PIKE ROAD MATTERS.
As we purpose to bo'd a neutral po
sition ou the question of Tike Iioadi,
which our County Commissioners have
submitted to the people for their de
termination at the J o Is on the first
Monday in April, we deem it our duty
to place before the people the position
of affairs, as we obtain them from the
Commissioners, and then let the sub
ject drop, and let the people work out
the problem to their own satisfaction,
without being influenced, pro or con,
by any editorial influence wc might ex
ert. In the furtherance of this duty de
volving upon us, we have called upon
Joshua Davis, one of the Commission
ers, and elicited the following inform
ation from him :
First The Coir m'ssioners have de
termined, in case the people decide in
favor of Pike Roads, not to run the
County in debt ; and, consequently,
that no more than the proceeds of four
mi Is on each dollar of taxable proper
ty in the County will b expended by
them in one year, for Pike Road pur
poses. Second The Comraissicnois, having
corresponded with .hose who are and
have beer, managing the construction
of Pike Roads in other counties of
Ohio, have become well satisfied that
the Pike Roads in contemplation of
being built in Morgan county, will not
cost, on an aveiage, more than $3,000
to the mile.
Third That the Commissioners ccn
teiap'ate the most meagre expendi
tureof the Tublic Funds that the cir
cumstances will admit of, to-wit :
'I hey do not intend to build more
than a ten foot, (in width), road on the
ridges, where, in good weather, a dirt
road will answer all purposes ; but,
however, they will make these roads
iu swampy, low ground, about six
teen feet in width. Also, they say that
while it is the intention to make these
roads, in bad places, at least a foot
deep of 6tone in the center, and grad
uating towards the sides ; yet, where
the necessity of the case does not re
quire it, they will use but very little
Fourth That while they have not
yet determined on the policy of issuing
Bonds in expectation of the tax, that
they will make arrangements, by issu
ing due-bills or some other method,
which will be receivable at the County
Treasury for Pike Road taxes, for those
parties, who desire to work out their
Pike Road tax, to do so.
We give tho above matters to the
pub'ic as we get them, and while we
shall give the public all the reliable in
formation we can gain relative to these
matters, we refrain from all com
After the above was put in type, in
looking over our exchanges, we discov
ered the following item in the Pome
roy Cresent, which will, probably,
throw some light on - the question of
the cost of building Pike Roads. We
are not acquainted with the character
of the country through which these
reads run ; nor do we know the char
acter of the roads. We simply copy
the item as we find it :
"The Portsmouth Republican pub
lishes an official statement of the cost
of the Scioto county Free Pikes, auth
enticated by the signatures of the
County Commissioners. The average
cost of the Portsmouth and Galena road
is but $1,6S6 per mile ; the average ccst
of the Portsmouth and Euena Vista
rond is $1,807 per mile; while the high
est do not reach $2,200 per niile. 'I he
Scioto county people have demonstra
ted the fact that free pikes cix be built
cheaply, if they frequently are not."
The insucculence of the American
Physique is largely due to the fact that
the American uses so little liquid food.
The principal forms in which liquid
food is consumed by civilized nations
are the following : Soup, malt liquid,
wine, tea,, coffoe, and milk. Of these
six forms of aliment, the first is the
most important, whether considered
intrinsically as a nutriment, or with
reference to the number of human be
ings who habitually use it. The char
acteristic of European dish is soup ;
that is to say, a large number of Euro
peans makes this a leading article of
diet more than any other article but
bread, the use of which is not peculiar
to Europe. A large majority of the
French, the Germans, the Italians, and
a large proportion of the English are
accustomed to the daily use of some
form of nutritious soup; while among
the Americans, as a people, it might be
said that soup is almost unknown. .
Only among a small proportion of the
residents of our cities is soup a lead
ing article of diet. In the country
and among the poorer city population
it is scarcely ever used.
Population of the Country.
Tho present population of the TJ
nited States has been variously
"guessed" at from 40,000.000 to 45,
000,000, and more sanguine patri
ot talk of 50,000,000 now, 200,000,-
000 within a "generation or two.
Carefully prepared estimates, pub
lished in tho .New York Tribune,
gives 40,800,000 as the probable
population on June 1, 1870, when
the ninth census' is to be taken.
1 his is an increaoe of over 9,000,
000 ; certainly very creditable un
der the circumstances of a decade
of war and political dissensions.
Number of Freemasons.
It is estimated that the Masonic
Society at present contains about
1,300,000 members. Of this numb
er, 150,000 are m England, 100,000
in Scotland, and 50,000 in Iroland.
There are about 600,000 on tho Con
tinent of Europe, and 300,000 in the
United States; the number in In
dia will probably reach 50,000. and
in other parts of tho world ahnnt
50,000 more. The grain of mustard

