OHIO. Thursday, September 23, 1878. TOWN & COUNTRY. Ed. L. Boardman, Local Editor The County Commissioners were in session last Saturday. Since the cool weather of the past few days, oysters have been in fair demand. District Court begins here to-morrow, (Wednesday.) The 13th Eegiment Band will turn out twenty-one men to go to camp at Morrow, Hillsboro's fires seem always to occur on Saturday or Sunday. "We have already heard of 119 men who saved Cant. Sara. Amen's horse, and there are still several townships to hear from. At the meeting of the creditors of B. Ilarris last week. Captain F. F. Kibler was chosen assignee in bankruptcy. The Gazette office has bought an iron safe. Wonder what they are going to keep in it? The New Vienna and Hillsboro turn pike is completed, and the hack line now goes by that route. The street lamps are all being furnished with new burners, the old ones being worn oat. The Eailroads carry our soldier boys to camp for only $1.65 for the round trip, which is a very liberal reduction. The trial of the Brushcreek barnburners will probably be the most interesting case that will come up in Court net term. Henry Schwinesberger has been lying Tcry low with fever for a couple of weeks past. The barbers are beginning to cut on their prices, and you can now get a shave for five cents at Jim Younc's ehop, near Bell's Foundry. The firemen took their steamer out Sun day morning, and filled the three cisterns emptied at the fire Saturday night, from Boyd's mill-pond. Two glazier's diamonds were loBt at the fire Saturday night, and the finder will be liberally rewarded by leaving them at Seybert & Co.'s drug 6tore. It is reported that Col. Denver will send guard after every member of the 13th regiment who does not go to camp, and take them by force. Bigelow street , the new street between the Kipley pike and the West Union road, almost completed, and will be a great convenience for the people on the hill. Judge Jas. II. Thompson has 22 cases bankruptcy in Fayette county next week, where he will go on Tuesday and remain until the election. Solomon Day, (colored) and Cyrus New by, Esq., will address the colored folks at Colored School House near Fairfield Meeting House, on Saturday night, Octo ber 5th. The Temperance meeting next Sunday afternoon will be led by Mr. M. T. Van pelt, and will be an "experience meeting," open to all who desire to make short speeches. The Young People's Prayer Meeting, which is held every Sunday evening at the Presbyterian church, keeps growing in in terest, and is always attended by a large number of young ladies and gentlemen. Our townsman, Professor Lewis McKib ben, has a number of young men whom he instructing by private lessons at his resi dence, which is almost as good as a college education. The colored folks enjoyed a ball at City Hall last Thursday evening, and made unpleasant for the citizens in the neigh borhood, by the continuous racket they kept up until a late honr. Mr. Jeff Hildebrant, of Wilmington, had carriage broken to pieces and a fine span of horses severely injured by a runa way last week, but fortunately escaped without injury. Our old friend, Major Sam L. LefEng- well, of Chillicothe, one of the oldest news paper men in the State,has gone to Indian apolis to take the editorial charge of a new Sunday newspaper. The Clermont Courier has been purchas by Mr. John B. Woodlicf, of that place, who has already taken poscssion of the pa per, air. J no. tl. r airman, tne spicy ixcal the paper, will be retained. Mrs. James H. Thompson has our thanks a basket of nice white clings from her peach orchards north of town. Mrs. T. shipped about 800 bushels of peaches the Cincinnati market this season. The 6th regiment, O. N. G., composed of companies from Chillicothe, Washing ton, C.H., Waverly, Orclcville, Piketon and Ironton, were in camp at Chillicothe last week, under the command of Col. Entrc kin. The peach orchards in this county have proved a bonanza to their owners this year, thousands ot bushels have been shipped to the Cincinnati and other mar kets, and have brought an average of at least $1 per bushel, clear of all expenses. these figures peach-growing "pays," even if the crop does fail every other year. Clubbing with the Burlington Hawkeye. We have just made arrange ments with this celebrated paper, by which can furnish it in connection with the News, at the very low price of $2.75 a year for the two papers. This is 75 cents than the regular subscription price, Hawkeye being $2 a year to regular subscribers. Send in your money and names at once, if you wont the best huiror ous paper