Vinton Again. We call attention
this week to the communication of
Alliens, which shows up in beautiful
colors, Know-nolhingisni in Athens
and Vinton counties. Wondei when
Vinton will exhibit his carcass to the
geniel rays of our Spring sun ? Come
out in open day. Uan t do it ! Atraid
of putrefaction ! Wonder if the words
of Randolph are ever suggested to his
mind when viewing himself in a mir
ror? We think we hear him breathe.
Wbat?
Am I a thing, "that rtinks and
shines, and shines and stinks, like a
rotten tnaokrel by moonlight." Let
him alone in his reveries. It were a
ain to disturd the dead.
Hahdwabi, Cutlery, Iron, Nails,
&.C.. &c. The old and established
House ol D. N. Murhey & Co, have
on hand a large and general assortment
of Hardware, Farming Implements,
and a stock of the finest Cutlery, per
haps ever opened in any market westof
the mountains. Our friends here, vis
iting Portsmouth, will find this firm
composed of men of strict business in
tegrity, and perhaps, possessed of more
liberality than the limes warrant. They
will be reseiving additions to their
stock during the continuation of the
spring trade. Give them a call.
Morning Herald.
The above is the title of a spirited
daily paper, s'arted some two weeks
(go at Portsmouth, Ohio. Edited by
John P. Dumas, and published by
Phelps & Dumas, it proposes to be
neutral in politics, and devoted to the
commercial interests of the City and
county. If the Herald continues true
to this position, it should receive the
hearty support of the business men of
Portsmouth and Scioto county. We
are thankful to the publishers for the

of Portsmouth.
Morning Advertiser of Chillicothe.
Published by Eshblmaw & Ball

of the best Daily a in the State, and
what gives it interest to us, is the fact
that the Advertiser is guided by truth
and j vttice, in other words, it is radi
cally democratic. We are under many
obligations to the Gents., of the Ad
tertistr for Ex., and would wish our
friends who wish daily news to subscribe.

COMMUNICATION.
[For the McArthur Democrat.]
Mr Editor: I see that a certain
(would be) somebody, over the cogno
man ot Vinton," has commenced a
cowardly attack through the 'mud ma
chine' of this place, upon your Com
missioners and yourself. Vinton'
tries to charge the Commissoners with
allowing, and you with receiving, more
tor cue priming oi your assessors
blank?, than the Herald" men offered
to do the same work. It is neither my
right nor intention to meddle with the
financial matters ot your county: 1
know nothing about your charjjp, nor
the Herald's offer. I leel confident.
however, in sat ing, fro.ti what I know
ol your Commissioners and yourself,
that nothing unreasonable was allowed
or received; nothing that Vinton mm
sell would have objected to had it gone
into the hands ol the Herald, or any
other Know Nothing print. "Vin
says; "I lie people will not sus
tain their officers in paying a higher
price tor tins work tnan that proposed
by the Editors of the Herald" and
you "as well as the Cimmissioners
will be made to feel it." Wonder il
this "Vinton" is the one who drafted
the den resolutions ? Resolving nut to
cease trom labor, either secretly or
publicly, until your county is purged
lrom the baneful influence of a Demo
cratic press, and Democratic county
officers," and to "endeavor to have
candidates tor onice who are promin
ent members ot some Protestant church
of Arminian or Calvinistic faiih." Il
the same wonder when he became so
much alarmed about Catholics? Won
der when his fine sensibilities became
so easely shocked at "mean whisky
and Irish cheers ("
One would have thought that the
Jack ot the Messenger, would hardly
dare to publish "Vinton's" article
But, perhaps he has torgolten that when
there were two presses iu Athens, that
the Editor of the Democrat stood ready
at all times to do the public printing for
less money than was paid the Messcn
ofr lor the same work: but Mr. Sted-
man was neuner a wing nor a linow
Nothing. Consequently he got none
of the public printing that could be
kept from him, although it would have
. a irri -wr
cost the county less. Whether the Mes
senger would have bid. lower it an ot
ter trom the Democrat nad been enter
tained, I am not prepared to say; as no
offer from the Democrat coul J ever re.
ceive any attention from a majority of
the Commissioners. Jack had to have
the public printing, and of course got
all he charged; hut then, this was all
right with Know Nohtings. But what
right has a board of Democratic Com
missioners to give the public printing
of a county to a Democratic press,
especially in these days of Know AoA
mgism and oallol-box ovrningi fer
bans Jack will call this all &"Corn
Whisky" lie, and may be provoked to
apply that "rasp," as the warm weath
er has commenced, and the time of
year when Jacks are used to hray the
loudest. It you lear the "rasp," Ma
jor, don't publish this article until you
smoolhe it down, tor Jack is a power
ful critter. But if you think no dan
ger will result lrom it, you will please
give u a piace in your columns.
Yours truly,

Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad.
The Railroad Rtcord of Monday last,
has the following sensible notice of the
above work, which is also true, except
ing only that it does not call it by the
right name, viz : Advtrtiaer.
The Cincinnati and Marietta Railway.
This most important and, indeed, essen
tial work to Cincinnati, is progressing
slowly, but surely. The curs are now
tunning to a point 22 miles east of Chil
licothe; being 112 mile from Cincin
nati, of which 75 miies are on the Marietta
Koad. About 8 or 10 miles more
will bringil to Charleston, where it will
intersect the Scioto and Hocking Val
ley Road, and make a continuous line
to Jackson and Portsmouth. From Cin
cinnati to Jackson will be a 139 miles,
only about nine miles further than the
most direct line; which is practicable.
To Portsmouth will be 175 miles, a cir
cuitous route, indeed, but one which
will be ery useful, in a large part of
the year, wbea the river is low. The
Marietta Company have made a negotia
tion in Europe dependent upon a con-
aidon which will furnish it money
enough to complete the work. Tbecou-
ditiou is that about 0300,000 should
be ratted and paid by the people on the
lint; to give assurance that the foreign
bond-bolder shall not only have the ap
pearance of the large stock subscription,
which the Company now has, but the
hearty co-operation and help of the peo
ple on lb line, aud this undoubtedly
just aud wise condition. We under
stand that $100,000 is nearly raised in
ChillicoChe, and there is little doubt
the whole amount required will be ob
tained. We think it is beyond doubt,
lb Mar'.etta Road will be completed in
reasonable lime.
The Various Weights of Produce.
We publish the following established
weights of various articles of proJuce:
A bushel of wiieat, sixty pounds,
Of shelled corn, fifty-six pounds.
Of corn on the cob, aeteuty pounds.
Of rye, fiftyfiv pounds,

Of barley, forty-eight pounds.

the land thiu now. It will be the 'good
time come.
There is a deal of infidelity abroai,
and it is every day spreading, mainly
because there are few counterfeiting in
fluences. The Christian Church it not
enlaced in the same mission it once
was. Its adherents have not the same
faith in the saving grace and efficacy of
the gospel they once had. They no loLg
er appeal to the conscience o: merges
they used to do, but they appeal to the
Legislature to make laws to compel men
to be gnod. Its ministers (we speik of
the Protestant church) leave the pulpit
for the hustings abandon divinity for
politics. They have been known to
join Know Nothing lodges, and to take
the fearful, wicked, damning oaths there
administered. The descent is fearful.
No wonder that infidelity prevails. We
observed the other day, among the names
of officers elect of one of our city Chris
tian churches that a notoriously prom
ineht Know Nothing, but liot notorious
foi piety. We make no professions
ourselves, but we know what mockery
of religion is, No wonder, w say
that infidelity prevails.
Things, we suspest, will be mended
by and by. Massachusetts has had full
fruition of Know Nothingism. Through
the iustuinentality of the Order thirty
or forty professed ministers of Christ
were sent to the Legislature. Those
thirty of forty ministers have notexer
cised influence enough to save the Leg
islature from disgrace. We do not know
that they have tried. They voted for the
appointment of the committees whose
exploits have been recorded in the pub
lie journals, and one of whose members
made shameful propositions to the Lady
Superior of the convent, and another of
whom, on the expedition toanolhor con
vent, carried with him a disreputable
person of the opposite sex whose expen
ses were paid by the State I These
things were enacted, Iu the name ol
Protestantism, in Massachusetts, by a
committee of a Legislature coniainingi
among its members thirty or forty pro
fessed ministers of the gosple. They
never will be re-enacted in that State.
Massachusetts has had a surfeit of Know
Nothingism. Few other Slates will de
sire to be thus stated.
We believe in Protestantism. But
we don't believe iu political Protestant,
ism. We don't believe in Protestant
ism tlut countenances Know Nothing
ism. We don't believe iu the Protest
aniism which permits its priests lode
file their religion. We don't believe in
Protestant inquisitions more than in
Catholic inquisitions in American in
quisitions more than in Spanish inquis
itions. The Protestantism we believe
in is that whose weapons are Truth atid
whuse faith is in its efficacy. This is
what Protestantism used to be what il
must be if it would save itself from dis
grace and rum, and the country from iu
fidelity.

The work Fairly Begun-Leaving the Know

"The New Constitution in the

Tha Know Nothing organs that one
spoke for h Whig party, attempt to be
witty because several uemocra.ic pa

of the nw Conatitution. U the Demo

ihe parent correct its own cniiu, anu
ibeu it will be done in a spirit of mercy

not to maim or kill it, as its enemies
might desire and attempt. The friends
of the new Constitution are tna very
ones to amend and improve it they
have looked upon it with a father a car

amendments as will improve it.anu not

the opposition press expect, therefore,
to make any thing out of the sneer, that

Anti-Washington Men.
The recent scenes of effigy burning
and riot recall a reminiscence. During
the first campaign of the Revolution
some of the camp-followers of the American
army entered into a design that
called out the following order, which
may be found entered in Washington's
'Order Book :'
'Novembeb 5, 1775. As the Commander-in-Chief
lies been apprised ofa
design for the observance of that ridicu
lous aud childish custom of burning the
effigy of the Pope, he cannot help ex
pressing his surprie '.hat there should
officers and soldiers in this army so void
of common sense as not to see the im
propriety of such a step at this juncture
at a time when we are soliciting,
baved really obtained, the frietlahip and
alliance of the people of Canada, whom
we ought to cousider as breihem em
barked iu the same cause the defense
of the general liberty of America.
such a juncture, and in such circumstan
ces, to be insulting their religion, is
monstrous as not to be suffered or excus
ed; indeed, instead of offering the most
remote maul t, it is our duty to express
public thauks to those our breihem,
to them wa are indebted for etery late
happy success over the common enemy

justice the Know Nothings steal the

their insane religious warfare. Never
