Remember Geo. fctevenson's neat little jewelry establishment, near the southwest corner of Main and High streets, when too want anything in his line.

Policeman Sam Lyle is to receive a re ward of $300 from the Citizens' Committee Bruschcreek tp. for his services in work ing np the case, and obtaining evidence against the defendants.

He lias a written contract with the Committee, to the effect that the money will be paid as soon as the person who burned John Bell's barn is convicted, and as two of the gang have been found guilty, he will no doubt receive the money. Sunday's Temperance Meeting. Wa9 led by Mr. Chas. Simpson, and the hall was filled with a good audience.- The meeting was briefly addressed by Judge Jas. H. Thompson, Rev. H. L. Geer, of Xenia. and the leader, Mr. Simpson. Mr. Jas. W.

The meeting was a good one, and proved that the Temperance sen timent is steadily growing stronger in this community. Southern Ohio Teachers' Association. A meeting has been called at Waverly, Saturday, Feb. 22d, to organize a Teachers' Association, which will probably be called the "The Southern Ohio Teachers' Associa tion." Profs. Richardson, of Chillicothe, and E. B. Cox, of Piketon, are the leading spirits. ' Let me urge it upon the teachers of our countv, to attend this meeting. All other parts of the State have their local organiza tion, and it is painful to see our county be" hind. Trains on the Scioto Valley and the Springfield, Jackson & Pomeroy Ry. will carry teachers at half-fare. Trains on the latter leave Greenfield at 9 A. M. and 4:35 P. M. Let us Bend a few representatives to this meeting. D.BAILEY, Editor Teachers' Column. A NEW COUNCIL CHAMBER. Removal of the Post Office. At the meeting of Council on Monday night of last week, a resolution was pre sented, instructing the Chairman of the Public Building Committee to notify the postmaster that he cannot occupy the room ia that building after the term expires for which it is now rented, the room being needed for a Council Chamber, for w hich it was originally designed. The resolution was laid on the table until the next meet ing. It is proposed to furnish the room with desks, tables and seats, and we think it would be a good idea, as the room now used for the Mayor's office and Council Chamber is entirely too small, being originally de signed for the Clerk's office. The post office could easily be removed to another room, dnd we feel inclined to favor" the adoption of the resolution. Teachers' Certificates. At a meeting of the Board on Saturday, Feb. 1st, eighty applicants were enrolled and certificates were issued as follows: For Six Months Ollie Burgess, Mary McCormick, Cora A.Gibson, Fromia Smith, Amanda Smith, Sadie Puckett, Emma Morrow, Ada Sanders, Emma Cadwalader, Marie Chancy , Kiltie Clianey, Josie Tudor, Allie Littler, Mary J.

THE PRETENDED HIGHWAY ROBBERY OF ELIJAH WALKER, A Set-Up Job to Keep from Paying His Debts. Walker Refuses Swear to His Statement. In our issue of the 2d of January last, there appeared an article headed "High way Robbery," in which it was stated that Elijah Walker, of Concord tp., was knocked down on West street, at about dusk in the evening and robbed of over $400. It was thought there was something very myste rious about the affair at the time, but as Walker was supposed to be a truthful man we published his statement as he gave it toJhe police at the time. Policeman Sam. Lyle has been engaged ever since in trying to solve the mystery, and is satis fied that he has succeeded. Walker went to Policeman Lyle's house directly after he w as robbed(?) and made the following statement, which Mr. Lvle committed to writing: Hillsboro, Dec. 26, 1878. 'Was robbed of $399.80 in greenbacks and currency, on West street, near O. J. Eckley's residence, by two men who caught me in the middle of the street. One of the men knocked me down and held a revol ver to my head, and the other searched me for my money. I think they were heavy set men, and they talked like negroes. One had on a soft black hat, and was a slender person. Tbey came towards town after they jobbed me, and I went down to James Moore's before I gave the alarm. There were four half-dollars in my pocket-book, in addition to the currency, and one note of hand with my name torn off, which I had paid. The pocket-book was a leather one,. lastened with a strap. . ELIJAH WALKER. The statement was read to Walker twice before he signed it, and he declared it cor rect. He went home the next day, giving Mr. Lyle instructions to try and discover the perpetrators of the bold deed. Walker returned to town in a few days, when Lyle told him he would take him before the Mayor and let him make affidavit to the above statement, so that he would have something to work upon. Walker stam mered and hesitated, and asked "if it would get him into any trouble to swear to it?" He finally refused to make