SOME LIE.
For gome cause, which we cannol
cipher out unless it be to injure this
. press, or the Democratic party in Vin
ton, a report lias been indiisiriotiMi
circulated in the Northern pu t of the
county that we are a Catholic, i Ins
is false, every word ol it, vet at the
same lime we wish it distinctly under
stood that w e plant oursell on the Dem
ocratic platform contained in our
Constitution that allows all men. to
worship God according to the dictates
of their own conscionce. This posi
tion we expect to maintain so long as
we aie able to cither speak or w rite on
the subject; no print iple was dearer lo
the founders of our Republic, and none
adhere to with more tenatity iy them.
It this make a Catholic then there
are thousands of them in all the Pro

A man calling himsell N Johnston,
who gave scriptural exhibitions at the
M. E. Church, in this place, some
time since, lectured on list Saturday
night in Wilksville, as we are told, in
lavor of Know Nolhingism. We like
to hear of those rag-tag and bob-tailed
ouisi-Quack politicians and mounte-
oaks lecturing to the Free Democrats
of Wilksville Township although
Know Nothingism with all its hellish
concomitants has a loot-hold a'. Wilks
ville, a few more such lecturers sent
down there to enlighten the people will
soon close the Den in that quarter. Ii

BOOT AND SHOE DEPOT.
Swr.Ti.AND and Cogs w km., opposite
the Mc Arthur House, have just receiv
ed one of the largest and most splen
did stock of Boots and Shoes ever
brought to our town, every person we
have heard speak of it express the
same opinion, in addition to this they
have made extensive arrangements to
manufacture to order all kinds ol'Boots
and Shoes for Ladies, Gents , and
Children. This is right, our citizens
should extend to them a liberal patron
age, this enterprise is commendable
they thus build up our town, giving
employment to divers mechanics. Sup
port home industry is the true motto
and is as true now as ever.

of a certain Colonel, "Now I heiin

live, to see the day in Ohio, w hen all
the Bank paper will bear a pro rata per

we will have a law forfeiting the prin
cipal, in all cases where money is loan
ed cn interest, alias usury. Let mo
ney le whit it was first intended lor, to
wit: a "medium nt exchange and a
measure of value," the same precisely
as a yardstick, or hall bushel measure.
There is no true Democrat but will say
Amen to this proposition 1 believe,
et, 1 only give it as my own views;
believing as 1 do that this alone caus
es our commercial difficulties..
Don't say reader that this is not in
accordance to the moral Lw it you
doubt just turn to jour Bi Lie, which
we hope you take as your code of mor
als, and read ExoJusxxii. "ll
thou lend money to any ol my. people
that is poor by thee, thou shall not be
to iiim as a usurer, neiuiersh tlt thou
lay upon him usury." Again Lev
xxv. 36 and 37v., " Take thou no usu
ry ol him, or increase : but tear thy
God, that thy Brother may live vviCi
lice. Thou shalt net give him thy
money upon usury, nor lend him th)
victuals lor increase." Agiin,. Deut.
xxiii. 19v: "Thou shalt not lend upon
usury to' thy Brother', usury of mo
ney, usury of victuals, usury of any
thing thai is lent of usury." Again,
Neh. v, 10v: "I pray youlet us leave
offthis usury." Again the question is
asked in 6th Psalm 1st v: "Lord w ho
shall dwell in thy holy hill?" the 5v.
answers, "lie that putteth not out his
money to usury." Listen again to
Master SoIomon.Pro. xxviii. 8v: "He
that by usury and unjust gain, increas
eth his subsume, he shall gatiier it lor
lum that will pity the poor." Hut

