LCCTI'REH.—Some enthusiasts have
been talking up the plan of having
Tipton aud Mechanicsville join in a
ourse of Lectures, half of
them to be given at each place and
excursion trains be provided for which
should not increase the cost of attend
ance. Figures show that such a train
could be hired out of the increased in
come from such a union and still
leave a surplus above the receipts of a
course iu a single town.
TiiEhogshipping item we published
last week was only made
louder hy the
addition of shipments Friday aud
Saturday. Nine loads went out on the
last day named, making a total of
loads for the five consecutive
days. The sixteen hundred, or more,
hogs thus contributed must have
brought into this vicinity in the neigh
borhood of $25,000. Hogs are a good
thing to have Cedar is a good place to
raise 'em and Tipton is the lcst place
to sell 'em.
A GOOD PAPER.—Every body knows
the Independent, of New York, as the
leading, most enterprising, and, ali
agree, most readable ami instructive
of our numerous religious papers. It
is now slow to recognize the fact that
the popular passion for Chromos has
died out, and it makes the remarkable
offer of any one volume of Dicken's
Works, a handsomely illustrated and
bound duodecimo, to anybody who
will subscribe antl send the regulur
Three Dollars subscription. This is
equivalent to offering the paper for a
dollar and a half. Everybody wants
some volume of Dickens, and every
body ought to want the Independent.
AN elopement sensation comes from
quiet neighborhood near Stanwood.
A young man named Davis, It appears,
obtained the consent of a young lady,
but not that of her parents. He urged
her to fly with him and she agreed to
flew. Accordingly last week Monday,
after that mantle of darkness of which
the novelists tell had "done descend
ed he drew near the residence of the
ladye fay
re, armed no doubt with the
traditional roiie ladder and close car
riage. At all events, the lady skipped
out, unbeknown to the family, and the
wain skipped over to Stan wood,
called into requisition the services of
a divine and were duly made one.
Then the newly made wife was re
turned to the parental roof as quietly
she had left it, and the young hus
band went to his home, deeply im
iressed, no doubt, with the beauties of
wedlock. But for all that, he does not
seem to have been wholly satisfied, as
he put in an appearance next morning
before his father-in-law, ami claimed
and carried away his bride.
DISTRICT Cot-RT convened for the
Decent Iter term in Cedar county, on
Monday last at one o'clock—Judge
Shane on the bench and all the offi

Quite a number of attorneys from
abroad are in attendance—among
them Judge Riehman of Muscatine,
Ed. Cook of Daveniort, I. M. Preston
of Marion, S. H. Fairall of Iowa City,
and Mr. Jameson of Olln. The Cedar
county bar is fully represented by the
entire Tipton delegation, and four
members from Clarence and two or
three from Mechanicsville.
A number of eriminal cases are on
docket for trial, with the chance for
the grand jury to increase them
definitely. The county jail is chock
full of prisoners, some eight or ten of
whom, as yet not Indicted, were ar
raigned in a body Monday and given
opportunity to challenge the grant
jury, which they did not accept. The
case from Jones County wherein
multitude of witnesses come forward
at the last term to prove either that
one Robt. Johnson did or did not steal
calves, is to be tried over—the former
jury having agreed to disagree,
number of other important and more
or less lengthy cases have been import

work are on hand—ooncerning

THE ADVERTISER received, only
four days before election, a copy of n
paper published at Greenville, South
'aroliua, which contained a general
and strong denial of all charges that
iolence had been done in that State
from political motives. It declared
that the Democratic rille-clults were
as peaceful as any northern political
organizations, and that no colored
man had suffered injury or intimida
tion at their hands. This declaration
was signed by a nuniherof persons wlm
called themselves "Northern men
among them by Mr. Frank Hammond,
of Tipton, Iowa, who sent the paper
to us antl requested the publication
here of the article in question. As
any notice of the matter before elec
tion was impossible, we probably
should not have referred to it at all
had It not been for a letter from South
'arollna to the New York
which is published on the first paire
of this paper under caption of "No
oree." The letter, coming well
authenticated, as have many others of
similar .tenor, explains fully
men who live in some orderly village
ity may not know —especially if
they do not wish to believe—anything
of the terrors of midnight visits to
lonely cabins. To the native South
erner, the simple statement that i
'nigger" was "impudent" quite jus
tifies any punishment that might be
inflicted on him ami when these peo
pie certify to their own good behav
ior they are always careful to say that
no violence lias been done for
reasons- a provision contained in
the Greenville certificate. While wc
freely admit that Mr. Hammond
would sign nothing which lie did not
believe to be true, the abundant evi
dence—from Hamburg antl Cainhoy
forward—is such that we arc forced tt
the conclusion that either he believes
nothing which he has not seen,
else that lie has adopted the Southern
idea about "making the nigger
keep his place," antl considers all dis
turhanees to hai*fe arisen I'roiu this
necessary effort, instead of from politi
al causes.
