A.H.B AI.SL.EY, Editor; FREMONT, OHIO.; FRIDAY, November 7, 183. The report that .Secretary -Riuli-ardson baa resigned was unfounded. The public debt statement for October shows a increase of f 3,039, -573. " V. The success of Bill Alien has brought cut Horatio Seymour o New Vork.to seek a seat.in the Leg ielature of that State. L: , Dkmockatic kditw.s -are .reviving the resolutions of '9S, since Ailtu's election. Having resusciated Allen, they conclude they may as well go the whole figure, and may hap 'fit the "Southern heart." . The Secretary of the Treasury lias BOtiGed that $4500,000 of thir 5 20 coupon bonds of May 1, 1802, hnd $500,000 rrgisted bonds will be ;ie ' deemed on the let day of February, 1S74. ' Hon.

If all who have employees would pursue the the same policy, the result would lie much better for all. ' ' .; Almost every day brings news of the discharge of workmen from the large manufacturing shops. In South Brooklyn on Saturday 350 were dis charged from the Planet Mills, COO from the locomotive works at Pater eon, N. J., and nearly the entire' foie from the Grant Locomotive "Work j at same place. At other points re auction of wages is insisted on as indispensable to continuing work. The Register is still engaged in the profitless task of trying to demon strate that the Rcpublieans"af,thc Thirtieth district made .a grievous mistake in not nominating its editor for Slate Senatorand that the . de feat of the nominee was a result at tributable thereto. The vote of Erie county appears to sustain the latter conclusion if not the former. Thus: In Erie Lackey ran 417 behind Noyes while in Huron he fell short of Noyce but 137, and in Sandusky but 4(5. What a powerful influence the Hey ister does exert in behalf of those candidates for whom it makes a spe!-' cial effort, and within its immediate' sphere. - . r -.. '. Thc failure of the Sprague Man ufacturing Company, of Providence, last week, was another effect of the panic and the consequent stringency.-! Their affairs have been thorougly investigated, and the report of. the Bank's Committee is to the effect that the assets of the company, are $19,495,247, and their liabilities .$11, 475,443, leaving a surplus of $3,019, 804. The Committee also report that the amount of obligations of the company, maturing within the next 90 days, render it certain that $1,000,000 will not be sufficient to enable the company to meet engage ments regularly, and advise that the company and stockholders mort gage their properity to Trustees, who shall issue note3 to amount of indebtedness with three years to rna at 7 3-10 per cent, interest, with the right to pay 5 per cent of the in debtedness as often as practicable. It is thought that arrangments will be completed so that the works will go on, and the creditors be satisfied. The Bucyrus, Crawford County Forum says: "Thc Prohibitionists have the consolation of knowing that they did not throw away their vott-B this year. They were valuable aids to Allen:" And, the Forum might have ad ded "they were valuable aids in se curing a Democratic Legislature,'1 and as the Enquirer intimates, im portant modifications in the Adah Law. When the Adair Law was en acted the Senate stood Republicans 19, Democrats IS, and the ITouee Republicans 57, Democrats 55 or jointly 7G Republican and 73 Demo crats. On the passage of the bill the vote ia the House was G3 tq 50, , pr 52 Republicans and 11 Democrats; for, to 29 Democrats and 1 Republi can, Kleinsmidt of IIamilton,agaiKst. In the Senate the vote stood 17 to 10, or 12 Republicans and 5 Democrats for, and 9 Democrats and 1 Republi can, Gceppcr of Hamilton, against. Jointly,C4 Republicans voted for and 2 against the measure; and 1G Dem ocrats for and 38 against it. . The i above shows who were the friends and who were thc enemies of Uie measure, and what the Prohibition-' ists may expect to follow now that they have assisted the enemies of the law into power. a - - in The Tilton-Beccher farce has end ed. Tilton was cited to attend a meeting of Ply mouth Churchy and answer to certain charges. " lil ton replied that he was not a mem ber of ttie church and had not been for years, and would not obey the summons.., . Comaittee reported aad a resolution .was introduce to strike Tilton' s name v from' the books and at a church meeting last Friday even ing, Beechcr and Tilton both present, resolution came up for action. There way a stormy time, some wishing to have Tilton expelled. Tilton stated he had not been inside . the ' church for four yearF, had not come to ans wer any church charges, but was ready to answer to anything of which Beechcr-might charge him. The contest grew . hotccr, Beechcr then rose and advised that no action,' be taken in TUton's case, as he and . the congregation had known that Til ton had rot attended the services of the church for four 3 ears. He lad no charges to make against Tilton whatever differences they had had were adjusted. The resolution of the committee to 'strut his name from the church roll was then adopt ed.

