The trouble grew out of the issue and redemptiou of bonds for the several pikes m that county. There is a discrepancy or Slz.uuUi which the committee cannot explain. The only solution, probably, is that bonds for that amount were paid and not canceled, then issued again and paid the second time.

SIn the case of Ohio against Ma rion Gray, on a charge of assault and battery, upon Arthur Gray, tried be fore Justice Beard, of this, Center, township, the 21st inst , tbe defendant, by his attorney, W. F. Hunter, Sr , en tered a motion to dismiss; for the rea son that he had been tried once for the same offense. Motion overruled ; where upon the defendant waived an examin ation, and was recognized in the sum of 8100 to appear at the next term 'of the Common Picas Court. lWe would suggest to our farm ers that they form themselves into mu tual protection clubs, and meet once a month at their various houses. In this manner they could more readily protect themselves against all classes of swin dlers who are continually operating in the country. A general interchange of experience and opinions in such mat ters would result in their mutual bene fit. If every, farmer would take his home paper he could annually save himself ten times the cost of the same. The District Conference, The Conference of Ministers of the M. E. Church, which convened in Barn esville the second week of the present month, failed to make a favorable im pression, judging from the following, clipped from the Barnesville Enterprise of the 19th inet. : "We hope the ministers will brighten up and when they hold another Confer ence be able to do justice to themselves and the public they undertake to en lighten." ...

The Presbyterian congregation of this place gave a Strawberry Festival in the Court House, last week It was got up on short notice.and with little publicity, but was a success financially and a de cided success socially. One of the chief attractions was the floral department, which exhibited every variety of collection from the delicate button-hole cluster to the most magnifi cent boqtiets." "- To persons of less aesthetical tastes the banquet stand afforded the amplest satisfaction. ' Among the novelties, in addition to the usual post office and necktie bran ches, was a ,well, constructed on -the "Old Oaken Bucket" principle, which yielded excellent lemonade ; fend a fish pond, in Which a line was dropped from a rod, into a curtained apartmont wheue the prizes were attached by littte girls," and the lucky angler made his haul. A set of silver forks were Voted to Mrs. James R. Morris as the most pop ular married lady present ; a bottle " of cologne to our accomplished Post Mis tress, as the most popular single lady ; and a set of shirt-studs to Rev. Gibson as the most popular gentleman. The Woodsfield Brass Baud gave their services without compensation, and en livened the evening with most excellent music. uut the most attractive teatnre was the genial sociability of those in atten dance. In this respect it has not .been excelled here at any time. This alone amply compensated those present for all their outlay. Every one seemed to feel that such occasions should occur much more fre quently than they do in our village, (and elsewhere, for that matter,) if lor no other purpose, for the very desirable one of cultivating, agreeable social re lations. - Let us have more of them, is the 'ex pression of a general wish. 837Stop that rooi b:ick !