LETTER FROM WINDSOR.
WINDSOR, March 14th, 1870.
Mr. Kei.lt : For many years past I
have been a patron of our Democratic
county paper. I must confess that un
der your management the Conserva
tive has greatly improved in appear
ance and in its original and select rea
ding matter. It is hoped that the Con
servative is a fixed fact. It will now
commend itself to the confidence and
patronage of the people. Your paper
being much enlarged and also improv
ed in its typography, it is expected
that you will be able to give to your
readers more general and interesting
intelligence from ail quarters, than
you have heretofore, besides keeping
the people posted on the political ques
tions of the day, making a note now
and then of the passing events, local
In this quarter w have but little
news interesting and worthy of gener-1
al promulgation. The times are dull :
and oppressive in the extreme to all 1
interests, and but little hope is indul- j
ged in of any improvement under the .
present political dynasty and rule. j
Iu this long, dreary, wet, and mud-,
dy winter, when every one seems to
have the "blues," something will be got
up to divert the mind aud drive away
On last Friday evening, a grand
School Exhibition was held at the
Uooksburg school bouse, participated
in by graduates and others, under the
management and direction of that pop
ular teacher, Mr. Erannon.
1 he Exhibition was, in all respects,
instructive and entertaining to the
large and generally intelligent and ap
preciating audience, and highly credi
table to those who participated in its
various literary and other exercises.
The most laughable and at the same
time appropriate and instructive scene
performed on the Uooksburg stagfl,
was an original play called "The Fif
teenth Amendment," got up for the
occasion, by some genius cf the neigh
borhood. I will not attempt to describe the ac
tors, their dress, sentiments, Ac., tut
suffice to say, the performers were
some ten or a dozen of white women
and a like number of disguised Afri
cans. The play was well performed, and
was intended to show up and give the
audience to understand how the
"strong minded women" and the ne
groes will do and act ou election day
with the ba'lot in their bands:
It is said that this part of the per
formance somewhat disgusted and dis-
concerted some of our very sensitive
Republican friends who gave audience.
They thought, and some of them so ex
pressed themselves, that "thar was too
much nigger thar."
Well, it is hoped they will get their
(ill of the African. They have made
the bed, now let them lie down in it,
and njoy the sweet repose of unity,
equality, and fraternity. In these de
generate times there is no accounting
for .the peculiar taste and smell of some
politicians. There was a time when,
with certain politicians, it was a pop
ular political and religious pr nciple
and doctrine to advocate the disfran
chisement of alL white men in the V
nited States, of foreign birth and of the
Catholic faith, but now, with the same
men and their political pupels, the Ne
gro, Indian, Chinese, tc, t nfrancliisf
ment is an object to be accomplished
at all hazards, and is the Right Rower
in their political game for power, plun
der and degradation.
I will close, hoping that Spring
time will give us more news and some
thing to write about.

A young gentleman of Lima, Ohio,

entertained a feeling of fierce jealousy,
which culminated, a few nightj n;o, in
a determination to shoot the object of
his bear 's adoration, and then try the
experiment on himself. Arn-ed with
thio grim resolution, and a revo'ver in
his pocket, he started for the residence
of his intended victim. He rang the
bell and was ushered into the drnw

center of the apartment, he assumed
an unmistakbly tragic attitude, and, in
sepulchral tones, begun to trll of his

to have gone mad. The latter closed
