THE LATE DR PERLEY B.
last Monday morning, at seTen o'
clock, Dr. Perlst Broth Johxsox died
at the residence of his son-in-law. Hon.
F.W.Wood, in this Tillage, at the ad
vanced age of seventy-one years, five
months and three days.
Dr. Johnson was born in the Block
Bouse, in V arietta, Ohio, on the 18th
'of September, 179S. lie read medicine
with Dr. John Cotton, of Marietta, and
commenced practice with him in 1822.
In 1823, he located himself permanent
ly in JfcConnelsville, where he has ev
er since resided, following his profes
sion and filling many important posi
tions of honor and trust up to the year
1847, when he was overtaken by dis
ease, paralysis, which rendered the last
twenty-three years of his life a mere
On the 6th of December, 1825, he was
united in marriage to Miss Mart Mak-
CBESTca Dodge, by whom he was the
father of five children, four of whom
are now living; the deceased one, Per
ley B. Johnson, Jr., having lost his life
at the charge of Fort Wagner, July 18,
Dr. Johnson's political career began
soon after his location here, and he was
for many years the leader of the Whig
party in this county. The first office
he held was that of Clerk of the Court
of Common Pleas, to which position he
was appointed in 1825. He was elected
a member of the State Legislature in
1834, serving one term. In 1840, when
Harrison carried Ohio and was elected
President, Dr. Johnson was one of the
Presidential electors. In IS42, he was
elected to Congress over the late Dr.
Samuel A. Barker, and served one term,
lie was nominated as a candidate for
re-e'ection in '44, but was defeated by
Isaac Parish, Esq. the Democratic cand
idate. This ended his official life, but it
did not take away from him his inter
est in political matters, or destroy his
influence as a politician, lie was, un
til impaired by disease, looked up to
by the Whig?, of this county, as their
ablest oracle, and regarded by the
Democrats as a man whose influence
and power was not to b ignored. Oe
possessed, to a remarkable extent, that
' ever essential characteristic of a suc
cessful and influential politician the
power of making friends. Everybody,
as we are told by men of his day, liked
Dr..Johnson. Ue was free, and easy,
and polite in his manners, and remark
ably pleasing with every one he met.
As a political speiker, he possessed no
unenviable reputation in his days of
active life, as we have been accustom
ed, ever since our earliest recollection,
to hearing Old line Whigs sound his
praise in this particular, and often as
sociate his name with such men as
As above stated, he wa9 attacked
with paralysis in 1847. He had five of
these attacks at intervals the last in
1851. In 1849, he had been so afflict
ed, mentally and physically, by his dis
ease, that he was rendered incapable
of transacting any business during the
remainder of his life. Since 1S51, his
impaired constitution has been yie'd-
ing very gradually, but surely, to the
ravages of time.

MORE ABOUT THE INTERNAL
Ov last Saturday, Assistant Internal
Revenue Assessor, Andrew Kahler,
asked us if we would publish a state
ment of the business done by him, ex
officio, furnished by himself. He said
we had published erroneous statements
relative to the assessments made by
him during the months of February
and March. 1869, but that we were right
as to the pay he received for his ser
vices during those two months. He
said, also, that he had been waiting for
us to get through with what we had to
say on the subject, and that he then
intended to give the people the facts in
the case. - We told Mr. Kahler that if
we had been in error, we would be
glad to correct it, 'and that we would
be very glad to publish his statement.
As yet, he has not made his appear
ance, and we conclude he intends to
make his own paper the organ of his
defense, and that his statement will
appear in this week's issue of that pa
per. Ve have to say that our statements
relative to this matter were taken off
the Deputy Collector of Internal Kev
enue's books, as the returns made by
this same Andrew Kahler for the
months above mentioned. We have
further to say that Andrew Kahler re
ceived a reprimand, through District
Assessor Woodbridge, of Marietta, from
Columbus Delano, Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue at Washington, D. C,
some time last Fall, for charging for
his services as Assistant Assessor more
per month than his Assessments am
ounted to. We have further to say
that the system of taxation, known as
the Internal Revenue System, as at
present carried on in this District, and,
for all we know to the contrary,
throughout the length and breadth of
the land, is but a system of legalized
robbery, which is oppressing the peo
ple for no other purpose than that of
sustaining in place and position certain
old party hacks, who seem to think
themselves born for no other purpose
than to fill fat offices. The truth is,
that of the whole of the enormous sum
paid by the people" of this District in
the shape of Internal Revenue taxes,
(excepting that derived from Stamp
duties of one kind and another and that
paid by the National Eanks, all of
which we may say the Assessors have
nothing to do with), there is probably
not a dollar of it that goes into the Na
tional Treasury. It all goes into the
pockets of official leeches, who do not
do enough real labor in their official
character, to earn for ihem, in any or
dinary pursuit, what would average
them seventy-five cents a day each.
And, yet, while this is true ; while our
faimers, mechanics, and business men
are toiling incessantly to provide their
families with the comforts of life, and
o pay the tax-gatherer, most of them
not earning more than one dollar and
fifty cents a day, and a great number
not more than one dolar ; these leech
es are making the people pay them five
and ten dollars a day each, for sitting
by a good fire, telling jokes, and occa
sionally scribbling down on Uncle
Sam's paper the amount of A and B's.
income, or the fact that C. has a gold
watch. It is high time that such out
rages as this are ventilated; and that
the men, who are fattening on legal
ized stealings off the industry of the
country, should be laid bare in their
iniquity. As far as Mr. Kahler is con
cerned, we will say that we do not
know that he has gouged the Govern
out of any more money than other men
filling the same positions in other coun
ties. We do know, however, the facts
above stated, and those heretofore sta
ted in other artie'es, to be true; and if
they reflect upon the gentleman we
cannot help it.
D. H. MORTLEY & CO.
This firm has created some littlo
sensation amongst buyers and sell-
ersof Groceries, in our village, with
in tbe past two weeks. They hare
circulated; extensively, hand-bills
announcing their determination to
do a strictly cash business, and to
retail groceries at prices far below
those that have been customary
here. This week their advertise
ment appears in the Conservative,
and its readers will see the induce
ments they offer to those, who pay
cash, to deal with them. We bare
taken tbe trouble, on invitation of
John W: Pinkerton, junior partner
in the firm, to look through their
stock, and we feel justified in say
ing that they are selling just the
quality of goods they advertise.
Mr. Pinkerton tells us, also, that
persons desiring to purchase arti
cles in less quantities than a dol
lar's worth will be accommodated
at the rates advertised. That is to
say, you can purchase one pound of
anything as cheap, per pound, as
you can to purchase in quantities of
a dollar's worth. Notice their ad
vertisement. SST Encourage every one, espe
cially now men, to come and settle
among you ; particularly those who
are active and worthy, wheiher
they have capital or not. Their la
bor alone is worth money. Those
who have capital will buy lots, and
build houses or tear out and re
model the old ones. Go to work
and stimulate every legitimate en
terprise by giving it all the encour
agement you can or by uniting your
industry, influence and capital in
the common caase. Caltivate a
public spirit and talk less than you
work. Help your neighbor. If be
is in danger of breaking down, prop
him up in some way, either by kind
words, good counsels, or a lift from
your pocket book. Encourage your
local authorities in making public
improvements for the good of town.

whereupon Eoberts remarked that
he did not do business that .way.
One word brought on another, and
in a few moments Eoberts stepped
from behind the counter and struck
Kennedy, knocking, him down and
breaking his neck in the fall. Ken
nedy was then conveyed into a back
room, where he died almost instant

however, before the facts of the af
fray became known to those outsido
of the room, and in tbe meantime
