- Hon. E. II. Moore has writ
ten a letter to some of his liadical
friends in Marietta, in which he de
clines a rcnomination for Congress.
The Maricttian, of last Siturday,
says of this movement:
It was neatly done. It was cate.
The moft experienced political man
agers could not have done it better.
Thi3 was pocmmgly tbo way of it.
Tbreo of our leading citizens, of the
Kepublican persuasion, foreseeing
that thero would bo a strong oppo
sition to the further representation
of the Marietta District in Congress
by Hon. E II. Moore, "took the re
sponsibility, of addressing a note to
that gentleman, requesting the use
of his name for a rcnomination.
This was quite an unprecedented
procedure 6ofaras we are acqiuint
ed with 6uch matters, and to judge
from our standpoint, was designed
to afford our Congressman a good
opportunity, which he quickly seiz
ed, to havo "business engagements'
of such character t hat ho could not,
in ''justice to himself," allow "his
name to be used." So, Mr. Moore
is smoothly ruled out. Now, gen
tlemen, trot out your candidates, as
the field is "wide and open to all.
The Marietta Lottery.
The Br.RKi.ET & Dutton lottery of
Marietta has, in our opinion, prov
ed a grand eell. The list of prizes
has been reduced from ?36,000 to
8,000. Quite a number of persons
about Woodsfield have forwarded
their tickets to Marietta lawyers to
collect back for them their money.
Berkley & Dutton having viola
ted every promise made to ticket
holders, our advico is: Send your
tickets to Marietta and demand
your money for them. To repose
any further confidence m the thing
is to loso yonr money. Woodsfieli
Some people around this vil
lage aro interested in this Lottery,
a id itwould probably be well e
nough for them to ivc the matter
IS Our thanks aro due to
Messrs Shepard & Dickey, of the
Lower Mill, for a sample sack of
their most excellent and far-famed
flour. Probably it is not generally
known to our citixens that the
flour manufactured at this mill
stands at tho head in the flour mar
kets of our Eastern cities, and has
dune so for more than twenty years.
Dolph Yoglc, the head miller at the
Lower Mill, ranks high in his call
ing, and couples with his skill as a
miller a coui teous, gentlemanly and
accommodating deportment, which
makes him universally liked by all
that have business with him.

THE NINTH CENSUS.
The Assistant Marshals'aro now
engaged in taking the enumeration
of tho people, and collecting the
statistics of the wealth and produc
tions of the country. The impres
sion that this census is to be a ba
sis of taxation is entirely erroneous.
The estimate is fcr ascertaining the
true wealth of the Nulion and the
several States, and it is to the in
terest of every citizen to return hi
property at the full value.
In order that the people rnny be
prepared to answer the inquiries of
tho census-takers, we give the fol
lowing from their list of questions,
and suggest that they be road over
carefully and the information gath

Oh Thursday next, Campbell's
SJenngerio & Circus will exhibit in
McConnelsville. This mammoth
concern is made up of all that is
instructive and entertaining in the
Auimal department, while the Cir
cus, we are told, cannot be excelled.
The Menagar:e comprises every
species of the Brute tribe, spread
ing in variety from the pondrous
elephant, and more graceful camel,
down to the agile, mischeivous and
merry ope, including the only Afri
can Eland, or Horned Horse, in
America. The Circus is made up
of a long list of the most celebra
ted performers in America, inclu
ding the greatest of living femalo
equestriennes, little Mary Brown.
The Grand Street Parade will take
placo at 10 o'cIock, A. M., on the
day of the exhibition, forming a
glittering display nearly a mile in
length. As this is tho first Show
of the season in this locality, there
will, doubtless, be a general turn
out from all parts of tbo eountrv on
next Thursday. This will be" the
case most surely, if our farmers
can manage so as to possibly leave
their business on that day. "We
caution the masses that will bo in
town on that day to bo on the'look

