A Stolen Horse. , Monroe Bryant, a colored man living one mile west of Samantha, had a horse itolea from his stable last Sunday night, and it is supposed the thief passed through this place, riding the animal, at 1 o'clock Monday morning, going south on the Rip ley pike. The horse was a dark bay or brown, eight years old, and blind in the right eye. The night police saw the horse and iU rider pass through town, but as they knew nothing of the theft they of course made no arrest. At this writing, Monday evening, nothing has been heard from the animal, although Mr. Bryant and a neighbor are in pursuit. Two Good Runners. Harry Mason made a trip to" London, Madison county, O , last week, and pur chased two good running horses, of W. A. Dunn, proprietor of the Oak Forest Stud Firm.

"Marg irct Trimble" is a four-year-old sorrel mare, and waa purchased for $70, She was sired by 'Tlowman' and' be by imported "Bonnie Scotland," dam- 'Trai ls. " Both animals are good ones, and Mr. Mason will get all ont of them there is in them, and we may have an opportunity of seeing them go at the Fair or June races. Garrett—Browning. On Wednesday evening, April 30. Mr. O. N. Garrett, of Cameron, Mo., son of Dr. J. P. Garrett, of Rainsboro, was married to Miss Mary O. Browning, of this county, daughter, ol John Browning, Esq.- The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride's parents in Rainsboro, Rev. J. F. Loyd.Tresidentof the Hillsboro Fe male College, officiating. After spending a few days with relatives in this county, the young couple left on Monday of last week for Cameron, Mo., where they will make their home. Mr. Garrett is engaged in tbe drug business in the West, having an es-' tablishmcnt of hisown, and has every pros-. pct of a successful business career. We wL-tthe wedded pair-all ihe happiness that this life affords.' : '; C j ' Alleged Attempt at Suicide. It' was reported on the streets this morn ing jfTuesdayT, that Rev. G. W. Jackson, a coloTed Wesleyan preacher, who has re cently bad a charge at Leesburg, and who lives north of town, in the cemetery settle ment, suicide Monday night taking morphine. A News reporter hunt ed up the facts, and found Dr. B. F. Holmes, who was called to see Mr. Jack son,' who said he saw no symptoms of mor-. phine, but that he could not find ont what he hadtaken. He is lying quite sick, but Dr. Holmes thinks there is no danger of his dying. - It is said, however ,-that he has threatened to take his life several limes recently, and that domestic troubles are weighing on his mind. He will get to his long home soon enough, we presume, without the aid of morphine or anything else. New Arms for the Scott Dragoons. , Capt Mullenix, of the Scott Dragoons, went to Cincinnati last week to see about getting new arms and accouterments for his company, which arrived on Friday, consisting of sabers, pistols, belts and cart ridge boxes, of the latest and best pat terns. -He did not succeed in getting car bines, and the company will have to use the old ones for the present. The bell are white leather, and are the best milita tary belt we have ever seen. The pistols are about the size of a howitzer, and we would rather face a jack-ass battery than to stand up before one of them. The sa bers are fine, and are a great improvement over the old-fashioned ones the company were formerly obliged to use. Capt. Mullenix is always on the alert, looking after the interests of his company, and if there is anything coming to themj he is sure to get it. The Street Sprinklers. Commenced operations Monday morning, but owing to the fact that the supply pipes were too small, they did not do very ef fective work until near noon. Many were disappointed, but the sprinklers are both to be improved, and Mr. Tucker feels con fident that he can keep the dust down, after the streets are once thoroughly wet. The tank sunk to supply water, contained as much Monday night as -it did -in the morning when they commenced hauling, and everything at present looks favorable for success. Although the streets are not yet free from dust, it is a great improve ment over no sprinklers at all, and if we are ever blessed with a heavy rain it will be no trouble to keep the dust down after wards. The sides of the sprinklers are crowded with the cards of our business men, and they attracted almost as much attention Monday as a circus wagon. Monthly Report of Pleasant School.