in the country, and the best home paper in your county. Col. A. T. Cook, formerly of the Ellicott House, took possession of the Kramer House last Thursday, and honored us with invitation to dinner. It is unnecessary say that the Col. 6ets a good table, and serves his meals in good style. His years experience in the hotel business, and popularity with th people of our coun ty, ought to insurchim success. Mr. Kich ard Julian, the attentive clerk of the Kra mer, is very attentive to guests and is mak ing himself popular with all who know him. to to as in ed the to get in as the a of he to of of 31 be Republican Meetings. We call the attention of Bepubliancs to the list of appointments for meetings at various points in the county, which will be found" on our second page. Let our friends each locality make all the necessary arrangements for these meetings, and 'eee that they are well attended. The campaign now fairly opened; let it be a lively one from this time on till the election. did the The Georgetown Fair has been postpon ed until the 2d, 3d and 4th of October. Talk about hard times, and then look at our column of marriages this week. Mr. I. A. Feibel is improving his resi dence on North High street, by building handsome addition to the front part of it. The Keauing Koom is now ncpc open nutil 10 o'clock P. M- and is alwavs well filled up to that hour. The Winchester Fair commences to-day (Tuesday) and continues until Friday Quite a number of our citizens will attend. We (the Local) leave to-morrow morning (Wednesday) for Morrow, O., to go into camp with the 13th Eegiment. Posters are out for a Democratic meeting at New Vienna next Saturday, to be ad dressed by Gen. Thos. Ewing. Mr. Jas. Ervin and wife are both lying sick with typhoid fever, at their residence on East Walnut street. A brick pavement is being laid in front of Mrs. McDowell's reaidencc, on North nigh street, which was badly needed. Miss Emily Grandgirard is putting up a handsome two-story brick on the site of her old residence on East Main street. Mayor Beeson shouldered the hose at the fire Saturday night, and worked like an old fireman. Pike Gore fell into the cistern in front of the church, at the fire Saturday night, after it had been pumped dry, but suffered no injury save the "barking of a shin." Have you got your valise packed ? is the question the soldiers boys have been asking each other on the streets for the last two or three days. The townjwill be unusuallyjdull for the next week, without its hundred "bad boys." The gossips will get a week's rest, however, but they will more than make it up after the boys return. Some one entered Mr. Samuel Amen's residence about 12 o'clock Saturday night, after the fire, but was frightened off by Mrs. Amen, who heard him walking in the hall. Col. Noble went to Waynesville.O- last week, to inspect a new military company, that was to be attached to the 13th Eegi ment, but they were rejected on account of having no arms or uniforms. John Day (colored) was arrested Satur day night, charged with being drunk and disorderly, and locked up in the calaboose. He was brought before the Mayor Monday morning and his fine and costs amounted $3.50. The Eepublican "boys" are offering to bet two to one that Gardner will be the next Probate Judge, with do takers. The Democrats haven't got enough confi dence in Kirby to put their money up on him. A large poster printed in Wilmington, announcing the Morrow encampment, hangs in Moyers & Co.'s window, which peaks of the 13th Eegiment Band as being 'one of the best military bands in the State." Correct ! Mr. James Quinn received a letter from the President of the Howard Belief Asso ciation at Memphis, last Monday, acknowl edging the receipt of, and thanking him for, the $103 he collected among our busi ness men for the relief of the fever suffer ers. A special train on the M. & C. Eailroad the Morrow Encampment next Sunday, would pay. We have heard a large num ber of our citizens express a desire to go, Sunday will be the big day. and they want to see what the boys can do away from home. Capt. Ed. Mullenix, of the Scott Dra goons, was presented with a handsome sword Saturday evening, by the members f his company. The sword was purchased Cincinnati. They kept the affair a pro found secret , not even giving the reporters An of do. n inkling of what was going on. You can't get ahead of us, however. Correction. Messrs. S. E. Brown A Son, of Sterling Stock Farm, send us a pos tal, asking us to state, that they were award at the late Fair, 1st premium on Berk shire boar, 1st sweepstakes premium on same, and