Tbe Old and Sew.
With the last number closed the
twenty-second Tolume of the Repcb
Ucas, and to-day we commence with
number one, Tolume twenty-three.
Perhaps a short history of the Repub
lic xx, during the years since it came
Into existence, or really from the
time that the first paper was started
In Plymouth, from which the Reitb
licas sprang, will not be devoid of
interest to our readers.
The first paper ever published In
Plymouth was called the Pilot. John
Q. Howell was Its editor and proprie
tor, and it made its appearance some
time In the summer of 1851. As usual
with first newspapers, it did not pay,
and he sold it to Richard Corbaley.who
changed the name of the paper, and
aent out No. 1, VoL 1, of the Plymouth
Banner. He was not a practical prin
tet, and published the paper, we sup
pose, really to benefit the town and
the county, as he must have lost
money eveiy week. In J ulv, 1853, he
sold the paper to William J. Burns, a
"newspaper man, who had been en
gaged In the printing business most
of his life. Mr. Burns remained in
control of the paper until December,
1851. Tbe paper then passed into the
hands of Thomas B. Thompson, Wil
lLaia O. Pomeroy became it editor.
From that time until March, 1855, it
was published by Mr. Thompson,
James M. Wickiier, and J. L. and E.
A. Thompson. In March, W. J. Burns
again became editor and publisher,
but being unable to pay for tto office,
John Qreer, representing the Repub
lican Central Committee, took the
paper, and some unknown person ed
ited it duritig the campaign of 1856.
On the 9th of October. Ignatius Mat-
tingly purchased the office and took
charge of the editorial department,
and the paper became red-hot Repub
lican. For twelve years the editorial
management of the Retcbucax de
volved on Mr. Mattingly, and he did
a work for the Republican party in
this county aud this district which
few men could have done, and which
was no doubt bat little appreciated by
those most benefitted, an 1 never per
haps fuHy understood by the Repub
licans of the county. In June, 1868.
Mr. Mattingly retired, and D.Porter
Pomeroy became its editor In Au
gust, 1868, John S. Bender became
associated in its editorial manage
ment, and in April, 186'J, became sole
proprietor, editor and publisher, and
continued its publication until July
of the same year, ben Charles F.
Belangee and Wm. M. Nichols pur
chased the office, and secured tbe
services of D. T. Phillips as associate
editor. On the 15th of September of
that year Mr. Belangee died. He was
only twenty two years old, a young
man of energy and ability, and the
paper no doubt suffered a severe loss
by his death. Tbe entire manage
ment of tbe office now fell on Mr.
Nichols. In November 1870, II. L.
Philips b:eame associated with Mr.
Nichols as one of the publishers. Tbe
paper was published by Nichols &
Philips until March, 1871. when Mr.
Nichols retired and left Mr. Philips in
charge of the office.
As the reader may well imagine,
none of those men got rich. The pa
per, with no official patronage, did
not more than pay expenses and
make a living for the proprietors, and
on the 20th of April. 1871, the press
and material of the office reverted
to John 8. Bender. Iu July, 1871, Mr.
Bender sold the office to John Mill!-
kan, an old newspaper man, who for
nearly a quarter of a century had been
connected with the press of North
ern Indiana. But that substantial
encouragement in the way of dollars
and cents, just as necessary to main
tain a good county paper as a good
editor, was not extended to Mr. Milli
kan, and declining years and feeble
health compelled him to retire. He
disposed of the paper to Hon. Jasper
Packard in Jane, 1875. Gen. Packard
being a resident of LaPorte, W. W.
Smith became business manager and
local editor of the RsrcBUccr. This
arrang-ment continued until Occ 1st,
1875. when the Republican was con
solidated with the Mail and MagntU
then owned and published by Howard
Brooke. Mr. Brooke then became
business manager of the paper, aud
remained In the office until April,
1873, when he sold his interest to
Gen. Packard. John Millikan again
took charge of the Republican, Gen.
Packard being the owner and editor
of the LiPorte Chronicle, and still
residing at LaPorte. Io August of
the same year Oen. Packard sold the
paper to Henry D. Stevens, a young
man of considerable ability and good
intentions, but no newspaper experi
ence. The paper was then a nine
column folio, and the expense of pub
lishing It, by a man who knew noth
ing of the business, exceeded the in
come, and he having taken it on trial,
in December it again reverted to Gen.
Packard, who, on the 26th of that
month, sold it to D. E. CaldwelL Mr.
JaIdwell was a man of considerable
energy, but possessed no well defined
principles, except to make all the
money he could. He published the
paper until Feb. 14, 1877, when, find
ing himself becoming rather unpopu
lar, he sold the office to Messrs.
Aiders & Piper. "What the paper has
been since then our readers all know.
Mr. Piper retired on the 1st of Octo
ber, and Mr. Howard Brooke became
conneoted with the office as foreman,
where he still remains.
The Republican Is now the- exclu
sive property of the publishers. There
are no mortgages or liens of any bind
against the office, and after struggling
t!.roucb c rr.r?y rar, scarcely able
to live, yet always furnishing its sub
scribers with the news of tbe county
every week, it Is again established on
a firm financial basis. 8ince takiog
possession of the office we have added
much new material, and of the Re
publican office of ten years ago there
is scarcely twenty pounds of material
left. Most of the material now in the
office Is less than three years old, aud
we have one of the best job offices In
We shall endeavor to make the Re
pcbbicak equal to the best county pa
pers published, and we hope to have
the co-operation of all our sub
scribers and fiiecds throughout the
county. We hope every subscriber
now on our books will renew, and
bring us one new subscriber if he
can. To those who are in arrears we
say, call in and see us, or send us a
note stating what your intentions are.
If you cannot pay all you owe, we
hope every one of you will pay at
least a part. Those small sums
amount to a great deal in the aggre
gate, and will enable us to go on an
other year rejoicing.

