En gineer Thurston and other members of the Fire Departmerit are conspicuous in tie picture. , t The Fayette county Democracy held their nominating convention at City Hall list Saturday afternoon, and placed in nomination the following county ticket: For Probate Judge, J. B. Eoontz; for Sheriff, Oswell Smith (present incum bent) ; for Commissioner, Joshua Mahan ; Tor Clerk C. J. Bell ; for Recorder, A. B. Arbogast; for Infirmary Director, Jas. Smith ; for Coroner, Dr. O. W. Marshall. At Bainbridge, Monday noon, while the north bound train on the S., J. & P. R. R. was standing on the track, and the engineer and fireman had gone to dinner, leaving the train in charge of a brake- man, who was washing himself, Albert G. Pepple, a drunken farmer, slipped around the rear of the locomotive, un coupled it from the rest of the train, jump ing on the engine, opened the throttle and started off on a wild chase op the road. The people living along the line state that he must have had on a full head of steam as he was going at the rate of sixty miles an hour. He got along first rate until he reached a curve, which was too much for him, and the consequence was that the engine was ditched aud Pepple had his skull fractured, his face mashed and his body terribly scalded by the steam. , The engine, which was "Washington," No. 5, was the finest on the road and is almost a total loss. The wild freak delayed the trains many hours, but everything was in running order Tuesday morning. JLocal Political Notes. Charley Bell doesn't think he has a bon anza in the nomination for clerk against Mr. Welsheimer, and don't propose to squander any wealth in the canvass. : The Democratic county ticket nomina ted last Saturday, is pronounced by both Republicans and Democrats, generally, as the weakest they have presented for a number of years. A prominent Democrat, in discussing the nominations last Saturday, offered to wager that Judge Priddy would be re elected Probate Judge over his Demo cratic opponent, J. B. Kooutz, by a ma jority of J 800 Votes. He was a little too sanguine, however. We would advise him to come down to about 600, and have a sure thing. Should Hon. Mills Gardner receive the Republican nomination for Congress in this district by the Convention, to be held at Columbus to-day, he will carry his own county by a much larger majority than any candidate ever received in the coun ty. ; It is conceded by leading Democrats that he would receive a large portion of the Democratic vote against Converse. On Saturday next we nominate our county ticket; but, as yet, we have heard of no one who is anxious to make the race either for Clerk of the Court or for Re corder.' Cannot there be two lambs found for the sacrifice ? Hegister, Aug, 8th. The convention succeded in finding the "lambs," and the Republican voters of the county will assume the responsibility of seeing that the "sacrifice" comes off, and that not only these two iambs shall be offered up, but the balance of the flock will be included in the sacrifice. The contest for nominations in the Dem ocratic county convention, last Saturday, was not very spirited ; in fact, some of the position on their ticket were bard to give away v: There is a woeful lack of confi dence on the part of the Democracy in their ability to elect any man on their ticket,' and the honor of a candidacy on that ticket is considered empty. The Republicans present; an excep tionally strong ticket for the coming canvass ; one which gives entire satisfac tion to the party, and will command the solid support of the Republican voters of the county at the October election -f aud, as the only hope of success for the De mocracy of this county is in Republican disaffection on some portion of the ticket, the possibility of running in a man from the Democratic side is considered hope less. - Sugar Creek Cause-neat ins; Notes. It was estimated that there was over three thousand persons present at the patronage from them. Tho company is a 1 Sugar Creek Camp-meeting, on last Sun good one, and worthyof better treatment.

