ol, vehicles of all descriptions,
and even in the- lighter and
more graceful ornamental work
required by our advancing
tastes. Tbe. demand forfit is
rapidly grqffing and will con
tinue io grow. As timber be
comes scarcer we do pot doubt
that iron will take the place of
wood in thn country as it has in
the town, and be put to a thou

polygamy in progress at Port

with having married Mr. Waite
while her first husband, Mr.

la that she has been mistaken
for Mr 8. Waller. She professes
entire ignorance of the man
who claims to be her husband,
and of the boy and girl who
claim to be her and his
children. These three persons,
Mr. Waller's sister, bis brother
in-law and half a dozen other
persons, swear positively that
the woman used to be Mrs
Waller. Yet she inaintainsjher
plea steadily. The evidence is
overwhelmingly against her,

From the Mt. Vernon Republican.]
A respectable gentleman
Baid: "I am going to move
away from Mt. Vernon." And
why? "Becatiee there are 60
many liquor shops and gamb
ling houses. 1 have two boys;
it is my duly to go where there
will be less temptation." But
where will you go? 'I will go
where professedly respectable
people do not patrouize these
places, as they do here." And
is it so that good citizens are
to be driven from our midst by
a business discreditable, and
because persons recognized by
'.he best society - give counten
ance to the degrading businesb?

Win, U. Hatch was engaged in