I; - In JS72 the Republicans. -of :the Western Reserve cast' 48,055- votes. This year they cast only 32,5S7 or a loss of 15,4(53. ' This tote if it had been out would have satisfied the j Democrats that they were cot hav ing as much of a revival as they ex nit over. And that is but a 'sample of the whole State. , But why was the vote not out? Oyer -confidence was evidently one reason, but "want of confidence" and apathy was quite aa efficient in ' keeping the peo pie at-' home. Republicans may: as well learn the lesson first as last, and the sooner they learn it the -better for their political prospects. Thc people were sick of the credit mobi- lier and salary grabbing. They did not condemn those things fori noth ing, and. while they would not go with thai Democracy, remained at home, rather than 16 appear to justi fy such deeds, by; participating in thc election.. Thfc Republicau party have . it in their-power to poll as large a vote ki ever in Ohio, next fall, and thoy will do so if Congress comes to the rescue promptly. The increased salary law must be repeal ed, economy in every department must be insisted on. There must be no appropriations to subsidize this railroad, to build this Canal, or assis steam ship companies..- There must be no yielding to the demands of cor porations for land grants. Let Re publicans stick to 'their platform and keep what is left of ,ihe public do main as a" heritage for actual settlers Let economy rigid and careful be observed, and honesty and integrity maintained and required, and there will be no short coming in the Re publican vote next fall. But let them fail in these things and they need not wonder if those whose hon est impulses have kept them from the election this fall, fail to put in an appearance at another election Not only has the October elections but the November elections as well, demonstrated this position. , The Elections. On Tuesday last election were held in. Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia Illi nois, Minnesota,; Wisconsin, Arkan sas, Kansas, Mississippi and Texas. At the present writing the returns are so incomplete that; results are hardly definite enough to make note of.. -- ' ' Massachusetts has gone Rcpubli can by a .reduced majority. .Wash burn's majority will be about 15,000.

Battle of Fort Stephenson-A Quaint Account of Croghan's Victory. The following account of thc bat tle fought at lower Sandusky, (now Fremont,) on the 2d of August, 1S13 is from a work written in 1819, by Gilbert J. Hunt, of New York, enti tled, "Thc late war between the United States and Great Britain from June, 1812, to Februar-, 1815 in the ancient Historical style." Thc volumed was bought in Fleet Street, London, in January, 1872, by M. O- Wagoner of the Toledo Commercial, from which paper we copy : Chap, xtix Major Croghan defeats the British and Indians, under tieneral Pra ter, in Uie attact ou Fort Stephenson, Lower Maiiduky. Nevertheless it came to pass that Harrison, the chief captain of thc north-west army, had placed a cap tain, a young man, in the hole call ed Fort Stephenson, to defend it. 2. Now the fort lieth at the west ern end of the great lake Erie, at a place called Sandusky. 3. And the number of soldiers that were with the youth in the hole was about an hnndred and three score, and they had ohly one of the destoying engines. 4. Now the name of the young man was George, and his sir-name was Croghan. 5. So, on the first day of thc eighth month, ahout the going down of the sun, a mighty host from Maid en appeared before the hold. 6. Even a thousand savages, and abent five hnndred men of war of Britain ; and Proctor was the com mander thereof. 7. Moreover, they brought the instruments of destruction in great plenty, even howitzers, which were not known in the days of thc child ren of Isreal. 8. And they prepared themselves for the fight, and encompassed the place round aoout, both by land and by water. 9. After which Procter sent a message to the brave Croghan, by a Captain whose name was Elliott, the words thereof were in this sort. 10. Lo!now3'ecan neither move to right nor the left, to escape, for we nave nemmea you in. 11 Therefore, that your blood may not be spilt in vain, we com mand that ye give up the strong hold into the nand of the servants of the King, and become captives. 12. We have the destroying en gines in abundance, and we are a numerous host. 13. Furthermore, if ye refuse then shall thc wild savages be let loose upon you; and there shall be none left among j'ou to go and tell thc tidings thereof. 