sweepstakes on herd of boar and 3 sows, each $10. In the awards as published, some of these premiums were erroneously credited to Samuel Wilkins. Bob Doggett introduced a new game on streets Saturday, which the country boys took to as naturally as a duck to wa ter. He has the figure of a "colored lady" with a pipe in her mouth, and allows you take three throws at it, with a club, for five cents. Every time you hit the pipe you a cigar, and if you hit it three times in succession, a quarter. Our townsman, Mr. C. IL Collins, at tended a regular country fair at Bantam, Clermont county, last week, and says he never saw such a display of flowers and ag ricultural products. The largest premium the speed ring was $10, but the people turned out, and everybody seemed to en joy themselves. He speaks of the people being very hospitable to strangers. ed be a of tha Cruelty to Animals. Our. venerable townsman, Patrick Daughcrty, on Wednesday evening of last week, tried to lead his old blind horse into stable, when it struck its head against post. Patrick being under the influence liquor, let his temper get away with him, and beat the poor brute over the head with a dray-pin in a most cruel manner. A complaint was filed against him by one of neighbors, of cruelty to animals, and was taken before Mayor Beeson on Mon day, his fine and costs amounting to $6. up the Large Wheat Yield. Last week we published a notice request ing farmers who have large yields of wheat report them to E. E. WTaddell, Secretary the Highland County Stock and Agri cultural Society, and Mr. David Hixson, Pcnn tp. is the first to report. He raised bushels to the acre. It was the Egyp tian red wheat, a bearded variety. The grain is plump, and makes a flour of splen did quality. Thirty-one and a half bush els to the acre is a good yield, but it may that some of our farmers can do better than that. Let us hear from you, friends, and tell ub what you have been doing. of ers, He Democratic Meeting. The Democrat ic opening of the campaign this afternoon, (Tuesday) at Music Hall, was a rather tame affair, notwibstanding presence of that "big gun," Hon. Geo. Pendleton, IT. S. Senator elect. Music Hall was about half full, many of the au dience being Eepublicans. Mr. Pendleton not speak with his usual ease and abil ity, but seemed to labor, as if he had some thing weighing on his mind. We thought probably it was the news from Maine, of falling off of over 14,000 in the Demo cratic vote since last year gone over to "Greenbackery." of the are it. FIRE! CAPT. AMEN'S BARN COMPLETELY DESTROYED. Supposed to be the Work of an Incendiary. At ten minutes after 10 o'clock last Sat urday night, our citizens were startled by an alarm of fire, and a bright light in the vicinity of the M. E. church, and many thought at first that the church was in flames, but it proved to be Capt. Samuel Amen's barn, at the rear of his lot adjom- ng the church lot. The Fire company turned out promptly, and in precisely eight minutes after the first tap of the bell, they had the engine at the cistern in front of the church, and were playing on the flames. Although the fire had burst through the roof before it was discovered, the two strong streams of wat er soon quickly subdued the flames, and had the supply of water not given out, the lower part of the stable might have been saved. As it was, the cistern was pumpted dry in a few minutes, after which the en gine was removed to the cistern at the cor ner of High and Walnut streets, which was also emptied. It was then taken to the cistern at the corner of South and East streets, which was also emptied. Although there was a stable adjoining Mr. Amen's, it was not burned, and none of the buildings in the neighborhood were damaged. The stable was full of hay and other feed, and contained a horse and two buggies, several sets of harness, &c, which were all saved, through the efforts of Dr. Hoyt, Capt. Evans, Marshal McConnaugh- ey, Jos. Ellifritz, and a few others, who were among the first to arrive at the scene of the conflagration. The fire originated in the hay mow, and Mr. Amen is positive it was the work of an incendiary, as none of his family had been in the stable since 5 o'clock in the af ternoon, when his son went down to feed. Mr. Amen estimates his loss at about $600, with no insurance. The firemen deserve credit for their prompt action, but all the efforts of the best firemen in the world would be of no avail, without a supply of water. If a large fire were to break out it might sweep the whole town, and could not be checked for want of water. With the exception of the