W3L. II- 'NASH, Proprietor. Teems: 1 1 50 in advance, or $2 at tlie end of the year. GALLIPOLIS, FEB. 'IT, 1876. Come Home to Roost. The following appeared in trr BuT letinot January 26th: The storthat the Clerk of the -House Committee of Ways and Varans had a child named after John Wilkes Booth has met with the same fate that the majority of Republican stories meet It i3 a lie. The Clerk has a child, and his name is John Wilkes, ,but he was so named in honor or his father's brother, who was named after the great English Commonor, John Wilkes. That is., very emphatic, neverthe less there is truth in the story. First, we quote from the Washi ton Tribune, the only Democd paper published at the seat of . eminent. We coov from its iasm Feb. 11th: "As a friend and defender of Morrison, and a well-wisher of the Democratic party whenever it acts with decency, we join the New York Tribune in demanding the removal of this admirer of assassins from the Clerkship of the principal committee of the Democratic House. Such beastly barbarism as this Hamble ton has been guilty of should not be tolerated in a cleaner of spittoons in a bar-room. Occupying a representa tive position as he does, his retention would cost the Democratic party half a million of votes. Just such a thing as this would turn the National election. We assure the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee that this matter shall not be allowed to rest until he takes action in the case. We have proofs, and shall pre sent them, that this Clerk is guilty of the infamy charged." But here is the clincher. It is from Mr. Morrison himself: d WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 10, 1876. Dr. J. P. Hambleton, Clerk Ways . - and Mean Committee: Sir: The charge- so often made, aud as often denied by you that you had named a sou after the assassin of Mr. Lincoln, I have until now wholly disbelieved. Recent develop ments which show your son to have been named or recognized by the name of John W. B. Hambleton give at least a semblance of truth to the charge. With the slightest appear ance of the truth of such a charge, I have but one duty to perform, that is to accept your resignation, offered some time ago, which I do hereby. Respectfully yours, W. R. MORRISON. Chairman Committee on Ways and Means. So Mr. Hambleton steps down and out, and the "lie" comes - home to roost. Ex-Speaker Blaine gave his views on the financial question, in .Congress, on the 10th. The Cincin- nati Gazette furnishes the following; digest of the speech : "The speech, as a whole, is in har mony with the Ohio Republican plat form ot last year mat is, opposed to inflation and in favor of adopting measures that will, as soon as prac ticable, without an unnecessary shock to business, equalize the pur chasing power of the coin and paper dollar. It favors no radical meas ures of contraction or resumption. Indeed, upon this point it is as gen eral as a political platform in which the . avoidance of rugged issues is sought He accepts the resumption Act,' as it stands, as impracticable. It fixes a date, but gives no adequate process, and the paramount duty of Congress - is to provide a process. What that -process ought to be he does net in dicate, except that it ought to be in harmony with the great business in- ' terests of the country. Mr. Blaine is not a speedy resumptionistnor an arbitrary contractionist" . It having been decided that a spe cial tax on dogs is not unconstitu tional a bill has been prepared for that purpose, and the State Journal . gives the following digest of it: Sec. 1. That dogs are not proper ty in Ohio, but common nuisances, . and that every person owning premi , ses where a dog is kept or harbored shall pay into the county treasury an annual tax of five dollars. ' 2. That township aud ward asses sors shall make annual returns of the dogs within their respective jurisdic- . tions to the county auditor, by whom they shall be placed on the duplicate for taxation. 3. Makes it unlawful for dogs to . run at large, and imposes a fine of five dollars, each offense, upon the - owners of such animals who permit them to go off their premises. 4. Authorizes anyoody.and makes it the duty of constables and mar ; shals, to kill any dog found running at large, and authorizes payment of a bounty cf two dollars for each ani mal so killed. o. AiaKes owners or premises where dogs are harbored liable for damage done by such aniinaU in the - destruction of sheep. . 6.- Provides that the owner, of premises where a sheep -destroyin dog is harbored shall have a right of action against the person harboring ' such animal. 7, 8, and 9.

