He raves and rants worse than a fish woman, because we exposed to the Democracy of this county his "Republican dodge," covered with an "Independent plaster." , Per haps the return he received for the pub lication of that letter abusing James A. Watson, a Democrat, caused his unhap py state of mind. Then Amos, of the Caldwell Prest, rasped him and that may have caused him to rant, and to think he was not "Republican dodgo' enough to hurt, even though an "Independent plas ter" was used to hide tho deformity. It's a sad ca?c, and we emplore Brother Amos to cease his exposures, as 'tis questionable whether ibe fellow is re sponsible in any way for anything he says or does. He pays of his excessive charges for count" work : "In making out our bills for adverti sing they have been in a few instances a few cents higher than Wests', but he ex plained that himself when be told the Commissioners "that it was almost im possible to make bills exactly alike where there were two kinds of type j used ! ' This was when we claimed we were entitled to 81 50 per square for a certain job of work, and which the State4 printer decided was right. Our bill was 81 00 more than West's and when he made the above remark to the Commis sioners they allowed him the same amount." No such expression as that quoted was ever made by West, as a ten line advertisement in one paper makes Just ten linos in the other, notwithstanding the fact that different kinds of type art used. And 25 ems to the line is the standard, for each paper, as fixed by the Commissioners. The only bill where there was 81 difference was in March last when Goodrich charged 916 and we charged 815 for the teachers' notice and each was allowed, ts presented, without change. That 81,50 per square job was the an nual statement published iast Septem ber. It was plain setting, but Goodrich, anxious to save money for the tax pay ers! wanted tabular rates, 81,50 per square for first insertion and 75 cents per square for the second insertion, which made bis bill 865. Our bill was 844 for the same work, at 81,00 per square for 1st insertion and 50 cents for 2d insertion. His bill was cut down 821 and each was allowed 844, every cent the work was worth. Here are a few bills presented by the two paperB : Spirit. Democrat Ang. Statement. 1373.

Total reduction, 876,23. Oar bills were calculated at the rate allowed by law and allowed without a reduction of a single cent. Another little item right here: Good rich published the Delinquent Tax List last December, and the Auditor to ac commodate him calculated it before the return came on from Columbus, and is sued an order for 8173,32. The Audi tor of State afterwards sent on his cal culation which was 8169,77, but Good rich has yet in his pocket 83,65 which belongs to the tax payers of this coun ty. Let him return that money to the County Treasury, and explain, if he can, why he did not do so last February when the Auditor of State returned 8169 77 as the amount he was ' entitled to re ceive. True, the amount, 8173,32 was al lowed Treasurer Morris In his settlement at Columbus, to save trouble in making out the settlement sheets a second time, but that does not altes the fact that the difference, 83,55, belongs to the tax payers of this county; and should be re turned. We repeat, that with such an unenvi able record for honesty he ought to be very careful about charging any one with swindling or unfair dealing, unless he chooses to make himself the ' excep tion ; and that County officials, having the record before them, don't feel war ranted in giving him advertisements, un less some law expressly requires that they be printed in two papers. - ITEMS. .

OBITUARY. Died At Clarineton, Ohio,on the 29th day of July, 1877, Dr. James Smith, aged 39 years 8 months and 6 days. The subject of the above sketch was born in Belmont County, Ohio, Novem ber 24, 1837.- When yet a child his father, Thomas Smith, removed to Monroe County, purchased a farm, and reared a family consisting of four boys and one airl, near the pleasantly situated town of New Castle. James, therefore, commenc ed his experience in life on the farm. But on account, perhaps, of his having a fee ble Constitution and suffering considera ble from attendant tffliction in his early youth, having also a fine nervous temper ament, he, while yet n. boy, characterized himself by bis early departure from both in thought and action the occupa tion of his ancestor, who, together with his affectionate mother, fortunately did all thev coaZJdo to encourage him in the line of his new undertaking. His early! education was procured in his ownimrae-' diate neighborhood, from attending to his primary studies under the directions of j such teachers as were employed in the. rural distrids, in the days of log school houses. His youthful superiority as a student, notwithstanding his physical de bility, was soon acknowledged by all who came in social contact with him, to be the result of more than ordinary intellection, Hence, while Jet a stripling, he commenc ed to teach in the common schools of our county. In this occupation the public received from him the benefits which al ways result from the operation of a clear and practical mind. Not satisfied, how ever, to rest content where many other young men would stop, he left for a short time the teacher's desk in exchange for that of the studen, and entered the Barnesville Iustitute He remained at the school during a considerable portion of the time designated by the presence of Profs. Tompson and Davenport, the founders of that notable and valuable In stitution, surpassed, at that time, by none in Eastern Ohio. Many students who had the pleasure of his society, while al Barnesville, and who are scattered throughout the States of our Union now middle aged will, no doubt, yet be able to recall the slender form, the placid features, the cool deter mination, the self confidence and the clearly intellectual character of the man, so unassuming under