a communication bearing upon two
individuals, supposed to bo the authors of
several anonymous articles that recently
appeared in the Ind'pemlent. The author of
that communication lias since? been formally
demanded by F. Hollcnbeck and D. W. II.
Day, claiming themselves to be the persons
described therein. Upon the impulse of the
moment wo wero inclined to the belief that
if they were the individuals meant, perhaps
some injustice had been done them, and at
that time if w e had chanced to meet either
of tin tu we would have given them the
author's name. However, on second reflec
tion, we have thought proper to change our
course on the admission of matter to our
columns, and of course hold ourselves amen
able to tho laws.
So far as Mr. Hollcnbeck is concerned, we
we havo pretty satisfactory evidence that
he was the author of a fair proportion ot
the scurrilous articles that appeared in the
Toledo Times, lust Benson, abusing the Re
publican party, as well as the character of
citizens belonging to that party. He has
also the credit of contributing the same
class of literature to the I.uh-penileut, wit
this difference: Instead of the Republican,
it is now the Union partv. For this reason
we shall not furnish the name of the author
of "Dry as Dust, Jr." to him at present.
To Mr. Day we have several reasons for
not desiring to furnish the name of the au
thor. One of these is that on the dav of the
Union County Convention, he divulged a
concerted scheme for Hooding this eountv
with circulars, (to a gentleman whom he sup.
posed would keep the secret) by which
means a wholesale system of the abuse of
private character is to be inaugurated to
defeat one or more of the candidates on the
Union Ticket. Mr. Day also told our in
formant that upon these circulars would be
..i i .i . ..... i ... ..
liaeeu uie names oi -jior.est (.) men as
candidates for the various county offices.
and that the people of Wood county would
be asked to support the nominees of this
"dark-lantern clique," more unpopularly
known hereabouts as the " short-and-dirty
clique, in order to put down
corruplionl There are other reasons, some
of which "Dry as Dust" miry be persuaded
to relate in a future correspondence, if Mr.
Day wishes.
As we said before, we shall not allow any
thing of a personal character to appear in
our columns, unless tlm utturk first eotnes
from tic ojtposition. So far, the Joiunal'r
writers have acted entirely on the defesive.
and will probably continue to do so.

Wood County Fair.
On Wednesday next commences the elev
enth annual exhibition of the Wood county
Agricultural Society. The managers pro
ent this year a greater inducement in the
increased vmoutit of premiums offered than
has ever before been proffered nt ntiy of our
previous fairs. The premiums proposed to
bo given on Horses and Tattle are over SI 00.
That on sheep over S.10. and many other
things in proportion. Crops of all kinds
have been good this year, and "plenty reign-
supreme"' throughout our county. We hope
the people will turn out ei mufsr, and con
tribute all they can to the exhibition, that
we may all together, in cheei ftdness and
good feeling, have a grand holliday.by which
we may be mutually benefitted, and the
character and rcputatiou of our county be
fully sustained.
We cannot express our views of tho im
portance of county fairs in any better way
than to qnoto the veil timed remarks in the
Toledo lili,h; of the 21st inst.:
There U not a farmer, mechanic or business man,
but is directly interested in these anmi.il eahiN
tions or the county. They are calculated to devel
epe the resources of tlio community in w liieh they
are held, and no bi tter evidence is iieccjuarv to con
vince the most incredulous, than the condition of the
counties either in our ou or other Mates, where
these exhibitions have been continued from vear
to year, without beinp allowed to tlajf for want of
interest, on the part of tho inhabitants. Such
comities are the most populous, the most wealthv.
and property always commands a higher price: mid
what good farmer or merchant Would not prefer
that his county should stand high in the estimation
of strangers, in eviry respect! when that opinion
can he obtained at so small a cost ?
This is comparatively a new countrv, an 1 our
county has had bid little to reeomm 'ml it to pu tics
abroad, compared with the many influences brought
to bear upon its reputation, that have been an inju
ry both to the county and the people. Hut the
time lias arrived when these 'outside pivsnires''
avsil nothing our county is becoming quite tliirklv
settled, yet "still there is room." mid it is believed
that, working upon the experience of the past in
other sections, an annual displav of our resources
will accomplish for ns what it ha's done for others:
viz : u tending to increase our population, by the
enterprise of our citizens thus exhibited, and show
ing that the products of the eountv are equal to
those of any other ; thus presenting Increased in
citement to fanners in the ICastern States to settle
among us.
And theiv is another important reason presented,
and that is : it cannot be otherwise than (hat nil
contributing to and intending these Fairs, being
brought together for the purpose of show ing what
each has tlon during the season, will be able to
understand and know each other better, nnd as a
general tiling be led to appreciate more fullv the
good quitlilirs developed on such occasions ; both
as men, families and neighbors, nnd where this
state of feelings exists, a feeling of confidence and
unity of purpose will be exhibited that, will havo a
wonderful elleet in developing the resources of the
Need we say more to Induce our friends in the
county to contribute to this fair ? It is unnecessary.
Let the farmer bring his grain, funis, etc.. the me
chanic his wares, an 1 the merchant his goods, mid
nil engage in it with the same energv that has char
acterized their ellbrts in individual cllorts during
the season, and this exhibition w ill be a success, the
like of which we have never seen in Wood county.

