REMOVED.-The Star Clothing House has been removed to
the corner room in the new brick. Tee Democrat SdWKlMr. .TTdj/g,, f. Tin: Republicans (it* Maryland are for Grant. Out oxehnnges note a consider able depression in the Iron busi ness. It is pretty generally conceded Unit a large majority uf the delega tion from West Virginia, to the Na tional Republican Convention will lio for lilaine. Tub regular Washington scribler. to the Wheeling /?'rgister is writing all kinds of nonsense nnri falsehoods to that paper for the purpose of destroying Tilden's chances for tlic Presidency. It is estimated that the emigra tion from Ireland ami Germany thin year will exceed r>00,(X)0. The cause of this unusually large, cxni gration to our country this year is the famine in Ireland and the barbarous tyranny of .Bismarck in (lermany. Senator JI. G. Davis, of this State, who was appointed some time since as chairman of a com mittee to investigate certain al leged discrepancies in the Treasury Department, has made his report. This report shows considerable crookedness on the part of the Secretaries of the Treasury from IStil to 1871. At a meeting of the Nail Manu facturers held at Pittsburg this week the card prices for nails was reduced from i>.r> to $1 00 per kog. This is a considerable reduc tion, but the iron boom run nails and all kinds of iron far dcyond a legitimate profit for their produc tion and we expressed the opinion several months ago, that the iron men were making a great mistake in running the iron boom so high. The boom is.At an end ar.d the fall is great. ' Tub llcpubliean State Conven tion, of Ohio, held this week in structed for Sherman. The Democrats of Connecticut and Pennsylvania also held State conventions this week; while no instructions were given, by either convention to tho delegates ap pointed to attend the Cincinnati Democratic National Convention, it is generally believed that tho delegates from both States are for Tilden. The Republican of Kansas and Iowa are not happy. Tho Maine men seem to have got a considera ble start in those Slates and Grant's friend charge the advan tage gained l?v the Blaine men, has been accomplishment by fraud. Anoihti' ltichmoml. It peems that Colonel Alex. Campbell is not to bo alone in con testing Colonel lien. Wilson for a seat in Congress from this district. A Harrison county man. a neigh bor of the sitting* member, writes to tho l!egi*tcr bringing out for the place an Ohio county man in the person of Sherift'Tingle. Mr. Tin gle is reither a lawyer nor a Colonel, but. ho has tho reputation of being a pretty wide-awake business man, and if ho goes into the Convention with his county solid at his back In1 will doubtless make it interesting for his military competitors.? Winding h'syitUr. ? Mr. Tinglo will make a good Representative, lie has been all his life a true, faithful and cflicient Domocrat. and has many warm, personal friends in this section of the State. Wiiatkvkk else may lie doubtful: about the intention of the authors of our tarill' laws, they undoubted ly meant to place on the free list all muteiw.Is used in the manufac ture of papers. It happened that pulp * f wood, which is )>y far the most important olement in the manufacture of paper used br the daily and weekly press of tho coun try, was not specifically and by name exempted from duty. Under a Treasury decision which held that this verbal omission was fatal to the free admission of wood pu!j?. a few manufacturers of that article have been able to impose an ex orbitant tax on the general body i>f paper-makers, l?v whom, of course, it is shifted on the consumers, the newspaper publishers of tho coun try, ami the burden falls with special hardship on publishers out side of the great cities?we. conse nuontly, being impoverished soj that a handful of monopolists may ?jrow rich. The most power- j Jul of these monopolists is Representative Garfield. Were i .his opposition to tho bill with drawn, tho restoration of wood I ]iii)]? to the free list, where it be longs, would be accomplished in1 a few davp. While his opposition continues the monopolists are1 secure. Can Mr. Garfield afford to j continue his support of a most odious and oppressive tax which j brings in no revenuei to tho Govern ment, but which? interferes very; docidedlv with the dissemination of knoCvfodge among the people??! JCxcAavye. ? M'o call the attention of our1 Uepresontativcs in Congress to the. above and trust they will use their influence for the removal of the) ..imposition spoken of. *'ifTiiTi'ai'i' i iwiihrsifiiMii n i" rr:i Jonathan M. lien net t> fur State Senator, j Tothr I atcrtof fjtwis, Upth nr,Harbour A Taylor, HuvJoljth and Tucker Coun ties : Kbi.i.oh*-Citizkns I take pleas ure in presenting to you Jonathan : M.