two large cisterns at the public square, there is scarcely any water at all. There are quite a number of cisterns scattered through the town, but they hold only a few barrels of water each, and can be empt ied in from five to ten minutes. The town authorities should give the matter their immediate attention, and take some steps to insure an ample supply of water in case of fire. We are indebted to Mr. Ben. Johnson foreman of the News office, for a New Or leans Daily Times, of .the 17th, sent to his wife by a friend in that city. It contains over a column and a half of acknowledg ments of money received from the North, East and West, by the Howard and vari other oenevoicnt associations ol that city, for the relief of the yellow fever sufferers. Indencent Language. On Thursday night of last week Mark Thomas, colored, in company with three colored women, went down the railroad track, using some very improper language. affidavit was filed against him the next morning by Mr. John I. Young, colored, and Thomas was arrested and taken before Mayor Beeson, who fined him $2 and costs, and gave him a talking to, warning him to conduct himself properly in the future. Liberality. Mr. Wm. Scott pays the Eailroad fare the Scott Dragoons to Morrow, O., where they go into camp to-day, (Wednesday,) which is a very handsome thing for him to The Scott Dragoons have given the 13th Eegiment Band $15 towards paying their expenses to camp, feeling that they were under obligations to them for furnish ing free music for the company on several occasions. The County Commissioners. ers Were in session on Saturday, but transact no business of importance with the ex ception of passing bills to the amonnt of about $350, and ordering the gap in the Cincinnati turnpike below Dodsonville to Macadamized, in compliance with petition presented to them, signed by twenty-one land owners, living on the line said road. Teachers' Certificates. At the meeting of the Board of School Examiners on Saturday, Sept. 21st, 1878, eleven applicants were enrolled, and certi ficates issued as follows : Sn Months Lydia Davis, Jacob Pleas ants. Twelve Months Thomas W. Shafer. Eighteen Months Elgar Brown, Ber S. Eeckly, Callie E. Shepherd, John Van Winkle. I certify the above to be correct. Teachers' Certificates. H. S. DOGGETT, Clerk. Lost Pocketbook. Last Friday night, Dr. McCafferty, ex press messenger on the M. & C. Eailroad, went into the water-closet of the Kramer House, and took a pocket-book containing $60 out of his pocket and laid it on sill. When he left he forgot to pick it again, and never thought of it until 9 o'clock the next morning,when he was on the train at Loveland. He immediately tele graphed to Col. Cook, but the pocket-book could not be found, and up to this writing, (Monday) no trace of it has been discovered. "Moral Causes of Drunkenness." As announced in our columns last week, Temperance meeting Sunday afternoon, led by Mr. A. Manning, and addrrsse Judge Thompson, on the "M ral Causes Drunkenness." The Hall was Conffort- ahly filled with an intelligent audience, the tage was handsomely decorated with flow and the music, furnished by the mem bers of the different church choirs, was ex cellent. Judge Thompson spoke nearly an hour, making an able and stirring address. He held the close attention of his audience, all were favorably impressed. He came down heavily on "hereditary drunk enness," and denounced the doctrine as false believed no man was doomed to be a drunkard, but brought it on himself by his indulgence, and asked why were there more drunken vmien, if the love of al cohol was hereditary ? He believed the principal moral causes drunkenness to be the avarice of the liq uor seller, and on the part of the drink ers, debt, disappointed ambition, jealousy, idleness ic. He took np each cause sepa rately, and clearly showed how it led to drunkenness, illustrating his arguments in most eloquent language. A fine vein of humor ran through the address, which frequently called forth en thusiastic applause, and we regret that we not able to give a complete synopsis of Our County Infirmary. We glean the following facts from the emi-annual reports of the directors of the County Infirmary to the County Commis sioners, for the year ending Sept. 6, 1878: Total Expenditures $ 4714 47 Total Receipts 677 44 Net Expenditures 4037 03 In the above account there was expend ed outside during the year, for the relief of paupers in the various townships in the county, $1918.47, making the total expenses for the year for the Infirmary proper, $2118.56. Number of inmates Sept. 6, 1878, 36 ; males 