The Marietta. Register says "the Re
publicans expect to vote on the llth

may be correct in its sage (?) remark, it
might have added that there are great
numbers of said Republicans, resident
in the Fifteenth District, that don't ex
pect to vote for W. P Sprague.

John Mccormick informs us
that we were in error relative to the
particulars of a runaway we noticed two
weeks ago. He says that his brother,
Duncan McCormick, was in charge of
the team, instead of himse'f as our. ar
ticle sai 1 ; and that the team was prop
erly hitched, instead of being unhitch
ed; also, that they always are careful
about hitching their team when they
come to town. We are well pleased to
be able to make this correction, as we
are of all errors that may appear in our
paper. Our notice two weeks ago was
made up of the information we gath
ered on the streets relative to the mat
ter. However, it may be well enough
for u to state that it does not do any
good for a person to get too much ex
cited over . errors that all newspaper
men are liable to make.
We understand that Mr. Sprague is
a ki nd of m on ey broker on a small scale
A mistake. Mr. Spraetie was for a
time President of the McConnelsville
National Bank, but went out of that
position three years go, and sold most,
if not all, of his Btock. He was a mer
chant in Malta for many years, and is
now a merchant in McConnelsville.
The Crescent is not mistaken. While
it is true that Mr. Sprague was for a
time President of the First National
Bank of McConnelsville, and has. been
engaged in merchandising for many
years, vet he has always been a "mon
ey broker on a small scale." He has
always been ready to "shave" at a good
discount, or to loan to any body that
was hard pushed and would give good
security and pay from fifteen to twenty-
fire per cent, interest.
Great dissatisfaction was felt in
Meigs County because of the means
employed to defeat Hon. V. B. Horton
as a candidate for the nomination for
Congress by the Republican District
Convention, recently held in Marietta,
and which male W. P. Sprague the
nominee. The Meigs County Telegraph,
the local Republican organ, says rela
tive to this matter: m
"An interesting chapter might be
written in regard to the means put
forth to defeat Mr. Horton at Marietta;
but this, perhaps, is not the most ap
propriate time to do it. Hereafter,
when the thing can be done without
detriment to the Republican cause, we
propose to "tell some tales out of
school" that will make some parties
wish they had made a different rec
ord." These "tales" that the Telegraph pro
poses to tell, we opine would not be of
benefit to 3ir. Sprague were they told
before the day of the coming election.
Oue of them might be to effect that the
Morgan C unty delegation to the Ma
rietta Convention was united upon one
point; and that, that under no consider
ation, bhould Ron. V. B. Horton be the
nominee. Whether or not, this is one
of the "tales" the Telegraph now has in
fctore for its readers at some conveni
ent period, we cannot say; but, certain
it is, that eaid Morgan County delega
tion would have given its support to
any man' in the District before it would
to Mr. Uorton.

would as soon think of getting an

ville on Tuesday morning. A great
many witnesses had been subpoenaed
to be in attendance on Monday, and
were unnecessarily made to lose one
day from their business vocations, be
cause the Judges composing the Court
were not here to commence business.
This being a day behind time, has be
come chronic with our Judges, not
withstanding the fact that they know
full-well the day on which Court is to
set, and that great numbers of our far
mers, mechanics and business men, are
called to be in attendance punctual to
the day and hour. It strikes us that
men honored by the people by being
chosen to fill such important positions
as Judges of our Courts, should be more
punctual in fulfilling their appointments.
On Wednesday, the 6th instant, an

Morgan, and John S. Conner of Guern

all duly sworn to perform their duties
faithfully by James M. Gaylord, Esq.
The only ticket presented was com

On Monday morning, the time ap
pointed for a regular meeting of the
County Commissioners of this County,

health. II is resignation was accepted,

Tins morning, while workmen
were reparing the Zano House pump
nnd nrenarinff to clear, out the well.
'James Wagoner, who was assisting
at the work, stepped upon the old
platform covering tho well which
cave wav with him and down
he went. In his descent ho seized
the pnmp-htalk, which, beini wet
and slimy, slipped through his
grasp like greased lightning, and
without check he landed m six feet
of water at the bottom of the well,,
fifty feet from the top. Parties at
the top of the well finding him alive,
let down a ropo which ho fastened
around his body, and was hauled to
tho surface, very little the worse of
his perilous fall, receiving only r.

