During the heavy thunder storm of the Cth, Mr. Charles Schlier, who lived on the New Lexington and Sabina pike, about three miles from Sabina, was instantly kill ed by lightning. He was at the house of Mr. George Dun, a near neighbor, when the storm began, and his wife, who has always been afraid in a thunder storm, called him home. As soon as he reached the housse he ran up stairs to lower the window, when the bolt struck him. Mrs. Schlier was severely thoeked, but not seriously injured. During the same storm, the barn of Elijah Matthews, about three miles north east of New Vienna, was struck by light ning and consumed. Mr. Matthews lost three horses, 300 bushels wheat, &c. Loss about $2,000, insurance $700. Desperate Saloon Fight. About 9 o'clock last Saturday night, two colored men, named Jim Hardin and Joe Goings, met in the new saloon on North High street, owned by two brothers named Nash, and got into a row with one of the proprietors. No one was in the sa loon but the darkies and the Nash broth ers, and who was to blame for the difficul ty cannot be ascertained. Hardin was knocked down and terribly beaten about the face, and then thrown out on the pavement in an unconscious condition. Jim Nash is the one who did the beating, and it is reported that he knocked Hardin down with a beer bottle and then threw a beer keg on his face, while others say he struck him with a large mallet which is used for knocking the bungs out of kegs. The affair created considerable excitement and the police were on the scene iu five minutes, and cared for the wounded' man. The Nash brothers locked up the Baloon, and the colored men talked seriously of demolishing it, but were prevented by the police and the alarm of fire which was sounded about that time. Hardin is very j seriously injured, his jaw bone being brok en in several places and his head terribly bruised. Nash has jumped tho town, to avoid arrest. PERSONAL.

Mel). Mathews, Hillsboro has lost a man, who i perhaps moro than any other who ever j lived in this community, contributed by j his long and useful labors, to give our town the hih character it justly enjoys, as a center of education, morality, refine ment and culture. For nearly 40 years he was engaged in the noble work of edu cating young ladies in the higher branches of learning, and in those Christian graces which qualify them to adorn and bless so ciety. For this work he was eminently fitted by nature, and his labors were crowned with a great degree of success. Hundreds of ladies who were his pupils in the Oakland Female Seminary and the Hillsboro Female College, are now filling honorable positions in society and exercis ing an influence for good which is felt and recognized by all around them. Many of them are happy wives and mothers, who are training up their children for lives of usefulness, and practically apply ing the wholesome lessons they received from their beloved instructor. Others are pursuing the responsible calling of teach ers, and leaving their impress upon the youthful minds entrusted to their care. Thus, through the labors of those lie taught, bis inlluenee is being widened and extended, and even "though dead, he yet speaketh." Not only does Hillsboro owe him a debt of gratitude for his moral and educational inlluenee upon the community, but he also contributed greRtly to tho material pros perity of the towu, by the large numbers of pupils from abroad who were attracted here by his fame as a teacher. The money they brought and expended while receiv ing their education, contributed in no small degree to the business of the town. Mr. Mathews was a man of rare gentle ness of character, yet of unyielding firm ness iu what ho believed to be right. Modost and retiring in disposition, he mingled but little in general society, but devoted his whole energies faithfully and successfully to the work of instructing the minds and moulding the characters of the young ladies under his care. The last 30 years of bis Ufe were an al most constant struggle with ill health, and to judge from his bent form and feeble appearance, jew of his mends, at any time during that period, would have thought it possible for him to attain the ago of 75 years. That hiB life was thus prolorged, in spite of his arduous and un- reiaittiug labors, must be attributed chief ly to bis careful and regular habits. For more than 30 years paut, nntU con fined to his bed, he took daily and acou rate observations of the weather for the Smithsonian Institute, at Washington City, including rauge of thermometer and barometer, course of the winds and clouds, amount of rain and snow, Ac. io., and his records were regarded as the standard for this part of the country. The funeral servioes were held at the M. E. church, which was crowded, and the pastor, Rev. James Kendall, paid an eloquent tribute to the life aud character of the deceased. We are indebted to Mr. Kendall for the following sketoh, which be read at the close of his sermon : Rev. Joseph McDowell Mathews, D. D., eon of John and Sallie Mathews, was born in Augusta Co., Va., Dec. 8, 1804, and died ai his residence in Hillsboro, Ohio, Aug. 5, 1879. When he was 10 years old his parents moved to Ky., and settled on a lurm. Fortunately he was favored by Dr. Ijewis Marshall, brother of Chief Justice Mar shall, with the privileges of his private school or Academy, a school said to be very thorough in ils course of instruction. Here he acquired that decree of literarv culture which justified the Augusta Col lege in conferring on him the honorary de gree of "A. M." lie received the title of "D. D." from the Ohio University. He joined the M. E. church before he was 18 years of age, and