: Having read your article referring
to the tailor, permit him to thank yon for the gener
ous and condescending manner in which you advert
ed to his trade, his motives and capabilities. You
ore incorrect in your slatem.Mit of his motive to
writing the article published in tl io Jimnxnt of the
5th. His remarks in it were wholly premised on
your statements and assumptions in your paper of
the preceding week ; you will therefore please
not implicate the Journal thcruin. Whether your
tuiinevi tmnwrtion with Jfr. Uailry are such
as you, in his situation, would deem lmiior.ihh,
is for yourself to determine. Your oracular
advice and warning have deeply impressed
his miu 1. As a tailor he humbles himself for
his presumption in attacking an editor: and though
you hae wounded him w ith his shears and over
thrown him with his goose, yet he feels there has
been mercy in the punishment. The same hand
which (lung the gotwe could have thrown that
"terrible bomb i" which would havo annihilated
him who has attempted to destiny others, and now ,
like the Australian ISoomerang, is in n fair way of
using up its own motive power. O, that terrible
bomb! In your delineation of Ms character, voti
display wonderful discrimination. He w ould, ns a
consequence, esteem your appointment as assistant
to Professor l'owler, to be a national blessing. Your
exquisite sense of moral propriety: your utter dis
like of all tricksters and dishonest politicians, in
connection with the tangible demonstration of
phrenology, would at all times make your opinion
the criterion by which men for' ol'ace could be se
lected. From tho patronizing air you breathe, tho tailor is
fearful your recent elevation in the State Senate
has bewildered your imagination. It is possible
you consider yourself heir apparent to tho kingdom
of Cork; if so, allow him to say to you, your pat
ronage in the past has not been tho most profitable,
and he does uot expect to grow fat over it in the
The balance of your article is so full of the mod
esty which conscious greatness imparts that it is
necessary to quote it entire for the benefit of future
Solon's who may dictate laws to the ignorant. You
say: "He makes a coat very well, because that is
a task perhaps not beyond his ability, but when he
attempts to meddle with politics ho at onco gets
into water beyond his depth, and we sincerely ad
vise him to stick to his shears ami goose, and to
avoid hereafter interfering in that which does not
concern him." Now the tailor is bold to say that
there is not a man in Wood county, who in such
few words can ventilate so large au amount of self
couccit, contemptible dictatiou ami silly imperti
nence, ns his friend Higgins has done in this para
graph. Has the time really arrived when Mr.
Senator Hammond's doctrine of the mudsill has to
enforced ? Are we to be told that as mechanics, as
farmers, nnd as laboring men, wo lire incapable of
understanding the system of government under
which wo live ? Are we to be told that wc have no
l ight to meddle in the administration of this gov
ernment ? The system of trovcrnment mav nod
ought to be undeistood by every citizen. Kven r.
tnilur has right in it equal to un editor, a lawyer, or
the immii'itr jumunuuic ix!iiOitiii. I
Tho editor does not disparage the tailor by his
silly reference to the implements of trade. The j
slur falls on the meanness of his motive. I
Permit him to ask the editor whoso system of po
litical economy he has studied ? Is it lienthain's, !
Mnlthtis, Make Brim, Mill's or Waylnnd's? Whos i
n..n.:n..i j i. i ii .... . .. .
jMi.iti,.,w n--a..iiui. noes lie lotiow is ii mat ol Jei-
ferscn, John Quincy Adams, Clay or Webster?
Tho tailor apprehends ho knows but little of the
one, nud certainly does not imitato tho others. No
sir, the profound depths to which you refer has no
existence in our system of government, or abstract
edly in tho details of it-s a lmiuiuistr.ition. The
profundity and tho depth exists ia the modus ope
rnn li by which olliee nnd its emoluments may be ac
quired. Ia this sense the tailor acquiesces iu your
opinion of bis incompetency, and does not again
desire to test the depth of your political puddle.
From your readiness to give advice ho is assured
although it bo for a tailor, you will choerfully ac
cept tho sam When you apply the microsc ipe of
your keenly perceptive organs to the character of
your noighbois for analyzation and exposure, see
to it that there aro nu spots on its surface. Exam
ine carefully your motives, and be guarded by facts
not by desire. Don't allow yourself to think that
widom was born w ith you, and that political honesty
and an culiphtcned tivizatiou would perish should
you die. The utlairs of this great country progress
ed previous to yuur acquaintance with it, and the
belief exists that should you withdraw from it, its
progress would not bo retarded.
With the assurance that his shears shall at all
times be ready to clip your logie, and the goose on
hand to press articles of your manufacture, the
writer begs leave to subscribe himself as

simply s.ty that she is a lady, who, for upward of
inutv -years, lias untiringly tlevotetl tier time itml
talents, ns n female physician mill nurse, principally
among children. Mie has especially studied the
constitution nml wants of this mimc'roiia clans, so
generally overlooked, or rnrolessly treated by the
faculty in too ni tnv iustitm'cs; nnd as a result of
this effort, and practical knowledge, obtained iu a
lifetiiiu- .spoilt as a nurse and physician, she bus
compounded a Soothing Syrup for children teething.
It operate lik magic- giving rest ami health, and
is, moreover, sure to regulate the bowels. In con
sequence of this nrtit le, .Mrs. Wiuslow is becoming
worl, i reiiovvncil as a oetictnctor ot Iter race ; chil
dren rertainlv do rise up and bless her: especially
is this the case in this place. Vast ttinntilics of the
Soothing Syrup are haii.v sold and used here. It
has got to lie a common remark, "I had rather de
pend on Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup for mv
children, than to have the united nil vice of the med

has inmint tali.ed her name bv this invaluable arti

have boen stvti l from an early grave by its timely
use, und that millions yet unborn will share ils beii