THE MURPHY ANNIVERSARY. Pat. McGroarty, Esq. and Col. Loudon of Georgetown, to be Present. Let the Friends of Temperance Turn Out and Make the Anniversary a Success. Two years ago next Thursday night the Murphy movement was inaugurated in Hillfboro, which has been of more practical benefit to our citizens than any re formatory movement they have engaged in for years. Everybody remembers the rousing meeting that was held in City Hall on the evening of May 15th, 1S77, and now that the second anniversary of the event is to be celebrated, let it be a suc cess, and let there be a proper public in terest manifested, which is all that ia needed. For several weeks past the friends of the cause have been at work, and the pro gramme, as published in last week's News, will be carried out. The day meetings will commence in City Hall at 9 o'clock A. M. and continue until 4 o'clock P. M., two leaders having been appointed for each hour, as stated last week. At 4 o'clock the Temperance Cadets, under com mand of Capt. Cooper, will make a public parade, and at 7 o'clock a GRAKO MASS MEETING will be held, to which everybody is cor dially invited. The Committee on Speak ers have handed us the following postal card from Col. Pat. McGroarty, of George town: Georgetown, O., May 10, 1879. II. S. Doogett, Esq.: Dear Sir Your kind invitation was received in due time, but have not been able to say before to-day whether it would be possible for me to ac cept it. Do not disturb any arrangements yon may have made on my account, for it will be an equal pleasure to me to partici pate with you as one of the people. Col Loudon and I will be with you on the 15th, but we cannot reach Hillslioro until tne afternoon. It you can utilize us, or either of us at the night meeting, we will be at your service. Truly yours, p. McGroarty, Col. McGroarty is a reformed man, and a leading memler of the Georgetown bar. He is an able and eloquent speaker, and our people should not fail to hear him. It is not necessary for us to introduce Col Loudon, as he is well and favorably known to our citizens. Remember the day meetings and don't put off attending until night, or the Hall may be so crowded that you can't get in Let the anniversary be a memorable day in our county's history, and one that we may feel proud of. ... . A Card From J. Q. Price. Mr. Jujitor: Having noticed a piece in the News of May 1st, abont the colored people of Penn Tp. of which I am one, and don't feel as one that is guilty, I take this opportnnitv to answer it. You will oblige by publishing the following : . We, as voters (colored) of Paiut Tp. arc being waked np to a sense of our own duty.' "We ,re and profess to be Republi cans, but never have, nor never tlisdl, sus tain a corrupt candidate offered by cither party. We want men of principle and true patriotism to fill our offices, and if snch men are offered we will vote for them, let them be of whatever politics they may be. Now, would a true, honest hearted Republican ask more of ns ? We have not, nor will not go back on the Republican rarty, but if they offer men that are enemies to the colored Re publicans, do yon think we should sustain our enemies, even if they are of the same party ? I would just say to such men, if yon intend to be candidates, keep your mouths shut if you don't like the colored people, for they are watching yon. Not only this, try to live as you should live, respect every body, let them be of what ever color they may be. God made us all. Respect the colored man. He has made great improvement since imported from his native country, Africa, and ex changed savage for civilized life. Though shabby sheep are among us, as is the case with all nations, yet some of ns are trying to live a life which will be an honor to our name when we are eone. Very truly yours, A Card From J. Q. Price. JOHN Q. PRICE . The Temperance Cadets' Entertainment. . . . ment At City Hallj Monday evening, was at tended by about 400 persona, who were en tertained by recitations, dialogues, songs, an exhibition drill by the Cadets. The children did Tery- well, considering they had had but little training, but scarcely any of them spoke loud enough, ! and it was almost impossible to under stand what was said at the back of the Hall. The most interesting performance i of the evening was the 'Primitive Spin-1 ning Bee" at the conclusion, participated in by the following ladies :- Aunt Polly Woodrow, aged 94, Mrs. Rachel Chapman, aged" 82, Mrs. E. J. Thompson, aged 62, and Mrs. H. S. For- aker, aged 59. The total ages of the four ladies is 297 years, and their average