began occasionally to exhort. Iu 1827 he began a seiiool, an Acadeiuv for bovs, in Hillsboro, Ohio, which lie Continued until 1S.S1, when he resigned his charge of the Academv and joined the Ohio Annual Conference, ills tirst charge was cliillicothe, Ulno, wnere he sjH'nt two pleasant and successful years. In 18.35 he was stationed in Cincinnati, Ohio, and during the winter of that vear his health failed. His colleagues in Cin cinnati were janies i. riuiev, joun Col lins, Dr. Thomas Sargent and Joseph AI. Trimble. Thomas A. Morris (afterward Bishop) was then P. E. of the Cincinnati District. Alter his health failed, he retired to a farm, where he spent nearly six years. Casting about to see iu what field he could accomplish most good for the Master, he chose the educational work, and iu 1839 opened the Oakland Female Seminary, where he remained successfully prosecut ing his work unlil lSoti, when lie took charge of the Hillsboro Female College. In 1800 he resigned the Presidency of the College, and look charge of the Je.-sa-mine Female College, Nicholasvilie, Ky. He ojiened his school iu Ky. with line prospects of success, but the war soon threw everything iuto such confusion that in 18').! he returned to Hillsboro and open ed a private boarding school. In 18i2 the 1 residency ot the Hillsboro Female College being made vacant by the resignation of Rev. David Copeland, A. M.. Dr. Mathews again accepted tho Presi dency of this Institution, where he re mained until September, 18 , when, ou account of failing health and feebleness, he retired to his home in the suburbs of Hillsboro, where, in the bosom of his fam ilv, who watched and cared for him with unwearied attention during the long months of prostration and feebleness, he closed his long and useful life, calmly and sweetly falling asleep in the arms of Jesus, like an infant in the arms of its mother. Dr. Mathews was married three times. October 28, 1823, he was married to Miss Eiiaabeth A. Barry, a daughter of Andrew Barrv. In March", 1852, he was called to part with this, the wife of his youth. In 1865 he was united in marriage with Mrs. Martha Sanders, sister ot Judge P. B. Swing. In 1S58 she died, leaving two children, a son, Joseph, who died in his 19th year, while attending Oberlin College, and Sallie, who survives and is the only living child. Dec. 25, 1859, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Mary B. Harnian, who survives, to mourn his loss and cher ish his sainted memory. Dr. Mathews has been long and favora bly known as one of the leading educators of Ohio, and especially iu the education of voung ladies, for which he seemed to pos sess a peculiar fitness, llecoinbined mild ness and firmness in a remarkable degree. To the young women under his care he was both an instructor and a father. He had a clear and well-stored mind, full of common sense and classic lore. He was gentlemanly in his manners, reserved, and vpt approachable. All who associated "with him respected and loved him. lie was free from piques and eccentricities, and throueh all the years of his life, as minister and teacher, he was blameless and without reproach. Willi a feeble constitution and broken n.in he seldom nreached, but when he did, all ears were open to catch the feeble utterances and even whispers which fell from bis lips. His clear views of God and truth, his rich stores of learning and wis dom all adorned anil beautified with a saint- ly life, made him a-power in tins com mniiitv. where he had lived so long and was known so well. He has not lived in vain. Ho bus pre nurod and sent out scores of voung women who have become centers of power iu their new homes, and in some instances he has "rmluated two generations, the mothers .,.! lii. ir daui:li! :rs. so that tils name is wide spread, alio will live through the coiuiiiir vuara. "Thouirh dead, he yet speakeih." Wlii e his own voice is bush el ind his lips silent in the stillness of death hundreds of living tongues, trained lv him do sneak ami tell of God s good ness aud bis power. Dr Mathews has set in operation causes which will continue to work for t iod and the church until tho reapers shall gather in the final harvest, when he can say, "hero am I, Lord, and those whom thou hast given me." There is a sublimity in such a life a life spent in preparing the heads and hearts of sisters and mothers to act well their parts in life's great drama. Hedied of cancer. Worn down with age and toil and care, he was assailed by a can cerous affection in the face, which developed gradually and steadily, and after a linger ing and protracted illness he closed his useful and beautiful lite, and passed up to join the many friends dear to his heart, iu that country where the inhabitants never say, "I am sick." His last sickness and death were in beau tiful harmony with his former life. In the bosom of his family, without much pain, in the full possession of his powers, cheered with the frequent visits of his friends, he gradually descended into the valley. It was with dillieulty he could be heard on account of debility, but he again and again expressed himself in the fullest assurance of hope. When be saw that this was to be his last illness, he gave all into the hands of God, laid hold of Christ, as the Paschal lamb, his only sacrifice, and God beard his pray ers, removed all darkness and doubt and fears, and he rested from that on like a babe in the arms of its mother. Calm and peaceful and ready, he only awaited the time of bis departure. During his last illness he frequently quoted our old familiar hymns, such as "O. if my Lord would come and meet, My soul would slivtch her winu's in haste, Kly fearlefls lliroiiyli