It Is reported that a band of Wall
street speculators have organized
to lock up gold In anticipation
of resumption. We hope Congress
will be equal to the emergency and
enact a law that will prevent tbe car

their days of speculation are number

will work bard to defeat its objects.
For a number of days last week
and :he week previous the citizens of
Indianapolis wer excited over the
trial of William Merrick, for the mur
der of his wife, on the 11th of Sep
tember last. After beating the evi
dence and listening to the pleas of
counsel, the jury, after being out only
eleven minutes, returned a verdict of
guilty. The circumstances of the
discovery and crime may be summed
up briefly, as follows: On the 23d of
September, three young men fishing
were attracted to a pile of rubbish by
a horrible stench. A woman's hand
was seen protruding from the sticks
and brush, and an examination re
vealed the fact that an awful crime
had been committed, the body of a
woman and a male child being con
cealed beneath the rubbish. It was
believed that the bodies were the
wife and child of Merrick, and he was
arrested. He acknowledged that he
had taken his wife out to ride on the
night of Sept. Htb, and said he had
left her in the care of a colored wom
an, and had not seen her since. It
soon became known that he that
night poured a white powder into a
glass of wine, which he gave to a
woman in his buggy, and it was also
known that afterward he had a worn
an in his buggy who appeared to be
dead, though he said she was only
drunk. Portions of his wife's cloth
ing were found burned in a stove in
his room; a chemical analysis dis
covered strychnine in the stomach of
Mrs. Merrick. It was proven that
Merrick had bought the drug, and al
together the evidence was so strong
that the jury found him guilty of the
murder of his wife. There are now
three condemned murderers in the
cells of the Indianapolis jail.
Secretary Sherman's Preparations for
Secretary Sherman is making busy
preparation for resumption on New
Year Day. Resumption will not prao
tically begin until the 2d of January,
as it is customary to have Goverment
offices closed up on New Year's Day.
Secretary Sherman this afternoon
sent out a circular to banks and sub
treasuries relating to resumption.
He quotes section three of the re
rumptlon act, as follows.
"Section 3. And on and after
the 1st day of January, Anno Domini
1879, the Secretary ot the Treasury
shall redeem in coin United States
legal-tender notes then outstanding,
on their presentation for redemption
at the office of the Assistant Treas
urer of the Uuited State in the city
of New York, Ic sums of not less thno
