A SPECIMEN BRICK.
We have called the attention of our
our citizens in general to the manage
ment of oat'osntr Tnatters in the last
issues jot' pui jjajje. 'These articles
have j&uaetlnq little iluttering among
the anteriified, and some of our friends
hive called our attention to others of
like ilk. A friend from the country
inferos as of, a cfnau specimen of man
agement inHho . erection of the Cro
ninger bridge' Vhich, In pur ' humble
opinion, is hard to beat. '
The Commissioners - first : made.
contract with Mr. Reiterto build the
abutments for the aforesaid bridge
a stipulated sum. When built, the
. : J. J - : -'
abutments were not wide enough apart
for the span of the bridge, and a new
contract was made to place the abut
merits twelve feet further apart.
The abutments were, by the first
contract, to be built ot stone ot such
olft tmitrxotbg obtained, ana
Rev contract . was made- with Reiter,
by which they agreed to forniah the
necessary machinery.
The abutments' were to be eighteen
feet wide at the top, but when the
bridge, which, was framed at Toledo,
. came, it was found that they must be
twenty feet. A new contract was ac
cordingly made . with Heiter to make
thenx twenty feet wida i--- ;
The abutments, by first contract,
were'tooe ISl feet high'. ' Ynencom-
pieieqp yiey were touna to be too low,
sd eWjjpontraet. hftd to be made
with. HetUer to- bnild them 1 feet
higher. Thus we see five ' contracts
Lay been tmvle'for the performance
. - - -t r- ... ...
ot oe piece of wqrk. . io w many.bar.
gaio, the CommLiHioners jnade with
their friend Yocum for putting up the
bridge, the Lord only knows.
Now, IfTt takes five separate and
distinct contracts to build the abut
ments of a bridge, hoV many contracts
will it require' to build the brid-e
iteelff ' ' - ' 1
Perhaps the "mathematical man'' of
the county cril,.who ciphered up the
late dqfieit in Ahe .county trearory,
would be' willing- to try his 'hand on
the above proposition. ' ' (
The CinciamUi A'nyrirer has labor
ed assiduously ' to' make iV appear
that non. Job E. Stevenson hn bocu
dialpyal during the eafiy- part of the
rebellion, and offered to bring a wit-
Bess, Mr.' Jmo. Redmond, of Cliilli
cothe, to proTe that Mr. S. hoisted a
secession iUg over his residence after
the battle of Bull Uon. But, alas for
this nice little arrangement of the
Enquirer, Mr. Redmoud goes before
a Notary Public and makes oath that
he never heard of uch a thing until
he saw it in ta Enqvinr; that he
has known - Mr. Stevenson well ever
since the war begun, aiid that he fur
ther knows him to have been a true
Union man. .,-.-.-. -
We refer to the above to show to
what straita the Cary Democracy are
reduced, and to. say further that we
are well acquainted with Mr. Steven
son, and that had the Democracy
shown a tenth part of the zeal in assist
ing to put down rebellion that Mr.
S. did, the, war would, have ended
two years sooner, the lives of thous
ands of brave and loyal men saved
V their families, and .millions of
sure saved to Vm country. The
Qg of the f Jintjturtr is of great as-
tstaBoe to Mi. Stevenson. " We hone

THE SOLDIERS' BOUNTY OF 1862
Under the calls of J uly 2d and Au-
gust 4th, 18G2, some two hundred and
fifty men enlisted to fill the quota of
Hancock county. The fall of 1862
was an era in the war : it was the be.
ginning of a draft. Many of our m-
tensely patriotic citizen had no desire
to bo drafted ; and to make up the
number required, they began to tslk
money to men who wanted money
and wore willing to stand between
tie moneyed men of the country and
.the enemy, if they could be assured
' - . . i . : r :i:
Ol mcauu io suppori meir lauiuies,
and give them the little outfit for the
war, which they all required.. (
lu this stale of things, our people
held public meetings and resolved to
give liberally to those who would en
list, lioth in payment 91" nounty anl
for tho support of the families of
thoso who would go. It was in con
temptation to raise the money by sub
scription, and afterward get an act of
the Legislature allowing an assess
ment upon the property of the county
for the purpose ot reimbursing thos
who who would subscribe. No money
was raised by subscription for .-
tus, but the soldiers wore promised
by the Military committees, by sub
committees, and recruiting officers
that they should have volunteer lioun
ty. The Legislature might, in future
authorize collection from the taxable
property of the county ; and under
this promise, they went into the field
confiding in the honor of tho people
aud the Commissioners of the county.