Death's trim Kite, r-.or tear the terror us she passed." And that hymn of Charles Wesley, begin ning "Iu ae and feebleness extreme, he often quoted, as expressing his condi tion and his feelings. At the annual meeting of the Alumnio of the Hillsboro Female College, June 11, 1879, Dr. Mathewssenl, by President Ixiyd, the following message, which thrilled ail hearts : "May you have success in all good work, and help to contribute to the conversion of the world. Tell them Jesus support me during my sickness." The expressions that fell from bis lips were gems of beauty and of worth. We only need mention as specimens a few, spoken the last three or four weeks of his life. During one visit he said : "I am wonderfully sustained sky clear thank God !" Another visit: "A thousand ways has Providence to bring believers home." "Christ sustains my soul." "For six months there has not been a cloud to darken my sky, through the merits of Christ." Still later he spoke of Christ stilling the tempest, and quoted, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Among his last utterances was this, so ap propriate and beautiful: "Almost home 1" "Almost home 1" repeating it several times. "Life's fitful fever is over," and Dr. Math ews now rests at home. "riervant of Ood, well done! Thy tfiorioas warfare's past : The bsltle's fought, the racr is won, Aud thou art crowned at last." TRIBUTE OF RESPECT. Action of the Alumna of H. F. C. on the Death of Rev. J. McD. Matthews. The following action was taken by the Alumna; Association, of which the Rev. J. McD. Matthews was the founder, on the occasion of his death: HILLSBORO, O., Aug. 15, 1879. As the founder of our Alumna? organi zation, Rev. J. McD. Matthews D. D., has closed his earthly work and entered into rest, associatively, we give expression to our sense of loss at the severance of the relation between us. It is our conviction that in hischoice of vocation, as Instructor of Woman, he was divinely directed a work for which he was fitted by nature and earlv culture. Refined and scholarly in tastes: simple in habits, yet elevated in purpose; uniting a granite firmness in matters of principle with a gentleness of nature, which won alike the lu-ect and love of his pupils; possessing an aptness for the acquisition of truth in its manifold forms, combined with the somewhat rare gift of readily im parting to others in choice aud simple lan guage; hence his success as an educator. In one of the marvelously beautiful ca thedrals of the Old World, the architect Built his preat heart iuto the sculptured stone, And wilh him toiled tiis ctiildrcu, aud men lives Were huilded with his own." As filial love took tangible form in the im age of theMaster,chiseled by the deft fingers of his child, so we, the daughters of the AIumniD, may give fitting expression of our reverent affection to our beloved Teacher by incorporating into our daily living, the truth as imparted iu his teach ings and embodied in his life. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." MRS. JANE McD. SMITH, Chm'n. MRS. SARAH JANES, Sec'y. Memoir of Miss Mary Doggett. Mi.ss Mary Dikigltt, daughter of New ton and Mary Doggett, was born in Hills boro, Aug. 28, 1829, and died in Hillsboro, Aug. 2, 1879. Possessed of a mind well balanced, a conscience carefully cultivated, and an un selfish nature, with manners modest and unassuming, her character had a moral force that secured excellence iu her under takings. An orphan at the ago of sixteen, her home was for the most of her life with her brother, the late Washington Doggott, Esq. There are many who can speak of her ministrations in that home, and of her de votion to the children at one time moth erless. Since maturity her duties to the Church and 8. School have been an integral part of her life. For mauy years she was a S. S. teacher. In the prayer-meeting and in the class-room her seat was never will fully vacant. Her career as a teacher was marked by success. In the difficult art ot discipline lie was conspicuous. She had sympathy with the fresh young spirits with whom she was associated. Genial herself, and possessed of a fund of genuine humor, her intuitions were quick to distinguish between a lack of principle and the nat ural ebullitions of youthful feelings. She had many friends. Where she pro- fesssed friendship, bhe was true as steel. For more than three years she has suf fered from ill health and severe nervous prostration. While anxious to use every means for recovery, there has not been a time when she did not appreciate her risk, and for many months her prepara tions for death have been complete. Naturally reserved as to her feelings, she has always been reticent in regard to her religious experience. Her trust was in her Savior. With "no merit of good works to plead," said she, "I have tiled to do right, and shall be greatly disappointed if I miss heaven. I have lived for it." Though her nervous system was a com plete wreck, her mental faculties retained their vigor in a remarkable degree. Ten days before her death, in consequence of fever, delirium set in. This fact she com. prehended, and five days only before the end, with almost superhuman efi'ort, she compelled her wandering will to do her bidding, as he gave a few directions in regard to her affairs. From this time delirium increased and physical strength diminished. On Satur day, Aug. 2, she sank into a stnpor from which neither medical skill nor the tender miiiist rations ol friends were able to rouse her. At 1: 15 P. M. she quietly breathed her lat, aud the weary wheels of life were E. M. S. Tho invalid finds in ''Dr. Liudsey's Blood Searcher" nature's great ronto.-er. It is wonderful.