affidavit thats day, but promised to return and do so the next Saturday. Three Saturdays have since passed, and pot a word has been heard from Walker, and Policeman Lyle is pretty well satisfied that Walker's story is false. Lyle has been inquiring into Walker's financial affairs, and finds that he is heels over head in debt, and that he won't pay It seems pretty evident that the whole storv of the robberv was concocted to de fraud his creditors. We are glad that Hillsboro has been cleared ot the disgrace ot having such a bold highway robbery committed on her streets in daylight, and in the future we advise men who want to fabricate such outrageous stories to select some other lo cality, as oht police are too sharp to be fooled by such thin devices, and those who resort to them are sure to be exposed and held up to the scorn and contempt of the community. FINANCIAL TROUBLES. Three Assignments Last Week in Highland County. J. Duffey, the Confectioner, W. G. Parker, of Peen, and Nelson Shaw, of Concord Tp. Last Saturday morning it wag rumored about the streets that Mr. John W. Duf fcy, the High street Confectioner, had made an assignment. A News reporter at once' ascertained the facts in the case, and also learned of two other assignments. Mr. Duffey's liabilities amount to a trifle over $1,000, and his assets, including book accounts, are estimated at about $850. Mr. C. M. Overman has. been appointed as- ignee, his bond being fixed at $2,000. The indebtedness is mostly to Cincinnati firms, none of whose claims are much over $100. There are, however, several secured claims, among which is that of the Citizens' Na tional Bank. The store is in the hands of the assignee, by whom the business is still being carried on. Mr. Duffey turned over everything, and it is thought he will pay from 50 to 75 cents on the dollar. The cause of the failure, no doubt, was extend ing credit too freely, and doing business on borrowed capital at a high rate of inter est. Mr. Duffey s failure is deeply regret ted, as he is a straightforward, honorable and industrious young man, and he has the sympathy of the entire community, to whom the announcement of his trouble was a general surprise, as he appeared to be doing a thriving business. On Wednesday of last week, Mr. Wm. G. Parker, of Penn tp., made an assign ment, aud Dr. B. R. Shipp was appointed assignee, his bond being fixed at $2,500. The assets are about $ 1,800, and the lia bilities only $800, so that Mr. Parker will no doubt pay iu full and have something left. He was compelled to make the as signment, as there was a mortgage on his property which was about to be foreclosed. Mr. Nelson Shaw, of Concord tp., also made an assignment last week, to Dr. Ar thur Noble, of Winchester, whose bond was fixed at $1,500, with Dr. David Noble as surety. The assets are about $800, lia bilities not yet reported. THE COUNTY INFIRMARY. Appointment of a New Superintendent, vice Cluff, Resigned. Twenty-One Applicants, and Mr. J. N. Hogsett Appointed. Mr. J. G. Cluff, Superintendent of the County Infirmary, has resigned his posi tion, and goes to Fayette county to take charge of Mr. James Quinn's farm. He has made a good Superintendent, and the Directors of the Iufirmary regret to part with him. On Wednesday of last week the Board held a meeting at the Infirmary for the purpose of appointing a new Super intendent, but arrived at no decision, and adjourned to meet here on Thursday. There were twenty-one applicants for the position, which was finally given to Mr. J. N. Ilogsett, of this tp. He is well qualified, and will enter upon his du ties the first of March. His salary waB fixed at $500 per annum, and it is the gen eral opinion that he will fill the position creditably. Mr. Hogsett" was formerly a member of the Board of Infirmary Direc tors, and of course has a pretty thorough knowledge of the inslitutioji. Brainard's Musical World. That gem of musical magazines, "The Musical World," comes out this month with all its usual brightness and an unu sually choice lot of ably written articles, and exquisite songs, fantasies, waltzes, etc. A series of papers on reminiscences oi mu sical celebrities is just begun, and will prove very interesting. The music this month is "Baby Mine," a beautiful song for soprano or tenor, "Love and Truth," a fine duet for soprano and alto; "Fairies of Dreamland," ballad; "Exposition" march; "Day Dreams," a fantasy; "Glide Waltz," for two performers. Altogether, this number is one of the best of the sea son so far. Price 15 cents per copy, $1.50 per year. Williams & Manss, Cincin nati, O. BOLD ROBBERY! JNO. KLUTZ, OF ROSS COUNTY, LOSES $82.45. Spencer Penn and John Jones Arrested for the Crime. Jno. Klutz is a well-to-do German, who lives abont three-fourths of a mile from Summit Station, on the S. J. fc P. Kail way, about 12 miles east of Baiubridge. He is an invalid, aud has a hired boy liv ing with him about 18 jears old. Last Saturday night about 10 o'clock, two men came to his house and asked the boy for a match. He stepped back into the room to Ret it, leaving them at the door, and when he went back to hand it to them they drew their revolvers and threatened to kill the yonng man if he made the slightest noise. Then going into the house they blindfolded Mr. Klutz and the boy, and ransacked the house, obtaining 82. 