The Meeting at Hamden.
The meeting nt llnmrien, last
Thursday, wan the largest that has
been held at that place since 18G3,
and.the largest that has been held
In fhis county since 18G8. The

Athens counties all to see Wil

The Marietta & Cincinnati Kail
road carried passengers to and
from tho meeting at half-fare.
Farmer Aixex, accompanied by
Hon. J. II. Putnam, of Chillicotlie,.
arrived' "at 1:55 p. in. Oh the
train was Hon. Jesse D. Bmaiir,
formerly of Indiana, but now of
Kentucky, who was on his way to
West Virginia, lie had not ob
served Mr. Allen until ho had
stopped off the train at Ilamden,'
although both were in the same car
from Chillicotlie. Learning that
Mr. Allen was to spenk at Ilamden
Senator Bkight remained over un
til the G o'clock train eastward
Tho meeting was called to order
by Dr. S. W. Mosahan,:' of the
Township Advisory . Committee.
Harrison Lyle, our candidate for
Representative was chosen chair
man. T. '
Major Allen was ltjeiypd-j; with
rounds of applause, and spoke two
hours with his accustojned ability,
eliciting cheers upo'i? chcers from
his audience at the happy hits
which he made. He paid his re
spects to "Indiana's-War Gover
nor," O.P. MonTc-N,and also to Jons
Sherman, Mr. Allen closed his
speech with the following senti
ments in reference to the dismem
berment of the Democratic party;
"Disband the Democratic party!
You might as well attempt to rub
out the labor system with a sponge.
The day the Democratic party
ceases to exist w ill be the last day
of civil and religious liberty-."
When Major Allen closed, the
crowd called for Jesse D. Bright,
who responded in a short speech,
eulogizing Major Allen. Mr. B.
said his presence here was purely
accidental, being en route East on
business. But he had stopped to
hear once more the clarion voice of
"Honest Bill Allen" in defense of
the rights of the people and of lib-

A Cowardly and Villainous Outrage.
. On last Tuesday night, Nel
sonville was the scene of a das
tardly and malicious act, as has
ever disgraced the valley. Mr.
William Comstock, Superin
tendent of Brooks' coal mines,
had just finished a new house,
tho finest in town, and expected
to move into it in a few clays.
On Monday night last, it was
set on firo by an incendiary and
burned to the ground.
About ten days since, Mr.
Comstock had bought a valua
ble team of match horses from
Mr. II. A. Green, of this place
He was justly proud of his hor
ses and claimed them to be the
best in the county. On the
same nignt tne House was
burned, tho horses were pois
oned. ' ' .
Wo learn this morning that
the horses arc still liviug, but
with little hones of recovery,

Suspicion has not attached to
any one as yet, but the ueuclish
spirit which prompted such a
cowardly act of scounurelism
will soon bo detected wo hope,
and the vilhans punished to tho
full extent of the law.- Logan

Being permanently located once
more, I desire to renew my sub
scription to your valuable paper.
Since leaving Salt Lake and es

parent for some timo in conse
quence of that little Indian squab
ble. I have encountered many
little incidents that would be truly
interesting, provided you were pub

Virginia City, Nevada, is the first.
This is the Capitol of the State;
although a very small city, it has a
very good population. There being
24,000 miners employed in tho dif-
ercnt mines, of which there is n
vast number of rich paying ones.
Tho miners have a Union, and no
man is allowed to work for less
than H per da'. They work by
"shifts," two of which constitute a
day, 1 hours ench. To look
at the city, one would readily sup
pose the place could not hold so
many people, bnt it is estimated
there are 8,000 on at each shift.
' The miners are a jolly set, having
plenty of coin (all tho money in
circulation in Nevada and Culifor
nia is coin) seek the enjoyment so
much courted by that class, viz:
whisky and woinein
Several affrays came toiny notice
during the three weeks I lingered
there. The most noted one was be
tween an engineer at tlie Consolida
ted Virginia Mine and a " bullyj"
It appears that the bully wanted to
put a head on the engineer, who
replied that he " was not on the
muscle but - was on the shoot,"
whereupon tho bully said he would
bo "heeled"' Mxcn they met again;
which was three evenings later,
when the bully fired twice, but
without effcct,the engineer returned
the fire, killing the bully instantly.
The local editor of the Virginia
Evening Chronicle is in unpleasant
predicaments. It appears that he
had been denouncing the manner
in which certain lewd women con
ducted themselves, and the next
p. m., at 3 o'clock, the lady made
her appearance at the office with a
six shooter, backed by a gambler,
and demanded a retraction. The
"Local" happened to be out and
they paraded around and finally
came upon him at the corner of E
and Taylor streets. The represen
tative of the demi montle charged
him with defamation of character,
and a retraction or bloodshed only
would satisfy her. The fearless
quill driver of the Chronicle stood
his "round like a warrior, and
would take nothing back, and his
pluck completely unnerved the gam
bler who stood with pistol in hand
is if waiting for an opportunity to
open the dance. As soon as they
found that the quill driver was on
the shoot they dropped it as a bad
ob. A day or so after bis patience
was tried in a like manner, when he
became out of patience and devoted
lalt'a column to explaining his in
tentions toward this class, and fin
ished by saying that "the next man
horrible accident happened at
the Chollar PaiosiMine, which had
a fatal result. The shaft at the
mine is 1,400 feet deep, and ore is
hoisted by means of a cago on
which a car is run and then hoisted
to the surface. From various
points along the shaft there are
drifts, and this accident happened
from the one hundred foot level. It
appears the man had taken an emp
ty car off the cage and stepped to
run the loaded one on and in so
doing gave the signal and tried to
get the loaded on before the engin
eer would start the engine; in this
he was mistaken, for both' kirn and
the car were precipitated a distance
of 1,300 feet straight down the
shaft. lie was literally torn to
pieces, and shrcads of fiesh and
clothing were found sticking to the
timbers in many places.
THE VIRGINIA MELI.ES
here iter the ruination of the beau
tiful city. These women are con
stantly to be seen in several parlor
saloons, which have several gam
bling rooms in the rear, playing
faro, keno, routelle, shaking dice,
playing cards, drinkidg whisky etc.,
to an extent which is perfectly im
possible to believe. They wear as
many pistols as any man, and fre
quently flourish them at you with
as much defiance as Red Cloud,
Spotted Tail, Captain Jack or any
other devil in human form, al
though there has been uo murder
committed by n female for some
time. As a rule all of them have
plenty of coin and make very free
use of it, betting heavy on faro,
Monte, etc. At all hours they can
bo found in the saloons drunk and
exposing their pretty (?) ankles.
(Don't imagine I participated in
any such revelry; only such things
cannot go unnoticed by the most
pious and fastidious.