How they Enjoyed Themselves, and the Glory they Won. OFFICERS OF THE 13th REGIMENT, NAMES OF THE COMPANIES, &c. Camp Crumbs, Personal Points and Truant Tramps. Wilh the limited space we have at our command this week, we hardly fool like writing up the 13th Regiment encamp ment, for to do it full justice would re quire at least a half-du7.uu columns. But as we have not the space, we will do tho the best we can without any further apol ogies. The militia of this city, namely the 13th Regiment Baud, Noble Light Guard and Scott Dragoons, the latter independent of the regimout, boarded the 0:30 train last Thursday morning for Lnveland, where they arrived in advance of all the other companies, about 9 o'clock. The two Hillsboro companies marched immediate ly to camp and busied themselves for au hour in putting up their tents and get ting things ready for the week, when they iiiiirclicd to the depot and formed in line with the other companies, with the B ind aud Dragoons at tho bead of thu column, and the Noble Light Guards, the senior ronipnny of the Regiment, next. The column started on tho march about 10:30, and the display was a lino one. Five hundred bluo coats in column pre sent rather an imposing spectacle. After the column had uot out of the village and on the country roads, the command '"route step" was given, and old soldiers remarked that it was a life-like representation of a a regular army and called up old recollec tions, many of which weie painful, but were made bright by the thought that the nation had been haved by their patriotic efforts, although thousands of their com rades now sleep the sleep that knows no waking, aud their widows and orphans are scattered all over the land. The Regiment arrived at oamp about 11 o'clock aud the boys fell to work with a will in getting things in shape. The camp was situated about a mile southwest of Loveland, on the farm of Dr. Emery, in a beautiful grove of majestic oaks, whose spreading arms aud dense foliage furnished abundant shade. Adjoining the grove was a large meadow, to serve as a pa rade ground, whiob. was the best we have ever seen. It.waa large enough to accomodate an army of 10,000 meft, and as level as a floor. It was not until about 2 o'clock that the camp was cleared of baggage and put in proper order, when a guard was placed on duty, and the follow ing daily order of camp exercises was issu ed by Col. Denver : C a. m., reveille and roll-call; C:10, po lice duty; 0:30, sick call; 7, breakfast call; 8, squad drill; 9:30, guard mounting; 10:30, company drill ; 12 m., dinner and roll call, 1 p. m., First Sergeant's call; 2:30 bat tallion drill; 5, dress parade; C, sup per; 9, tattoo roll-call ; 9:30, taps. The following are the regimental offi cers: Colonel, J. W. Denver, Wilming ton; Lieutenant-Colonel, . F. J. Picaid, Hillsboro; Major, Lee Kendall, Ripley; Adjutant, David Howe, Morrow; Quarter nuister, H. F. Walker, Martinsville; Sur geon, J. L. Mounts, Morrow; Assistant Surgeon, M. S.