45 in cash from a bnrean drawer, the key of which they found in the old man's pocket. Thev then asked if there was any more money in the honse, aud were told there was not, when they seized upon the old lady and beat her shamefully, threatening to kill her if Bhe did not tell them where a $1,000 bond was, which they thonght was in the house. They kept the boy Bit ting on a chair with two revolvers pointed at hiB head, nntil they became satisfied there was no more money in the house, when they struck the boy on the head with a stick of wood, jumped on their horses and galloped off. As soon an they were gone the .boy ran to a ntighbor's and cave the alarm, bnt no pursuit was made that night. Detective Rittenhouse, of Bainbridge, was employed to work up the case, and at 6 o'clock this morning (Tuesday) he arrest ed John Jones and took him to Bainbridge, where he was fully identified by the old lady and the boy. Mr. Rittenhouse, in company with Marshal J. R. High, of Bainbridge, came to this place about noon and arrested Spencer Penn, who was taken back to Bainbridge, where it is thought he will be identified as Joues's partner in the crime. The examination will be held before 'Squire Hugbey, of Huntington tp. to-mor row (Wednesday). Jones and Penn are both now under in dictment in this county for assault with in tent to kill, in beating J. M. Wisecup, near Cynthiana, and their trial was set for Wednesday of this week, but will of course be postponed. Jones and Penn are both bad characters, and it will be remembered that they were arrested as members of the McKimie gang, but no evidence could be obtained against them. Norris says they are worse charac ters than McKimie, and if so they are bad enough. THE HUNT COMBINATION. The Finest Acting Hillsboro Has Ever Seen. In our last issue we gave a brief notice of the Julia A. Hunt Dramatic Combina tion, which was performing at Music Hall, our space being so limited that we were unable to give them such a notice as they deserved. On Tuesday night "Jane Evre" was performed to a crowded house. Mrs. Hunt, in the leading role, captivated the entire audience, and was greeted with round after round of applause. Messrs. Walton, Benn and McGinnis also proved themselves favorites, and are good actors, as indeed are the entire company. On Wednesday night the laughable new comedy of "Lemous" was presented, when the hall was again crowded. The compa ny left Thursday morning for Lynchburg, where they played two nights, the hall on both occasions being packed full. They turned here Saturday, and in the even ing presented "East Lynne" to one of the finest audiences we have ever seen assem bled in Hillsboro. It was composed of the very best people in the city, and every seat was occupied. "East Lynne" is Mrs. Hunt's master-piece, and her rendition of the leading character was first-class in every particular. During some of the more affecting scenes there was scarcely a dry eye in the house, and ladies and gentlemen alike wept like children. Everybody was pleased, and the company is universally pronounced the best that ever visited Hillsboro. Just before the close of the entertain ment it was announced that the company would return to this place on the 10th of March, for four nights, and play "Fan chon" by request, "The Two Orphans," "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Pearl of Savoy." The announcement almost brought down the house, and there is scarcely a doubt but they will be greeted by large audiences. The visit of this company has proved that our citizens will encourage a good troupe and patronize them as they deserve. They go from here to New Vienna, where they will remain a week and play "Fan chon" at a matinee. We can cheerfully commend them to the public wherever they go. I COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. Council Chamber, Feb. 3, 1879. Council met in regular session; all pres ent except Mayor Beeson. On motion Councilman Glenn was chos en president pro tern. Minutes of last meeting read and ap proved. A proposition was presented by the Hillsboro Gas Light Co. to furnish and erect the ten remaining street lamps re quired by the contract of March 26, 1875, for the sum of $9.50 each. On motion and vote the proposition was accepted. . The following refolution was presented by Councilman Matthews: "Resolved, That the Chairman of the Committee on Public Buildings be and he is hereby directed to notify J. M.

