0. C. Giur, Esq. This distinguished gen
tleman, born ond educated in our city, aud
for a number of years a practicing lawyer at
this Bar, is now residing at Ottawa, La Salic
county.Ili'. It is with great pleasuro we no
tice the many high compliments paid to his
talents and worth in his adopted State. Mr.
Gray learned his Jessous of Democracy in
Ohio, at a time when the parly possessed in
tegrity and independence, to express its abhor
rence to the encroachments of the "hlavo pow
er," and he ha.s carried the principles which
he then imbibed to his present locality. The
" Ottawa Republican, of the 11th inst in
speaking of his position and standing says :
" 0. 0. Gray , Esq., of this city, replied to
Judge Douglas, at Pontiac, on Thursday of
last week. The Seutinel of that pluce pronoun
ces it one of the best speeches, of the Reason.
Mr. Gray deseives Hit) thanks of the Repub
lican party, for having thus uarly in the cam
paign thrown the weight of hi energy and
ability on the side of Right. This is moat
emphatically, a period when the eurtient and
Ardent efforts of all, are required to insuro
Success, aud the telling blows he has already
desk the African Democracy" at Ucnay and
Pontine, will, we trust be coutiuued till the
campaign is ended and the victory achieved."
, MARttitD. On the evening of the 7l.h inst.,
at the residence of the Bride's Father, by the
Rev. Thos. Elcock, John I. Cable, one of the
proprietors of " The American' and Miss R.
A. Johnson, all of Van Wert. The other at
tachces of "The American," after the cake
and sweet meats, , were discutsed united iu
expressions of desire for pi osppi ity aud happi
ness to the young conple.-Vanwcrt American.
DIED. On the morning of the 20th inst.,
Mrs. CATHARINE IIANNA, wife of Mr.
THOMPSON HANNA, of this city, after a
painful illness of many weeks, iu ihu 5Gih
year of htr age.
Mrs. IIanna, in early life, made a pro
fession of tho Christian religion, and united
with the Methodist Church. At an early
period, with her husband, she was identi
fied with 'the M. P. Church of this city,
and remained a faithful member of its com
munion to tho time of her death.
Panegyrics on the departed are not in
good taste; but, to speak of the good qual
ities of our friends who have gone to the
spirit land, and to urge the emulation of
their virtuous acts, is by no means improp
er. Never have we had tho pleasure of an
acquaintance with a lady, whose life and
whole deportment, appeared to bo more
fully conformed to the pure principles of
the Gospel than that of Mrs. IIanna.
Whether we th ink of lier in the light of a
Wife, a Mother, a Christian or a neighbor :
her entire life and conduct was worthy of
the emulation of all. She bore her last
painful illness with that Christian fortitude
which had characterized her former life ;
ond calmly passed away from earth, to that
rest which "romainoth for the people of
Uod. While her bereaved husband, chil
dren and numerous friends are left to mourn
the departure of one bo dear to them ; it is
a consoling reflection, that they "sorrow
not as those who havo no hope." By the
imitation of tor pious example they may,
through the irlerits of Him, in whom
she trusted, secure, with ber, apart in tho
First Resurrection ; and be forever with
the i Lord. Our sincere1 sympathies are
with the bereaved family. '

A Queer Organ. TLe Chicago Na
tional Union was established as an Ad
ministration organ. After a while it began
to give uncertain sound and about the
lime of the Buchanan State Convention
in Illinois got so out of tune that Mr.
Sehade was discharged from the editor
ship. Postmaster Cook & Co., then
furni?hed the wind and funds to keep
the Union from Jisolution, and it was
savagely anti Douglas for a few weeks.
Another change has come over the Union.
Mr. Scliade is again editor, the ami-Douglas
articles are all taken back, and Cook,
Rebi, Buchanan & Co., are put under the
ban. What next? ri-eader.

Scott's City Boot and Shoe Store.
This superior establishment, has recently
been replenished by a choice Bupply of

There is perhaps, no Shoe Store in tho
Western country, in which is to be found
a more tastefully selected stock of Boo's,
Shoes, Gaiters, Slippers and Sandals, than
at Scott's " tip top" store.
Tho proprietor keeps constantly a num
ber of experienced hands at work, and is
prepared to manufacture work to order, on
tho shortest notice. The quality of the
material used, corresponds with the skill
displayed by the workmen. As an eminent
pulpit orator, with whom we were acquain

tion becamo highly excited by the sublim
ity of his thenie' here we might enlarge'
to an infinite cTtent, but wo leave it to
your fruitful imagination to fill up the pic

and wo are done. Young and old, male
and female, go to Scott's popular Shoo
Store, directly opposite tho Washington
Hall, und make your purchases if you de