The Greenfield Chief, Aug. 10th, says; "Phon Hudson, who left Washtngton C, II., O., a month or so ago, for a trip across the Continent, returned to his home in this place, the forepart of the present week. He thinks now that the Stale of Ohio is good enough for him." Mr. A. Voigt, editor of the Mt.- Ster ling News, called on us Tuesday, on his way home from Bainbridge. We are in debted to him for the particulars of the railroad accident at that place. Mr. Voigt intends removing his paper from MtSter ling to Bainbridge. He says the newspa per business don't pay at Mt. Sterling. Barnum's Great Snow. 1 This magnificent and attractive estab lishment will exhibit in Washington C. H. on Friday, August 23d. It took a Barnum to conceive so stupen dous a scheme to amuse and instruct the people as we have just witnessed. One characteristic of all Barnum's efforts in" this direction, is, that he always aims for the best of everything, and no one can question that he has succeeded. His im mense aggregation is transported by four trains of cars made expressly for this purpose. The wonder is, how it is possi ble to make such a huge concern pay its running expenses, as the charge for ad mission is the ordinary price for amuse ments with not one-third the attractions he presents. His museum of rare curi osities is alone worth going miles . to see, while his menagerie is composed of some of the very best specimens of the animal world. The sea-lion is a powerfully-built fellow, with a small head, huge jaws, and a treacherous, uneasy-looking eye. He amuses himself and the spectators by con stantly splashing into a tank of water from a bench above the tank, takinggood eare every time to keep his head from con tact with his iron cage. The lioness and her three young whelps were another in teresting feature in this part of the exhi bition. She exhibits the same tender care for her twelve-weeks old progeny that we find under like circumstances in our do mestic animals. They would have made interesting little pets in a family house- bolcl, Due can be made more useful to Barnum. There is no humbug about the giant. He stands 8 feet 6 inches in his stockings, and his name is Col. Goshen. He would make a good figure-head for a regiment of giants; He is a man of magnificent phys ique, with no superfluous flesh, easy, gen tlemanly manners, with a pleasant ex pression, and belongs to a family of giants. His father and mother are of the giant race, and Col. Goshen is one of fifteen children. Barnum ought to scoop in the whole family. The equestrian portion of the entertain ment is perfect in every particular. The riders possess rare skill in their profes sion. Mr. Fish, in his bareback riding, shows wonderful nerve and agility. He is said to be the best bareback rider in the arena. The most pleasing and Instructive portion ot tne entertainment is tnat given by Mr. Carl Antony, with his trained stallions, twenty in number, which show themselves perfectly obedient to his will. They are undoubtedly the most superb horses oh the continent, being of high blood, docile, perfection in form, and show the most good traits of any horses that ever came before the public. It is a wonderful exhibition of what the horse can be taught by kindness and a little at tention to humoring their tastes. Mr. Barnum says that the whole theory of the Professor's treatment is, that they should be well rewarded for well doing. Accord ingly their master has always by him a pocketful of sugar and apples, with which their Obedience is always re warded. He thinks the whip has never been used on the animals. To appreciate the wonderful intelligence of these beau tiful horses, one must see them and wit ness their almost human displays of intel ligence. There is nothing slip-shod or neglected in the appearance of any :of these horses, and the sight of them is a lesson that will last one a lifetime. The whole exhibition is one well worth the patronage of all. This is the opinion of the Lewis ton (Me.) Gazette, and judging from our ex changes the opinion is generally indorsed. Be sure and see the grand Procession in the streets, which is greater than ever this yeari Tickets and reserved seats may be had at Harlow's Drug Store. Republican County Convention.

Mr. Meredith la both the Herald and Register, seems to show a disposition to abuse, and as it is so easy to accuse another of evils, I will only answer his queries. 1st. ; Mr. Holliday was in search of the Bible, but, in the sense that Mr. M. uses the term, they "did not have it," so he saw what was there.- 2nd. He was not in the company of those who were serving God, because they were not to be found, and after a fruitless search he returned home. 3d. Bro. Holliday is too well known for the last accusation to hurt. - His name has been in the Herald too often, which the gentleman would have known if he read the papers. ' - The fact is Brother H. told the truth, which many of out people will testify to, and that made it hurt our friend Mere dith. His remarks were written to warn the people that they be not deceived by these "bogus" camp meetings which' have for their sole aim money making. The man himself dared not deny the truth of those statements as his reply clearly shows, Yours Respectfully, J. W. Seabrook.

