Sudor Committed in Wells Township,
in this County.
On 8anday, the 11th iust., a man by
the name of John Robinson, residing on
8lt Run, Wells tp., was shot by a man
named Wm. Roe.- Roe, wo are informed,
rested his gun on the corner of his house,
took deliberate aim and fired the ball en
tered the body of Robinson and passed out
at the opposite side. He lived but a few
hours. The cause of this distressing event
U said to be jealousy. Roe and his wife
had been for some tinio separated, "and he
blamed Robinson for the separation.
A warrant was issued on Monday, for
the arrest of Roe, but he has not yet been
is creating much uneasiness." - Jta inten
tion is, evidently, only to tax the proper
ty of those who, residing outsido the city,
but dcriviug their means from business they
carry on here escape, city taxation; but
not foreign capital employed by the agents
of houses abroad.
The fear, however, of its being different
ly constructed by tha assessors, who are
now just commencing making assessments,
is driving some capital hence to neighbor
ing cities.
The Merchants' Bank sent away, just
before the bill passed, and in view of its
passing, a large amount of capital, and to
day a report is abroad that the British Bauk
of North America is about to remove its
capital to Boston for employment.
Doubts, however, are entertained of the
construction that the assessors may put on
the laws, and the agents of foreign houses
are awaiting their action before they gener
ally conclude to abandon New York for one
sister cities on tho Atlantic board. .
One of the missing boxes of gold which
was sent by the steamer by the Nicaragua
aoute previous to the recent arrival has
been discovered among the coal in the
steamer Sierra Nevada on the Pacific side,
The fraud was evidently connected in San
Francisco; and tho thief or assistant thief
was unable to carry away more than one
of the two boxes he had secreted. The
boxes which were substituted for those
containing the gold were shipped ou board
at San Francisco. AT. Y. Putt.
In this day of "awful exposes" we think
the publio will be interested in the follow
ing affair which we find in the Bucyrus
Journal of March 1st. "Sam's," councils
and secret organization, with their "mid
night orgies" must knock under now. The
"each nichts" are introducing somo new
Save you seensam?
We have heard a great nany inquiries
about Sam, of late, and th . ost a num
ber of weeks since, jld he was round.
However that maybe, Sam has been seen
in Boston. , ..L'st week we both sw and
beard him the old veteran Sam Houston,
he hero of the Lone Star State, nis lec
ture on the struggles for freedom in Tex
as, was received with expressions of appro
bation bv an immense audience, at the
Tremont Temple; and his remarks to the
young Saras, at the Musio Hall, were full
f enopurageuient for the American cause.
. Hut whatever may be Lis excellencies in
the field, or in tho Senate, we like his sen
- timents on domestic life quite as w ell, as
thown by the followiug anecdote from the
Western Christian Journal:
Influence of Women. Seuator Houston
vai onoe asked, at a large party given to
Mr. Speaker Winthrnp, why he did not
attend tho usual places of amusement, as
be had been accustomed to. His reply
wu this let it be remembered by the
mothers and daughters of America.
"I make it a point," said the honorable
8enator, "never to visit a place where my
wife if she were with me, would bo unwil
ling to go. I know it would givo her pain,
a Christian, to attend such places, and I
will not go' m j self where I cannot take
A member of Congress present alluded
io his own wife, nud added that there was
i mutual understanding between him and
Utt, that each should follow the bent of
their own inclinations in such matters.
"That may do for you,'' responded Mr.
Houston, "but with me it is different from
what it is with most men. ' My wife has
been the making of me. She took me
'when I was tho victim of slavish appetites,
he had redeemed and regenerated me, and
I will not do that in herabsenco which 1
know would give her pain il Bhe wcie pros
tut." Mr. Houston is a member of a
Baptist Church aud a native of Alabama.
This it ft uoble tribute to the influence
of woman, and shows that Gen. Houston
his ft heart that can render praise where
It belongs, and that he respects the feelings
of bis wife more than he desires his own
personal gratifications. Such man is
worthy of .11 honor, while he who trifles
with the feelings and happiness of his wife
deserves the contempt of his race. We
tiked the appearance and sentiments of the
ld General, and sreglad that we have