H. AYRES, Clerk. MAPPING THE COUNTY. The Commissioners Reject All the Bids The Commissioners Reject All the Bids and Adjourn Without Arriving at a Decision. Last Friday was the day fixed by the County Commissioners to receive bids for mapping the county, and they met in special session for that purpose. There were six bids submitted, but after consider ation they were all rejected, and the Board adjourned without haying arrived at a conclusion. The law requires the county to be mapped, and the Board have to either advertise for new bids, or instruct the Auditor to have the work done. It is true there is now a map of the county in existence, but- it is notoriously imperfect and inaccurate, and it is the opinion of those best informed that a new and correct map should be made as soon as practicable, in order that all the lands in the county may be returned for taxation. It is certainly unjust to let any land es cape while the rest is taxed, and we think the Commissioners will be sustained by the people in having a new map made. PERSONAL. W. II. Irwin, Esq., of Greenfield, who has been attending Court for several weeks past, returned home last Thursday. Mr. John Anderson, formerly of the Patron's Supply House, has accepted a position with Mr. I. A. Feibel, and will en ter upon his duties on the 15th of this month. Mr. J. W. Balentine, postmaster at Ber ryville, in company with Mr. James Car lisle, of Washington tp., started on Monday morning for a visit to friends at Yillisca, Iowa. Miss Ida Ferrell, of Covington, Ky., a pupil at the Institute, returned last Thurs day, after a sojourn of a few weeks at home, on account of sickness. Miss Hattie Millar, of the Institute. spent several days at home last week, in South Bloomfield, O., attending the wed ding of her brother. Miss Maria "Woodrow, who is teaching in the Union Schools, was taken suddenly ill last week, and her position has been filled the last few days by her sister, Miss Lucy. Gov. 1 rt and wife have returned home from Cleveland, where that gentleman has been attending Court. Judge Minshall, of Chillicothe, was in town last Friday, to hear the motion for new trial in the Bingaman-Gaskin shoot ing case. Messrs. A. M. Mackerly and W. II. Eck man, attorneys of Greenfield, were in town last Saturday, attending to business in Court. Mr. Downing, a son-in-law of Rev. E. Grandgirard, made u a call last Monday. He has been traveling in the Sonth for some time past, engaged in his profession, of portrait painting, and has some notion of locating here. F. D. Bayless, Esq., of the West Union bar, was in town today, (Tuesday) attend ing to business in our court. Esq. Cox, of Whiteoak tp., gave the News office a pleasant call on Monday. A Card from Dr. Gage. DANVILLE, Feb. 6, 1879. Editor of the News: I see in your paper of the 30th of Jan. that many doubted my sincerity in signing the "Mur phy Pledge." I can't see why those doubts should be published to the world, to black en a man's character, without having some reason for so doing. I signed that pledge in good faith, and have kept it as sacredly as any of your doubters ever kept theirs. I have not touched, tasted or han dled one drop of spirits, wine or beer, nor any thing of the kind. You state, as a kind of quietus to this multitude of doubters, that if I don't hold out faithful the Prosecuting Attorney will re-indict me, and if convicted, the Court will punish me severely. J don t- see how you found that out. But don't you think it a queer law, to nolle a ease and still hold it open against the criminal : tint that threat has no terrors for me. I wonder what these doubters do with their motto, "Malice to none, and charity for all." My prayer to God is, that I may never be made a recipient of such charity. The man who reported that I got tight that night before I left town, is simply a liar. I think James Dumenil acted the part of a true Murphy man, and it will nev er injure him a particle with that class of men, whose friendship is worth retaining. think Editors should treat every man fairly and respectfully till they know something against him. Yours, &c. W. G. GAGE. Remarks. We agree with the Doctor's last sentence, and are not conscious of hav ing treated him otherwise than "fairly and respectfully." In reporting the action of the Court in his case, we stated nothing but the atf., and if they bore hard upon him, it is not our fault. We said that many doubted his sincerity, which was strictly true, however unpleasant it may be to him to have the fact published. Also, that the Prosecuting Attorney intended to him if he violated his pledge. This we were expressly authorized to state, by that officer, who no doubt knows the law and his official duty better than Dr. Gage. We sincerely hope the Dr. will keep his pledge faithfully, and if he does so, we can assure him that he will be better and happier man, and enjoy more the confidence and respect of the com munity. Retokter. "Spiritual Songs." We are indebted to the publishers, Scrib ner&Co., New York, for a copy of this new and handsome volume, prepared with view of giving churches a service of praise, in which Christians of every name can unite. One of the strongest vindications of the essential unity of all evangelical Christians of different names is to be found in the fact that they pray and sing alike. Every where one hears the same grand old hymns, wedded to the same grand old tunes, and even though the Christian convert in heath en lands may sing in an unknown tongue, the traveler will recognize the music of the song. "Spiritual Songs," as its name im plies, is a selection of hymns, with music, for both the congregations and the cboirs. The task of selection and arrangement was undertaken by Rev. Charles S. Robinson, D. D., in response to a call from many congregations for a book containing not only the standard lyrics, with their recog nized music, but also the new hymns and tunes, which are the fruits of the advanced spirituality and taste of the present day. The book is very tasteful in appearance, and of convenient size and shape and weight for holding in the hand. The type is full faced and clear, and the paper light and firm. The standard edition is bound is muslin, with red edges, but without ornament, ex cept on the inner side of the cover, which has an appropriate design with texts of Scripture. Piice tl.50. The extra edition, (gilt-edged,) price $2.o0, is bound in American gros-grain silk from the looms of Cheney Bros., of South Manchester, Conn.