Gaiters and Slippers. Those wishing to
purchase any articlo in his line, cannot do
better than to give him a call. As he deals

prepared to sell at very small profits.
He has also, a number of first rate work
men constantly employed, and can do work
to order, on tho shorted notice. Persons

03" A correspondent of the Chicago
Press says that a serious, if not fatal acci
dent occurred at Lewislon, Fulton co.',
111., on the 16th. Mr. Douglas spoke to
the crowd, and in the evening a barrel of
fire-works had been procured for a 'demon'
strntion,' became ignited accidentally, and
exploded in the in i dot of a crowd. Five
persons were knocked down instantly, stun
ned and badly burned. A Miss Paine, a
young lady residing between Lewiston and
Havana, was struck in the neck by a rock
et, which almost immediately buret in hor
lace. She was taken up senseless; her
face was horribly burned, her bonnet and
part of her hair torn off, and a ghastly
wound inflicted under her right ear. She
is still living, but the physicians are doubt
ful of her recovery. ,
Kidnapping a White Man. The Bur
lington Gazette gives an'account of the
kidnapping of a blacksmith of thut place,
a short time ago, by a couple of Missouri
cng, with the assistance of a city officer.
John Pendleton, the man who was kidnap,
ped, had been in Burlington two years and
a half, working at his trade, and had al
ways been regarded and treated as a white
man. X wo iuissourians camo there a short
time ago, and under the claim that he was
an escaped slave, induced certain persons
to aid them in decoying him into the coun
try, where they handcuffed him and start-
td to Missouri.

great pressure of the times, when one
large firm after another is being driven to

to do a flourishing business in their ex

answer is, "They have a large and well

is satisfactory, and all flock to Frohman's
with the exception of those who are so
unwise as to stay away make their pur
chases, and return home satisfied with
their bargains. The people are delighted.

For the rapid jjcure or Coughs, Coids,
Hoarseness, Bronchitis, Wliooping-Cough,
Asthma and Consumption, is universally
known as the best remedy ever yet discov
ered for every variety of Pulmonary disease.
So wide is the field of its usefulness and
so numerous tho cases of its cures, that'
almost every section of the country abounds
in persons publicly known, who have been
restored from alarming and even desperate
diseases of the ungs tiy its use. When
once tried its superiority over every other
medicine of its kind Is too apparent to es
cape observation, and where its virtues
are known, the public no longer hesitate
what antidote to employ for the distressing
and dangerous affections of the pulmonary
organs which are incident to our climate.
By its timely use many, nay almost all
attacks of disease upon the Lungs or throat
are arrested and thus are saved many
thousands every year from a premature
grave. No family should be withont it,
and those who do neglect to provide them
selves with a remedy which words off this
dangerous class of diseases will have cause
to deplore it when it is too late. Proofs
of tho surprising efficacy of the Cherry

THE essential ingredient of this valuable
remedy is not new, but is well known to
the medical schools of France and Germany,
and linn been employed by the females of the
principal courts of Europe.-and by all ihe most
distinguished physiciaus in this speciality for
the last ten years. My motive is not to offer
any patent discovery, but simply to present to
the mcthers and daughters of our own laud a
simplo bnt sure remedy for those diseases to
which they are naturally subjected, in such a
form as should obviate the necessity of those
medical consultations, which aro justly looked
upon by women as a violation of their most
sacred feelings, and to avoid which" they often
risk the most fearful consequences.
1 have jtherefora prepared this specific in
the neat and simple form of a pill, aud put it
up iu small, flat boxes, which cau safely be
sent any distance by mail iu a common envel
ope. Each box is accompanied with full di
rections and esplanatlous, enabling every
woman to understand her own case and the
proper treatment aud tho proper time.
The Virgin Pills possess such powerful
penetrating properties that nono of tho diseas
es within the range of their action can with
stand or evade them. They cleanse, purify,
and invigorate every portion of the female
organism, correcting its diseased action, and
restoring its healthy functions, They effect a
certain cure for falling of the womb, whites,
paiuful suppression und irregular menstrua
tion, diseases of pregnancy, all uervious com
plaints caused by disordered uterine organs,
weaknesses, ifcc, the symptoms of which are
fully explained in the directions.
For any of the diseases of the treproductive
organs, they may be taken at all times, excep
ting during the earlier stages of preg
nancy, when their efj'cct would be such
as to produce miscarriage, which fact
is more fully explained in the directions.
Their action on the system will be felt imme
diately, and the flush of rosy beauty, the true
index of health, quickly rising iu the cheek
of pallor, will at onco convince the patient of
their effect.