Boyd; First Lieutenant, H. Williams; Second Lieutenant, W. B. Tomlir.son. All the companies reported full turn outs with the exception of the Noble Guards, and an armed guard was sent back to Hillsboro on the afternoon train with instructions to arrest fifteen truants and bring them to camp. Nothing of special interest occurred until about 9 o'clock in the evening, when a heavy rain commenced falling, which continued throughout the night. This was not par ticularly pleasant to the men on guard, who began to realise what soldiering was. The boys in tho tents kept tolerably com fortable, but an occasional sigh could be heard from some delicate youth who was thinking of the comforts of home. Friday opened damp and disagreeable, the weather being very chilly and the sun obscured by clouds. Guard-mount was held in the morning, and company and squad drills, but battallion drill and dress parade in the evening were omitted on account of the rain, and such a rain as it was 1 The rain came down iu sheets, and the whole camp was flooded. The guards were kept on, and were drenched, and when they came in looked like water-rats. All their ideas of "fun" iu soldiering were drowned out of them, and they occupied the time while they were off duty in growling at Gen. Denver, the militia, the weather, and everything iu general. The day was truly "Blue Friday." Advocate Gen. Sam. Hunt visited the camp Friday morning and was escorted from the depot by the band and Dragoons, riding in an open carriage with Lieut. Col. Picard. The weather continued very unpleasant on Saturday, but battallion drill and dress parade were gone through, and were wit nessed by large crowds. The battallion drill afforded the first opportunity we had of see ing the regiment to advantage since last year, and the improvement is really as tonishing. Dressed in their regulation fatigue uniforms they look like regulars, and drill like regulars, and we can say without prejudice that the 13th is one of the best regiments in the State. Sunday the sun arose in a cloudless sky and after three days of rain and mud, the boys welcomed old Sol heartily. The camp was visited by fully 5,000 people during the day, excursion trains being run from almost eveiy place but Hillsboro. Battallion drill in the afternoo n was com manded by Lieut. Col. Picard, who han dled the regiment as if be was accostoincd to it. Dress parade was the best that had been held, and the day was the most nota blu of the week. On Monday the weather was agaiu pleas ant, and Adjutant Gen. Miley arrived and inspected and reviewed the regiment. He was escorted to the camp by companies A and D, under command of Col. Picard. The boys will break camp to-day (Tues day) and will return home no little profit ed by the strict discipline they were re quired to observe during the week. A month of such drilling would make the Statu National Guard almost equal to regulars, and wo would have but little need of a standing army. CAMP CRUMBS. The clerk of the Regiment reported 487 men present. The Scott dragoons were conceded to be the best drilled company in camp, and the Noble Guards the best in the Regiment, while Georgetown won the reputation of having the poorest company, and of rais ing a petty jealousy among the companies which was a disgrace to the Regiment. One of the tents in which the Morrow company was quartered bore the inscrip tion : "Devil's Den ; all who enter hero are lost." The Ripley company turned out the largest number of men, and the Waynes ville company had all their men present but two. The Dragoons took the oannon, "Old Jake," to camp with them aud fired salutes at 0 o'clock, morning and evening. John T. Hindinan and Wm. Davidson, of the Ripley company, were dishonora bly discharged from the service, and read out on dress-parade, Thursday afternoon. One was charged with disorderly conduct, and the other with non-attendance at reg ular drill. There were only about eight men in the guard-house during tho week, three for stealing chickens and the others for drunk enness. One man was disposed to "raise Cain," and was bucked and gagged. Too much praise cannot be given the Band. It was the pet of the Regiment, and everybody was proud of it. The regi mental ollicers doted on it, the visitors said it was the best they ever heard, the Cincinnati papers spoke of it in the highest terms, and the members of the Lytle Greys present said it could not be beaten. Mr. Andrew McMicken and his cousin, Dr. Baldwin, of Cincinnati, spent Sunday in camp with Capt. Matthews. . Sunday morning the Noble Guards marched to the parade-ground, and, iu the presence of a large number of spectators, drilled for about an hour in the manual, evolutions and bayonet exercise, besides firing salutes. The boys did the-best drill ing on this occasion we ever saw them do, aud, with the exception of the Dragoons, they were the only company in camp who drilled on the p: rade-ground, aside from the regular camp routine. Sergeant Moyers, Corporal Gregg, pri vates Geo. Barrere, Jno. Duffey, Jno. Burke and Chariey Barry were the mem bers of the Noble Guards who were arrest ed by the guard. Moyers and Gregg were excused and allowed to return home, but the others were compelled to stay. "Fundy" Barrere didn't mind leaving his pills and paregoric, as was reported in the Enquirer, but he did hate to leave the girls, and then he couldn't take his per fumery along. He had to wear a blue shirt all week, which did not become bis complexion, and he had no wax for that stuuning moustache. Truly, "Fundy," it is a gay life, but it all "comes under one general head." R. T. Hough, Esq., Cyrus Newby, Esq., Messrs. Frank Glenn and A. Harman, were the members of the Noble Guards who ran away from the guard. We were not in