Money is alone a tntdivm of exchange

Smith os Habeas Corpus This was
an application lor the discharge of the
relatur from the custody of the jaifot ol
Logan county, He was prosecuted for
"uttering and publishing as (rue and
genuine, a forged and counterfeit bank
bill of the denomination of two dollars,
on the Slate Bank of Connecticut, at
Hartford, Conn. Crimes Act, Sec. 22
Win Lawrence, and B. Stanton, fur
the prisoner! James Walker, Win. H.
Weit, for the State. The case was ful
ly and ably pretented, and the Court
held, that
The act under which the prisoner U
prosecuted makes it criniiiml to utter
and publish a true and genuine; any
false, altered, forged, or counterfeited
bank bill or note, &c,. for the pay
ment ol money.
The prisoner has doms this, unless the
legislation of this Slate has made bank
bills of a lets denomination than ten
dollars, that are not issued by, or made
payable ut one of the banks of this Sute
utterly Toid and of no validity.
The act of 1840 simple prohibited the
circulation of such banks of less denom
ination than five dollars; and under this
act it was properly held that forgery
and criminal uttering of forged batik
bills, might be committed of such piper
the proper intent being averred.
1 be act of May, 1854, nut only for
i'il the circulation, passing, or transfer
uf such bills of foreign banks, of a less
denomination than ten dollars, but in
its second section declares, "ail such
unlawful papers shall be held in this
Slat to be worthless, and all contracts
in relation thereto, null and roid, and
any disbursments, or payments, or ex
change ior other property of value, made
or attempted to be madi therewith, of
no effect whatever.''
Under this enactment of the LegieU
lure, it it alike unlawful to put oil" ami
to receive such bills, whether true or
falsa, they are alike uorthlesi, and in
capable of being the subject of lawful
contract in this State. The true a .id
the fUe are equally void; he who takes
either, lakes nothing, and there is noih
ingenue or genuine;'' pertaining to eith
it, eitept that under the pMriniuu ol
i he lira i section, the gituiitue may be ho
iia !ide tranafered or received lor thr
purpose of "being sent directly out ol
this State for redemption."
It it not pretended that the charge
dgaiusi the relator it any inch transfer.
and the charge itself is, that he did jass
and put oil, at true and genuine &c.
Toe act charged it no crime within
i he statute of forgery, because no harm
ur advantage to any one results, whetu
er the bill be trie or false.. The gou
me is declared by the statute, vrorlh
leatand void; 1 1 bat no legal extt'eiice
in this Slate, and cnnoftoa the eubject
of forgery, tor there can bt no couuter

the trouble in Krajuva,alieady announc
ed by telegraph.
An Austrian officer, on lift 11th ol
March, saw at a window a lady whose
beauty attracted him, and he lor:hwith
entered the house and demanded ad
mittance to her apartment. The lady
called lor assistance to expel the intru
der. Her husband came and addres
sed the Austrian but too civ illy : " What
do you want here? I do not know you.
You are not billeted in my house, and
the lady you are insulting is my wife."
Without a word the Austrian drew his
sword and stabbed the husband to the
heart. Much excitement ensued. Some
ol tne b) slanders went to lodge a form
al complaint with tl-e police others
sent intelligence to the lurkish com
maiidantat Kalalat, who lost no time
in sending to Kraiova a battalion ol
infantry and a squadron of cavalry and
aitillery. A crowd proceeded to me
Austiian General lo remand the arrest
of tne offender. The General's reply
was brief, but to the point: "Go to the
Devil: 1 wont punish my soldiers lor
such lellows as you!" linsbiutai re
ply roused the indignation of the peo
ule. All the stores were closed, and
. : . . . ,
the citizens assembled in the sheets
crying "Death to the Austrians ! they
are but one against lour ! we wont sub
mit to le slaughtered like the people
of Bucharest I"
A general riot ensued, and the citi
zens, armed with sticks, iron bars, and
axes, attacked and put to death every
Austrian they met. The Austrians,
on their side, turned out and attacked
the people, killing 40 peisons in the
first charge. At this juncture the na
tional gens d'armes and the Roman
soldiers attacked the Austrians, and af
ter a fierce tilit drove them, at the
point of the bayonet, out of the city,
where they yet remain encimped in
the fields. Official statements return
247 killed, on both sides. The Ex
citement continues, and the citizens
have not to-opened their stores. They
demand justice, and are about to send
a deputation to Constantinople, to seek
it from the Sulton.