BY A CONTRIBUTOR.
Cure for Cholera Morbus and
Late news from "Washington in
forms us that the Government, that
is Useless Grant, had been down
with tho wind cholic. The Gov
ernment had imprudently partaken
of strawberries, cream and sugar.
The cream soured and curdled so
that the digestive apparatus of rho
Government was paralized, and
the fruit, instead ot digesting, went
into rapid decay, causing a fearful
accumulation of foul gasses in the
stomach of tho Government, dis
turbing tho bowels and cansing in
tense pain. Tho treatment consis
ted of a mustard plaster applied to
the bowels ard stomach of the
Government, and a hot brick to tho
small-of-tbo-back. In forty-eight-hours
the Government was suffic-J
iently convalescent tc bear fifteen
minutes consultation with Fish of
the Slate Department.
"All tho above information is ob
tained from Doctor Donn Piatt,
Republican Physician about Wash
ington City. The manner in which
the Government was treated, in its
last sickness, may bo successfully
adopted by all physiciuns when
called upon in a severe caso of
cholera morbus. Make a note of
this, physicians, and in your prac
tice, remember the treatment. Wo
publish this apparently infallible
remedy without charge, and ex
pect, during the coming hot season,
to hear of its universal success.
But, now that the Government
has been resuscitated and saved for
some great purpose, the query is,
what kind of treatment shall be ad
ministered to relieve the people
from the attack of "collar and mob.
ua" made upon them by tho Radi
cals. Instead of a cure for disor
dered in-ards, the people are look
ing about them for something that
will prevent a collapse of their
pockets, threatened by tho huge
demands being mado upon them by
banker, bondholders, tarri Cites,
land-grabbers, scalawags, carpct
bnggers, officeholdert, &c.
Wo venture, at this moment,
when the people are in great agony
and looking about for a physician
to ease or cure them of tho malady
that is upon them, and threatens
certain death, to advise them to go
to tho polls this Fall and voto thtj
Democratic ticket, dismiss their
horrible Republican quacks, and
employ wclMricd physicians of
practical experience. Take up
with those men who successfully
doctored tho family in other times,
and before tho advent of quacks.
Bathing and Swiming.
Tho heated term is approaching,
and the season for bathing and
8wimmg is at hand. A few impor
tant hints and rules might safely
be observed by those who intend
to cngago in the business, and, if
heeded, may prevent accidents,
deaths and arrests.
The advise of the mother to her
son that "ho should not go into the
water until he first learned to
swim,' should be strictly observed,
thereby preventing drowning. If,
however, you aro intent and deter
mined on not listening to tho ad
vise of tho old lady, then observe
theso instructions, to-wit: ' At
about eight years of age you may
approach into the water ankle
deep, the next year go in up to the
knees, the third year to the hips,
the fourth year to the middle, tho
fifth year to the chin, and the sixth
year, then about fourteen years of
you may plungo m all over, go
the bottom and secure a few white
pebble stones, approach to the sur
face, give" a few loud snorts, and
then boldly strike out with bands
and feet for the nearest land. If
you reach the shore you may count
yourself safe; but, if you fail, there
will bo a Coroner's inquest held
over your body, and the verdict of
the jury will be, "camo to his death
There is another thing you must
be careful to observe in this bath
ing and, swimming business. You
must not make any indecent expo
sure of your person in any water
course in the vicinity of a public
highway or a dwelling house in any
city, town, village or county. If
you do you are liable to a fino of
not more than five dollars, or be
imprisoned in tho dungeon of the
County jail and fed on bread and
water only lor the period of ten
days, or both, at the discretion of
the court. Ton must, therefore,
bo on your guard where and at
what time you bath and swim, for,
in the course of human events, for
your indiscretions, you may find
yourself looking through the "ten
of diamonds," under the watchful
care of the County sheriff.
All these rules, hints, and in
structions wo give gratis, in the
hope that all interested parties will
profit by them.
Grant and the Irish.
. In ancient times.the people were
blessed or cursed with inebriated
rulers. Wo read of one King CoJo
of whom the pout sung thusly:
"Old King Cole was a jolly old soul,
And a jolly old soul was he,
Ho called for his pipe and ho called
for his bowl,
And he called for hisfiddlers three."
In some characteristics, Grant
would seem to be a descendant of
the Cole stock. After Grant was
relieved- of his severo attack of
cholera morbus, noticed at length
in another paragraph, "he called
for his pipe and he called for his
bowl," and, not having at hand
"his fiddlers three," he called for
Secretaries of State, War and Navy,
ami, after a few minutes of confer
ence, it was determined that tho
Government must look aftor the
Irish, who wore making a demon
stration against that old tyrant,
John Bull, upon the Canadian fron
tier. Grant sits m the While House
and smokes that cigar, and quaffs
thit old ryo from tho demi-john
given to him by some hungry fel
low who is looking after office, and
issues a flaming proclamation in
forming the leaders of the Fenian
movement that they, by their con
duct, will foifeit all claim to pro
tection by tho American flag.
At this day, wo think it is all
nonsense to talk about the protec
tion of that good old flag. Thero
was a time, when other men ad
ministered tho affairs of this Gov
ernment, that our flag floated on
every sea and in every port on the
globe. Then that flag was feared
and respected by all nations, and
extended its protection to all our
citizens wherever they might bo on
tho face of tho habitablo globe.
But now that very flag has been
trailed in the dust in Canada, and
torn down from the building occu
pied by tho American Consul. It
has been fired upon by a foreign
ship as it floated from tho mast
head of an American vessel. A
mencan citizens, who aro entitled
to its protection, are now incarcer
ated m foreign dungeons for words
spoken heroin tho United Stales,
and from rostroms covered all over
with American flags. Let the fro
quent insults offered to the flag by
the British Government at this day
and in the dark days of the late
Rebellion bo avenged.
Cuban Revolutionist? arc now
dined and toasted in Washington
City by those who pusillanimously
cower at tho roar of the British
Lion. Spain is a poor, weak and
distracted nation. England is rich
aud strong and powerful. There
fore tho accounting for tha bold
ness and indifference of our Gov
ernment towards tho former, and
tho sychophaney and fear toward
Iri6h leaders arc promptly ar
rested by the minions of Grant for
their attempt to regain freedom for
the Green lslcthcir native land;
while Cubans are encouraged in
their endeavors to oust Spanish do
minion from their Isle.