Our Court report on Tuesday of last week, closed with the trial of the Brusl creek barnburners still in progress. On Wednesday morning the arguments began, Judge G. B. Gardner opening for the State. He spoke for several hours. going over the whole testimony, and pre senting the case to the jury in a strong and clear light. He was followed by C. II. Collins, Esq, for the defense, in a speech of nearly three hours, and Mr. Collins by W. II. Irwin, Esq. of Greenfield, on the same side, who occupied about the same time. The three arguments occupied a day and a half, consuming the time until Thursday noon, when Mr. Ulric Sloane closed for the State. He spoke for over five hours, mak ing one of the finest speeches we have ever heard in the Court House, and held the close attention of the large crowd of spec tators from the beginning to the close. His argument closed at half past six o'clock, when Judge Steel delivered the following CHARGE TO THE JURY. State of Ohio rs. James C. West and Marion West. Gentlemen ok the Jury: The indict ment charges that the defendants, James C. West and Marion West, (together with others therein named) did, on the 3d day of December, 1877, unlawfully and ma liciously set fire to and burn a certain barn, situate in this county, the property of John Bell, and of the value of $50 and more, In order to convif t the defendants, or either of them, under this indictment, you must be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt, 1. That John Bell's barn was burned. 2. That it was done by one or both of the defendants on trial. 3. That it was done maliciously; and 4. That it was of the value of 550. Mal ice in law, does not necessarily imply ill will. Where an unlawful act has been done, purposely and without sufficient ex cuse, it is malicious. If, therefore, you should find the barn was burned by the defendants, or either, intentionally and without justification, it was maliciously done, as charged in the indictment. Malice may also he express that is, the evidence may show actual ill will, or a wanton desire to injure. In this connec tion, therefore, you should consider the testimony tending to show the circum stances under which the burning was done, (if it were done) the character of the prop erty destroyed, the effort to increase the damage by driving live stock into the barn, or by fastening it in, (if this were done), together with the evidence of previ ous difficulties between the defendants, or either, and Bell, or of threats or ex pressions of hostility toward him, as well for the purpose of determining the question of malice, as to enable you to say whether there was a motive or inducement on the part of the defendants, or either, to per petrate the act. And here it is my duty to say to you, that the testimony as to the threats or declarations made by Dave Lawson or Dave Rhoades, or either, at the Lawson trial, should not be considered by you in this case, unless -'on find they were made with the knowledge and consent of the de fendants, or either, or made in their hear ing, and under such circumstances as to call upon them to dissent : and if so made as to one only, it is to be considered by you as against that one alone. And in this connection, I remind you, that you hould receive with caution and weigh carefully, evidence of verbal admissions or declarations of either the defendants or others. This evidence, consisting as it does in the mere repetition of oral statements, is sub ject to much imperfection aud mistake. iiieease wmi wuicii toe iiues, uv unintentionally altering a few words or expressions, may give the statement an entirely differ ent meaning from what was said, requires this care at your hands. ihe testimony of an accomplice is also to be received cautiously and carefully scrutinized, and the law authorizes me to say that you should not convict upon such testimony, unless it is corroborated by oth er evidence in some of its material parts. here two or more tersons are proved to have been associated together for an il legal purpose, an act or declaration ot one of such associates, in furtherance of the common objects, while engaged in the prosecution ot the general design, is com petent evidence against his associates, pro vided the act or declaration be such as to implicate them in the matter, and provid ed the act or declaration so accompanies the execution of the criminal intent as to become a part of the res qestor, or in and of itself tended to further the execution of the common criminal intent. Therefore, before you can use the acts or declarations of either of these defend ants. as evidence against the other, or of either of those jointly charged with them, against them, or either of them, you must be satisfied that they were combined together for the purpose of burning Bell's barn, and that such act was done or declaration made during the existence of such combination and in furtherance of its objects ; unless the act was done, or declaration made, with the consent of the personsought to be affected thereby, or in his presence, and under such circumstances as to make him respon sible therefor. The testiomonv of Marv Ann West, (wife of Marion West) is competent only ia favor of James C. West. She is not a com petent witness under the law, either for or against her husband, and her evidence is to be considered bv you only in behalf of James C. West bv whom it was offered, and for whose benefit it was admitted. The question of the guilt of these de fendants, or either of them, is to be de termined by you from a consideration of the whole testimony. You .should consid er and weigh the evidence of the previous relations between them and Bell; the evi dence of previous intimacy and association between them and thosecharged with them; the evidence of their movements and where abouts on the night of the burning, and that day