- There muat be a raisunder

passage of the' "new license

is opposed to license. Patrick

HORTON'S CORNET BAND WILL BE
To Editor of the Vinton Record.
I am pretty well convinced
of the truth of the doctrine of
total depravity ot human na
ture, and another fact I have
observed growing oat ot this
deplorable state of thingsje,
th it some callings are better
nurseries ot human depravity
than others, and some men that
are pretty Shrewd get to think
they know it all and undertake
to do things and find 'hem
selves whittled oft to a very
small point. Though ' a com
parative stranger I found my
self at a temperance meeting at
McArthur, on the 23d of July,
1874, and saw .A cise of this
kind very forcibly illustrated.
The person referred to may be
the same that wrote the arti
cle in the Record, July 30tb.
That article is a'misrepreseiita
lion from, beginning to end so
far as it referred to tbe princi
ple agent and speaker, Dis
seMe. Tbe latter u a very good
lecturer and I soppoie cut the
writer rather loo closely for his
stomach's sake and his other
infirmities and did not miss
some others of the same craM.
On the Evening referred to by
the writer the audience Was
large and attentive to the last,
adjourning about 10 o'clock,
not a very late hour for this
time of the year. Prof Mills
made some good remarks and
was followed by the Rev. Dis
sette, and so far as I have
heard gave good satisfaction to
the temperance people in at
tendance, and I have not heard
one true man that wa present
say that he wonld vote for li
cense. If the writer of the ar
'icle referred to wan in favor of
license, why nut discuss . tbe
subject fairly and honorably, as
every subject should be dis-cusse.1?
OBSERVER. Tragical Result of an Attempt
at Tarring and Feathering.
' Boston, Aug. 2. A special
from Oak Bluffa lo tbe Adver
tiser says there has been a good
deal of scandal in connection
with a Mr.Vincer,ot Edgarton,
and S. K Eilioti, of Worcester;-1
who have occupied a cottage in
company with two married wo
men belonging to Edgarton.
These men have been threat
ened with a coat of. tar . and
leathers, and Vincer, fearing
trouble, left the Island some
weeks ago.' Last evening a
partyot- men .went to the cot
tage and called out Elliott A
ter some struggle they forced
bim into a wsgon in which, was
a pot of tar and a bag of feath
ers. Elliott -drew-a revolver
and fired twice, tbe second shot
killing Caieb. Smith, a brother
ot i he two women. , The report
of ( the pistol frightened the
horse, which ran away and
threw the whole party frm tbe
wagon.' Elliott escaped and
surrendered himself to tbe au
thorities. Intense excitement
prevails in consequence ol tbe
aflair.';'- ; ' ' - : Vy"

Wi published the proposed
new. Constitution .some time
since, but it was before public
opinion was aroused upon the
subject, and we have reason to
believe that it was considered
dry reading and was neglected.
There is now a demand for the
document, and we re publish it
in the Irotn of an extra. Let
each individual read for himsell
and decide upon its merits with
out regard to any parly feeling
which designing persons seek
to arouse. .The election oc

This is the latest: Two
thieves, well dressed, of course,
enter a jewelry store and open a
conversation with the watch-mak
er. Presently a customer enters.
He wants his watch repaired.
The conversation of the custom r
furnishes tbe rascals with the
number of the watch, the repairs
to be done, and the time it will
be nuished. On the day tha
watch is to be ready, a boy cats
at the jewelry store and presents
an oroer for the watch. As the
order contains a full description
of the watch, and is accompani-
ed by. the money, the jeweler has
no reason to refuse to deliver
tbe article. When tbe owner
calls he is minus a time-piece.
It is a Boston idea.