trying circumstan ces, and yet so correct in his conclusions A short time after leaving Barnes ille, he entered the Normal School at Lebanon, where he finished one of the classics pre paralory to entering into the study of his favorite profession. Following his return from Lebanon he took charge of the Mathematical Department of the Woods- field Union School, in . connection with Prof. John Moore, late of Monroe Coun ty When, shortlv after the completion of bis labors at Woodsfleld, on the 221 day of February, 1860, he came to Gar mgton and commenced the study of med icine under the instruction of the late Dr O Conner. Oi his entering this new field of scientific and intellectual research, he immediately applied his peculiar pow ers of abstraction, comparison and com bination with such intelligence and suc cess that, la a short time his Preceptor became astonished at the rapidity of Lis progress. With a mind susceptible of sraspinz the finest minutiat, and the pow er of classification surpassed by none, he stored away, as it were, all tho proceeds of his intellectual research in separate re ceptacles, only to be drawn out when ap plicable to such cas-s as, in the contin gencies of his profession, bis judgment dictated their ue. The knowledge and practice of medicine and surgery seemed to him to be paramount to all other earth lv attainments Hence, while readiag the text-books of his profession, nothing of a bearing foreign to his tubiect was permitted to engross his mind. While yet a student his preceptor was elected by his fellow-citizens to the Senate of his na tive State ; and, relying upon the superior qualifications of the -young Doctor, he left him in charge of bis practice, which was, indeed, a very large and responsible trust. But the confidence was not mis placed; nor did an appreciative people suffer, in the least, from the change. This occurred twice during the Doctor's Sena- torehip, with the same results. When, in ihe Winter and Spring of 1861, Dr Smith attended the Lectures at the Col lege of Medicine and Surgery in Cincin nati, and received the chartered compli ments ,of that Institution on the 22d of June, 1864; after which he returned to Clarington and resumed his practice, in which be continued with unremitting success. ' The Doctor, shortly after he commenced his study with O'Connor, formed an: acquaintance with an accom plished young lady of Marshall County, West Va., a Miss Cresap, then' quite young. In the zeal and ambition with which the young. Doctor pursued his studies, this acquaintance began only in a friendly recognition, but in the course of a few years was renewed, and culminated in a matrimonial union on the 10th of De ceinber, 1872. - The Doctor's ambition in the line of his profession now being to a certain ex tent gratified, it .only required a small portion of his leisure time to keep pace with the progress of the profession, which he always did. " But the activity of his mtndf together with his regular and in dustrious babits.creat.ed in him a restless ness, to. appease which he occupied a considerable part of his leisure time in the reading and investigating of the Holy Scriptures, in which, during the last ten years of his .life, he became greatly inter esled and much deligliiea. lie was in deed a fine Biblical scholar. One of his chief pleasures was to impart instruction to his Bible class in Sunday School, and at this particular school he always put in an appearance, unless prohibited by sick ness in himself or others. Hence the little folks were always eipecling bim 11 is instruction to them was always kiveu with earnestness. He relied on the Bible, alone, as tho all-sufficient moral and spir ilual guide) . and touht the sme to his pupils. His social characteristics, which while a young man eee.ned to be douded over with the earnestness and zeal that he exerted to prepare for future usefulness, became developed at middle age to a de gree unsurpassed by few men. With a healthy vivacity in hid disposition, he had the apparently peculiar prerogative of dispensing to all with whom he associated -young and old, male of feriale -a part of his cheerfulness. IJis friends were bound to him as with a cord of lov e. His enemies, though few, were punished only by his kindness, and were compelled by times to relinquish (heir resentment and accept his kindness and services with the affectionate fondness of a frieud He was a friend to the poor, and his hand was al ways open in charity The church re ceived her sharo of the proceeds of his toil. "The preacher and the teacher," he would often say, "are seldom if ever paid enough." He stooped, as it were in his riper years to grapple with some of the political questions of the two great parties, and in common with a great majority of his fel low citizens had his own party predilec lions. Though often solicited by his warmest friends he never gave his con sent to engage in a political contest. Yet be well understood the operations of the folitic'ianjartd admired the tfireefatlttrnanlto be eHiccissfui and patriot while he detested the dema gogue and the motive that prompted his action, let him show himself in either party. With a life of usefulness before him and many years of preparation just past, on the 6th ull , he was confined to his room for the last time with typhoid. Un der its scorching influences he lingered on during several weeks, and was finally call ed lo that bourn from whence no traveler eturns, "where the wicked cease to rouble and the weary soul can be at rest ' His remains were followed, by a large procession from Clarington, to their last resting place in the church yard, by the side of his mother, two brothers and an only sister, at the U- P. Church, about 2J miles east of New Castle. "No man liveth unto himself and no man dieth unto himself," saith the Bock, and we who knew him so well and feel so deeply that a great good has gone out of our lives, can testify that our friend did not so live and die.
