MORGAN TOWNSHIP AND
For the past few years thero bas
been a disposition manifested by a
majority of tho citizens of Morgan
Township and tho Villago of Mc
Connelsville, to eschew party poli
tics in the annual Spring electiors.
This has never been satisfactory to
certain of our prominent local poli
ticians, and has been extremely dis
tasteful to such old party backs as
D. C. Pinkerton, the head and front
of the Radical Ring of Morgan
Cojnty. This year Mr. Pinkerton
determined to "take time by thi
forelock," and, by one bold move
ment, place matters in such a posi
tion that Republicans could not en
ter into any other than a straight
Republican Convention. In ordei
to do this, he B8t himself to work,
wrote out a call for a straight Re
publican Convention, and band
ed it to W. W. Pylo for publication
in last week's Herald, a dale pre-
vious to that of any other move
ment. Pyle was elated with the
idea which Pmkerlon's scheming
brain bad hit upon ; and he, in his
editorial capacity, attached to the
call one of his soul-stirring (!) efTu
sioDs, calling on the Republicans of
this Township atd Corporation to
rally to the last man, in Conven
tion and at the Polls, to thesup
ort of Republican principles.
Evidently, Pinkerton and Pyle
thought there was not a Republi
can m town that would dare say
aught against their project ; but,
by reference to the call for a Cons
vention lound elsewbcro in this pa
per, :t will be seen that the Repub.
Iicans of Morgan Township, as well
as Democrats, are not to be con
trolled m matters of local import
ance by the edicts of old political
backs and schemers. If thej' do
vote their party principles in State
and National matters, they have
demonstrated their intention of be
ing independent in matters which
relate to home interests exclusive
ly. We would not be surprised to
see the Herald making another of
its humiliating apologies in this
week's issue. They say that "D.
C. is as mad as a fly," but the pro
minent Republicans only fay
"Shoo I" when he "bodders" tbcra.

If wo begin to license wrong, wc

whole Satanic host, every imp. Chris
tianity is not ready to do this. Is not
rumselling a crime against property,
against life, against mora's, and against
religion ? I he intense criminality of
rumielling has been pjoved so many
times, and the proof is so overwhelm
ing, and the facts are so appalling, that
not only a madman or a very ignorant
man wi 1 now rise up to deny the as
sertion that rumseUing is the worst
crime now in this country.
The support of a temperance ticket,
of the most radical sort, should be ur
ged on the general ground of the worth
of the temperance idea, and the abso
lute necessity of givirg that idea a
prominent and a living page on the
statute book. If alcohol does more
mischief than anything else in the
country, and who can doubt it or dis
prove it, it is the duty of every voter
to put in a temperance vote into the
ballot box every time it is opened.
TJie above call was not presented to
a great many of our citizens because
of the inability of those circulating it
to possibly to cTo se-in the short time
allotted to them it was in circulation
but a little over one day. Every voter
that espouses-tke cause set forth in the
call, is invited to attend the Conven
tion and participate in its action.

Once upon a time, when Judge Pru

Donn Piatt, then lawyer, now profess
ional satirist, undertook to make game
of the gallant Col. Sullivan, a well
known Irish attorney of the Cincinnati
bar. Donn was funny, very funny,
and the laugh was on Sullivan until at
last he propounded this remarkable
theory in regard to his friend and
pitcher: "Gentlamin," he Baid to the

which might have been anticipated.
Wc published a few days ago the
proceedings of a large meeting in
Iowa, at which strong resolutions
were passed in favor of casting off
the entire burden by repudiation.
In Williams county, Ohio, one bun
dred and eight voters have just
put their names to a declaration of
the same purport; and, as the mon
etary stringency increases, and the
"hard times" are daily getting har
der, through the prostration of bus
iness, the disposition to discuss that
severe remedy for a prodigious evil
is becoming more general, uftd hun
dreds are everywhere mustering
into the ranks of the "wet-sponge
battalion." Will the bondholders
take warning from these suggestive
''signs of the times," and reduce
the prcssuro which is crashing oat
tho industrial energies of the peo
ple ? We Bhall seo ! Enq.
The Xew York Tribune is highly
pleased with the prospect that'there
will bo no unnecessary haste in the
reduction ol other than the income
tax, and that there will bo no fur
ther inflation of the currency."
Nothing gratifies that paper 60
much as to keep the screws tight
upon the business and industrial in
terests of the country. Any relief
by tho reduction of taxation, or by
tho furnishing of more monetary
facilities, would causo it the great
est pain. The people have Ion:
perceived that there was llua hasto''
in taking off their taxes. They
don't come offnear as quick as they
went on. Nothing is being dono
even with the oJioub income tax,
and, so far as any ono. can perceive,
we are threatened with it as a piece
of pcrmaneat legislation. The idea
of our New York cotcraporary is
that the publio is a huge lemon,
which is to be squeezed for the ben
fit of the bondholder and the New
England manufacturer. To reduce
our taxes, to give tho laborer a
ebance to better bis condition,
might, perchance, lower the price
of bonds and diminish the gains of
the Yankee monopolists. That
would be terrible, and, of course, is
not to be entertained. Cincinnati
THE FIRST STAR-SPANGLED
AC a stated meeting of the Historic
al Society of Pennsylvania, in Phila
delphia, on Monday evening, William
J. Canby, Esq., read a paper on "The
First Star Spangled Banner made in
America, and who made it."
The paper contains and interesting
tradition now first published, well pre
served in the family of Mrs. Elizabeth
Claypoole, to the effect that this lady
(whose name at that time was-Boss,;
was the first maker and partial design
er of the flag of the United States.
The house where the first flag was
made is stated to be still standing at
No. 239 Arch street, be'ow Third, a lit
tle two story and attic tenement, for
merly No. 89, aud first occupied by
Mrs.- Claypoole, whose maiden name
was Griscom. when she was the widow
of her first husband-, Mr. John Ross, a
son of Eev. Earieas Boss, once assist
ant minister of Christ' ChuTch in this
city, and afterwards at New Cast'e,
in Delaware, and a nephew of Colonel
George Ross, a signer of the Declara
tion of Independence.
A Committee of Congress, of whom
Colonel Ros3 was one, accompanied by
General Washington, in June, 1770,
called on Mrs. JVss, who was an up
holster, and engaged her to make th
flag from a rough drawing, which, ac
cording to- her suggestions, was re
drawn and somewhat altered, by Gen
eral Washington himse'f, then and
there in her back parlor. The flag; as
thus designed, was made by Mrs.
Ross; and adopted by Congress, and" j
was the first Star-Spangled Banner that J
ioated upon the breeze. Mrs. Koss re
eived the employment of the flag ma
ting for the Government, and contin
led it for many years. She was mar
ked to Captain Ashburn, who died in

.olution, a lineal descendant of Oliver
A writer in the Salem Gazette Bays a
)ine tree, twenty lec t in height, and
en inches in diameter at the base, has
grown upon the so'id rock in Bever'y,
!assachusetts, and, as it grew, unable
to obtain moisture and support from
the rock or to penetrate its surface,
sent out its roots for supplies. These
traveled twenty or more feet over a
rocky ledge until they reached a
swamp, and from thence the tree has
been built up. These roots, where
they run over the ledge, are three or
four inches in circumference, and of
the same color as the rock, so that
they can scarcely be distinguished
The New York Sun says thnt it
is possible that the steamship City
of Boston has been run down by
some British mail steamer, whose
captain forgot to mention it on his
arrival in port. It might be well
to ask some of the British captains
if they did not feel a blight jar at
any time during their passage.