19, females 17. It will be seen from the above figures, that the amount expended outside the in stitution, is almost equal to the total ex penses for the year, which gives evidence that the directors are making a proper dis tribution of the county fund, and doing all in their power to relieve the needy of the county, whether they arc inmates of the Infirmary or not, for which they are to be commended and sustained by the public. Horse Stealing. Mr. John H. Adams passed through this place Sunday afternoon, going south, in search of a horse that was stolen from his pasture, about a mile from Ccnterfield, on Saturday night. The police saw a man pass through town on horse-back about two o'clock Sun day morning, going towards Newmarket and as the horse answered pretty well to the description of the one stolen from Mr. Adams, he started south to see if he could get any trace of it. i.o. oince me aoove was in tvpe we I ' f . . 1 . learn that the horse Was recovered Sunday evening near New Petersburg, by Mr. Dan. Anderson, of Centerficld, who was out hunting for it. The horse was found in the road, and it is supposed to have been been ridden by some one and turned loose. Of course the horse which Mr. Adams fol lowed towards the river was not his. Cutting Affray. Two young colored boys named Fleni. Johnson and Billy Day, got into a difficul ty on East Main street last Monday night, which resulted in Day cutting Johnson on the arm with a knife, inflicting a flesh wound two and one-half inches in length. Policeman Willett arrested Dav, and lodg ed him in the calaboose, and he was brought before the Mayor Tuesday morn ing, but as he is only fourteen years of age and Johnson's wound is not dangerous, the Mayor did not fine him, but kept him locked up for a while to teach him not to be so reckless with his knife in future.

Miss Sallie Glascock entertained the "Coterie" last Thursday evening, at her residenee on South street. Mr. James Clark, of Clermont county one of the Directors ot the Fayettevile and Cincinnati narrow gauge railway, was in town on Friday, and made us a call. Dr. Arthur Noble, of Winchester, Adamp county, was in town last week, and gave the News office a pleasant call. Miss SalKe Eoad3 returned home last week, from an extended visit to her sister, Mrs. Jno. Swiger, of Boothsville, W. Va. Mr. P. L. Hallstead, of Plumas county, Cal., son of A. A. Hallstead, of Russell Station, arrived at that place last week, after an absence of twenty -four years. Mr. Chas. E. Bell, of St. Louis, formerly of this place, is spending a week at home.

Our popular conductor, Mr. Scott Mc Clelland, got leave of absence Wednesday for three weeks, during which time he will go to Chicago and attend the annual Con ductors' Convention. Mr. Sam.

At City Hall, Wednesday night, was well attended, and although the admission was only 10 cents, the receipts were over $20. He has changed his mind about re turning to Africa in October, and will prob ably not go until the latter part of Novem ber. His lecture was quite interesting, and exceedingly well delivered. He handled the subject, "Africa," as only a native could, and the idols, charms, agricultural implements, weapons and other curiosities he exhibited, were viewed with much in terest. All who were present were much pleased, and learned something of African manners and customs. Mr. Wilbcrforce will probably return here and deliver an other lecture before he sails for his native land. As many of our citizens could not attend his locture last week, on account of the prayer meetings at the various churches, we hope, should he return, he will have a crowded house. Twenty-Fourth independent Battery, O. V. L. A. Battery, O. V. L. A. HILLSBORO, O., Sept. 9, 1878. Mr. Editor: I see that Hon. James H. Thompson, of this place, has written and published a History of Highland Coun ty; and in looking over the list of military or ganizations accre'lited to the county during the rebellion, the 24th Battery has been en tirely ignored or lorgotten, winch 1 think is a great over-sight and neglect, that docs the battery and its friends a very great in justice, and makes the history of the coun tr very incomplete. Now, Mr. Editor, if you will be so kind as to allow me a small space in your valua ble paper, I will, in a plain and unvarnished way, give a short and incomplete history of the organizatioa and services of the bat tery, which justice to it demands at mv hands by reason of Mr. Thompson's failure to notice it in his history of the county Early in the Spring of 1863, when others were trying to get the appointment, Gov. lot! placed