WEDNESDAY HOK5I.W, KOV. 8.
Messrs Ripley, Cowl ?fc Co. took
hold of the Union Vial and Bottle Fac
tory when it had pretty badly burned
the hands of its prime owners, and hav
ing slipped through the fingers of its
original projector, bid fnlr to slip Itself
into the creek. It was considered an
unlucky affair, al> ?1 situation, and all
the other bads which become the con
venient grave of unfortunate manage
The uew firm brought to bear on the
defunct institution, skill, experience
and practical energy, which soon dls
Klleu all the ills to which it seemed to
vo been heir, with the exception of
the one great ill, its original construc
tion. In a run of eight or ten months
they built up a flourishing trade and
made as good glass ware as ever clinked
on the counters of a wine establish
ment, or the shelves of an apothecary.
Owing, however, to the deficient con
struction of the whole concern, the ovens
gradually, one after another, became
unfit for use, until the proprietors re
solved to remedy the evil by beginning
at the foundation; and accordingly,
during the months of August and Sep
tember, dismantled the whole concern,
and rebuilt and increased the number
of their ovens to fifteen, rebuilt and in
creased the size of their furnace, and in
every way improved and enlarged the
capacity of their works. Confining
themselves exclusively to the manu
facture of bottles of every description,
and a poition of the firm being practi
cally engaged in the business, they are
now turning out goods unsurpassed by
any. made in any establishment in the
Their outlay in the reconstruction of
their works, although n heavy draft on
the resources of a firm but barely es
tablished, has proved a judicious ex
penditure, since their increased capaci
ty barely enables them to supply the
demands of the trade which the su
perior quality of their wares is build
ing up. It speaks well for a firm
when its manufactures sell in the
market as fast as its utmost energy can
We are glad .to see Overseer Price,
with his chain-gang, engaged in the re
moval of the abominable accumula
tion of filth, which disgraces the city
and nauseates the inhabitants in the
vicinity of the mouth of Quincy street.
Thut pile is worthy the attention at any
time of a special, commission from
among the city fathers, and they should
bold their pow-wow some warm wet
day when its fetid steam hangs in the
air sickening as the stench of a cess
pool. It is a little strange that a pile
so obnoxious to the eye and noso and
so revolting to a decent respect for the
reputation of the city for cleanliness,
should have l?een allowed to accumu
late until it has reached the height of
six or eight feet above the street level.
The region in the vicinity of the B. Jc
O. II. R. is like an Augean stable, with
the addition of a variety of filth of
which the Augean stables were entirely
innocent. Mr. Ford has remonstrated
in vain with those who hauled thocom
ponents of this filthy heap and has
even forbidden the throwing of such
deposits upon the grounds belonging to
the B. A O. R. R. Co.
We are not sure that a mere leveling
down of tlds heap to tho grade of the
street will bo any remedy. It will only
unveil to the naked eye, hidden layers
of tho same accumulation, unimproved
by long repose in darkness. The entire
removal is what is properly demanded
if it can 1h> done. At any rate, a heavy
penalty should be imposed upon par
ties depositing any filth of any kind ;
there in the future. Nothing that will
effect tho air, should lie thrown there,
and clay and ashes deposited there
should never i>e allowed to accumulate
above tho street level.
Meeting of tiie Board of Super
visors of Ohio County.?Tho Board of
Supervisors of Ohio county held a reg
ular meeting at tho court house yester
There were present Messrs. Hupp*

Sundry bills against the county, for

Mr. Haudlin presented the following
resolution, which was tabled:
Resolved, That, under existing cir
cuinstances tho Board feels called upon !
to declare its determination to adhere
to and maintain the laws of this State
and of tho United States.
The debate on the above resolution
was animated and protracted.
The following was offered as an
amendment'by Mr. Saulsbury;
?'Provided, the laws passed by tho
legislature in nowise conflict with the
Constitution of the State."
Tho vote on tho amendment, by ayes
and noes, was as follows: Ayes: Franz

ed for, which resulted as follows: For:
Boggs. Franzheim, Goode, Saulsbury
and Wilson. Against: Handlan, Hupp,
Nicholl and Wallace.
And so the resolution was tabled, as
above spoken of.
Mr. Robert Campbell presented a pe
tition, asking that tho negroes of the
city bo allowed temporary use of the
Court-house as a place of worship.
On motion Dr. Hupp was appointed