Spirit: On last Saturday evening James Davidson, of Salem, Washington County, was accidentally shot by a per son unknown to tbe undersigned. It appears from what we can learn, that the parly were enaed iu an old fash ioned "belling" or serenading party, wbea one of the number having a re volver in his possession, necidentally fired it, the ball passing through Mr. Javidson s lungs, when last beard from Mr. Davidson was alive, though in a very critical condition. X. Juue IS, 1873. (Fur the Spirit.) Good 1iuilajs Festival at Drowusville. Ed. Spirit: Tbe Good Templars of Brownsville held a festival at that place on Saturday, the 7lb inst. Addresses were delivered by Rev. Piggot of New Matnmoras, Rev. Cooper of Graysville, and E. Martin of Antioch. ' At the close of the speaking, seven persons (among whom are some of the most influential men in that vicinity) gave their names for membership in the lodge. In the evening tbe young folks of Brownsville gave an intertainment consisting of speeches, essays, dialo gues, tc. Temperance principles are gaining ground in that part of our county. M f The Oldest Settler. Ed1. SpirIt : A few days since I met with. perhaps, the oldest settler now living in Monroe County. Ili3 age is 87, name Abraham Forsbev. Sixty-five years ago he tramped through from the "Old Do minion," with his gun for a companion, aud took up his abode on the waters of Duck Creek. He said there was nothing but a trail at that time, leading in an east erly direction from Duck Creek toward Woodsfield, The forests then were thick with wolves and bears, and now and then a swarthy Aborigine would pay his cabin a visit, but seemed to be peaceably inclin ed. I could not help marking the differ ence between him and men of the present period. When I compared his large,com pact, muscular frame with the spare-built dyspeptic of now-a-days,I could not help wishing for the halcyon days of our grand fathers to return,when a well baked pone and a venison ham were sufficient ageuts to counteract gastronomical com plaints. . But then, that is past. Mr. Forshey still retains his eyesight unimpaired, and tells me that he has yet the first time to fail in voting the Demo cratic ticket, . As a class, our first settlers are fast pas sing away, and a few more years, at least, the sods of the valley will be growing green above them. They are a class that deserve a well paid tribute to their mem ory ; for on every hand we behold the ef fects of their patient toil in clearing our forests, and fitting them for the broad fields of grain that are covering them. JWll,167tf; X Letter from Dethel Township. , Lebanon, Ohio, June 14, 1873. Ed. Spirit : In your last issue I noticed a communication from Graysville.signed "Rustic," boasting of the butter and egg trade of that little village. We odrait they send a larger amount of that com modity to market than we do ; but yet, in a business point of view Lebanon beats their village ten to one. We do not envy them their monopoly ' of .that particular trade, neither do we wish to deprive them of it They can revel in their favorite dish of ham and eggs ; we do no t wish to epicurize, especially during the summer, on that one particularly unpalatable prep aration of their culinary department. Tobacco is our trade, and the five firms doing business in this, township will send to the various commission merchants of Baltimoro 2,000 hogsheads of tobacco.or Over 1,600,000 pounds.-; Our village is improving very rapidly, both in business and in buildings. Afew good mechanics,8uch as a shoemaker and saddler, could do a thriving business here. We have a good tanner who is do ing a lucrative business. Two. wagon makers arc busily engaged making ex press and.road wagens, and find ready sale for all they can put up. We have a number one blacksmith, and plenty of work for him to do. So you see we are not idle. The order of the day is busi ness, and every man among us means it. Letter, from Tranhlln Township. Stafford. Oaio, June 10, 1873. Ed, Spirit: The letter from Grays. ville, which appeared in your paper last week, attracted our attention very much, and, indeed filled us with wonder and as tonishment at the writer's wonderful de scriptive powers."1 We were greatly dis appointed, however, because be gave himself the indefinite name of "Rustic." 'Rjde" is the only definition given by Webster for the word "Rustic,"' which fully applies to the gentleman who wrote the letter. Oh, how earnestly we desire to become acquainted with him person ally, in order that we may crown him with laurels f : How extensive' must his knowledge of history be,to give us such a full aud clear history of Graysville and Van Burcn ! What exalted theories Jie possesses ! How delightful it would be to accompany hira on somef his gco' logical expeditions around the base of those "knoll-like hills," as he calls them, and see those "numerous large flat stones full of shallow holes as if worn by the cracking of nuts !". Mr. Rustic says that he has found "sand stoues of this descrip'ion, of about 100 pounds weight, with as many as 25 holes on one side," and seems to think, from the 'great number of black walnut trees that once grew about those knobs," as he says they ate called, that the Indians used those stones in cracking walnuts. Why, indeed! Mr. Editor, we never thought of that before. We have all seen stones such as Mr. Rustic describes, but never imagined,until Mr. Rustic told us, that the holes in them were made by the Indians in cracking walnuts. True it is, that "Idea3 go booming through the world louder than cannon," and that "Principles have achieved greater victo ries than armies." We hope that Mr. Rustic will not let his fertile brains sleep, but that he shall continue to spread his theories abroad. Mr. Rustic endeavor ed to give us a full and complete history of Daniel Gray. He. says, "This ambi tious individual rejoiced in the three no b e occupations of Farmr,Merchant ai.d ; Lawyer, and was a signal failure in each! and every one ileur tbe truth : Daniel Gray, at one time, was a weal thy man, and was doing a paying and ; respectable business. lie entered s'nie oi me nest lots in uranium nnu wasn-t ington townships, and was making mon ey as fast as any man in Monroe Coun ty, until the terrible crash in money mat ters came, when he failed, perhaps hav ing "too many irons in the fire at once," and not be alone', but thousands of oth er good business men I presume that Mr. Rustic, bad he lived during the 'Pan ic of '37,,? would have failed," and that, too, miserably. Mr. Rustic says, "Liti gation was his peculiar weakness." Mr. Rustic will please remember to first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then sbalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. We hope that no kind friend will taint the memory of Mr. Rustic by placing, as a fitting monument to his 'memory, the. dog-fennel and rag-weed. Good by, Mr. Rus tic. X " To Kansas anil Colorado!