town to see the fun, but we are told it was rare. The boys were at the depot when the guard arrived and took to the alleys, and the fast time they made would have caused Parole to blush. Hough and New by struck OMt for Greenfield, got lost in the woods and wandered around all night and at every screech of an owl their hats raised on their heads and they prayed for the light of the sun. Mr. Hough is on the streets again, looking pale and deject ed, and very much reduced iu flesh, but at this writing (Tuesday morning), Newby has not yet returned, and it is feared he has been drowned. Frank Glenn was terrified and did not return until Monday night. We have not seen him yet, but it is said his hair is grey and his step no longer elastic. We fear the shock to his nervous system will stunt his growth and he will feel the effects of it in after years. Mr. A. Harman, commonly known as "Smooth," sometimes called "Eph." is also missing, and what can we say for sympa thy? No one knows what has become of him, and he is rumored as dead. The Enquirer said his feet were seen protrud ing from under a hay-stack, but investiga tion proved that it was nothing but a couple of half-grown steers calmly grazing under its shade. The danger is over, Ephraim, and why not return to the Kivs" and show them that thou still livest? Gen. Denver instructed Capt. Matthews to arrest all the members of his company who ran away, court-martial them, and impose the full penalty of the law. It will probably cost them $40 or $o0 each. "Briggler" Barry was the maddest man we ever saw when he got to camp and pre sented his certificate from a physician that he was too delicate to eat breakfast bacon! which, to his great surprise, was contempt uously rejected. He said he could not lose the time from the farm, and the boys say that every night during camp he of fered up a prayer for hia dear "spotted heifer." Private Flint Rockhold arrived in camp just in time to escape being captured by the guard. Sheriff Newell came slipping into camp Saturday moruing, looking as though he had been drawn through a knot-hole. The guard had been after him, but he escaped and went to Greenfield, where his girl gave him the cold shoulder for shirking duty, and then he didu't care what be came of him. Mr. John T. Hire did not run away from the guard, as was reported. lie had per mission from Capt. Matthews to remain at home until Saturday afternoon, and the orders issued by Col. Denver for the guard to bring all the members in were some thing that Capt. Matthews had no control over, or Mr. Hire would not have been sent for. He arrived at caniD Sundav morning, after the guard had returned, and rode all night to get there. Geo. Barrere was taken quite sick on Friday, and was off duty for a day or two. Tom Callahan is entirely too delicate to handle a gun. He reported himself as sick, and did not do but about two days' duty during camp. He was not too sick to play b.lse ball, however. U. S. Marshal Col. Fiery, of the 3d Reg iment O. N. G., was the guest of Capt. Mullenix, of the Dragoons, on Sundav, who ordered out a picked squad of his men to drill in the saber exercise. Sunday was Sergeant II. R. Quinn's birthday, and members of his mess got up a big dinner iu his honor, to which the Enquirer correspondent was invited. Mr. T. II. Langley entertained Miss Eva Hill, of Hillsboro, and Miss Kirk, of Lebanon, on Sunday. Mr. R. B. Julian visited camp on Satur day, and Mr. Frank Gillett on Sunday. Capt. Matthews was officer of the day on Monday, and Lieut. Shipp officer of the Guard on Sunday. All the Hillsboro boys were proud of their new Lieut. Colonel, F. J. Picard. He makes a good officer, and the Commercial says he lias such a "cute" moustache. The attack ou Drum Major Matthews in Monday's Enquirer was mean and con temptible, and was denounced by almost everyone. Hillsboro is proud of the Scott Dra goons. The Local Editor of the News was en gaged by the Cincinnati Enquirer to write up the encampment. His letters appeared in that paper each day until Monday, when in their place there appeared a communi cation which was devoted to abusing him, the Drum-Major, and the Hillsboro militia in general. The reason our letter was not published was, that it did not reach the Euquirer iu time, and it has since returned to us. The other letter was written by Lieut. Leeds, of the Georgetown company, and Local Editor of tho Brown County News. It was caused wholly by jealousy, as Leeds knows he has the poorest compa ny in the Regiment, and yet he wanted it to take the lead. One of our friends, un solicited, replied to Leedj' article through the Enquirer of Tuesday, after we had re turned home, for which he has our thanks. Mr. Harry Bridwell sient several days in camp, reporting for the Cincinnati Ga zette. We wish to return our thanks to the reeimental officers and all the other gen tlemen who assisted us in gathering items. Home Correspondence. BELFAST. The rain storm here on tho 5th was the heaviest knovvn here for 7 years. It was accompanied with high wind, which blew down and broke a good deal ol corn. Brush Creek was the highest since April, 1872. It was then the highest since 1822. The floods doitroyed a great deal of bot tom corn, and washed away a great deal of fencinij. Frank McConnaughey's loss is about $200, George Haigh's about $(J00. I never saw the farmers here so much damaged by fcater. Our corn was poor at best; we dij not get a good stand, then the drouth put it hack, and now the storm has put it into a very bad fix. The new bridge, built last fall at Kel ley's mill, is gone. One-half is below the pike, and the other above it. The pier in the center of the bridge gave way aud the bridge is gone. This is what most of us thought would be its fate. It