Editoi) Fhqdibsbj vFleaso find room in
your excellent paper fot, the following ao
oountofa horrible aitempted robbery and
threatened murder that occurred one night
last week, near Zaleski : The writer of these
lines was riding through a dark piece of
woods in the vioinity of the. "mighty city,'
Zaleski, which I have read about lately in
the "First Book of Chronicles,'' and was
baited by a man who came toward ' me from
behind a tree. I stopped and looked around,
when the daring looking man demanded my
money. . i told him I . had no, money. He
then made great threats, and asked me where
worked, ; I told him I worked for the Za
leski Company, He asked if I. meant the
ZaTeski Furnace Company. 1 I told him I
worked' iW Eseei, e "Chief fig Driver;"
and he said : "Got go I I 1 khow that ue
Pig, Driver, ipjthat town ,. fiat any money."
Therefore I am happy to say that I escaped
unhurt I, think, Mr. Editor, thore is no
danger of any man being jobbed in the very
darkest night if he will cry out that ha is in
the employ of the "Chief Pig Driver." V : I

CHAPTER III.
..Trisinr'and setting of thesnnl to mne
t. . Now it came to pass tbat volar
the reign ot the Second "Chief Rufer" of
11 the city of Zaleski, that the "Utiof
Euler" oommandod all tho "Majon,"
and "Uaptains, ' and "Uaptaina oter
tbouBanda, and "Captains" ' over hand
reds, and the stewards ovor all . the sub-
stacce and possession of the ''Lord," to
OHseuJuia tugoiuvr..
2. And when they bad assembled to
gether, they reasoned among themselves,
and the , "Lord"" stood up on hia feet,
and laid,' Hear, me.' my brethren, my oft
fleers, and my poople: Be it known to
all whom it may conoerr, iut n)ar the
reign or me rirsi vuiei ivuiur oi our
city, the building of many trading houses
was not lawful ; therefore, be it lawful
that we have many houses built of wood
and of brick.
3. And the great multitude answered,
od said: We submit to Xby will and
!aw,0 "Lord." ' ' lJ
4. Then it came to pasB that under
the raien of the Second Chief Rnler of
tho city, that the city very suddely in
creased in large trading houses. ' ;
5. And the "Lord commanded an
tho offioors. and the uiishty men, and all
the strangers from the Old .World, even
from the British soil, to coma together a
second tims. ;
G. Now when Ihey had heard many
things oonoerning the owners of the
many trading house, even the Irish and
the Buckeyes, the "Lord" grew very
wroth and said unto hia officers : The in-
habitants of our city are very wioked and
are determined to dissobey me, ' their
"Ldrd ;" and I know not what to do with
them. ' " ' " ' . ; . .
7. And all the officers answered and
said : Yea, yea, many of the' inhabitants
are very wicked and unlawful. .
8. And it then camo to' pass that
tho city very suddenly increased in BiiAIX
trading houses, which the "Lord" and
his mighty men vulgarly called (in their
wroth) "doggeiies," because the owners'
thereof became very wicked before the
eight of the "Lord," and sold large
cuantitiea of 'dog-leg"1 . tobacco, and
many" barrel! of "rot gut" wines by
small maasuro.' (which the 'LOKD' and
HJs officer"
purchase between the
f Country
rnnnd about, even acoordioe to the laws
and orden of. the Second , Chief Ru!ery
.......,...- i
and ' contrary to the laws or tne rim
Chief Ruler, of alUhe city!
9. For the First Ruler of the city
would not permit low dronkenhoufes
within the bounds of the city ; and so in
the days of the First Ruler Zaleski
was a very sober and sensible city. : '
10. ; But it came to pass that after the
Second Ruler of the city 'permitted the
people thereof to give away their money
to prooure tne means ot taking iwiy
their senses and sobriety, that Zaleski
became inflated witlila sense of her own
greatness, and said, witniu nerseit : "l
am greater than cities around about me."
11.: And the "Lord'. and nil ! of his
Captains and. Maj.trs, again; assembled
together and reasoned imoDg tnemeeivei
and said: uWhat; do ; we here?".. ''Let
na remove, now, the 'Seat of Justice
from McArthur to our own mighty city;
for our city is located upon the Bailroad,
ind that is sufficient reason why wo
should have the 'Seat of Justice" in our
midst. . We will visit all the keepers of
the ereat and small trading booses in the
city and country round about, and. ask
4 Ara! thAiw in i vaswiAirirtfv
lllglu BOOlBl ai ajviu lu iwmvu'if.
the 'Seat cf Justice' to oar city, and if
the keepers will all help, us we will grow
rich by the sale of our city lots, when we
have succeeded is Retting thft.i'Seat of
Justioe' removed to this, out city, and I,
their 'Lord,' will then jbrgive them in
all their wickedness." ; . ,' I
12 . And the S'Lord" arose and said
afoud to all And' Lntheir "Lord"; will
foreive them in all their wiokndnesi
thereof if they even obey their 'Lord'
and aid in; the. removal of the 'Seat of
Justice.' " ; ' ; . -. I : , ..i'.';i V.
,13. v And wheu.tbey: had determined
to have: tbe "Boat ot justice among
them they aought out a '.Legislator.', to
reside within the limits of their , city,
who was a mm whom the Chief liuler
approved, inasmuoh aa he bas long since
now sports in his bat the well-kootrn
"drunkard's brick." ' ' ; :
14.. And this "Legislator, who, sad
to relate, was Oooe a professed ' follower
of Christ snd a preaoher of the Gospel,
hki made himselt notorious oy njcleot
ing to pay over nvto the' poor destitute
widow ind returned soldiers the Govern
ment Claims which he has colleoted for
them, in acc'ordatice with the law of the
land. , . , ., ' , .;.
,15. 1 And it camo to pasa that for the
furtheranoe of the schemo cf removing
tho "Seat of Justice" to' tha city, rei
nowned for allkindi of tuding houses,
nd to faoiliUte the Balo of lots in the
raid city, the Chief Ruler of the . city
purchased an old rnnting rress and
moved it even unto His own mighty city
, 16., Ndw.said Tress' was, altogother
worthy to advocata the interests' of a
whiskv-loving people, aa two of (he form'
er editors who Juve had -it in oharge,
j
have fallen victims to King Alcohol.
'17.- Now it must not be supposedl
tbat the Chief Kuler of the city of Za
lotki ia a visitor ot low drinking estab
lishments, unless, indeed, he might call
there to see if he could get a few votes
in favor of his oouoty seat proieot or
against the good cause of education.
18. Bai as infaliabiltty doos not be
long to mortals, it ia possible tbat the
Chief Ruler ot the city might so far de
part from strict temperance and principles
as to keep something that will stimulate at
His own house, and thus range himself
on tbe side of intemperance immorality.
19, Under ordinary cirounistanceB,
however, the Grog Shop would bo shun,
ned by Him, and the people who oongre
irated there would be pormitted to ap
proaoh bim only through a servant.
20. Now the Lord of Ileaveu and
Earth is humble. He permits all to
come to him and listens even to the cry
of the most degraded'!
21. But the, "British lords" are
proud, and keep poor working people at
a distance, thinking it degrading to la
bor, notwithstanding God' said' to all of
Adam s race: "in tne sweat oi tnyiaoe
shalt thou eat Bread all tho days of tby
life"
' 22. Whether he is best in the sight
of Heaven, who. aocording to soriptural
i.jaootion labors with his hand, or he
who refuses to labor auJ dnspisce tm
who does and would bo a profitable ques
tion fot the great ones of the Earth to
deoido. -