age is 741 years. "Aunt Polly" was engaged in carding wool, with two- old-fashioned carders, while Mrs.; Thompson presided at one spinning wheel, spinning wool, and Mrs. Foraker at the other, spinning flax. Mrs. Chapman, assisted by- Misses May Brid-, well, Ella Holmes, Marie Hill and Minnie Harsha, was engaged in picking wool, while Misses Lida Patterson and Sallie Tucker were engaged iq reeling and spin ning. The scene was pronounced an excellent and life-like representation of a "spinning bee" of the olden times, by people old enough to remember such scenes, and elicited hearty applause from the audience. The Committee in charge of the enter tainment have handed us the following statement of the receipts, and wish us to return their hearty thanks for the very liberal ; Gross receipts $36 00 Expenses 1 50 Net receipts. ..31 50 Railroad Matters. Ripley is getting tired of waiting on Georgetown to raise her stock for the Co lumbus & Maysville Railway, aid the Times of last week contained a card from Messrs. Baird and Leggett, Directors of the road, intimating that the road would be run from Ripley through Russellville to Sardinia, if the Georgetown people do not hurry up. The Times says that Col. Picard has already been engaged to make the survey, and it really looks as if they meant business. It would be a nice idea for Ripley to get a railroad, and leave Georgetown, the county seat,, out in the cold, wouldn't it? At last accounts Georgetown had about tt,000 of her quota of $ 6,000, raised, and the Legislature has just passed a special act, by which the Cor poration may levy a tax and raise $ 10,000 for railroad purposes. Georgetown had better "stir her stumps'' if she don't want to get left. " ' Headsche, whether arising from indiges tion or Nervousness, thoroughly unfits any one for attention to business or any other active effort. Dr. Bull's Baltimore Pills always cure this distressing disorder, giv ing prompt f dlisf ats the first dose. CITY COUNCIL. THREE MEETINGS IN ONE WEEK.

The Grsnd Jury was in session five days last week, finishing np their business Sat urday afternoon. They examined 103 witnesses in 23 cases, and found indict ments as follows: John Link, murder in the second de gree for killing Samuel Pavey, and man slaughter for killing Taylor Pavey. Ezekiel Ruse, murder in the second de gree, for killing S. C. Swarti. Robert Frazier, (colored) shooting with intent to kill and wonnd, in the Price's school house fight. Chas. Evans, (colored) catting with in tent to kill and wound, in the same dis turbance. Chas. Miller, Henry Snyder, Newton Caudy, Robert Newman and Fountain Peyton, were all indicted for assault and battery, in connection with the same af fair. A. number of other indictments were found, but as the parties are not yet under arrest, the ends of justice might be defeated by publishing their names. "Stuffle" John Roads, who confessed to burning John Bell's barn, was not indicted, although his case was thoroughly investi gated, and he was released from jail. So ends that farce. Chas. Rector, of Penn tp., who has been in jail for three months, charged with stealing meat from his step-father, Elias Thompson, was also released, not being in dicted. . The Grand Jury visited th jail and found it well kept, but condemned the ven tilation and construction, and recommend ed the Commissioners to build a new one. a A Mean Slur. The following item in the nillsboro Cor respondence of the Cincinnati Gazette of the 1st inst. has caused considerable indignation among Republicans here, and we have heard a number of them pro nounce it a mean and unjustifiable slur upon a worthy young Republican : A good candidate for Prosecuting Attor ney is wanted in this county on the Re publican side. One with a clean record and who has no sidebar complications, could make the riffle next fall without doubt. It is well known that Mr. Cyrus Newby, who was the Republican candidate two years ago, and who came within a few votes of being elected, has declared his intention to be a candidate again this fall, and as he is about the only candidate talked of the slur in the above extract was undoubtedly meant for him. We don't know what is meant by the allusion to a Republican with "a clean record," as we have never heard anything whatever against Mr. Newby's record. We know him to be a young man of ability, and should he be the nominee of the Convention, as he probably will be, we predict that he will be elected by a good majority. He is one of our most promising young lawyers, and we have no doubt he will make an efficient Prosecutor.