and the day before; together with all the other matters that may reflect upon the questions as to whether there were an unlawful combination to burn Hell's barn, and if so, between whom, and what part, if any, these defendants, or either, took in furtherance of it. All persons are principals in felony, who were personally. present at the time, or tak ing any part in the accomplishment or in stigation of the criminal purpose; and al so, all who, though not personally present, yet at the time ot the perpetration of the criminal act, are performing some part necessary to or in aid of its consummation. In order to convict the defendants, or eithrr, it is not necessary that you find that they, or either, actually applied the torch to the barn. If you should find that either were personally present at the time, taking any part in the accomplishment oriiistiga tion of the criminal purpose, or, if not per sonally present, yet at the time of the per petration of the criminal act, were perform ing some part necessary to or in aid of its consummation, then he was a principal of fender, and guilty as charged. But the burden of showing this rests upon the State, and it is not incumbent on either of ! the defendants to show that he was not pres- j when the barn was burned or that he was not peforming some part elsewhere in aid of it. The ovidonce oCercd by the dc'onJjuts to prove that they were elsewhere at the time i -t i . i v M the barn is charged to have been burned, is no admission of the body of the crime; nor does the failure to prove the alibi it it have failed) necessarily afford any pre sumption that either was present at the time and place when and where the crime is alleged to have been committed. This defense is an admission of nothing charged in the indictment and denied bv the pi of "not guilty;" but the evidence oticred in support of it may nevertheless be consider ed by you as otherwise affecting the case, than in its bearing upon the particular question of the alibi. As I have told you, gentlemen, neither of these defendants can be lawfully con victed unless the evidence establishes his guilt beyond a reasoable doubt. What then is a reasonable doubt? A verdict of guilty can never be return ed without convincing evidence. The law is too humane to demand aconviction while a rational doubt remains in the minds of a jury. The jury will be justified, and re quired, to consider a reasonable doubt as ex isting, if the material facts, without which guilt cannot he established, may be fairly reconciled with innocence. In human alla.rs, absolute certainty is not always attainable. From the nature of things reasonable certainty is all that can be attained on manv subjects. When a full and candid consideration of the evi dence produces a conviction of guilt and satisfies the mind to a reasonable cer tainty, a doubt not created by the testimo ny, but originated for the purpose of avoiding a disagreable verdict, is not a reasonable doubt, and should not control the juror's action. The jury must look to the evidence, and if that satisfies them of the defendant's guilt they must say so; hut if they are not fully satisfied, and find only that there are strong probabilities of guilt, the only safe course is to acquit. You are the sole judges of the credibili ty of the witnesses and of the worth of their testimony. In judging of the credibility of a witness, you should look to his intelli gence and means of information, reputa tion for truth, the consistency of his state ments made here with those shown to have been made elsewhere, personal feeling or personal interest, and all other considera tions which may in any way affect the worth of his testimony; and if you believe any witness has knowingly sworn falsely in any material particular, you are at lib erty to reject the whole testimony of such witness, or to give credit to such portions as you may believe reliable. In conclusion, then, gentlemen, take this case, and, bearing in mind the rules of law I have indicated for your guidance, decide it according to your honest convitions from the evidence, uninfluenced by any outside feeling or considerations, and after such full and fair consideration of the whole testimony as the importance of the case, both to the State of Ohio and the defend ants, demands at your hands, and when you have done this you will the true de liverance make which vou have sworn to do. The jury retired at ten minutes before 7 o'clock. In a short time they were taken to supper, after which they returned to the jury-room, where they remained until after 1 o'clock A. M., when they were taken to the hotel and permitted to retire. At 8 o'clock Friday morning the Court House bell rang, and soon the court-room was crowded with spectators, anxious to hear the verdict, as it was understood that the jury hail agreed. It proved to he guil ty, as charged in the indictment, and the defendants, James C. and Marion Westj were immediately remanded to the custo dy of the Sheriff, and were soon lodged safely in jail . They seemed to take the matter very coolly, and not much sympa thy was expressed for them. Exceptions to some of the rulings of the Court have been filed by defendants'counsel, and a motion made for a new trial. The penalty for arson is confinement in the Penitentiary for not more than tweniy years, at the discretion of the Court. There are eight more of the alleged barn burners under indictment, but none of them will be tried at this term. Their bonds will have to be renewed, however, or they will be remanded to jail. We are inform ed by their counsel that a severance will be claimed in each case, which will necessi tate eight more trials, and we are likely to have the barnburners in our Court for two or three years to come, unless they plead guilty, by doing which they might get off with a lighter punishment, and save