sufficient confidence in the pa triotism and ability of Capt. J. L. Hill, a poor clerk of Hillsboro, Ohio, without any thing or anybody to recommend him but his former services in the 60th Ohio Eegi ment, saw fit to appoint him with full pow er to recruit and organize the 24th Inde pendent Battery, O. V. L. A., at a time when the success of the Government looked extremely dark and gloomy, and when en listments throughout the State had almost entirely stopped. Capt. Hill accepted the honored appointment, and secured the as sistance of Lieutenants James W. Gamble and James J. lirown, and a few others, went to work with a will to recruit men for the battery, and with hard work and perseverance, with but little assistance from outside of those who joined the bat tery and afterwards participated in its hon ors and hardships! The battery, on the 4th day of August, 1S63, at Camp Dcnnison, Ohio, was mus tered into service of the United States bv Capt. J. L. Porter, U. S. A. Mustering Offi cer, with more than a full complement of young men from a great many of the best families of Hillsboro and Highland coun ty, Ohio, calling it Hill s Highland Bat- terv. The battery, after receiving its equip ments, consisting of six No. 10 Eodman guns, with all appurtenances belonging, and 110 horses, was ordered by General J. L. Cox, then commander ot the JNorthern Department, to Pendleton Barracks, Cin cinnati, Ohio, where it remained until the latter part of November, 1863, when it re turned to Camp Dennison, and in a few days was ordered to report to the comman der of the force at Johnson's Island, near Sandusky City, Ohio, where it remained guarding the entrance to Sandusky Bay un til February, 1H64, when by request of Capt. Hill, General Heintzelman, the com mander of the Northern Department, order ed him to select a Camp for the battery on the main land near Sandusky City, which he did, about two miles east of the city a beautiful grove well adapted for the pur pose, which was named in honor of the commander of the battery, Camp Hill. During the month of Februarv, 18G4, the battery left Johnson's Island and Cedar roint, went into Lamp Hill, which was laid off into regular streets, good wall tents with good pine floors, were put up in reg ular form, and niinfature front yards were laid out, sodded and beautified with flowers and evergreens, and fences made with wil boughs or branches in a variety of shapes and forms, according to the tastes and genius ot the occupants of the sever al tents, which gave the camp a most beau tiful and picturesque appearance, and which was acknowledged by all who saw it (and they were counted by thousands) the neatest and most beautiful military camp they ever saw ; which camp was occupied and enjoyed by the battery and visited by hundreds of citizens of Sandusky and vi cinity until about the first of August, 1864, when the battery was ordered to report to the commander at CampChase,near Colum bus, Ohio, where it stayed only a short time. About the latter part of August, 1864, Captain Hill received secret orders to re port as soon as possible to the commander Camp Douglass, near Chicago, His. During that (Saturday) night they broke camp, marched to the railroad depot near Columbus, O., where an extra train was in waiting. The batterv was loaded and on its way to Chicago by day-break next morning. 1 he next day (Monday) about noon landed at Chicago, unloaded the bat tery and marched through the city to Camp Douglass and reported to General J. 15. tiweet, commander of the post, forduty. The General was taken very much by sur prise, he not having been advised of the battery's coming until the Captain reported person, and no one can imagine the joy and pleasure he manifested when he realiz ed that the batterv had come to assist him with his little band of veteran reserve to guard and keep secure the fourteen or fif teen thousand of rebel prisoners enclosed ltmn a plank fence not more than an inch thick. The batterv remained, doing varied du ties as the Government and commander of the post required of it until the, close of the war and peace declared, when it was order ed by the Secretary of War to Camp Dcn nison, Ohio, where the battery was born and grew into manhood ; and on the 24th day of June, 1865, it was honorably mustered out of service and returned to their wel come homes in Hillsboro, and the old coun ty of Highland, where they were received by their numerous friends and relatives, feeling well satisfied that they had done theit duty nobly and well. And now, in conclusion, let me say to the many friends of the 24th