And the man who is capable and willing to give his time and labor to the task of renovating and building it up, deserves recognition by the people. Jonathan Jf.

The Washington friends of lilaiuo are conniving at Iho sending out. if not themselves sending uiit, pam phlets and articles denouncing the Other radical candidates. How these brethren love one another! Jt is said that House Democrats have determined to suppress dis cussion of the Kellogg Spollard contest in the .Senate. It is to be | done in this way: At the last Senate Democratic caucus it was j determined to go on with the ap 1 proprintiou bills as fast as received j from the iiouse, to tho exclusion I of nil other, matters. Tho House j Democrats will send the appropri ation hills to tho .Sonate, so they I say, fast enough to keep tho Seii | ate busy. There is one weakness I in this programme. It is (he i louse more tli.111 the Senate, which | has delayed work thus far. How-i t ever, t he idea is a good one.

In a late is>ue of your paper L read :i letter from Harrison coun ty mentioning the name of Hon. George U. Tingle as heing spoken of as a suitable person to lead the Democratic hosts. As a citizen of Harrison county imbued with a sense of just pride, in home candi dates, recognizing with gratitude and thanks the service of Col. Wil son, our present representative, I can not yet believe tiiat his claims nor the claims 'of his county, to Congressional honors, are secured by!"letters patent." ' The nomination of George R. Tin gle would be a just and proper rec ognition of the rights of Ohio coun ty, whose large Democratic vote jriressnch material aid to elect our nominee, and from whoso ranks no Democrat has yet been selected to represent us in the federal Congress. It would also be a just and proper recognition of Tingle's cHicifnt ser vice "for the success of Democratic principles, lie has the entire con fidence of his party, a man of line pratieal sense, true, tried and hon est. i I is nomination would give general satisfaction and bring the full voting strength of his party in the First district, and ho would make a spirited and successful can vass. Without saying anything to the disparagement of any oft ho va rious candidates, who may hoi warmly advocated by their friends, 1 do say this, that Sir. Tingle is a| gentleman eminently qualified forj the position, understanding the wants of the people; in sympathy with the masses; despising corrup tion. his well known honesty and purity of character, with a knowl edge of his hitherto efficient service i for the success of the fundamental principles of the Democratic party will make him a most acceptable nominee Knowing his unllaging ing zeal, his tireless energy, direct ed by his sound judgment, f feel confident that the interest of the First district would he safe placed in his hands. 12. A I la tin led Mem or a of J Hood. C'outmM's, April 27?Our city and county.were.thrown into a fe verish state of excitement by the developments made by William 1\ Gillespie on his ;death-bed. Some ten or twelve years ago a wealthy stock trader bv the name of "James Jamison, who lived in Johnson county, not far from the corner of the counties of Bartholo mew and Urown, was mysteriously missing from home, and' all kinds of rumors were afloat in regard to his whereabouts. One theory was that he had got all the money he; could get together and had dccunip-1 cd for parts unknmvn. and another, and the most probable, was-that! ho had been murdered, which, tliej sequel shows was true. A few day ago the man Gillespie died, amli just before that event took place, I after he had given up all hopes of recovery, he told his friends he had a startling story to tell concerning the death of old man Jamison, whose disappearance had caused so iiiiii'h tain ten or twelve years (ago. lie saitl that himself mid J two othera shot and .killed Jamison |on what is called Hurricane Uidge. ii wild'and lonely plan*, and buried his body in a dense thicket near the roadside. Xo trace of the missing man was ever found, except his horse, saddle and bridle, which were afterward found in the possession of one of | the three, who accounted for it hv saving that he had Lought them of tlii* old man before lie went oil". Gillespiestated that they go$l.Gi>.) in casli, and frl.OW in notes, which they destroyed, one Inking the horse, saddle and bridle in the di vision. A son of Jamison, who formerly resided in this city, but resides in Jonesville, this county, passed ; through hen* this morning for Gil lespie's neighborhood, to go to the I bottom of t he foul murder and bring it to light, if possible. Ho is a determined man and will leave nothing undone to bring the bloody I fiends to justice. Victims of the Storm St. I,oris, April 27.
