JIcARTIU'R, OHIO: '" 1 THURSDAY, JAN. 4, JRflO. SALUTATORY. iiiHjWiiaper, jiow jnjolishers, And.acw Year I AVe wish you happiness in them all. That is cur preeling to the public as we present The Vinto:: Ki-cp:d for our New Year's git. This is the f-enson for exchange tf kmd"!y lokcus cf rc . incmltrnnrc and regard. Here is our o!fcriog to the people ; we hope tan t they wi'I not forget us The jSrev Yc:iv h also a season of , relbnnation I If, iu the past, the : proprietors of the organ of this County have done those things thnt they ought not to hnvn dono ; and left undone those things they . ought to have done, we will strive ..'to make amends for the errors, Loth of commission and omission. Will the people of Vinton county ; aJso turn over a new leaf? The county paper is the representative , of the county public ; and its con dition a fair index to their character for intelligence and enterprise. Tiie most intelligent and well to do ccfmnlunities are those in which the papers are handsomely suppor-- ted and constantly read. The most prosperous merchants, are those who most extensively advertise.' , . This is a reading age ; an age full . of stirring events ; of great coni- 'inercial and social activity. A man who docs not read is only a snag in the fast moving current of our ' public and private life. It has be come a common phrase to say of one who is behind the times an ignorant and useless member of ' society that '"he doesn't take the Shall Vinton county be pointed !' out as proof of the charge so often made by their enemies, that Demo cruts are not as intelligent nnd well informed as their fellow- citizens? Of course this charge is not true, and never will be while1 in the single instance of our own State tho Democracy can point with pride to such representative men as Pucir, combining in himself the highest qualities of the states man, advocate and lawyer; as Tiiurman and Kasxey who have lent dignity to both bench and bar; ns Vallandigham whoso impass ioned eloquence made him 'the terror of foes, and the idol of friends ; . as Pendleton the distinguished ' publicist, whose speeches are ad mitted models of classic eloquence and purity; as Cox, the thorough bred politician, the skillful debater nnd pungent wit. No sect or party in this' country is based upon a monopoly of learning and intelli gence. But wherever there is a community which is not a reading community the people are as much in ignorance of the principles 'and the philosophy of the parties to which they belong, and the creeds which (hey profess, as they are of any other subject. . Being in this condition they can not truly be ! either Democrats or Republicans, , Fresbyterinns or Methodists. In this age of progress they are noth ing ; they are non-descripis "neither lisli, flesh nor red herring." There are but few men, however, who can devote a great deal of time to reading, and fewer still who can afford to procure libraries or take a number of papers. Those who do procure these sources of information, can only do so by making a business of distribu ting the information they thus : obtain among their fellow-citizens, in a condensed form"; so cheap that . all may purchase, and so brief that all may lind time to read. This is . ;what a publisher of a newspaper , does. It is at once the duty and the interest of the public toiipport -, him liberally, in order that ho may ..supply the public with a .good. .. paper, and may devote all his time and energies' to the work. lie is the greatest of p public benefac tors, and the result of his labors is the greatest of all public Idessings. The county paper, if properly con ducted, is the most valuable to every citizeu; because, while it . gives him all that is valuable in the great city papers, it also affords the information in regard to home affairs which can be obtained no-J ' where else. It is his own organ: the representative, of .1 his own . interests and . the interest of the ' community in which he dwells.- - ' 'If the- people of this bounty will support a good paper, yve propose to giv.it to them. We have been, recently, to a large expense in pro curing new types and new materials for that purpose. .We fcave shoTi the sincerity of out profeMionil y our works.