The youngest daughter of Joseph Dixon, -living near Staunton, fell, from the toMyf a. high' gate, some six feet, striking a pile of rocks, dislocating and fracturing her elbow. Drs. Coffman and son were called. Before the limb was re duced chloroform- was administered, and the Bavarian splints applied. The little patient is getting along finely, but the Doctor thinks she.will have a stiff arm. . P. S. Collins the old reliable livery man, has removed his livery and feed stable to the M. A. Melvin stable, on the corner of Fayette and East streets, where he will have much more room co carry on business than In his former quarters. He has refitted and improved the. stable and put everything in the best order as he always will have things about him and is prepared, to accommodate his friends in the livery and feed business, to their en tire satisfaction. Little Charlie Hilderbrand, whose father lives on Milton Hegler's farm, was playing in the road, on Friday evening last; a neighbor's, mare, feeding close by, saw the boy and deliberately walked to where he was, wheeled round and kicked him square in the face, cutting and bruis ing him fearfully, and knocking him senseless. Dr. Coffman was sent for who dressed the boy's wounds. The little fel low vomited quite a nuantitv nf blond: but, at this writing, be is in a fair way to get well. . mi . - Rev. C. S. Evans, of Grace Chapel, Cincinnati, preached the dedicatory ser mon last Sunday morning. We understand that there has been a great deal of misunderstanding about the gate fees. False reports to the effect that $1 and $1.50 were charged for single ad mittance, have been widely circulated by some unprincipled persons. The admis sion is: Family tickets, $1, good during the meeting, admitting all under 18 years of age. Single tickets, good during the meeting, 50c. Single admittance 10c; all under 12 years free. - Next Friday morning will be devoted to the interest of the Sunday-school, and the afternoon to the temperance cause. Rev. S. H. Flood, of Indiana, the West ern Temperance orator, and an excellent lady speaker, engaged by the Christian Temperance Union, will be among the prominent speakers present. A large number of the members of the Ohio Conference are already in attend ance. Rev. Jas. J. White, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and several others from a distance, are in attendance. Dr. A. Clark, Revs. J.

Brown, and the DuQuesne Blues, of Springfield, com manded by Capt. Harper, have selected this place as a site for a week's encamp ment, commencing on the 27th, and have secured the Old Fair -Grounds for ' their camp. Capt. Brown and Lieut. Pay ue. of the Poe Guards, were here yesterday, representing both companies, to make arrangements for their encampment. On Friday, of the encampment week, the companies will be inspected by Gov ernor Bishop, Adjutant Gen. Miley, Col. noaglaud and Capt. Steiben. The Old Fair Grounds will make an excellent camping ground, and our citizens will be pleased to show the visiting malitia ail courtesies. Their presence with us for a week will be quite welcome. The Poe Guards and DuQuesne Blues are both first-class, and' the only colored militia companies in the State. Teachers' Inititnte. The . Fayette County Teachers' Insti tute of 1878 was a grand success ; 136 per sons in attendance. While it has been one of the most profitable ever held in the county, its cost has been trifling, com pared with previous Institutes, the entire expense amounting to only $154 59. The instruction was of the most practical character. Prof. Allen's arithmetic and grammar classes were very interesting and profitable. Prof. Ogden's instruc tions in "Methods of Teaching" and "Language" elicited unusual interest. Prof. O'Brine's lectures on "Physical Geography" were listened to with "close attention. Three evening sessions were held during the week. Tuesday evening Prof. Ogden delivered a lecture on "The Child Life" or "Kindergarten Culture." Hon. J. J. Burns, State School Com missioner, was expected to lecture on Wednesday evening, but failed to reach here on account of the railroad accident.' The evening was spent in discussion : sub ject "What shall we do for our ungrad ed Schools." Opened by Prof. Patterson, followed by Hon. H. V. Kerr, Prof. Og den and others. Prof. Wetherby of the Cincinnati Uni versity, lectured on Thursday evening; subject "Zoological Anomalies." The lecture was of the most interesting char acter, and secured for the Professor many admiring friends. . The election of officers took place on Friday afternoon, which resulted as fol lows : President, Ella Simkins ; VicePres ident, A. M. Jones; Secretary, R. C. Mil ler; Executive Committee, B. A. Argo gast and H. II. Sanderson. The Institute closed'with a grand Social at SqKool Hall, on Friday evening,- and attenueu uysuouione nunarea persons. R. C; Miller, Sec'y. got off the cars of the P. Ft. W. & C. Ry., at Dunkirk, and proceeded to hire ax and chain men for a surveying expedition. They, had come unannounced, and their cool proceedings, gave a color of "busi ness" ve-the whole transaction, not usual. Frpm.ltVem it waslearned.that responsi ble parties had conceived the project of building-a north and south road, which should connect the coal regions of the South with the pine regions of the North, and had undertaken to complete a survey for.a narrow gauge road from Washing tort -Cburt House,' in Fayette county.