On Monday morning John Link, who killed the Paveys, and Ezekiel Ruse, who killed his brother-in-law Swartz, were brought into Court, the former to have bis bond fixed, and the latter to have coun sel assigned to him. Link appeard cheer ful and in good spirits, but Ruse was down cast, and seemed to feel very badly. Messrs. Sloane & Hough were assigned as counsel, and he was returned to jail. Link's bond was fixed at $3,000 in one case, and $1,000 in the other, which was furnished by the following sureties and was released from jail : Chas. Vanpelt, Ed. Cox, Taylor Evans, Manlove Adams and Chas. Turner, all of Fairfield township. Counsel in both cases have expressed a willingness to have the case tried this term, but the State has not time to prepare for trial, and they will probably go over until next term. THE BARNBURNERS' CASE. Or, the State vs. Simon Murphin, is set for next Monday werk. The motion for a change of venue will probably not be pushed, and the trial will come off at this term. The probabilities are that a jury will be impaaneled the latter part of next week, and evrything got in readiness to commence business on the following Mon day morning. The trial will occupy from week to ten days. The Court room has been cleaned up and thoroughly renovated, and it is now al most a pleasure to visit it. It is rumored that "Stuflle" John Roads will be put on the witness stand, in the Murphin case, and will swear he burned the barn, but whether the jury will believe him or not is another question. John Link left town Monday afternoon for Leesburg. The News has been complimented sever al times for its correct and impartial re port of the Leesburg tragedy. We shall be careful to say nothing that might tend to prejudice the public mind for or aga:nt either side. Clerk J. M. Hnghey is as accommodat ing as ever, and is always readv to do any one a favor.

The contract for Evans & Ferris's new bank building was let to-day(Tuesday) to Utman, Jeans & Co., and also the contract of Mr. Sayler'a building adjoining, which will be finished just like the bank. The building will be two stories high, with a Mansard, and flat corner. Work will be commenced at once, and the building is to becompleted by the first of October. As onr paper is just going to press, it is impossi ble to give further particulars this week, bat we will give a more detailed de scription of the building in a future issue. The Edisbuboh Kevibw, for April, has very interesting artiole on the "Electric Light." Another very important paper is entitled "Gold, and its Effects on Trade," which shows how the discovery of the gold mines, in connection with th wonderful inventions of the last 30 years, stimulated material prosperity. The observations on the snpply of money, and the relations of gold snd silver, deserve close attention.

Home Correspondence. PRICETOWN. Very dry. Farmers have a hard time fetting the ground In order for planting, he larger portion have not yet planted. Considerable complaint of seed corn not coming up, but we would say, don t be scarea oetore you are hurt. Rev. W. D. Moore, of New Vienna, tireached according to previous notice, 'riday night, Saturday night and Sunday, at which time the funeral discourse of sis ter Colvin was preached. He also preached here Sunday night, and preached last week in En ford. Mr. -Moore has been employed by his brethren to preach here the first Sunday in each month for one vear. Rev. J. B. Fa ris challenged Mr. Moore to discuss the following proposition: "Do the Holy Scriptures teach the resurrec tion of the mortal body?" Faris affirms. Moore denies. The challenge being ac cepted, the discussion will take place on Friday and Saturday, May 30th and 31st. As the time is drawing near when the names of candidates should be brought forward, allow me to suggest the name of G. W. Martin, of Clay tp., as a suitable candidate for Representative. The 'Squire is a sound Republican, and a popular man. Our Board of Education have decided to put new seats in all our school houses. A good move. Mr. Gregory, of Chicago, was here, with a nice-looking cast-iron seat. Where is Jeff Ilildebrand, while 1 am ON THE WING. MOURYTOWN. We know reporting surprise parties is ont of order, but we must be permitted to tell how we were "taken in and done for." To say we were surprised, don't half ex press it. Onr birthday anniversary was April 30th, and being suspicions that some one might slip np on ns, as there had been several sarprise parties in the neigh borhood, We kept a keen look-out ,and np to noon had not seen or heard anything what ever. After dinner, and