Tho Legislature, on the first
April, ISti:!, authorized a tax levied
to pay' each soldier, who had been
promised a bounty, the sum of .fifty
lollars, with interest, when' the custom
of paying extra bounty had beenlieen
nHtablished. The Commissioners
Hancock county made ho levy, and
neglected totally to pay the bounty
promised. . .
On the sixth of April. 1S66, the
Legislature re-enacted the law of 1 8G3,
rt'jttirmg me commissioners in
the counties to admit the law applied
to levy the tax. there was some
doubt as to tho continuance of the
law,' after tho year 1SG6. The atten
tion of the Commissioners of this
county was called to the law aliout
the latter part of June, 1866. They
appeared willing to pay the bounty
but thought there was a doubt about
their power to do so under the act
ApriL 1866. Bat they said they would
levy the tax at once, whenever they
were satisfied they had the power
do so, under the law as it then stood;
or so soon as the Legislature would
pass an act declaratory of the act
1866, or would rcviso it if necessary,
They united in a petition to the Legis
latnre for such an act. A , bill
iatrbdo'ctd in eachllouec of the
gialaturc, and each House presented
its own Ju)J. but failed looncucjfl
lost: The conatitotionalily of tho
antl also the queation of the power
County fJomuiissioncrs to levy a
to pay the bounties under the law
18C6,was made before the 'Supreme
Court, and, after full' argument,
Court decided tho act constitutional,
and also to be in force to all intents
aud purposes, hinting pretty strongly
at the individual liability of such Com
missioners as had neglected their du
ly under the law. w 1
ur Commissioners were notified
of the decision of the'Court, and
...... j '
quested to make the neceasary assess.
ment to psy the bounties due our
dlera, who had gone out in the fall
18t$J, and they most unequivocally
promised to do so, and I liclievo
tended to do so, nutil the first Alon
day ia Jane, when the levy was to
made, then they most unaccountably
decline to make the assessment, not
withstanding tl'e several Courts, and
the derisions el the Supremo' Court
the records of the' public meetings,
and all' the concurrent fncts ;
pledges of the old Comwisaioners
Ac, wera brought up before them-
they still refused to pay the soldier
hie hard-earned bonnty.. . ,
;', ow.'all this, by , Itself; might
appear : criminal. : or, porhaps, very
culpable, if considered alone; bnt.
ia connerliou with the facts leing
brimght . to light that we have now
three , defalcations within less than
six years : that nearly fifty thousand
dollars have been levied and eol lott
ed for bridgo purposes within that
time,' aud we have not a good bridge
in the county, nor scarcely a safe one;
that it takes about tlS.1100 per annum
to run the county unices, the soldiers
think they ought to have their money
They do not design or deBire to put
their case in politics, nor to piake
political issue out of it, but on the
Other' haiid,; they nave , employed
counsel to vindicate tneir ngnis
eeurt, where they expect redress;
and they would have geu tinmen'
all iiarties understand that they ask
oary their rights, and that they will
have them, or a satisfactory reason
for their being withheld. , .
MANY SOLDIERS.
YOU KNOW.
The tax-ridden farmers of
county wouhl like to know why the
bridge across It) arret) ard River, near
the Presnail Farm, in Amanda town
hip, which' is how and was at the
time of its . completion entirely un
safe for wagons or horsemen. . The
job was accepted by the Commission
ers, and the contractor paid for the
work, now much did the bridge cost?
Who will answer ?
Weak. Lungs can be strengthened
the use of White Pine Compound
is the great remedy for all Pulmo
nary Complaints and Kidney Trou
bles.

Miss Dickiuson'a reputation as one
of the most popular lecturers in the
country will draw public attention to
her novel which l icknor aud fields
have just published. Thoso who have
listened to her eloquent lectures will
turn to her book with eager interest
"What Answer" has a skilfully-
constructed plot, and deals with some
of the most important events of the
late war. The story is one that will
deeply interest those who read simply
for entertainment; the characters,
incidents, and situations will attract
and charm novel-readers: and no
thoughtful person can be uninterested
in the bold aud earnest treatment
which some important political and
social questions receive in this volume.