Tt ii, perhaps, hardly necessary .'-'rustosav that while we issue the 0fljt.!al orgftli 0f yint0n couutv,' under a new name, and a new dress, it is, nevertheless, to bo the expon ent and defender of no new creed. We expect to advocate Democratic principles,1' and to freely and fear lessly, discuss, all public issues as they arise iu the light and . under the guidance of thoso great cardinal truths taught by tho founders of our. organization the Jeitersons and JIadisoxs of the golden age of the Republic. While we submit with the best grace possible, to that, which is irrevocable, and deem it the part of wisdom to recognize accomplished fads, we shall stea dily resist the further encroach ments of Federalism ; and strive, in an humble way, to do our part towards "reconstructing" the whole country,-upon the old basis .of the Coustitutiori, as construed by Tuos. Jefferson in his inaugural address of March. 4, 1801; that is to say on the- broad i foundation of "Equal and exact justice, to all men of whatever, State or persuasion, re ligious or political; , peace, com merce and honest friendship with all nations,' entangling alliances with none ;' the support of the State governments in all their rights as the most , competent administra tions; for our domestic concerns and the surest bulwarks' tigainst anti-republican tendencies ; tho preservation of the general govern ment in its ' whole ' constitutional vigor a3 the sheet anchor . of our i pence at home", hud sal'oiy abroad; a jealous care of the right of elec tion by the people; a mild and .sale corrective of abuses which are lop-, ped by the sword of revolution where peaceable remedies are un-J unprovided ; absolute acqu'fescdn ce in the decisions of the' majority ; a well disciplined militia; the su premacy' of the civil over the mili tary authority; economy in the public expense that' labor may bo lightly burdened; the, honest pay ment of our debts' and f sacred preservation of the public faith; encouragement of agriculture' and: of commerce, as its handmaid ; the diffusion of information , and" the arraignment of all abuses, at .the bar of public reason ; freedom of religion, freedom of the press and freedom of person, under,' Uie pro-. teclion of the habeas "corpv ; and i -i i ' K i i i . i trial bv j 'vies impartially selected Ve have wandered Tar from these principles during the ''moments of error and alarm" of the' past five years; we shall do all we can to encourage the people to follow.

We send this number of ' our paper to all the subscribers of the Danoerat and many other citizens of Vinton, in-order that j'ou may sec the paper, and hope that you will aid us in our efforts to publish a newspaper, that, will be a credit to our county. Ye can hero say, truthfully, that no county in Ohio, of the . population and'W&tfth of A'inton, can boast of a neater county paper.

This well is located on the west bank of Salt creek, is' owned by the Hallsvillo company, Mr. M. Toutinus superintendent, and had I think much the most flattering prospects of. any I saw. Unlike the JJlooiuingville wells, it has no flow of water to impede a thorough test as is'tho case with both those wells. ' This well struck its first Oil on .the 1.5th inst., and has since in creased until it now shows consid erable quantities'. at every sand pumping.' The company is prepar ing to test it, and if I am not mistaken, will prove itself a very paying well. The Oil was. struck at the depth ofto59 ft. in a mica .sand-rock, "commonly, called tho Oil rock" from the fact that' Oil is found in or near it. It is intensely hard and of dark complexion, and contains a small proportion of mica. Mr. 1 is a man of more than ordi nary genius, and has everything connected with his -well in the most perfect state of improvement. Ho has invented a peculiar machine for boring Oil and salt wells, that is destined to be one ol the greatest mechanical triumphs of tho age. It is placed on the end of the walk ing beam; it takes tho place' of augerman, turns tho ropo.and re verses us motion at the will of Mr. I'. It disponsos 'with reamers, temper screws, sopo clampers, and aitgorinan, all of wlngli are indis pensibles tinder the. old method; anu is a saving ol several hundred dollars on every well that is bored. Mr. 1. ' has a patent pending and will. realize 'more from it than a dozen wells, though they' flow a hundred bbls per day. So -. perfect is 11 in execution mat iir. r. and his hands leave their: well, go to their boarding house half a mile off, eat' their meals, nnd" all the while tho -boring goes on as though they' were present, buccess crown mm nml inoy lis newly invented ma- chine receive its just merit, is tho wish of an incidental OBSERVER.