finishing a cake our good wife had made for the occasion, all the while keeping a close watch on the gate for callers, we concluded we weren't mnch of a fellow any way, and that every body was too busy to waste time on us. So we got ready and went to Tsylorsville after seed com, never dreaming that there were surprise suppert as well as dinners. We got onr corn and returned as far as Monrytown. Tbere we met onr old friend Monry, who said he was looking for ns and that he wanted ns to do some writing for him : So we hurried on home, as it was getting near supper time, and on driv ing into the barn yard we found it full of buggies -nd wagons, the door-yard and house full of people, and a big table spread under tbe spple tree in the yard, loaded down with good things. Then some half dozen big fellows just lifted us out of the buggy, said they wanted their supper, took qs in and introduced us to our wife, and the multitude. Jasf'phancy my phee links.

Diehl and Williams fur nished some hne instrumental music, while Dr. McLain, John iunk and H. a. Gray did the speechifying. I tell yon 'twas a big time, and we felt good.

A mistake in the News announcement in regard to time, hindered a nam be r from hearing Mr. Barber's recent lecture here, and we suggest a repetition soon at night, while the moon is bngnt. Of tbe eloquence of Rev. Bolton's ad dress at the M. E. Church or of the sump- tuousnessol the snpper in the basement ol the Odd Fellows' Lodge (P. M.) we do not expatiate, (not being present) but guess that the whole was lovable. JOSEPHAW. LYNCHBURG. The Board of Education of Lynchbnrg Village School district have decided to en gage teachers for the coming school year, on Thursday, May 22d. Frank Stroup and Miss Rebecca Bishir were married at the M. E. parsonage on the 3d inst., Rev. 3. II. Middleton offi ciating. First stock sale for Lyncburg was held Friday, May 2d. Attendance fair. Rov ers present, Daniel Flock, Cincinnati, Htogden & Reynolds, Columbus, Morrow & Stanfortb, I lillsloro, and Routh & Nordy kc, New Vienna. Some six horses sold, and many others changed hands. This was our first stock sale, and was not generally known. Buyers stated that they would be here next sale day, being first Friday in June. QUILL. ia DODSONVILLE. Button-hole bouquets are ripe. "The orchard, the meadow, the deep tangled wild-wood," and all that sort of thing, make one feel like writing poetry, but we'll not this week. Rev. Mr. Weatherby, of the Baptist church, Hillsboro, preached at Allensburg on the 1st, and will preach there again on tbcloth, we believe. Brother "On the Wing," Dodson tp. was not so fortunate as Salem, for the "old fogies" carried the day and the result is, that the local directors are not compelled to pay more than $33 per month for teachers; we say compelled, for we know that in two districts, at least, the directors were willing and anxious to re-employ their teachers at living or at least renmitabU wages. The fact is, many of the directors know as little of what a school should be, or of practical school work, as a teacher who had spent his life in the school-room, would know of practical farming; and con sequently they fail to see that, eventually, "shyster" wages will secure "shyster" teach ers, and that good teachers will gradually drift away to localities where living wages are offered. Two more have gone to try the "sad re alities" of married life. Mr. Frank Stroup and Miss Annie Bishir concluded to henceforth "trot in double harness" and on the 3d had the necessary ceremony per formed. After their marriage they drove to Uncle Charles Stroup's, where "Aunt Lizzie" had in waiting an elegant and tempting supper. After supper the assem bled guests repaired to the parlor and spent the evening plea-tatilly, in singing, and in social chat. Tile bride received some nice presents from friends. During the evening they were favored with a musical (?) serenade. One of the terenaders left his musical instrument, which he can have by calling, &c. DODSON. TAYLORSVILLE. Weather very dry, cool and pleasant. Farmers generally waiting for warmer weather before commencing to plant corn. Nobody done planting in this vicinity yet, but George Fender, who finished planting the last of April. We hear concidcrable complaint of seed corn this year. Farmers would do well to try their corn before planting. The prosject for fruit is good, except peaches and cherries. The prospect for oak and beech mast is also p mising. Our enterprising carpenter and under taker, Wm. II. Ridings, is building a new barn for Mr. David Gram, about two miles east of this place.