ought to have crossed the creek with one span. Farmers are busy putting up their fences. Colorado and striped bugs busy in our potato vines, and worms in our cabbage. Apples are falling off at half size. Middle Fork, I understand, was as high ever and are ruined and FLORA. MOWRYTOWN. Another glorious rain, and we have a prospect of a few nubbins of corn. Farmers busy, plowing for wheat. Threshing the order of the day. Yield of wheat 5 bushels per acre, which gives us a knock-down argumeut on the greenback question. Here it is: no wheil,no("rn to sell, mean no money. We see by the News that there has been a great deal of wheat shipped in Hillsboro since harvest; not a bushel of that wheat came from these parts, and Mr. Ewing might have had uncounted millions of greenbacks issued, but we would not have got a dollar of it. Cause why, we had nothing to sell. Don't you see it ? The way to get money is to produce something that other people want, and you get money for it ; that is all there is of finance at this writing. Plain, ain't it? The Taylorsville scandal panned out thusly: Mr. M. F. Funk, merchant at Taylorsville, a gay and festive youth, the owner of a fast horse and nice buggy, has been paying his devoirs to a Miss Hidings, a resident of the village, for some time. Buggies are scarce and girls are plenty, but alas! the result of his continued bug- SY riding with Miss Eidintrs was a suit under the bastardy act, before Esq. Surber, Aug. 7th. It seems she thought those who dance should pay the fiddler. The result of trial was a recognizance for his appear ance at court in the sum of $400. Then, after giving him about a week's rest, she tackled him again ou the loth, on the charge of producing an abortion. Result of trial, recognizance for his appearance at court in the sum of $300. Mr. Funk was ably defended by Mr. Sloane, of Hills boro, and the prosecution was conducted by Messrs. Newby and Vance. C. F. B. PRICETOWN. The at the Township house was a grand success. A goodly number of earnest Republicans assembled and listened to an able address by the Hon. II. C. Dawson, our late Rep resentative in the Legislature. He showed the incompetency of that body to legislate for the great State of Ohio, and gave facts and figures of the time and money spent in turning out good men from places of trust and putting in their stead corrupt men, who have brought disgrace upon the great people of Ohio. He also showed up the treasonable acts of the Congress of the United States, in attempting to starve the Government to death. We think the Captain should deliver this speech all over the county. At the close of the speech Mr. V. B. Custer, who was chairman of the meeting, called on the house to form a Foster Club. Some 20 names were enrolled, and a meet ing was called for next Tuesday night, August 19. Look out for a good report from old Salem, for the eneuiv's guns must be silenced, while I am ON THE WING. Aug. 13, 1879. MARSHALL TP. Weather delightful since the copious rains. Corn greatly improved. If frost keeps off long enough there will he con siderable corn yet. Threshing nearly all done in this sec tion. Fultz wheat seems to turn out the best of any variety sown around here, with the exception of one piece of Claw son wheat, grown by J. W. Grabill, which made nearly 26 bushels to one bushel sown. This is a now variety of wheat, smooth red chaff, with a beautiful white berry. Several of our enterprising farm ers sent for wheat of this kind last fall. It has given general satisfaction where tried. Roderick and Robert Watts have re cently bought the farm owned by Mr. Frank Wise, who takes in trade the spa cious dwelling house owned by Mr. Rod erick Watts in Marshall. Mr. Wise has already traded the same property to Mr. George Wise, who I learn is to settle here about the 1st of September. His family no doubt will be a valuable acquisition to the society of Marshall. On the 8th of July old Uncle Tommy Gibson was agreeably surprised by his friends, it being his 82d birth-day. On the 10th a few friends of Miss Ida S. Tem piin treated her the same way, because she was "sweet sixteen," and the little girl friends of Angeline Templin gathered in on the 9th of thi-t month and completely surprised her. Age 13. LOCHINVAR. LEESBURG. The M. E. church of this place was reopened on Sunday, 10th inst. Services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Collett, of Greenfield. The church now presents a very fine ap pearance in the interior, and the Pastor, Rev. J. I. Taggart, and friends who assist ed in adding so much to the beauty and comfort of this place of worship, deserve credit for what they have done. Mr. Taggart's time here will soon expire, but the many friends he has made hope he will be reappointed. Mr. T. J. Guthrie claims to be ahead on the patent rights.

Hull" recently attended the sale of short-horns in Kentucky, and while there purchased a fine cow, which was shipped to this place and now adorns his already very nice herd of thorough breds. Early this morning an unknown man was found near here on the railroad, dead. It appears that some time in the night he had fallen from a train going east, and was run over, and afterwards by another train, before it was known that he was on the track. His body was completely crushed and mangled, anil presented a sight sad to look upon. A post mortem examination was held, and preparations were being made to give the poor unfortu nate a decent burial, when it was learned that his name was Campbell, and that his mother and sisters live in (Jullieotiie. His remains were sent to that place. It is said that his mother is very poor, and iily able to lose h. r son. AliEWS. Aug. 13, 1879. Chew Jackson's Best Sweet Navy Tobacoo Hov28yl NORTH UNION.