the county a great expense. The verdict was not unexpected, and we think the general opinion of the public is that it was fully justified by the evidence. Messrs. Collins & Irwin, the defendants' counsel, defended their clients ably. They showed great skill in preparing their case, and made an exceedingly strong fight. The general opinion is that a new trial will not be granted, as the expense to the county has already been enormous, and it is be lieved another trial would result in a sim ilar verdict. THE BINGAMAN-GASKIN SHOOTING CASE. at the pair of desperadoes, of whom they h;l(j heard so much. Tin- aisles and win ent d crowd, d. au l ev.rv m ailable inch of staiuliuii-roo.n was occupied, and it v:ls with reat difficulty that the 'ihcri.1! Friday of last week, Feb. 7th, was the day set for the hearing of the motion for a new trial in the Bingaman-Gaskin shoot ing case, before Judge Minshall, who pre sided at the trial. Contrary to the ex pectations of many, Jack Eingaman was promptly on hand. Judge Minshall ar rived on the morning train, and immedi ately after dinner the argument on the motion was opened by Mr. Ulric Sloane, counsel for Eingaman. As we understand it, Mr. Sloane claimed a new trial principally on the ground that the Judge's charge to the jury was erron eous, inasmuch as it did not recognize the right of Bingaman to defend himself against his two opponents, Dr. Gaskin and Henry White, who, Mr. Sloane claimed, were acting in concert in provoking a quar rel with Jack. He also claimed an irreg ularity in the drawing of the jury. Mr. Sloane presented his case in an argument lasting nearly an hour. He was followed by Prosecuting Attorney Dumenil for the State, in opposition to the motion for a new trial. Mr. D. was suffering from the wound in his hip, and was unable to make much of an argument. Gov. Hart, who assisted in the prosecution, was not present, but the result showed that he was not needed, as Judge Minshall overruled the motion for a new trial, and sentenced the prisoner to one year in the Penitentiary at hard labor and to pay the costs of prosecu tion, this being the lightest sentence that could be imposed. Bingaman was remand ed to jail, and the case will be taken to the Supreme Court on a writ of error. It will not be decided, however, until Jack is in the Penitentiary, and if a new trial is not granted, be will have commenced serving out his sentence. Bingaman showed his honor and man hood by not running away, as he ould easily have done, his relatives being wealthy, and they would cheerfully have paid the forfeited bail bond. He seems to have made up his mind m face the music like a man, for which he deserves credit. Many will no doubt think, the sentence a light one, but when it is taken into consid eration that the shot was fired in the heat of passion, that Bingaman is quite young, with other extenuating circumsiaiHTS, which have been published in our columns, his punishment seems severe enough, and it is to be hoped it will m ike a better man of him. On Saturday nothing of interest trans pired, Court being in session but a short time. M'KIMIK AND "SEW YORK l it AKI.KV. " Monday morning the news spread through town that McKimie and "New York Charley" would bo arraigned, aud in a few minutes the court-room was crowd- ed with spectators, anxious to get a pcp j waseble to keep order. Shortly before -.-I--, .i . . t i . ten o'clock the prisoners were brought in to Court by Sheriff Newell and Deputy I3arrere,nnd had they not been under guard, they would not have been taken for pris oners, but quiet and peaceable citizens, They were not ironed; and McKimie was dressed in a neat black suit recently scut j to him from Chillicothe, and looked quite dandified. Tne prisoners were seated directly in front of the Judge's desk. McKimie was ordered to stand up, and the indictment found against him for burglary and larceny in entering Philip Roads' house at Rains boro was read to him, to which he plead ed guilty, and wasscntenced to tojire years in the Penitentiary at hard labor. The in dictment for the burglary of Redkey'g store in Rainsboro was then read, to which he also pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to three years ia the Penitentiary, making eight years in all. The indictment against him for shooting at jailor Newell with in tent to kill or wound, was nollicd, and McKimie had answered for his crimes committed iu Highland county. Chas. Howard, alias "New York Char ley," was next arraigned, and pleaded guilty to thc)burglary of Redkcy's store, for w hich he was sentenced to four years in Pen iten titary at hard labor, and to pay the costs of prosecution. The prisoners took their sentence coolly and said nothing, and the general opinion is that they got olT with a light punishment. The entire proceedings occupied but a few moments, and the trial of the notori ous Bob McKimie, which has so agitated the citizens of Highland county, was over. McKimie and Charley are both indicted in Ross county fur the burglary of Pep ple's store at Bainbridge, to which they have agreed to plead guilty, and there is an understanning that McKimie will get two years and Charley one, making ten years for the former and five for the latter. Sheriff Newell will start next. Tuesday for Columbus with six prisoners already convicted, and probably one or two more. He will stop at Chillicothe, and let Mc Kimie and Charley receive their sentences from the Ross county Court, but like county will not get a chance at McKimie unless tthe authorities take him out of the Penitentiary. If this is done, he will probably get ten years for the Eubanks rob bery, which will make twenty years im prisonment, and McKimie will be a gray headed old man before he serves out his time. He no doubt acted shrewdly in consent ing to plead guilty and save the county the expense of a trial, as he thus secured a lighter sentence. . WHISKEY CASES. The next ca.