WRITTEN BY SOME OF 'EM.
1 And it oaiuo to pass, in the history
of the city, as it was written, that inas
much as the Historian was "abusing"
the "Lord," that some of his friends
sondeth unto the "Lord" one of the
newspapers containing some of the His
tory, as written about turn.
2 And when it had arrived at the
city, and at the office of bira whose busi-
noes it is to take onarge ot tne same, u
seemed a matter of duty to send the
paper along with the other portion, of
the "Lord's" mail matter. ,
3 And the officer, whose surname is
Will, being an old man. and having
from his earliest day, learuod to oonfer a
favor when in bis power so to do. tnougnt
it no harm to thus send unto the ''Lord"
all of his mail matter.
4 And it never entered into his mind
to think that the same would offend the
5 And the "Lord," when he reoeiv
eth the paper wbioh a kind friend send
eth unto Him, and it being the same that
contained the "Ohronioles," he taketh
the same and eeatoth himself in the
great armihajr, and began reading the
History as written.
6 And it soon ecemeth unto the
"Lord" that tbe Historian still continues
to tell the truth in all that be says con
cerning the city, the "Chief Pig Driver,"
"Peter Plumfull," and the "Lord."
7 And it now began to be very plain
unto those standing near by, that the
"Lord" was becoming sore . vexed, and
was full of wroth, .
8 And the "Lord" sccmeth spell
bound, and oould not so much as take
bis eyes from the same, but continuoth
9 And tbe more lie read ot tbe same,
the more He became convinced of tbe
truthfulness of the History.and still His
mind becometh more and more attraotod
10 And He still growing more wroth
and wondering who it is, that hath gained
suoh perfect knowledge of the doing of
the mighty oily, and then dare to stand
up in the light of this intelligent age,
and write the same in the plain, simple,
and soripture-trutb-liko manner, the
thought booamo too great for bis capao
ity. . ..
11 And the "Lord" before He had
ended reading the same beoorceth full of
wroth, and he eonoewiog that he was so
thoroughly oaptured thereby, and Drougni
in subieotioa thereto. He resolves to
make one desperate effort to relieve him
self from the Iron grasp of the History.
12 So when he bad tally pursuaded
himself bow he oould best relieve himself
from this sudden delusion, he raiseth up
straight on bis feet, and with all the
power and dignity at bis, command, ne
threw the History from himself against
the wall, with suoh foroe in his anger,
that the truthfulness of tbe History
causeth it to rebound back unto the
"Lord's" feet, where it ley crouched at
tbe feet of sovereign power.
13 And in tbe meantime a still small
voice came up from tbe same, saying:
"Truth is mighty and wiif'1 prevail.
Though truth be trodden down as I now
am yet shall it rise again."
14 And when the "Lord"- beareth
this, He oommandolh one of His' young
lads, even bis mail lad, to take the same
back unto tbe man of kindness, ,in tne
mail department, and inform him that he
did not wish to bo so insulted by having
the "Uhronioles" sent unto him, nor to
have his peaceful and quiet repose desi
turbed by reading the same.
-15 For it doth seem utto me the
"Lord," that when my eyes have oaught
tight of the History that I am not eon-
tent until 1 read the same.
16 And further, my young lad, I
command; you to inform him,' whose
surname is .Will, and who hath charge
of the "Post Offioe," that for so doing I
shall report him to the department at the
oity of Washington, afar off, and will
visit my wratb upon mm and bis cmw

Taxes and Mone interest The
average rate of taxes in Ohio is two per
cent, on the ssaessed valuo of property
listed. The lawful interest of money
being six per onnt; one third of tbe in
oome is taxes. It is the same with rente.
One-third of the rent is oonsumed in
paying taxes. The people who wish to
shirk the payment of taxes call in their
debts and put their money in Govern
meet bonds, and the taxes thev shirk are
borne by other people. Mr. Sham Loyal
has one hundred and fifty dollars in Gov
ernment bonds, and saves three thousand
dollars a year in taxes, whioh his neigh,
bors have to pay for him. This is tbe
case with our State and county taxes.
But to enable the United States to let
the bondholder go free oftax, the people
have to bear a tax on everything they
wear, every thing they drink, and every
thing they eat, and every thing they do.
They must pay twenty millions a year to
tho Chase-bonds for the trouble of giv
ing us three hundred millions of shinr
plaster money. They must pay one hun
dred and twenty millions a year to keep
an army, black and white, at the South,
to give the peoplo republican governi
moor. The bonds must bo taxed must
be taxed, and taxed, and taxed at the full
rate of one third of tho interest, as the
people of Ohio are taxed. And we must
have a Legislature that will represent
the people, and not aot as mere toadies
to a whisky Congress. Urbana Union.
Orrn Financial Future. The New
York Times, in discussing our financial
condition, has but one panacea for our
troubles. That is the faithful and hon
est collection of the tax on whisky
This is a superficial view of the question,
and does not at all go to the root of the
matter. No doctoring will avail to re
lieve the people as long as we are bun
doncd with the national debt. We must
pay off the debt at onoe, and stop all that
vast interest which ronders oppressive
taxation necessary. It can be paid im
mediately, in tha legsl-tonder ourrency
of the country, in which all other debts
are paid. Tbis measure and this alone
will give financial ease and repose to tha
country. Tbe Times proposition merely
looks to paying the interest on the bonds.
Ours would pay the priooipal, and so get
rid of any interest at all. Our plan is
in the interest of the masses ; that of the
Times in the interest of tbe bondholders.