Mb. BowEN : This seven-hilled city
with its tyrant, Nero, one Popinjay Dt
Boots, is the liveliest, jolliest place iu the
State. "Laugh and grow fat," is our
motto. Of course, we drop the tear ot
pity, now and then, when insult is added
to ioiurv. as ia the case of the "Chief
Pig Driver." As this really harmless
person was one day walking down Second
Street, be wis suddenly well nigh; itun

they're ju9t what tbey wero beforo the
simmer, ''hair-brained and insippid."

Mr. Editor : In view of ths pros
posed Constitutional Amendment, I cont
eider it the" imperative duty of every
Democrat in Ohio, to set forth as best be
may, tbe evils consequent upon the adop
tion of tha said Amendment.
A.8 a sample of negro intelligence, ind
naaro resDeol for the founders of the
govercmeot, now a mixed government of
mixed races, once "ine greaiesi govern
ment of all this Earth," I refer you to
Fred. Douglass, the ''Black man with a
white heart" avowed ohampion of rad
icalism.' In a speooh in a western city,
loan audience, ninety-nine of a hundred
of which were white, he said :
"Talk not of your Washington and
Jefferson, they are strangers to liberty;
with one hand they point to liberty,
while with the other they will reach tteir
long bony Gogets into the coffin of the
slave."
; White men of Ohio, mark those words !
Washington and Jefferson Btrangors to
liberty t Fred; Douglass, impeaohing
men, about whom, his colored brain is
incapable of thinking a just ' thought,
because they treated black Blaves bettor
than he . teaohes that white freemen
should be treated! if, Washington and
Jefferson wore strangers to liberty, re
publican governments and republican
institutions are failures; tbe United
Bintea deserve not a place on history's
page, and the army tbat made crimson tho
snow at Valley Forge, that fought at
Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Trenton, ' and
Yorktown against English tyranny aod
atChippawa and New Orleans againat
iD2 lsn enoroaonmencs. was a rioioua
rabble fighting without aim.
If Washington and Jefferson were
stranceiB to libortv. Jackson alo knew
nausrut of liberty, the ebild of radioal
abolitionism ; and tbeir soldiers, whose
deed ; were once themes of household
praise, were an undisciplined mob fight
ing, tbey knew not for what, because the
idea of liberty never once would force
itself upon followers of leaders to whom
it was a stranger.. i',' ZZ ' :! . '.
; If Washington and. Jefferson were
strangers to liberty liberty was unknown
to the world, and as liberty it now, lib
erty is a radical invention, a posthumous
ohitd of rebellion, whose putative father,
raised a wail of ir order, devastation,
desolation, fire, poverty, starvation, hor
ror and blood, in. States whose sunny
clime his dastard foot dared polute.
Born of euob parents, liberty lives,
and where? In five military districts,
that oooe were once ten sovereign states,
onoo self governed, now . ruled by five
8houlder-stiapped: demagogues, whose
word is law, and whose dolight is tyrun
py such as Poland or Ireland never
knew. Russian eerfs before emancipa
tion were free when compared to men
who once wero freemon knowing naught
of liberty, now slaves to a mighty despo
tism, well knowing tbat fairy goddess,
r hum -t- . :
she of liberty,
' Wo do not intend to oause tfao poople
io believe Washington was not a stranger
to liberty wo want dimply to show lib
erty as it exists in tbe opinion (if jsdioal
rulorf, and abolition rumpitcs of the
present day, as taught by Fred. Dpuglais
their redoubted leader and ' mOuilpicoo.
"Time was, but time shall be no muro." . .
"Libei-ty is, but never was before."
Such , is the teachings of the present
day, whence then cometh liberty ? If
liberty is now and never was before, lib
erty cometh from secession, war, Davis,
Lee, Wilks Booth, Libby, Andersonville,
Belle Lie: such being the case, Ander
sonville should be oooBecrated. Wilkes
