of M. J. Enbioht, Republican, for the po
aition of Clerk of Common Den, Lticna

the Court of Common Hem, Toledo, on
Monday. The counsel for the plaintiff, af
ter having a week to look up the cnc, de
cided that froiu the ruling of the Court
the witnesses could not he mndu to testify,
therefore they ulmittcd the case, which
, left the contestant with the costs to pay.
From the changing of the Voting precint

Hsed, it is not difficult to tell that they had
an election down at Toledo, but we should
think it extremely difficult to tell who
were honestly elected, and why.

a disposition to kick lis on the shin under

we have a clear case of libel in this very
assertion and could make the writur"weal"
before he got through with it. We had
fully worked ourself up to the belief, that
a part of our minion on earth was t op

convinced also, that we were likely to have

William Hayes' Acquittal.
W take the following extract from a
well tempered article on the results of the
trial of Wm. Hayls, from the Fremont
The verdict in fll was read hy Judge
Fiuefrock, and it closing word, "Not
(iiiilty," were immediately followed by
J udge Pillers, one of the counsel for the
defense, clapping hi limit!, in which he
w.is joined by Hayes' friends in the audi
ence. Wives was it t once surrounded liy
liis relatives and friends, and congratu
lated on his lucky escape. The congratu
1 itions of hi sister, who, brave woman that
she is, sat bv his side during the entire
trial, and also those of his father, who was
constantly in Court, were very affecting.
The expression of their earnest ayniyutliy
caused the now free man, whose feelings
had bean wrought np to such pitch that
he could no lunger master thrni, to give
way to his emotions, and he sohbed like n
rhilil for ten or fifteen minute. It was a
touching scene, and at the same lime a
Jileasure to nil present to witness the de
ight of his friend as they surrounded him
in the hour of his deliverance (n it ever
iiiustbo when one is delivered from impend
ing peril); and yet the feeling seemed al
lium universal in disappointment of their
expectation of what the. verdict would be,
f ir verv few looked for nnvthing lighter
than manslaughter it was hoping against
Impe for a time with Hayes and those di
rectly inlerented and still, nil appeared
a.ttistied with the Ending of a jury so able
and impartial in character. Cut let no
man suppose for a moment that he can
follow the example of Hayes or take the
life of his fellow with even a loss degree of
- impunity flian was evidenced in this case,
for it is no doubt true that Haves' escape Is
due to a narrow technicality of law and the
benlBt of iJU douAl as to whe'.her death was
tytuaed by the first impulsive shot or by hi
mora deliberate shot whi.iU followed.
It was noticed that even the first shot
would have found no justification had not
the previous bad character of Cupp aided,
in the eyesofnhe law, to make Haves' erii
more imminent. Ollierwisn, Cnpi'i wnajusl
a much entitled to life and the protection
of the laws as any other person. Trulv,
Hayes has escaped by a hair's breadth of
mere good luck, while Cupp was the victim
of a terrible misfortune, all of which
speaks in thunder tones in favor ol preserv
ing a good moral character and against the
nefarious practice of carrying arm.
Of course, there i some ilissaiiafHction
at the result of the Have trial; that was
to be expected, more especially among
Cupp' friends and the hummer element of
Clyde and lewhere. If Hayes had taken
the train for Clyde it noon Saturday, a he
intended, to see hi wife and baby, upon
whom he dotes, he would most likolv have
been roughiy handled by an enraged
crow a that was at the depot walling lor
Mill, lie was persuaded by his lather and
sister to accompany them to i'errysluirg,
their home, which he did on the first train
west that afternoon. Hayes i a young
man, and we are convinced lhat he is not
as bad at heart as he baaheen paiuUd.and
from his manner of speech, together with
the respect ihility of hi family, we feel
that he Mill yet retrieve this niixfniliine
and be resivcled. He attributes his tronl).
les to the hoi company into which he w is
thrown, which was 'partly unavoidable,
and solemnly declares that he will never
gain pursue the business lie was engaged
in al the time he did the shooting.
However much peopl iniy differ in re
gard to the trial, it seems lo he conceded bv
all that never was ihere greater legal nhil

of a case than thul of Colonel J. R

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 29, 1878.
Gen'l and .Senator Ciordon in the nnpar
allelled magnanimity of his great heart, is
willing to concede that the average north
erner may have, after all, some commend
able trails nf character, though of course
thoy are not to be mentioned in the same
breath with the sublime attribute inher
ing in the genu bull-doxer. lie, this
whilom generalissimo of the Georgia Kn
Klux, has been led to this charitable view
of the Yankee nature from aid contributed
north of Mason and Ilixon'a linejor the
relief of victim) of the yellow fever acourga
that ao recently decimated the town and
country of the lower Mississippi Valley.
This amiable sou of Mar ha almost con
cluded to foigive Ihe North and West for
their past factious opposition to the pur
pose of Nationnl Democracy, and to draw
the mantle of charity over the uncalled fur
interference of those sections with the pat
ilotic programme which Democracy sought
tn enforce between April 1SC1 and April
1365. But Blaine, the Chandler and
few other stalwart have tipped the fat all
n the fire hy their olficton attempt to in
ter meddle with "home rule" and to mak
"local government an exasperating mock
ery by depriving Senator Oortluu Demo
cratic constituency of its inherent right to
whip, chase with blood hounds, mutilate,
murder, and annihilate all dissentcrs.w bile
and black, from the lonela of ruffianly, cut
throat Democracy. It probably has never
occurred to this gentle Georgian that he
and his copartners in the eflorl made to
render the Union established in the blood
of the father and doubly cemented in that
of their eons, stand in need of a vast
deal of forgiveness for Ihe 500,000 men who
were sent down into untimely grave
through the colossal crime of secession.
He seems to forget the magnanimity exer
cised by the victot ioiisstnl wans when they
spared every one of the thousands of lives
that had been forfeited tinderthe law, com
pared with which, in point of generosity,
Ihe aggregate of yellow fever contributions
is a mere bagatelle. And it might not be
amiss for him and other sentimental gush
ers of his class to remember that under nil
the sirens of the 60 month of unprecedent
ed distress nnd hard limes, nil directly
traceable to the Democratic rebellion, the
stalwart for whom Mr. Blaine and the oth
er alluded to apeak onlv demand that the
law shall be respected in Stale under
Democratic control, precisely as tbevure
where Republicans shape legislation nnd
ntorce it without respect ol politics or per
son. , 1 In l the sum tntnl ot stalwart of
fending it is all they have ever demanded.
And Mr. Ijonton and other ol equal intel
ligence ought to understand that the ex
cesses of which Southern Deniocrncv has
been guilty during the past six months,
have solidified the reputable masse North
and West into nn irreaistable power that
will enforce respect for the laws and equal
human right. They are in deadly antag
onism to the aatanic spirit of secession nnd
tvu Kiuxiam; and the repetition of the
titrage of the past campaign will only
make them more solid and impart addi
tional momentum, in their mission to make
Republican Government a living and vital

Ridge, semi occasionally, and as no article has
appeared for some time past, from her. I shall
