Excur sion! will be allowed to take their cbolce of trains. Railroad. The gap Is closed. The long looked for day has dawn. The world lias opened, at last to Oallipolis. The iron is down, nnd Oallipolis has a railroad connection with Columbus. Capt. Jno. A. Hamilton went out on the road last week, and reported only one bridge to partly build and about a mile of track to lay. This has all been completed, to-day finishing the work. There are only live or six miles to ballast, and the gravel trains and surfacing forces are putting this through. In the city the work of changing the grade to the river Is going ahead. The river lots on Front street will be graded, bouldered and an incline put thereon. The freight depots will be on Front between Cedar and Spruce, above Dr. Van Vleck's residence. The Co. will proba bly buy on the river side or Front street 'above Spruce for depot and storagejnirposes also. The Company have placed in position a bridge 90 feet In length, to span the crossing at the Mill Creek road. The bridge will rise above the track 17 feet in the clear, allowing the locomotive to pass under. The crossing at the Al ktnson-Salgue lane will be left in Its present shape. The trestle over Mill Creek will be about 300 feet In length. The dirt cut out of the new route passing- across Fourth street Is being hauled east of the trestle to form a v, which term means a curve to connect with the track near the graveyard, thus avoiding the use of a turn-table. The iron tor the Pomeroy Division will come from the other end over the completed road.

On Wednesday, George Rltz, a lessee of two coal mines Just above Cheshire, was, arrested upon the affidavit of his daughter Mary, aged 17, charging him with the horrible crime of Incest. Mary stated that her father had forcible Intercourse with her at the age of nine, and that he has continued his lustful conduct since. That he Is addicted to drink and the abuse of his family. At the conclusion of the trial Squire Matthews bound blm over to court In the sum of $300, which ball Ritz gave, and proceeded to settle some busi ness with his bondsman. That night a large number of citizens collected to do him violence, when the Constable was sent for and Rltz was run off In the night time to the Jail. We saw the prisoner and he permitted an interview. He admits his drunken habits and rough language when In that condition, but denies the above charge. He can give no" motive for his daughter's prose cution, and candidly acknowledges her good reputation for truth and chastity. Mary Is said to be enciente. The wife of Ritz Is the mother of 9 living children. The neighbors of Rltz give him a fair character and the appearance of the man U not bad. Miss Maria L. Sandford, late Profes sor of History at Swatmore College, (Penn.) will bo in attendance at our Institute. Tills is a rare chance for the teachers of Gallia. As an Institute in structor she is unsurpassed. Item from a Pennsylvania paper: "We rate her (MissS.) the foremost teacher of her sex in the State. Her mission is that of instructor. She should always be a teacher of teachers, and will And her true place only when at the head of one of our State Normal Schools. Teachers trained within the sphere of her influence will know more than what s contained n tfye new text books. Her life will be an inspiration to theirs." t The friends of Andrew Carman, who was killed near the railroad, accuse us of political deception in our statement regarding Carman's drinking.