Prohibition in Massachusetts.
Tho Prohihit'-cnists of Massachu
setts met in convention recently,
and nominated a State ticket, with
Wendell Phillips at the head for
Governor, and adopted the follow
ing resolutions as their platform :
Resolved, 1. That the policy of
the Sfrite toward the liquor traffic
affects every political interest; that
it affects production, expenditure,
taxation, pauperism, prostitution,
the peace of the streets, the repres
sion of crme, the protection of per
son and property, the interests of
labor, the purity of tho ballot, and
the success, if not the existence of
2. That a policy which thus af
fects every political interest ought
to be decided -by tho people, and
should, by common consent, have
precedence to all other ispucs.
3. That we can have no hope from
a divided party ; that, representing
the two extremes of a liquor policy,
a divided .party can neither decide
for license nor for prohibiten ; that
it can neither pronounce for the life
nor for tho death cf the dram-shop
system, and that its opposing forces
centralize each other so that it can
neither adopt any policy, nor exe
cute any laws, nor make any issue
on this question.
4. That there can be no greater
peril than party competition for the
liquor vole; 'bat any party not open
ly opposed to thu traffic must engage
in this con. petition, must court the
favor of the criminal classes, must
barter the public morals, the purity
of the ballot, and every object of
good government, for party success.
5. That this corrupt competition
must be coexistent with the life and
political power of tho traffic ; that
an issue against their existence, is,
therefore, the only remedy, aid that
no such issuo can be made without
independent political action.
6. Therefore, that the organiza
tion of an independent political par
ty is an inevitable necessity.
7. That as a political party, we
seek a political object; that we aim
at the extinction of tho entire dram
shop system, national and etate, dis
tilled and fermented, not because it
is criminal, but because it is danger
ous and injurious to every interest
of tho "ommonwealth.
8. That while we recognize the
importance of other reforms, and
other political measures, wo pur
posely defer making party issues
thereon ; that our first work is to
place the state in unequivocal oppo
sition to the dram-shop system, and
that nntil that object shall be secur
ed wo will not bo diverted there
from by other issues.
9. That believing the liqnor pol
icy of the Plato to be incomparably
more important than other party
issues, and asking our Father iu
heaven to bless our act, we now sev
er the tics that bound us to other
political parties ;that we denounce
the dram-shop system as a common
school system ot vice ; that we
pledge the best efforts of our lives
for its overthrow, and that to this
end we demand of the state and na
tion a Radical Prohibitory policy.
10. That we appeal to working
men to go with usajtain6t a system
that degrades and enslaves labor
a system that largely consumes its
carnings,and enables capital to con
trol its votes, its hours of service,
and its wages.
11. That we appeal to Democrats
to go with us against a monopoly
that corrupts the ballot, that gives
office to the highest bidder, and that
lives by robbing the poor of lood,
fuel, clothing, and shelter.
12. That we appeal to Republi
cans by every motive that led them
to battle againstslavory to go with ns
ngainstan enemy, neither less pow
erful nor less dangerous to the na
tion and the race.
The convention had among its
800 delegates many' strong and able
men, such as Rev. Dr. Minor, lion.
John J. Baker, lion. EliphaletTrask
II. D. dishing, Esq., J. H. Orne,
Esq., Hon. Otis Carey, Rev. George
F, Clarke, &c.
Srli appears that tho Govern
ment has made about $200,000 which
have accrued to the United Slates
Treasury from the redemption of
mutilated notes and fractional cur
rency, and this fact seems to officials
such a mark of financial ability that
they quite plume themselves upon
it. Doubtless it is a 6hrewd way in
vliieh to obtain money which does
not belong to ihe Government, but
to individuals, an indirect mode
of taxing a people which is already
sufficiently burdened. Government
loses by mutilation of its notes only
tho value of the paper on which
they are printed a mere trrfl not
worth conBidei ing. Those who suf
fer most heavily are laborers who
can ill afford such deductions from
their hard-earned wages; for such
persons are entirely at the mercy of
the tradespeople who refuse to take
mntilateu notes save at a reduction
from the value expressed on their
face. The course taken by the Gov
ernment in tho matter is totally in
excusable, and another exhibition of
tho incapacity, not to say knavish,
ness of Radical rulers.
A Home. It is tho bright, bless
ed, adorable phaiilom which sits
highest on the nunny horrizon that
girdcth liio ! When shall it be reach
ed ? It is not the house, though that
may have its charms; nor the fields,
carefully tilled, and streaked with
your own f ntp:ilhs; nor the trees,
though their shadows betoj ou like
that of n "great rock in u weary
land;" nor yet is it the fireside,
with its cozv comfort : nor the pic
tures, which tell of loved ones; nor!
fh rheiishoi! looks: but more far
...w , - .
than all these, it is the presence ! ,
J he altar ot your conncenoe is mere;
and adorning it all, the sending of
your blood in passionate flow, is tho
ecstacy of the conviction that there,
at least, you are beloved ; that thcro
you are understood ; that there your
errors will meet ever with the gent
lest, forgiveness; that thcro your
troubles will be smiled away ; that
there you 11133 nnburthen your soul,
fearless of harsh unympathiztng
ears; and that there you may bo
entirely and joyfully yourself.
Unenviable Fame. Tho Ad
vance notices the favoritism which
General Grant is receiving among
tobacconists, as follows:
An old fact has fallen under our
observation within a few days, but
whether to consider it a reward o
merit, or a retribution on vice, is
tho question. Life-siz".d, carved
statues of General Grant, in wood,
are making their appearanco in
various parts of the city, yet always
wi.h the amo singular surroun
dings. Our honored President ap
pears in military garb, with the
invariable and characteristic cigar
in his fingers, doing duty at the
doors of the tobacconists! Tho In
dian, who has so long stood in this
public spot, is to be dismissed from
service; even the spindlcshanked
British soldier, who has lately been
substituted in some quarters, is to
be withdrawn, and the President f
the United States is to bo the
patron saint of the smokers, and to
have his image set up wherever the
incense is hurnedl If any thing
connected with us is to go down to
posterity, may it r.ot bo our vices!
Now that tho dog season is "on,"
the papers abound with "sure and
simple" cures for hydrophobia.
There is not a singlo instance on
record of recovery from a well
anthtnticated case of hydrophobia.
The best thing a man can do, on b-
ing bitten by a rabid dog, is to re
pent of his sins, make his will, aud
shoot himself through the head on
the appoarance of tht first" well
marked symptom. As for tho fnoltt
'who publish cures, they should be
thrown into art-pitand nibbled to
death by terriers.
Josh Billings has been to Long
Branch, and thereof writes: "The
biggest thing they have got hero
for the present is the pool of water
in front of tho hotels. Tho pool is
sed bi good judges, to be 3,000 ?niles
in length, and in some places five
miles in thickness. Into this pool,
every day at 10 o'clock, tho lolks
all retire; males and females and
widders, promiskuss. Thoy dress
in flannel attire ov menny colore,
and look as near like when they are
in tho pool, as a flock of ducks and
drakes. The water in this pool
has stood so long it has got 6alty,
and ought to bo changed."
