The committee invite the hearty co
operation of all persons of whatever
politics who are opposed to Credit Mo
biliers and salary grabs, whether in
Washington or in Vinton county; all
persons who are tired of being bnr
dened by a ring with increased county
taxes, useless, extravagant and careless
expenditure of county money;
All persons who are in favor of lift
ing Vinton county out of debt, and
maintaining her credit on a par with
that of properly managed counties, are
invited to act with us in an effort to
bring about a reform in the financial
management of the county.
The steady increase of taxation, to
gether with the steady increase of
county debt represented by nnpaid
and depreciated county orders, demand
that the taxpayers take the manage
ment of the county out of the bands
of the ring which has brought about
this unfortunate state of affairs, and
elect men to office who are in sympathy
with the people rather than with the

Mr. Howard, Engineer of th
G.McA. &0. RR,i8 now en
gaged in running a line via
Vinton Station and Vinton
Furnace, and it looks at pres
ent as though that would prob
ably be the route selected
should the ground lay as favor
ably as has been represented.
The people along the route are
anxious to have the road go
that way, and offer the right ol
way and liberal subscriptions
to the capital stock, and it is
reported that Vinton Furnace
Co. offer to donate their switch
and subscribe liberally to the
stock besides. A better feel
ing prevails among our citizens
on railroad matters, and confi
dence in the success of the en
terprise is becoming the pre
vailing sentiment Let our
friends be of good cheer, and
meet the call for their subscrip
tions with that promptness
which will enable the Directors
to push the work. We will
have the road. The manage
ment which has built the road
thus far despite all difficulties
will not be balked in the com
pletion of the road by whatever
remains to be done.
Cincinnati carried off fifteen
medals at Vienna, standing
second only to New York City,
which obtained twenty-eight.
Chicago was awarded but three,
St. Louis two, Philadelphia

which is equaled by only two
other States.

The aggregate prosperity ol

Steamboat Explosion.
The George C. Wolff, blew
up seventy five miles below
Memphis, Miss., last Friday af
ternoon, August 22. bhe was
twenty one days from St. Louis
and eight or nine from Shreve
port, on her return. This Is the
third steamer Captain U. G.
Carter has lost in less than two
years first the Oceanus, by ex
plosion, and then the Lock wood
by ice. The survivors of the
Wolff await an upward bound
steamer at St Francis Island.
The Phil. Allen and Cheek,
both bound down, were first to
reach the wreck, and got there
that night Both offered every
possible assistance, and carried
a lew of the injured to Helena.
The George C. Wolff was a
large stern-wheeler, and one of
the very best of that class of
boats. She was built by Cp
tain Gray, at Metropolis, Illi
nois, and named after a large
liquor dealer in St Louis. Be
ing designed for the St Louis
and Red River trade, she was
built very stout, and was only
about eighteen months old.
Twelve persons are reported
lost and fifteen wounded. The
officers were all saved, except
the second engineer, who was
on watch at the time of the ex
plosion. The lady passengers
were nearly all saved.
Peru now possesses a rail
way across the Andes, which
is represented to be the great
est modern triumph ot engineer
Ing skill. Passing from the
seacoast directly over the
mountains into the interior, it
asceuds by a long series of re
markably easy grades and
beautiful curves to the high
est point ever reached by a lo
comotive, and through some of
the finest 6cenery of the South
American mountain regions.
Among other attractions of the
route is the celebrated Lake
Titacaca, the shores of which
are skirted by the railway, and
which is the highest body of
water in the world. The great
e?t elevation on the line is ii,
063 feet, at which altitude the
summer temperature drops as
low as 34 degrees, and July
snow storms are no novelty.
The falling off in the export
of iron from Great Britain to
the United States is conceded
in England, and is only ques
tioned in this country. A Bir
mingham correspondent of the
London Enquirer says: "It has
transpired that it is impossible
to do business with Continen
tal Europe or with America at
anything like our prices for fin
lsbed iron. It is within our
knowledge that German mer
chants who have bought bars
at 12 ($60 gold) and plates
at 14 ($70 gold) a ton declin
ed to have them shipped even
at those figures, which are too
high for competition with na
tive products. In one case, a
German merchant, on being
told lhat.the iron must be sent
from the works, replied that it
might be sold at public auction
in this country and he would

has long been a maxim in Po

and imports manufactured
goods will become impoverish

continue to pursue a policy so
disastrous to nations without
suffering similar consequences.

The Democracy say in their
platform they will "continue to
denounce and oppose" as they
"have always -denounced and
opposed" land grants to cor
porations. But the fact is that
whatever credit or blame at
taches to the inauguration of
the land business belongs to
the Democracy. The first grant
was that ot two and a half
millions acres to the Illinois
Central by a Democratio Con
gress. Stephen A. Douglass
was the author of this measure,
and worked it through both
Houses. Prior to 1858 it was
followed by thirty-nine other
grants, making an aggregate
amount of over thirty one mil
lion acres of the public lands
given to railways by Demo
cralic Congresses. When the
Bourbons resolved that they
had always denounced land
grants they had probably for
gotten these facts. But then
Democratic principles are suit

engineer saw the men obstruct

An Alleged Remedy for Cholera.
In an old number of the Lon
don Times was found the fol
lowing notice of "a Remedy for
the Cholera," which Ms easily
prepared, and so harmless that
it may be useful at this time to
republish it:
Mr. CaulfielJ, of Creagh Rec
tory, Skibbereen, has addressed
the following letter to onetf
our ministers and to the Board
ot Health:
My Lord: As I am in posies
sion of a simple but effectual
preventive to the spread of
cholera, as well as a remedy of
very great power for those at
tacked with this disease, I ven
ture to apply to your Lordship
to have it made known, should
it appear by trial that it is as
effective as I have (ound it As
a clergyman I have had many
opportunities of trying the rem.
edy, and in no case did the
patient die, the recovery being
always speedy and perfect. I
make no apology for venturing
to address your Lordship, as the
great importance of the subject
will be, I trust, sufficient.
"The prevention is simply a
small teaspoonful of powdered
charcoal taken three or four
times a week in a cup ot coffee
or other vehicle in the morning
When attacked with cholera, a
mixture of an ounce of char
coal, an ounce of laudanum and
an ounce of brandy or other
spirit, well Bhaken together,
may be given, a teaspoonlul
every five minutes. In half an
houi I have known this to ef
fertuatly relieve and stay the
disease. As the patient be
comes better the mixture may
be given at longer intervals. 1
have known a patient in the
blue s' ace, and collapsed, per
feclly recover in a few hours
The charcoal was tried as a
preventive on a large planta

hundred was attacked with the

splendid man, full of energy

Kentucky is making toward
Republicanism, on the estab

country across the river is im
proving rapidly; manufacture
is advancing; industry is devel
oping the wealth that the bills
cover; education is encouraged;
churches are fast building;
population is pouring In, and
consequently, Republican prin
ciples are in lively exercise.
Democratic ideas would never
bring out a country in that
way. Let any one take the
the trouble to examine
Tacts in the recent contest,
across the river, and they will
find that where industry thrives
the most, where material de
velopment is liveliest, where
the greatest substantial prog