-e called was that of the State vs. Clark Wright, indicted for sell ing liquor to be drank on the premises, to James Hoi n:es, on the Gth of September last. Wright pleaded his own case, and swore that the defendant got the liquor in a peppermint bottle and did not drink it on the premises. Holmes swore that he purchased whisky by the drink on that day, and the case was given to the jury without argument. In twenty minutes they returned with a verdict of gnilty as charged in the indictment, and Wright was sentenced to pay a fine of $10 and costs of prosecution. . The case of the State vs. Jacob Uhrig was next called, charged with selling liquor to be drank where sold. There were four indictments against him, and by advice of his counsel, Mr. Ilarnian, he pleaded guilty to each, and was sentenced to pay a fi ne of J 40 and the costs of prosecu tion. This was Mr. Uhrig's first appear ance in our Court, as he has never before been charged with selling liqlior illegally, which fact was taken into consideration in 'he sentence. ED. JONES. Was arraigned this morning, (Tuesday) and pleaded guilty to the burglary of the Patron's Supply House, on the 1-lth. of November last, for which he was sentenced to one year in the Peniten tiary at hard labor, and to pay the costs of prosecution. Jones is only 10 years old, and this fact, together with the critical condition of his mother, was taken into consideration by the Court. THE GRINDSTONE TRIAL The case of the State vs. David Lawson, charged with stealing a grindstone in Brushcreek tp., something over a year ago, was next called, and the trial was contin ued until next term, the defendant giving bond in the sum of 51,000. SAM CHANEY'S WHISKY CASES. Are in progress as we go to press. He is defended by Mr. Kirby Smith, and there are several indictments against him, Jim Holmes being the prosecuting witness in each case. Mr. Collins withdrew his motion for a new trial in David Lawson's asault case, and the Court fined him Charles Slusser, jointly indicted with F-d. , Jones, for the Grange Supply House bur glary, was discharged on motion of his at torney, Mr. Collins, and with the consent of tha Pros.

But Is Battered in the Face with a Stick of Wood. And Leaves in Hurry with a Pretty Sore Head. Jlrs. Michael Devirt and her two little children live ia a rented room over the Patron's Snpply House, facing on West street, her husbaud beinj temporarily absent in the West on business. Sfce moved here from below Belfast about a month siuce, aud supports herself and chi.dren by taking in sewing. A family named feetty have also had rooms iu the bnildiu, but they recently moved out and she is left aione. iter brother, Charley Gray, had been stajiugwith her fur a few days past, but on Wednesday of last 'eek he went into the cuRiitr7 on business, to be gene several dye. Between S and 9 o'eioc's that evening Mrs. Devitt heard some one knocking at the lower hail door iu the rear of ihe buildiL, by which her apart ments are reached, and going to 'he door ia her nigiit-clotbes she asked who was there. There ply was, "your brother Charley." She at once opened the door, but instead of Beeing her brother she stood face to face with a dapper-lookiLg young man, w l.o bid her good evening, and said he wished to come np stairs, .he told him site was aloue aud he could not enter, but he persist ed, and finally offered to make her a handsome present if he was permitted to come np. Mrs. Devitt told him if he had any bnsiness he could call the next day, but no man coaid enter her apartments after night when she was alone. He still persisted in attempting to enter, and seeinff he was determined she seized a stick of stove wood and struck him a heavy blow in the face. This aroused his ire, aud gathering up missiles in the shape of sticks of wood and stones, he com menced a bombardment of the door, one of the sticks striking her on the arm. l.rs. Devitt's voice here came to her rescue, and she screamed "murder," with scch eflect that the fellow took to his heels, and has not since been heard from. The above statement was given by Mrs. Devitt to a News reporter Monday afternoon, and with tears streaming down her cheeks the assured ns that she never gave anyone canse for supposing her to be a bad woman. She is a blond of about tweuly-flve and quite prepossesing in appearance, besides having very good manners, and as far as we can learn, bears a good character. Mr. Copes informs ns that her credit is good at the Patrons' Supply House, and she always payB her bills. Mrs. Devitt describes the young miuf as wearing no beard, and being very well dressed. He was probably some aristocratic (?) yonng rke, who had spotted his prey and eipected her to fail an easy victim, but in this he was greatly mistaken as Mrs. D. proved herself equal to the emergency. If the affair had been promptly reported to the po lice, they might have discovered who he was by the marks she gave him, but as it was not, he was lucky enough to escape the mortification of an exposure. Mr. Keeler, who was plastering in the builuiug, says a young man came up and took a survey of the premises Wednesday alt ecnooo, but he can't remember who he was. He is certain, however, that he belonged in town, and says hv.as well dressed. He was no donbt getting the lay of tho land. We only regret that we are unable to give his name, as a young reprobate w ho would go to an un protected woman's house arter nightnd insult her and then when he is foiled in his object, show his bravely by pelting ber with clubs and stones, ought to be shown up to the public. He had bet ter be a little more careful ic the f ctnre, or he may get himself into seiions trouble. Stands Alone. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is free from all substancea detrimental to health.