Going North, at 12:52 P. M. and 7:43 P. M. The fare from here to Hillsboro and back is 70 cents, and to Sardinia and back, 40 cents. Farmers think this too much for the accommoda tion, and prefer going in their wagons. We think the price should be reduced till better accommodations are furnished. We learn that we are to have another new doctor, Dr. Charles Russ, from Hills boro. Our people are generally well pleased with our present physician, Dr. L. C. Laycock. lie is a young man well worthy of patronage. The board of education have lowered the wages of teachers in this township. This is'economy (?) in the wrong direction.

Editor News : A certain article which appeared in the News some time since, re minded me of Ihe story of Hercules ami a certain clas of men in Africa. You wiil find the story told very amusingly in Haw thorne's "Tanglewood Tales." 1 leave the application for my readers to make. if the writer of the article to which I re fer, should succeed in annihilating "Dar win, Huxley & Co." I shall say nothing about it, either pro or con, but shall we pass over in silence the gentleman's article Sound f "An emanation of substantial corpus cles" is wand when yon jnimminee it, "my dear Flora;" indeed it has far more sound in it than tense. If I understand the writer, he would ex press himself, if he could, in common lan guage, thus: "Sound is prodwed by fnwll particle oj matter driven off by the sounding budy.- Now, when a speaker addresses an audi ence, minute pai tic es of his organs of speech are wrenched off by some process, and sh4 at his hearers in all directions, with almost the velocity of a rille-balll This is not absurd, however. The little insect too, of which he speaks, drives particles of its nwn body to the distance of a mile in all directions! In his calculation he supposes the insect to be inclosed in a solid (I presume this, as according to his calculation each cubic foot must weigh about 31 pounds) globe of tympanic membranes, two miles in diame ter, and then exjects thr advocates of the Wave Theory to admit ihat the insect can vibrate the entire mass "once in, once out, 400 times a second!" Of course this bears the stamp of a sin cere, careful scientist's calculation, and has nothing abmrd in it, except the absur dity that all this mass would le set in mo tion, and if the advocates of the Wave Theory doot maintain that this is pos sible, why their theory is false, (J. E D. Any advocate of the Wave Theory of Sound would say, the fact that the insect can be heard at the distance being granted, that any one tympanic membrane situ ated anywhere within this globe, would vi brate, or that any number, not so great as to interfere wiih the sound waves, would vibrate. But when tlicy are placed so near each other as to interfere wilh the waves of sound, the insect could not he heard at the distance of a mile, and the more compactly they are placed the les the distance to which it can be heard. Let us tt st the reasonablenessof this gen tleman s theory, or the soundness ot his logic, whichever he pleases to call it, by applying both to the sound made by the "locust," He would put it thus: The in sect inclosed in thesolid glebe, two miles in diameter, drireA thmmjh tliix nuts (as tounding force! I an infinite numbiT of "siih stanli:il corpuscles" from its own body, in an infinite number of directions; yet this not so "aburd" as the theory that sup poses that the particles if si rare very elas tic, and transmit their enenry in all di rections wilh very little diminution of force. If the gentleman fails in some of his ex periments to get the same result that Tyn dall did, be should remember that U'ijiii ners, as a rule, make aunt failures in their experiuinu. A FAKULlt.
