SADDLE AND HARNESS SALE. The Devil Making his Appearance.
We cut the following communica-
tion from the Perry County Democrat
ic Uuion and invite all to read it and
reflect upon the demoralizing tendency
of a secret order that requires its mem-
bers to practice deception and false
hoods. It is, indeed, almost passing
belief, that christian men will coun
tenance and unite with such an oath,
bound organization, but humiliating at
it is, we have evidence every day that
foces conviction of its truth. The ed
itor of the Democrat in giving place to
the communication says: 'We have
no hesitancy in pronouncing it true, on
the strength of our confidence in the
honesty and piety of the author.' Well
may every christian and honest man
ask 'can such things be?' O. Eaglt.
Mr. Sheward: I wish to put be
fore your readers a little ot my experi
ence in life. I do it from a feeling of
christian duty, and not witlr-any malice,
lor 1 do think wickedness and sin should
always be exposed.
I am an humble member of the
Methodist Church as you well know,
anu some iour weens ago l met my
class-leader, on Sabbath day, near our
school-house where we have worship
every two weeks. I had heard a great
'.alk about the Kiiow-Nothing'party.
I am opposed to the doctrines ot the
Catholic Church and I thought that
anything that would overthrow papacy
and spread true Religion, was good.
I wanted to join the Know Nothings
and had heard that my class-leader was
one of them. So when I met him that
Sunday, after asking about his family,
I asked him if he wasn't a member ot
the Know Nothing lodge in our town
ship. He said that people had accus
ed him of being one, but it was a great
mistake. He knew nothing about them.
I then asked him to tell me what their
views were and lie again said he did
not know anything about them.
I told him I was sorry lor it, for I

IMPORTANT JUDICIAL DECISION.
In the case of (he State of Ohio vs.
William Hall, charged with passing a
nve aouar counterieit banK bill, ot the
the Farmer's Bank of Kentucky.
It has been held by the Couit oi'Com
mon Pleas now in session in this city,
that the passing of such a bank bill, is
no crime in the State of Ohio, of May
1st, 185-1, prohibiliii2 the circulation
of foreign bank hills of a less denom
ination than ten dollars, renders inope
rative the law making it criminal tooass
the counterfeits ot such bank bills.
The decision will probably give
boldness to the operations ot the coun-'
terfeiters for a time, and doubtless vast
quantities of counterfeit foreign bank
money will be brought into the State
to be circulated. It behooves the peo
ple to be on their guard against the at
tempts to dupe the unwary, and to scru
tinize closely every bill of a less de
nomination than ten dollars on foreign
banks. It will doubtless have the ef
fect to aid the law of May 1, 1854, as
the quantity of counterfeit money will
be so great as to double the chances of
being bitten. Plain Dealer.

that the surest means of advancing their

charges calculated to diacredit the pat

"As citizens of this great and flour

Indetd, the whole countrv is Indebt
ed to Mr. Williams for his intrepid dar
ing and this successful trip. Mr. Wil
liams had numerous "pow wows" with
he Sioux chiefs; they told him that
"Big Bear" had fallen in the skirmish
with Grattan and party, and the blood
of Grattanand party had satisfied their
thirst for bis loss ; but "Bis BearV'sis
ter having taken his death very much to
heart, and grieved herself to death, ind
they called another "pow vow"and con
eluded that another slaughter of the
whites should be had at the earliest op
portunity. Hence the attack of the
mail party. They say that now they are
satisfied with their revenue for "Bia
Bear" and sister, and those who murder
ed the mail party are ready to give them-
selves up to the whites, to be hung or
shot, as shall be determined upon. They
inquired particular! v where all the
whitefaces were that they heard so much
Ulk of, but never seen why don't they
come and fight, not talk so much ?
Mr. Williams also reports fires kind
led upon the highest peaks of the moun
tains, which is a signal for a grind com
bination of all the tribes to adopt
measures for their safety. They have
quantities of furs and are busily engag
ed in makiug clolhing, moccasins, &c.
They have also been providing them
aeles with provisions drying buffalo
meat. &c. for a general campuign.
Mr. Williams met the mails for Salt
Lake for the months of March and April,
near Fort Laramie. Teams are ell bro
ken down, and could not possibly make
over twenty miles a day. He reports
the mail contractors in bad repute all
along the line they having failed to
pay up, and restock the road with good
teams. This is a great outface, and the
people should call for immediate re
dress. If McGraw & Co., cannot com
ply with their engagements, give the
contract to some one who will.
Mr. Williams reports that many ol
the old traders, who hive lived in the
mountins for twenty years, aud have
Souix wivts and children, are in creat
fear of their lives. As his party came
along, several of these traders had been
robbed of all their stock. Should the
war commence, they w ill flee to the
States. Mr. Williams thinks the Crows.
Cheyennes, Rayahoes, and probably the
Canianches are banded with the Souix
against the whites, although thev say
they are not anxious to go to war with
the whites, but if the pals faces come
they will try their best.
Mr. Williams traveled most of the
distance from St. La ram ine into the
Stales, in the night, and laid by in day
lime in camp, being very careful in se
lecting camping grounds that the Indi
ans could not sin prise him, always
placing one or two men on the highest
points, a mile or more from their camp,
well armed, and with a good spy-glass
to keep a look out. His plan of travel
ing completely deceived the Indians,
several bands of whom they saw about
sunset in the neighborhood of their
camps. The Indians supposed they
would only drive a few miles after night
and then camp, of course they would a.
tack them before morning. But Mr. W
understood their game exact, and gave
them the slip in every case. He will
start with a large trtin for Salt Lake