Independent Bat tery, O. V. L. A., and also in justice to nearly 200 of its members, although the battery was never engaged in active service but nobly done its duty well, it never falt ered, but obeyed and executed all orders is sued to it to the general satisfaction of all the numerous commanders under which it was placed. No other independent milita ry organization, either regimental or bat tery, within the great State of Ohio, ever received more complimentary orders or higher honors from those higher in author ity than the 24th Independent Battery O. V. L. A. The battery was under the command of such Generals as J. D. Cox, Terry, Heint zelman, Sa vior, Sweet and others of small er note, and frequently received from them complimentary orders of its officers and men on their fine appearance, soldierly bearing, good discipline and efficency in drill. After a review of the battery at Camp Douglass by Gen. Joe. Hooker, just before the muster out, the General met Capt. Hill at the door of the office at head quarters (where the Captain had gone to call on him), took his hand in both of his, grasping it, saying : "Captain, you have the oest appearing battery I have ever seen." The battery numbered about 200 officers and men, representing almost every part Highland county, whose families repre sented some of the very best in Highland county. It was the only complete independent military organization raised and accredited Highland county during the war; and how Mr. Thompson, the historian of the county, could overlook or forget that such organization had ever existed, is more than I can tell. I think that the majority of the good people of the county were and are now proud know they were so well represented by such a battery organization during the war. I now close by hoping and trusting that the future historian will do the justice at least of mentioning the 24th Independent Battery, O. V. L. A., as a part of the mili tary organizations of Highland county dur ing the late rebellion. Yours, TWENTY-IOVKTH liATTERY. Business men, if you want any kind of printing, give us a call. Prices very reasonable. Home Correspondence. A Card from Sheriff Newell. Mr. Editor: The reporters, in their re port of the recent attempt to break jail, have done the keeper great injustice. In the first place the reporter for the Hills boro Gazette says : "Our vigillant .Sher iff permitted Mackey and Lynch to use their saw-mill a week before they were discovered." I know this to be untrue. They commenc ed operations about Wednesday, as I awoke at 2 o'clock, and hearing an unusual noise, got up and made an examination, but could not see or hear anything wrong. On Thursday night, I was awake all ni'!; but all seemed quiet. On Friday nipht having lost much sleep, I did not awake until after day-light, went into the cell at once, and made the discoverv, and am sat isfied they did the greater part of the work en rriuay night, and it would have re quired another night's work for them to have eilected their escape at all. So you will see the statement that they had been at work for a week is not true, and that I aid exercise some vigilance. As for the charge, that Tom. Dick and Harry, and any body and everybody, have uecii jttri milieu iu go inio ine jail ana laiK to the prisoners, that is false, as no one is permitted to visit the prisoners or talk to them unless in the presence of some of the jail attendants. e have been verv care ful in the matter of visiting the jail, have Dcen very caretui to see that none ot -Mack-ey's or Lynch's friends had an opportunity to give them tools to work with. I think they were handed through the window from the outside. As for Kendall, the horse thief, he has never made an attempt to break lail at all. The iron bar the reporters speak of, as having been sawed, was cut in one place years ago, and was sawed by some thieves confined during the Fair. It would have required many such cuts to have restored Kendall to light and liberty. During the time I have had charge of the jail, 1 have had in my custody one hundred and twenty-one prisoners,and hardly a week passes but that some of them attempts to break jail, and the public knows that the only successiul attempts that have been made were made during my absence from the jail and from town. I do not object to the visits of newspaper men, but I want them to report the truth and do the keeper ol thejailjustice. Hop ing that the editors and reporters will "give us a fair count" in the matter, I am yours truly, W. C.NEWELL, Sheriff and Jailor. Buford. Farmers cutting corn. E. W. & D. N. G. in statu quo.