-to the ptnie regions, but whether through Toledo or an independent line, connect ing with the disbanded Coldwater line and so on to Lake Michigan on a line sim ilar to. the one suggested by us some time ago, Would depend upon subsequent de velopments, encouragement, etc. A sim ilar corps to that which had debarked at Dunkirk, had been sent forward to Bowl ing Green, with orders to survey toward Findlay, at which point the survey from Dunkirk would terminate. At the same time a corps of Engineers started from WashingtonCourt Houle, working North and touching: at every county through whieh the line extends.' On Monday last, the surveying corps was in the vicinity of Arlington, and will probably reach this city by Saturday. The line is undoubtedly a good one, as far as developed, and if designed especial ly for the building up of the country through which it passes, will meet with encouragement. If intended to concen trate business at the present large cen ters, which is the mainspring of most of such projects, it will hardly meet the en couragement which former projects have done. The project should, however, be carefully studied so that when the pro jectors of the route, (as they undoubtedly will do,) come among you to solicit aid, you maybe able to act intelligently in the matter and as liberally as the benefits ex pected to be derived will justify. nomination of Hon.

The Chillicothe District Conference of the M. E. Chuch held its eleventh session at Good Hope, O., July 30th and 31st, 1878. There was a good attendance both on the part of the members of the Confer ence and the people of the town and country. The Presiding Elder, Rev. J. H. Creighton, in his report, gave a full and encouraging statement of the work done on the district during the year. The reports of the pastors of the several charges were also full of encouraging facts, indicating that the Church, in many of its interests, is making decided advances, Among other favorable things it may be noted that several new churches are being built on this district this year. The licenses of the Loeal Preachers and Exhorters were renewed, and one new license to preach was granted. Three persons were recommended for Deacon's orders and one for Elder's orders. There was also three recommendations to the Annual Conference for admission into the traveling connection. The. Conference passed very decided resolutions againstthe spurious camp meetings that are being held in our midst in these days, in which the Sabbath is desecrated for money-making purposes. These resolutions urge all true friends of the (Jhurch to discountenance, In every way possible, these camp-meetings, so called, and to draw a very careful dis tinction between them and the true camp meetings, under the control of the Church for definite religious work. A Woman's Missionary Meeting was held during the Conference, under the management of Mrs. S. E. Creighton and Miss Carrie Scott, both ot Chillicothe. Sermons were preached during the session by Rev. L. C. Brooks, Rev. T. G. Wakefield and Rev J. P. Pillsbury. A vote of thanks was very heartily given to the people of Good Hope town and circuit, for their hospitality, and kindness shown the members of the Con ference.

Herald: The practice now so prevalent, that of charging an admittance fee to camp meetings, is, in our opinoin, entirely wrong, and should be abandoned at once. We give as our reason : God never intend ed that we should pay for hearing His word preached, and that it debars myri ads of the poorer class of people from the religious privileges to which they are cer tainly entitled. We boast of our religious and educa tional privileges, but are com pel led to pay an admittance fee - before entering the camp-grounds. The Church authorities could, with the same propriety i station :t man at the door of every church and com pel the church-going people to pay beforo entering. The practice is intolerable and should no lonercr be allowed to exist as a barrier against our churches in this en lightened and civilized age. Can we not hope for a speedy return of the good old ways of our ancestors, so we can worship according to tho dictates of our con sciences, without being compelled to pay ten cents. Instead of charging an admit tance fee they should open the gates of their camp grounds anil Invite the way faring sinners to come; by so doing the glorious cause of Christ would be ad vanced.
