L. K. HURFORD, Prin. Ever since election day, over a week since, the Democrat office has been besieged by an anxious throng of good X)emocratio voters, eager to hear all the news of the late momentous election. The throng is largely made up of honest.'hard-handed laboring men, who constitute the most of Amori ca's beit citizens, aud who are anxious for re form and better times. They are the ones who know best Just how things have been going of late, because the unpleasant results are brought directly to their doors, and many of these who, in the past, have had almost constant employment at fair wages, during a year er more gone have not been engaged more than one-third of the time, and then at wages greatly reduced. There is a cause for all this, and they see where It lies with their practical eyes, and are more sincerely anxious for a change than any other class of clti zens, and there is now a fair prospect that they will see such a change. George Smith, the owner and driver of the cele brated pacing horse, "Sleepy George," who was thrown from his sulky and somewhat bruised during the races In this city last month, met with a more serious adventure on the night of the ,6th Inst., in which he was the victim of a bold high way robbery. It was near his home in Iiland Creek township. Jefferson county, he was waylaid by three men, who robbed him of 11,000. George resisted, and discharged one shot from his revolv er at the villains, but was in turn disabled by a shot In the side and a simultaneous blow on the head, His wounds are not dangeious, A confused flock of geese executed some queer movements high above the housetops of Canton, last Thursday. The sun was obscured and in the misty atmosphere, the geese evidently lost their reckoning, and their usual regularity of flight oecame a scene or confusion, extremely interest lng to those who were fortunate enough to wit ness it They screamed and fluttered, flew in six or more dlfferent;dlrections In as many minutes, and seemed utterly lost They finally wheeled into line and flew northward, just opposite from the direction they wanted to go, but next day, a flock supposed to be the same, flew southward. Col. W. 8. Foulk, the weU known advertising agent, in the Gazette building, Pittsburgh, Pa., is our only authorized agent for Pittsburgh and vi cinity, to contract for any advertising whatever Col.

Blechclo'a and the Wrought Iron Bridge company's sares, numbers 16 and 17 on tho list of safes that have been cracked In Stark county during the last seven or eight months. These Jobs were cxt-cutcd last Friday morning. Mr. Bleehelo, being absent from home, left word with Paul Socio, night watchman at his soap works, to make a trip up to hlsresidence on an adjoining lot, at -Intervals during tho nights of his absence. About mid night Thursday last, Socle went up to his em ployer's resldeuco, aud returned to tho works. As ho entered the shop and closed the door, he was struck on the head with a club by one of te three men, who immediately tied au apron around his head, fastened his hands behind him, and conducted him to the olllce, where they las teued Mm to a chair with his back to the sate, promising not to gag him If he kept inlet, which he deemed best to do. They immediately drilled into the -afe lock, which they picked without the use of exploslvos, and securing about 8J3.00, left quietly, Socle still remaining fast to the chair, though he managed to extricate himself in tho course of half an hour after their departure. Mr. Socle is unable to give any description or clue which may lead to their Identity. This Is the same safe that the two Brownewell's and Hexa mer were going at when captured recently by the police. Number 17, or numbers 17 and 18 were the safes in the offices of the Wrought Iron Bridge company, and a dull explosion, supposed to have been caused by blowing one of These sues, wax heard by neighbors between three and four o'clock Friday morning. The cracksmen en tered by way of a window, and tho door of the safe In the Secretary's ollicc was literally blown to pieces. Small paper tubes, about the size of a man's finger wero found lying about next morn ing full of powder. The glass In a window close by the safo was shattered to fragments, but tho fellows secured only about one dollar aud a quarter. In an adjoining room was a very large and well-made Lipplncott safe, anil two holes were found drilled in the huge outer door of this, hut it was not otherwise injured. It was only by a mere fortunate mistake of tho financial agent of the Bridge company that the thieves did not secure a haul of several thousands of dollars. Friday was pay day at this shop, and the agent returned from a collecting trip with a large sura of money, but having failed to telegraph his coming to the secretary, he a.rivtd and found that individual gone from the offices and was un able to deposit his collections in cither of the safes himself and consequently put it ou deposit up town in a safer place. The rascals, knowing Friday was to be pay day, undoubtedly expected to make a big haul, and the pieces Into which the smaller Detroit safe door was blown, show plainly that they meant to be sure of their wora. Moiik Villainy. Last Sunday evening Fred Mer, clcik at C. Oberly & Sons was returning, with his family, from Massillon in a carriage.