during a calm, and were landed at
Terre del Fueo. They tlien ascend

The way the Know Nothings are
to nominate their State Ticket.
We clip the following from the Ports
month Enquirer, which expresses our
views :
Sixteen members of the Executive
State Council of Know-Nothings met in
rout lave at Columbus and laid the lot
low ine plan for nnmiuating their State
Ticket, first resolved that the order
shoi.ld make secret nd teperate nomi
nalioiu; then they ivdlild pack the "Re
puMican or peope'a Convention'1 and
loist upon it iheae nominees. The mode
uf procedure is to be this:- Some time
in May all ihe subordinate Couucilt ate
to exnress their reinertive choice for
Slate candidates the voice ol each
Council to b counted according, as the
majority that shall vole.
The expression! thus obtained are to
he forwarded to ihe State President t
Cincinnati. Duiine the fore Dart of
a ,
June a eraiid State conclave is to I)
held iu Cleveland, of delegate! fro.n as
inanv ofthe subordinate Council! '
will attend. At that Convention the
candidates tupgested by the tupordinate
Councils, will be balloted for until the
ihoice is reducec" between three for each
office. These are to be referred back to
the subordinates, o be voted for during
the first week in July and the persons
receiving the most voles is to be declar
ed the nominees of the Order.
After the nominations ere made they
will tecretly endeavor lo secure dele
Kates to the Republican Convention,
and compel it to re-nomiiiiie the candi-
datet of.this Order. The Free Soil pa
pers and Free-Soil party in the Western
Reserve are downuu this wire working
vehemently.
The Cleveland Iudr,edited by John
C. Vrttighn.a leading Free Soiler, thus
pitches into the plan, lie sari :
"In our humble i'.t Igment this patent
right contrivance will outwork. Screw
will gel loose, and cog? will break, and
the whole machine will smash- to pri
ces. Sums ol our rcisontare inese, ist.
Ihe ore nosed nlan is neither fair r
honest. 21, If successful, the conven
tion would not be a Republican but a
Know.Niiiliincr bod v. and the licxel
nominated would be simply a Know
Nothing ticket. 3d. The method con
templaied will destroy the Ami Slave
if and Stale Reform issues, and cause
the election to turn on rativislic pros
ripiion with the re-enactment of the
Cincinnati cenes over the State. 4ih.
I'he efl'ett will be to drive the whole
P'oifstant naturalized vote over to the
Locofocos and Sag Nichis thereby losing
about 30,000 Republican voles, as in
recent election in Cincinnati nd else
where demonstrated. 6th. The more
active and zealous Anti-Slavery men
will either sUy at home in ditgust and
chagrin, or tote the Locofoco ticket to
help defeat the "Hindoos." 6th. The
Ami Slavery cause will be Iroddon un
der fool: the tremendous majorities
against Slavery of last fall will melt
into disastrous defeat; slaveholder and
servile will send up a shout of victory
over the prostrate Republican giant,
whose upraised arm they to much fear
td. But -hie it . not all. The lutiei
prejudices of caste and race will be in
flamed to the highest pitch; natives will
become more pruscriptive, and foreign
ers more clannish. All naturalized cit
izens will sink their national differen
ces and combine in self defence against
the common oppressor. The orgatiiza
tion of the Locofoco party which was
shivernl and almost annihilated by the
Anti-Slavery men, w ill be recruited and
organized with renewed vitality on thi
ne issue of nativislic proscription, di
rected by the spirit of casle and bigotry
and the ueedful State reforms will be
defeated and forgotton in '.hit fierce
though miserable contention. If its
old dough fafed allies mount again into
power, it will rejoice. II the Union
saving muzilers succeed, its giauness
will still be ecsta'.ic, iu either event
its great antagonist will lie prostrate at
its feet.
Thus it will be teen that the Free.
soilers look upon the K. N. organiza
tion with distrust, and from the spirit of
the Leader we are enabled to judge of
the leeling ot the whole Free-Soil party.
Last fall Know-Notlnngism professed
be opposed to be opposed lo Slavery;
fter the election, the lira ml Council,
order to "save their country" and se
cure votes in t lie aouin, neciarer
Iml the agitation of the slavery ques-
iou ought and should cease; and hence
the hostility of Free-Soilers to the
Order." The Leader ies the follow
n g as the platform uf the American Re
form (It. N ) irty:
ihe to called American party., ts an
organization whose members are sworn
to proscribe all persons of roreign birlh
regardless. of their principles, character
nr patriotism. Xirl. I he Order reiuses
to advocate Anti-Slavery in us Cour.cils,
or pleoge its members to oppose the ag
gressions of Slavery. Bv the terms of
the new third, or "cotton degree," each
member is sworn to play. the part of a
louehface, under excuse of savin? the
Uniun. by putting down the agitation
uf all dangerous questions. Opposition
to slavery, it is asserted, endangers the
peace and perpetuity of the Union,
therefore each third degree member is
sworn to proscribe such aiii la lion, and
keep it out of the councils of the Order
and no person it a full member of the
order until he hat taken that degree.
lie is obliged, furthermore, that he will
upport, at all elections, only those who
ire third degree members of the Order.
the discussson and agitation of tu
great slavery question is thus complete
ly banished from the Councils, and na'.i-
virtic proscription made corner stone of
the institution. Oil this basis the Or
der is nationalized, and a free man of
Ohio made to clasp hands and frater
uize politically with au Alabama slave
driver. And this is the platform of the
American Reform Pally.
Knotr Nothineism hat now but one
idea aud that it bitter, unrelenting per
se cut ton of foreigners and those ol our
citizens who worship Ood according to
ihe orthodoxy of the mother Church.
This it mioerabl narrow platform, and
well the dernagouget who lead the 'Or
Jer know it, and hmca their determi
nation to pack the Free Soil Conven
tion aud make it nominate thtir candi
dale. But we believe if they even suc
ceed in doing this that they must be dt
fftV. The people of Ohio will not
encourage war of rtcet and raligions;
they are too enlightened tnd liberal,
and when the 'ideal of October' toll
around, the transparent humbug, ro sue

will be hooted at and hissed at unwor

The world is rilled with such a rapid

only add to the number of scientific de
