Mad Ox. One of these animals, possessed
possibly of a hydrophobic turn of mind, made
a atir in our streets the other day. Thursday,
as a boy was passing by uu horseback, Mr. Ox
made a clmrcv the collision raising the horse
from the ground, and tossing the boy over the
horse' head. No injury done.
Mail CAiccirus The settlers of Clarke's Creek
live now been without any mail for six weeks.
Five pickagts of our papers are lying at this
po3t office. Wo cannot imagine what the mutter
is. for Uu: weather has been all this time as fine
as (vo liavt, ever known it in May, while citizens
have been constantly crossing the river and if
the carrier had the disposition he could cross too.
It is an imposition upon the people along this
route too gilcvous to be borne, and demands the
immediate attention of the contractor or the
Department at Washington. "V 7
Tommv.-Wc allude to the ferryman across the
Republican. lie is a genius. Old settlers have
become accustomed to him, and have pretty much
quit growling. Tommy is a good f-llow, but lit

" Sure it'll get wet, ami who can handle it when

O Dr. Hughes, and another man, from S ilina,
while on their return fiom the Cimaron, wheYe
they had been for some time hunting, were ovr
Likin 1 13-a paiiy of Indians, who robbed them
of all tiny had about their persons. Fottunately.
they left their lurs bthind tlitm, their mission to
thr settlements being for the purpose of obtaining
traiispnttation. The Doctor wore a fancy calico
ehirt. which so pleased the tasty ted nun that he
wns compelled to take it off. '1 he Indians were
all a foot, each with a lariette in his hand, evi
dently on a hoise stealing expedition.

nUeitliwly thiough its entire length. He re
Counted the virion fraud upon the people of
vansis from their earliest history up to this l..st
monster, demonstrating the mollifying fact that
4W- ati- a fraud-ridden people. He appro ichrd
the suhjtet unprejudiced, and consequently viih
nlore cfi'cct denounced the iniquity. He opposed
the fraud foP various reasons the election was
out of season, thereby defrauding the people of a
voice in the matter, the trickorj and corruption
by which it was effected, and lastly the person
chosen. He dwelt upon Carney's unfitness, and
m.ule'somc laughable hits aboutthe Gubernator's
assertion, " I've got the monc" He gae the
fiuanceenng of the Governor the severest scath
ing wo have ever heird any policy gtt. He
proved by documents the Governor to be un
truthful in hi statements. A bare recital of the
trickery at the Capital is sufficient to awaken
the people, to a realizing sense of the danger
threatening their liberties.

r In our issue of last week we took occasion
to say th'ut T. F. Hirsey, the Representative from
Dickinson, was committed against the action of
ftie'Lcgishiture in electing a Sojiator th:a winter,
and "we sow reeut it.r notwithstanding an in

act of injustice and wrong toward the peoplo.