Ruffianly Assault.?A young girl
residing with Mr. William Clark, near
Martinsville, Ohio, while returning
from a visit to her friends in this city,
on Sunday evening, was assaulted by
several ruffians a short distance above
the Wheeling Iron Works, with a de
sign of violating her person. One of
the villians drew a knife and threatened
to kill her if she screamed, but she paid
110 attention to their threats, and the
.scoundrels deterred by her cries and
her stubborn resistance, were obliged
to relinquish their Infernal purpose af
ter having torn her clothes literally to
shreds. One of the wretches bears the
marks of the brave girl's teeth upon
his hand. The police, should spare 110
pains to ferret out and bring to justice
the brutal perpretrators of such an
Our Methodist friends in East Wheel
I ing are pushing their new church en
terprise with a vigor which argues
speedy practical - results. They have
| already selected the site for the new
building, a lot on the corner of Zane
and Sixth streets, for which they paid
eight hundred dollars. The necessary
committees to collect fundsanda build
ing committee have been appointed.
We have been shown the design select
ed by the committee. It is of Anglo
Italian style, a style which, though
plain, is picturesque in its neatness.
The desire of the people in that part
of the city for a new church and the
energy with which their committees
1 are acting, bid fair to make the new
church a substantial reality among
them in a very short time.
C ntiiktoi'iiEii Enhinokr, who, our
readers will romemher, killed Lieut.
Armstrong, in a difficulty which oc
curred last summer, at the house of the
former in Martinsville, Ohio, was tried
at the recent session of Court in St.
Clairsville. After a full hearing of the
case the jury were unable to agree.
They were discharged and Mr. Ensinger
was again admitted to bail in the sum
of two thousand dollars for his appear
ance at the February term. Iiis friends
need entertain no fears pf his failure to
appear at the proper time, as we are
assured that ho expresses bis entire
willingness to stand or fall by a vordlct
of his countrymen.
"Valuarlh City Property for Salr.
?By our paper to-day it will be seen
that some valuable property is ofTered
for sale In the city. We think that now,
when property is advancing so rapidly
in value, and rents increasing, we may
say, enormously, capitalists will not l>e
slow to embrace the opportunities for
investments referred to.
Henderson's Pittsburgh Troupe.?
Last night this Troupe performed to a

Another entertainment will be given

of the train at our depot.
Elected.?Col. Thayer Melvin was
elected, on last Thursday week, prose

DISEASE OF IMPRUDENCE.
When the misguided and Imprudent votary
pleasure ff~J- *
as of this 1
of pleasure finds that he has imbibed the
seeds of this painful disease. It too often hap
pens that an Ill-timed sense of shame, or dread
of discovery, deters him from applying to
tliose who. from education and respectability,
can alone befriend him, dAlaving till the con
stltntlonal symptoms ol uus horrid disease
make their appearance, such as ulcerated sore
t'' -oat, diseased nose, nocturnal pains In the
bead and limbs, dimness of sight, deafhess,
nodes On the shin-bones and arms, blotches
on the head, face and extremities, progressing
with frightful rapidity, ^Ul at last tho palnte
of the mouth or the bones or the nose fall In,
and tho victim of this awful disease becomes
a horrid ohlect of commiseration, until death
puts n.period to his dreadful sufferings, by
sending him to "that undiscovered country
from whence no traveler returns."
It is a mrlancholu fact, that thousands fal.
victims to this terrible disease, owing to tho
unskilltalness of ignorant pretendem, who, by
the use of that deadly poison, Merrury, ruin
the constitution, and make the residue of life