Letter from Marysville, O. MARYSVILLE, O., Sept. 15, 1878. Ed. News: Another week will complete my three months' trip work and eight-seeing. It is not likely that many of your readers will follow my example, and make a trip to Lake Chautauqua and other points of interest by private conveyance, and I thiuk mine the only record yon will be called to make of such a heroic trip. Yet I have enjoyed it very much. It has been remu nerative in many ways ; besides, 1 have "dined 6umrjtuousIy every day." The "fat of the land" has been at mv command. Peaches of the finest quality, grapes and mel ons, and all things else needful for the "inner man," are laying around loose in all directions wherever I have been. And it does not require any great stretch of the imagination to see "good times" in the near future. I believe they are coming, in fact are almost at our doors. And why not? The bountiful crops are moving, the great trunk lines of railways are almost blockaded with freight, being months behind in the shipment both East and West; the balance of trade in our favor ; resumption almost ac complished, confidence being restor ed, and why should we not expect real prosperity to reign throughout the country under these circumstan ces ? And why should partisans dare to disturb the present order of things? Are they not afraid that the Republican party will have the credit of a sound financial policy, which willl ead them to victory, and spoil the chances of the Dsmocracy ? Shall we not deal justly ? Shall we not have an honest dollar? Should not the Nation, a3 well as individ uals, be honest? If the law makers will only quit "doctoring" the finan ces, industry and economy will com plete the work of restoring good times. A very sad and sensational . SUICIDE. occurred here on Friday last A young Swiss, by the name of Gross enback, 23 years of age, a druggist by profession, was engaged to be married about the first of August to an estimable young lady of this place, who suddenly sLkened and died. The young man was deeply affected, and for sometime was men tally deranged, but rallied, and was thought to be getting along well : but last Friday be went to the house of Mr. King, the father of the young ladv, said he had the headache and wanted to go up stairs and lie down on Dora's bed. He did so, and in a very short time Mrs. King went up to the room and found him dead. He had taken Prussic acid and died almost instantly. He left a letter, giving directions about the funeral, his remains to be placed beside those of Miss King and a monument erect ed to both. A large concourse of people assem bled at the M. E. church to witness the funeral exercises. W. F. C. Dickey at Batavia. Clermont Courier: The Hon. Dickey must have gone away from Batavia with no very favorable im pression in a political point of view. His coming had been announced through the Democratic press, and by posters many. Lnclo Ike Potter for his share, or for pay, had tramp ed from door to door in an effort to draw a crowd, but though the night came and Dickey came and Jim Gor don, correspondent of the Enquirer, came, scarely no one eise except Dale, Koudebush, and Frank Acra put in an appearance at the Court House. Last Wednesday was a sor ry night for Batavia Democracy. It was apparent that their very bad lo cal record had so far influenced the mind of the masses who had before prided and gloried in Democracy that they had determined not to honor their Congressional leader by their presence. There were a few Repub licans present, some of whom soon left saying they had heard that same speech so often that they now felt no interest in hearing it repeated. Oth ers complained that the word ha d been sent to them by Democrats that there was to be a Republican speech at the Court House, and that they had been deceived. This was wick ed in these Democrats. But in these times no greater wrong among Dem ocrats is regarded lightly by those who knew them best. This was Dickey 8 first visit to Batavia, it will be his last for many a day. His speech was as above intimated very moderate and common place. He would make greenbacks equal to and interchangeable with gold. Sowould we. He would do any thing which the wisdom of Congress might sug gest in the way of legislation to keep greenbacks equal to gold coin, and even vote to increase the volume. At this point being admonished that he had talked too long, he closed with out telling the few present anything more than that the Lower House was in great danger of falling into Re publican hands, to which the Repub licans present responded amen, and the squad at the Court House ad journed, impressed that McKnight will "Walk" over the track in this dis trict. The Boys in Blue intend to be heard from in the October election. Those camp-fires mean business. of In his place in the "United States Senate in December, 1S74, Senator Thurtnan gave the following reasons for the existence of our late monetary troubles, together with the proper remedy therefor : 'The panic was the result of over trading and extravagance, until at last the bubble burst, and then came a season of retrenchment and econ omy. In the history of this country it h is been shown that the business of t'ue country never revives in a less penod than four years after a pan ic. Nothing but time, honesty, econ omy and retrenchment will set business in motion and make the country prosperous. Tinkering at our financial system will never ac complish the result" This was before Senator Tbuiman had embraced the "Ohio idea", and had consented to becme a dema gogue in the hope of becoming Pres ident The Democratic officials of the Soldiers' Orphans' Home have given out that they will not obey the law passed by the O'Connor Legislature, meaning of course, until after the October election.
