manifesto against vagrants. He is of opin

committed in the city are by these fellows
who live without visible means of support,
and who may well be called dangerous and
suspicious. As we stated yesterday,, the
Marshal and officer John Naddy discovered
seven of these chaps loafing round the de
pot watching for a chance to steal, and cap
tured them. - Before the Mayor yesterday
they gave , their names as Thomas Hoy,
Thomas Momu, James Bromley, Isaac T.
Williams, George Bingham, Wm. Wright
and Andrew Coffee. They were sent to the
stone pile to labor at 37 cents per diem
until the sum of 95 and costs each shall be
paid. Bernhard Burkman, another va

Letter from Dublin.
DUBLIN, O., July 17, 1868.
Ed. Statesman Dear Sir: Last Sun-
day evening Perry G. Watson, a regularly
apiMiinteu minister uy me toniereuce OI
the Christian Church, came into the "Im
maculate town ot Dublin and proceeded to
the Steward or Deacon of the Christian
Church to. get him to open the door and
light up, as be intended to preach to the
people. The Deacon, instead of opening
the church, told Mr. Watson that he could
not open the door for him, and that if he
attempted to enter he would- shoot him
with a rifle. (A pistol would have been
more convenient.) The reason tor this ac
tion, the Deacon t said, was because Mr.
Watson drove a considerable amount of
hogs through Dublin on the Sabbath.
Every one here knows that Mr. Watson
was driving his hogs toward home, and
was about ten miles from the point of his
destination when Saturday night overtook
him, and that a messenger was dispatched
for him with word that his child was
dying. . , . .
i - Mr. Watson, being an intelligent man,
knew this child might linger for several
days, and as he had promised to deliver the
hogs on Monday, he turned them out Sun
day morning and came through Dublin
with them: hence the action of the Deacon.
Perry G. Watson is an educated man, and
above all has sWong natural abilities, and
1 understand is a thoroughly moral man.
He has occupied the pulpit in the Christian
church for the last twelve years. He
preached last Sunday evening in the streets,
after being locked out of tiie church, and
at the close ot his sermon the people that
were present, to show him that their hearts
were with him, - raised a considerable
amount or money and presented it to him.

Come on, ministers, our Deacon can't lock