What the New Lexington Say About It. As the Greenfield correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial has come forth with all the pomposity of a crowing roost er iu reterence to tne base-ball game plaved at this place on Saturday, July L'i 1879, we will, in vindication of the New Lexington Club, give the plain facts of the case, showing that they are innocent of the charges brought against them by that high-toned spokesman for the Climax s, tho writer of the article above mentioned. aud also by Mr. Gibson; and that the Lex ington boys had nothing to do with get ting up that "Tournament" or "Hippo drome, (us they would have people be lieve.) The fact is that it was gotten np hv one or two gentlemen of this place, and" that the pitcher was bought by them to be pre sented to the winning club, which would have been done if the Clintons could have come. lue Commercial reporter gave the height of the pitcher as beine two feet. He either was prejudiced against our boys, or had lost his mother wit, else he would have known that pitchers are never made of that height, and if he had attended the game, and not listened to the idle tales of the Climax boys, he would never have written such an article. He says it ouly cost $7.2.1. That is an other of his mistakes. If they want to Know the exact cost, and will call ou Mr. Saylor, of Hillsboro, they will rind that the gentlemen paid J 12 for it. As for the Climax boys paying $4, that is another mistake, for all they gave was the round sum of one dullar, and as it hurts them so badly, they can have it back again if they will ouly call on the captain, or any other of the club, who will cheerfully refund it The reporter stated that the Star Club of Sabina failed to put in an appearance. this is anotner mistake, for tney were here, although they did not arrive until late hour, and after the game between the Lexingtons and that baby club who style themselves the Climax was decided, they commenced to play the Lexington boys five innings, but owing to the rain they only played three innings, when the score was 5 to 4 in favor of the Lexingtons. Instead of "Climax," we think they should adopt the name of Collapse, which would be more appropriate for them. As for mashing the pitcher, as they say they would do, and selling it for old lead. why were they so anxious to pay their $4 (as they claim; and to play for it Ah, yes ! They would have carried it home. with great pride and pomp, if they had won it. They were the worst beaten set of boys that ever went out of any town. So, .Mr. Reporter, try to get the truth, of all things, before you report anything again, for you have made yourself look very small ia the eyes of all readers. Why are the Greenfielders like babies? Because they are great aq Ufa tern. No, the Lexingtons do not intend to put np the piteher again to be played for, but expeot to keep it as a trophy. The Climax's also claimed that the Lex ington boys in the morning broke all their bats. 1 his is a mistake, as they did it themselves, knocking the ball in the fore noon, aud they brought ouly five bats with them. Our boys also say that they have never visited another club yet and coupled off aud made a card-table of the ball-grounds, as some of the Climax's did. Nor did our boys ever make their brais how mnuh they would beat their opponents, as some of the Lliniax s did betting they would beat the Lexingtons 3i to 0. We are of the opinion that they bad bet ter disband until they can bear to endure a defeat ouce in a while. AN OBSERVER.

It is very gratifying to the Hoard of Health to know that a num'er of our citi zens have promptly responded to the call upon them to assist in preserving the health of our pretty city. Put it is well for others to be aware that if they care not how much they offend their neighbors by their unjust neglect to put their premises in order, the Board can resort to methods which iri.V be approved by law-abiding citizens. By what mode of reasoning can any citi xen justify his refusing to comply with re qusitions of a Board of Health, and that Board doing its duty legal! v? L pon what p!ea can any citizen excu-e himself for endangering the health of his neighbor, or even annoying him, by the disagreeable effluvia of a pig-pen that is nearer his neighbor's residence than his own? Can such individual be so regard less of his neighbor's comfort as to make an appeal to law necessary ? It is said that "a hint to the wise is suf ficient." Be it so. If there can be any so unwise, so unjust, notwithstanding their knowledge of the Golden Eule, as still to allow the ill odor of their premises to per meate the stores, the houses and even the streets in their vicinity of which even strangers are aware let them take the consequences. Permit me to advise those citizens who appear to think that they can with impu nity disregard the fair requirements of the Board of Health, to examine the sec tions of the Ohio municipal code for 137-, as pointed out in my last communication, and satisfy themselves.

A Source of Much Bodily Evil. If the habit of body becomes irregular much evil is inflicted on the system. The stomach becomes dyspeptic, biiions symp toms develop themselves, the circulation is contaminated, aud the nerves share in the general disorder. It is of the otmost im portance that the liowels should be thoroughly and speedily regulated when they grow derelict. The corrective agent best adapted to this purpose is Hostetter'sj Stomach Bittern, a wholesome, non-griping vegetable laxative, worth ail the rasping cathartics invented since the time of Par acelsus. People who have been in tha habit of using blue pill, calomel, and other drugs and cheap nostrums for constipation, should abandon such, hurtful and uselt-ss: medicines, and substitute for them this pleasant and gentle aperient, which not only produces the purgative effect natural ly, but also strengthens while it regulates the bowels, stomach and liver.