Gallipolis & McArthur Railroad.
For some inscrutable reason this
road seems to have fallen out of
the'remembrance of men most in
terested in its construction. It is
of vital importance to our tnwn and
vicinity that it be completed at the
earliest possible tin, communion
tion with the southern part of tho
State, is now greatly impeded, and
a vast deal 'of trade is turned into
other and more circuitous and ex
pensive routes. Vinton and Jack
son counties are crippled for want
of generous means of transporting
their valuable products, among
which iron is the King, and coal
the Queen. Some how the man
agement of this proposed road has
fallen into financial and legal diffi
culties in the very nick and turn
ing point of its most cheerful prom
ises. From what we can learn,
mean jealousies and personal rival
ies are at the foundation of tho
troubles. While Mr. Langley is
busy expending local subscription
along the line of the lower road
there are those trying to bring him
into discredit and suspicion. If the
same amount of native shrewdness
and cunning had been brought to
bear to build the road that has
been hatched and nurtured to dis
place Langley, the road would now
be alive with engines and black
with the smoke of active business.
Why Langhy should be the butt
for the tnve ioined weapons of con
tending fatio 's is the wonder of
the time and the amazement of all
thinking disinterested men. If he
were let nloi e, he will astonish us
with a firsi-class ro..d before we are
aware of it, and long before any of
the sleepy inhabitants of Gallipo
lis will be able to superscedc him.
Let Langley alone then, say we of
the upper valley, and let him have
a fair chance to carry out his well
laid plana for the development of
the richest part of south eastern
Ohio. Logan Sentinel.
We would s.-y that President
Langley is now astonishing the
people of this part of the country
with a first-class road. This por
tion of the line between Vinton
Furnace and a point about eight
miles north of McArtliur will be
ready for the laying of ties and
rails in a very few weeks, if the
weather continues favorable.
Gallipolis & McArthur Railroad. Grape Culture
Is fast becoming one of the leading
businesses of this country, and
that with wine making are general
ly very profitable. Mr. A. Spoor,
of New Jersey, one of the largest
producers in the East, commenced
but a few years ago in a small way
to make wine from currants, black
berries and other small fruits. He
soon turned his attention to grape
raising and planted large vineyards,
from which his famous Tort Grape
Wine is made, which chemists and
physicians say rival the world for
its beneficial effects on weakly or
It is expected that the grading on
thnt part of the line of tho Gnllipo
lis, McArthur & Columbus Rail
road through Jacob Clements' farm,
north of town, about six hundred
feet south of the end of the old
grade and the "Speed Farm," will
be completed to-day. There will be
a trustle of about 000 fw.t to be
erected upon a fill of from 8 to 15
f et between the old and the new
grade. The teams will next begin
work on the line near the residence
of II. II. Swaim.
The following tender missive was
picked up in the ladies' sitling
rooin of the railroad depot at Zales;

and it will give mo spirit to go

In one European museum there

great artist on a cherry stone. The

It is painful to see so much genius
pent up in so petty a space, and
one feels a sense of relief as he turns

of more than life sizo in a marble

Farming along the Atlantic slope
has much of it resembled "cherry
stone carving. it has been among
htuinps outliving the wood-chop
pors, among stones that are still
more imperish:ible,on land too rough
for machinery, on soils yielding
nothing uuloss drained and manur

cats up all the yield of summer.
The cuergy wasted on such farms,
what would it not accomplish in