Mother Stewart in England— An Interesting Letter. SPRINGFIELD, Feb. 10, 1876. Editor Gallipolis Journal: I have just received a letter' from Mo ther Stewart, now in London, in the interest of the great Temper ance cause. Thinking some of her old friends of Gallipolis and vicinity would like to hear from her, I copy her letter and send you. Respectfully, S. A. LASLEY. 88 AUTIL ROADS, GROVE ROAD, EAST LONDON, Jan. 18, 1876. Mr Dear Brother: I at length find the time to write you. I sent you out a line from Liverpool, tell ing of my safe arrival there. I first arrived at Liverpool in the City of Brooklyn, January 9th, and was cor dially received. The Southport .Dai ly News of Jan. 12th, says: "We have already informed our readers that Mother Stewart, the leader of the 'Women s Temperance Crusade in America, was about to pay a visit to this country, and many of the American paper noticing her inten tions, have written in the warmest terms of hep work in that country, and heartily commended her to the care of temperance people here. We are glad to say she arrived safely in the City of Brooklyn on Saturday even ing, and was welcomed by prominent Good Templars, who were taken out bv the tender to meet her. Sue has been staving: at the house of the Chief of the Order in Lancashire, John B. Collings, Esq., of Liverpool, and on Monday evening had a pub lic reception given to her by the lead ing Temperance reformers of the city at Lawrence Hotel. After tea, the Chair was taken by John B. Collings, Esq., and the fol lowing resolution was seconded by N. Sraythe, Esq.: Resolved, That this social gather ing, representing the Good Templars of Lancashire, tender to Mother Stewart a cordial welcome on her ar rival in this country, and desire to express its hearty thanks to Al mighty God for the glorious work she has been the means of accoin plishing in America, in connection with the Women's Temperance cause. Mother Stewart then replied in thrilling speech, givingan acconntof the work in America full of inter esting incidents, showing that her whole heart is in it, and speaking at the same time in such a modest and lady-like manner, as to gain the sym pathyof everyone present At this point,. Mr. W. H. Newett moved, and it was seconded and supported and carried unanimously, that we desire to thank our American Temperance Brethren for the hearty greetings sent to us by Mother Stewart, and assuring her of our conviction that she will be cordially welcomed by the earnest temperance meu and women of every town she may visit in thi country, and hope she ma' be made the means of giving a fresh impetus to our great good work, and of fur ther strengthening the fraternal bonds already existing between the temperance ' people of both nations. A hearty vote of thanks to the Chairman was carried, and the meet ing closed with the Doxologv. Mother Stewart leaves this mom ing for London, aud we are glad to know our readers will soon have an opportunity of hearing her in South port Mother Stewart is an earnest mem ber of the Methodist society, the wife of a good citizen of Springfield. Ohio, and first received the title of 'Mother' Stewart, from the wound ed soldiers in the hospitals during the American War." She adds, "I am so tired I fear you cannot make out what I have written,'! and adds, "If you please; you may send a copy of this to the (iullipolis Journal.

We have not yet heard the croaking of toads or the jug-o'-rum of the bull frog, but spect they are tuning up but the cooing dove and the blue bird are in our midst to admonish us it is spring weather, if it is winter. But news is what you want from a niniteu examination, we find peaches most all winter-killed the blades of wheat were badly fro zen during the January cold snap, hut the roots are all right yet Field operations by farmers have been not only retarded, but almost entirely prevented by the enormous amount of rain, yet there is much farmers can do, such as tinkering up their farm implements, gears, fenc ing, dec, that will forward them when the busy time does come; but this ain't "news." Mr. Levi C Jones is very lo' with typhoid fever, having been con- nnea to uis bed for seven weeks.

Mr. R. was a kind, good and peacea ble citizen. He was over three score years and ten, and if I am rightly in formed, was born in Addison town ship. Thus another of the early pio neers has beea gathered to the bet ter land. The winter school term closed in Faneuil Hall, Feb. 5th. The crop of maple sugar will be lighi, judging from our expe rience thus far; we got enough to sweeten that old "holler tooth" by hard work, losing several good naps, singing our whiskers and smoking our eyes till they stuck out ahead of our nose.

They, no doubt, will conclude that Job didn t have much harder time than some of his descendants have. On last Friday evening a social par ty was given at the residence of M Geo. W. Bing. After a few hours' ex ercise, supper was announced and bountiful table was soon surrounded by happy guests, who all partook heartily of the repast, and no doubt thought it was good for them to there. After supper we again en ioved a few hours' exercise, after which we departed for our respectiv homes. There is considerable sickness in the community now, and we notice that the business is divided between Dr. Barton, of Addison, Dr. John son of Kyger, and Dr. Watkins, of Middleport A ground-hog was killed in the township last week.