One G. W. Johns "an official of Gener
al Pierce," and two democrats, Hall and
Jackson, started for Richland by Rail, to
form a Sach Nicht Society, aud reached
that place Feb. 10th. Tho faithful met
them, and got into a regular spree. "Drunk
came" aud brought in the marshal, who
nabbed G. W. Johns, while others, being
swifter of foot, managed to escape. There
upon this worthy wrote as follows to tho
editor of the Crawford county 'Journal:
Mansfield, Feb. 1G, 1855.
Dear Sir: Hero I am as tight as thun
der, and a good deal tighter than any of us
were when the Marshal undertook to nab
the whole gang for getting struck with
"Jersey Lightning." Fortunately for you
fellows you were a little more nimble
than I was, and understood the private al
leys with which I, being a ' stranger, was
unacquainted. Dut I do not think you
and Hall and Jackson displayed the right
kind of disposition to jump and run, lea
ving me alone, to drop into the hands of an
officer without having. any intimation giv
en of the proximity of the police.
The success of the administration and
the certainty of obtaining our reward de
pends on our keeping united. But the idea
of forming a Sach Night association in
Mansfield is all knocked in tho head for
the present, (confound that Muscat of
Shack's.) Gen. Pierce will think that I
I am a devilish queer clerk, and am "doing
up" his business in beautiful style by
getting into such a confounded scrape.
Really, I cannot help but blame you fellows;
but no matter now. The Mansfield Guards
arc all right, so the Postmaster tells me.
As soon as I go t clear of this arrest I will
let you know, and you and Hall and Jack
son can oorae over and assist me in organi
In haste, yours, G. W. JOHNS.
Hero was a fix, but G. W. Johns is

fore the Mayor, changed his mind, and "cut

ted at.
Ashland, Feb. 17, 1855
Here I am clear aud clean, and having
the letter which I wrote at Mansfield still in
ray pocket, I will continue an explanatory
note in connection and remit to you. You
don't catch mo in Mansfield again. The
Mayor, not having time to go into an ex
amination, bound me over to appear tho
next (this) morning for examination,
got some of my friends? to enter bail for
me and afterwards found out that they are
putting the temperance law in force with
out any distinction as td the standing or
connection of the person arrested. Seeing
no chance for myself if I came to trial I
"cut stick" and left the bail for it.
I would havo had some compunction
about doing that if they had treated me
right, but I had hard work to coax my
friends to bail me, and even then I had to
promise that I would say a "good word"
for themo tfio President, in case there
should happen any mail agenoics or other
cnvernnient offices to be filled. With the
certificates that I had in my possession from
Pierce, and other leading men of Washing
ton and of this State, and of which they
hud 'full knowledge, I think it was their
duty to step forward" promptly, and assist
me; but when I found how backward nd
shy they were, I determined that if I got
thorn Into it I would let them stick; and
I did. and aw not the least sorry for it

great reputation with the powers that be
at Washington and of course your name
as well as the names of some other leaders
of your county stand high on the list of
the President's favor. If we can push tire
Sag Nicht association through and keep
strong enough to carry the next Presiden
tial election you may all expect to obtain
a reward fully equivalent to the majority
your county will give, you know the terms,

to a chargeship with other offices for other
leaders. The post offices of course you get
Our name takes well with the Dutch,
but it does not go down well with the
Irish. But the Irish have no help for
themselves. The Know Nothings are down
on the Catholics, and that fixes them. If
I am rightly informed, the Germans are
strong in Crawford, and there are but few
Irish to conciliate, fo that I see no difficul

By oversight these rich letters wero sent
to the Bucyrus Journal. The editor of tho
former did not exactly understand them,
having neither sympathy with sick or Sag
Nicht, but concluded something rich was
"leaking out." So ho publisued them!
j But'tho day after, a note, a precious note,
was received by him, tho close of which is
as follows:
Ashland, Feb. 18th, 1855.
Editor Bucyrus Journal Sir; It is on
ly necessary to say that it (the letter) was
misdirected, and will in all probability fall
i i i .i .
into your uauas. as tne contents are
strict! mif a privato nature, I trust that if
you get this before you receive that, ' that
that you will return it to my address at
this place without opening it.
If perchance,- it should have reached
you and you should havo opened it, I will
be under lasting obligations to you if you
will re-encloso and return it to mo, for
which service I will remit you ten dollars
as soon as I get it.
Yours truly, G. W. J.

activity, and in a country of great and va
rious literary rivalry, where, in the absence
of an international copyright, the choicest
works of the best foreign genius are to be
bad for tho taking, tho task was uot easy,
of founding and sustaining a magazine, ut
once universal in its sympathies,-nnd na
tional in its tone. The continued and in
creasing favor with which the monthly has
been received, is the bet possible proof
that tho task has bceu in somo degree ful
filled. The ucw. volume of the magazine
commeuces under the best possible auspi
ces. Its position is now assured. Two
years have demonstrated the extent of its
circle of friends, and that circle is constant
ly widening. The magazine has not only
the sympathy, but the actual literary sup
port of the most eminent authors iu the
country. Tho greatest care is exercised in
the selection of articles for its pages, trom
the immense number of mss. received a
number now aruouuting to moro than 1800.
In so ijreat a press of material to be con
sidered, the publishers appeal confidently
for patieuce to all who tavor them with
their contributions, while they heartily
thank them for their good will. Y hue care
is taken that nothing in the remotest de
gree offensive to propriety or good taate de
faces these puircs. aud the ablest talent is
secured to make a magazine, which, for va
riety oi interest, and excellence ot tone,
shall be surpassed by no similar publica
tion in the world, tho publishers assure the
publio that their motto is still onward, and
that every year's experience will enable
them more fully to deserve the favor which
they so gratefully acknowledge.
