our positioa is
cot only fair, but
lATHa SU8Piciocs.Oar readers
probably will Vemember our recor
dmg the deaths of - two brothers,
AKred and Samuel Sigler, the for
mer in February last, aged about
fifteen years, and - the latter about
six weeks ago, aged about twenty
three "yean.1" Circumstances have
lately been made public, which we
give below, that lead many tosos
pic-ion, and that causes the family
of tho deceased, to foel certain that
ibej came to their deaths by being
feloniously ."poisoned by some un
ksownvarlr or parties. The cir
cumstances are hs follows : V. .
.. Alfred Sigler, - a few. weeks pre
vious to his death, told his brother
Leonard that he had overheard cer
tain parlies talking abiut robbing
Edward's Store, "and committing
like dfpredations. . Leonard,, with
ont asking him who the- parties
were, told him to step such talk, re
gardiug it as mere boy talk. Alfred
done so, btrt in a Tew days after be-e-an
to tell his" brother Samuel a-
bout it, who closed bis mouth in the
name way Leonard bad for the same
reasons. Shortly after this, Alfred
died.' the ' physicians " not ' under-
standing the causo of his death.
Last October, - however,' a letter
was found near where the Baptist
jt-jrcnc nmitotgnil, directed to
Henry Sigler, which, on opening,
showed itself to be a portion of a
letter, in which, was slipped apiece
of paper, on which was addressed
an inquiry to Henry Sigler, asking
him if he knew anything about the
contents of the letter, and stating
that it was found on the bridge on
tbo 2nd day of the recent Morgan
County Fair.' This letter, fthich
was well worn and somewhat unin
telligible by carrying, was written
with pen and ink, in a rather poor
hasd-writiBg, .and evidently had
been written by iEOifle; .one of fair
natural ability, but meagerly edu
cated. The page which would bear
the address and -date was torn off,
and what remains is on two half
sheets of. commercial note, closely
written oh both sides. Its contents
are about as follows :

This letter wss placed in the pos
session of John F. Sigler, in October
last, and has been in his hands ever

TO THE PATRONS OF McCONNELSVILLE
McCONNELSVILLE, Dec. 24th, 1870.
' For the purpose of securing the
regular and punctual attendance of
pupils, rules to this effect have ex
fatted for years past ; and, when
they were observed and faithfully
executed, the results were, without
exception, most satisfactory.' ;
To procure and present tangible
evidence oftbe necessity of such rules,
however, the - Board of Education
suspended their operation for, and
during the seven weeks of the term
- The following are some of the re
sults of such suspenaion, as report
ed by the pupils :
Absence to perform la
bor, ; -Absenco
to engage in
Absence tor other im
. material causes,
Absence for no cause
Absence by truancy,
47 days ;
36 days ;
183 days ;
272 days ;
41 days ;
The item,4other causes," includes
"buntinz," "fishinjr," . and other
"amusements." The item, "no can
ses," includes absence for no special
cause. . , .
The evidence of the forogomg ta
ble, added to their previous and pre
sent convictions, have induced the
Board, unanimously, Itoxegardrtbe
regular attendance of pupils as the
only policy to be pursued. The op
eration of these rules is resumed,
therefore, from date.
As all are aware, absence from
sickness, death in the pupil's fami
ly ; unavoidable labor ; or attend
ance upon the religious obscrvane
es of the church with which tho pu
pil, or bis family, is connected, is a
reasonable excuse for absence, if
cerl'flud by the parent in writing,
or in person.'. But "visiung, or
any other "aruusemoul,"or -oecupa
tion, is not regarded as sufficient
cause for absence.
Nevertheless, if a family, includ
ing loiL parents and children, close
their residence andgo visiting,
without the precinct,' tbo pspilif
visiting with the family, would not,
in such case, be suspended.
We call upon all parents, who
wish their children to acquire hab
its of punctuality, regularity, order,
and submission to wholesome, pro-
pcrlv-con8titutex! - authority : who
wish them to make attainments in
mental discipline, and sound, relia
ble acquisitions of useful knowledge,
to sustain, by their influence and
example, the regulations,' or sug
gest to the Board others better cal
culated to secure the objects of Pub
lie Schools, and to prevent irrcgu
larity in attendance, and truancy,
Parents have tho privilege of do
clining'to send to school, or of with
drawing tteir children," ac any
time; but, while their children are
members of the schools, let thorn see
to the regularity . of their attend
ance. ; '

JUSTICE WRONGS ON ONE!
Editor Contertative : In your notice
of my article in your last week's issue,
you make two statements, which I
deem to be unfair . and illogical, and
hence would crave the privilege, if not
demand the right, to set the matter
fairly before your numerous, intelli
gent readers. ' ,
You say, ''if he does not believe in
the truth of Revealed Religion,"' he
should reccgiiize th fact that his op
position thereto cannot be of any good
to anyone.;;,' J'-. : ."i
Now, in the first place, I do believe
in "Revealed Religion," and in no oth
er. And, furthermore, I never heard
of any form of religion which was not
claimed by it votaries to have been de
livered, at some epoch, to themselves
or ancestors, in a ' special and divine
manner, either through direct com
munion with their god, or by means of
angels, prophets, seers, or priest.
itoodhism, Brahman ism, Mohamet-
ism, the Mosaic and the Christian reli
gions are. all striking instances in
point ; and why Christians, at this age
of the World, should claim amonopoly
of the term, is a stretch of egotism
which they can, probably, better ex
plain than myself ; and Spiritualism,
the religion which I now profess, is pre
eminent, for the recentness and fre
quency of its revelations. Hence, Mr.
Editor, I am a firm believer in Reveal
ed Religion. .
Secondly I believe all truths, wheth
er in Religion, Philosophy, or Science,
Which comes to me with sufficient evi
dence to convince my judgment that
they are what they are represented to
be. But many doctrines are presented
as truths in religion, which, on invest
igation, I find sadly lacking in such
evidence. These, of course, as rational
men, we should be slow to adopt.
And, now, with regard to your last
quoted proposition : just why, how, or
wherefore, I "should recognize the fact
that my opposition"- to what I honestly
believed to be erroneous doctrines
"cannot be of any good to any one," is
what my probably - obtuse percep
tions cannot comprehend. I thought
all judicious opposition to error had a
tendency to check and eradicate it.
Probably, you can explain, Mr. Edi
I have to regret, that where, in my
last article, I wrote, "Is there an or
ganized beine, outside of and beyond
the iaws of nature, which exercises a
special influence over the destinies of
mankind and the laws of the Universe,
an arbitrary and lamia manner?"
your types made me say, "arbitrary and
lawful manner," which, of course, des
troyed the sense of the sentence. But
'mistakes will sometimes happen in
the beet regulated families."