11. But when Croghan heard the message, he answered and said unto Elliot; Get thee now to thy chief captain, and say unto him, I refuse neither will I barken unto him. 15. And if it be so, that he comes against me with his whole host, even then will I not turn a side from the fierce battle; though his numbers were as the sand3 on thc sea shore. 1G. Lo! David, of old, with a sling I and a stone, slew the mighty Goliah: land sh:i!l the liporile of Cdumbia be ! . afraid, and bow before the tyrants of Europe? - JJ' Tfhff lHot returned to the ay of tUe WS immediately I i . fc J" -. 11. 1 ...... 4 uie mouths ol their engines were opened against the fort. 18. And the noise therefore con tained a long time; even until the next day, but their battering prcvail cr not. 19. Now when Procter saw it was of no avail, he divided his host into two bands, and appointed a Captain to each band ; and they moved toward thc fort and assailed it with great violence. - - 20. But thc men of Croghan were prepared for them ; and they let loose their weapons of war upon them, and set their destroying en gines to work, and smote the men of Britain, hip and thigh, with great slaughter. . 21. And the deep ditch that sur rounded the fort was strewed with their slain and their wounded. 22. So the host cf Britain were dismayed and overthrown, and fled in confusion from the fort into the forest; from whence, in the dead of the night, they went into their ves sels and departed from the place. 23. Now the los3 of the men of Britain were about an hundred and iwo score and ten; and of the men of Columbia there was one slain and seven wounded. 24. But when Proctor had rested his army he sent a skillful physician to heal the tnained which he had fled from and left behind. 25. But Harrison.the chief captain, said unto him, Already have my physicians bound up their wounds, and given them bread and wine, and comforted them, after the manner of our country. 20. For we suffer not the captives that fall into our hands to be buffeted or maltreated; neither want they for anything. 27. So the physician of the King's army was permitted to return to his own camp. .28 Moreover, great honor and praise were bestowed upon thc brave Croghan, the captain of the fort, for his valiant deeds; and his name was spoken of with, joy throughout the land of Columbia. I 1 Horrible doings at Colfax. New Orleans, November 1. A let ter from ex-Judge Charles J. Merrill, dated Colfax, Grant county, October 21), says: In haste and with feelings of horror I write to inform the pub lic of the accursed action of the Me tropolitan police sent here by Lieu tenant Antoine, during the absence of Kellogg. On Sunday night last the house of one of the most respectable widow ladies on Red River was fired into, thc doors broken open ami the un fortunate lady and her daughter of seventeen summers taken out and horrible to relate, violated. Neither of the ladies could be found until late Sunday afternoon. An infant eighteen months old and a grand child of ex-Governor Wells was found out in the road half m mile from the house and near the spot where the foul deed was perpetrated. The infant wa3 the niece of the lady and the child of Mumford Wells, the eldest son of ex Governor Mat Wells. The negroes up here all say that it was the soldiers, and we all believe if they were not the perpetrators they instigated the negroes to the horrible deed of infamy. It is said here that when Colonel Dcklyln was informed of the outrage he siied and said that his troops were up here for a higher purpose than arresting men for such a petty offence. The authorities are believ ed to have sent these creatures up here to give the negroes a chance of revenge, and one told the writer that he had a right now, under thc pro tection of the United States, to shoot and to violate any white woman he met. I said to him that these were State troops, and not United State troops, and he replied that the Colonel had said at a negro ball, the night before, that he wanted all the colored peo ple to come and see him; that now ihey could do as they pleased, as they were now under the protection of his soldiers.' , . After the Insurance Companies, Dubuque, October 31. Quite a commotion was created yesterday by Sheriff Leddy in serving notices on sixteen different life insur ance companies in this city, suits being insti tuted for an amount not less than 1-17, 0(A). Tile code of Iowa says that foreign life insur ance companies, in order to do business in this state, must file with the auditor of state a stateaient made op under oath of their con dition, and procure of the auditor a certificate authorizing them to eugage in business, and every day's neglect to obtain such certificate while doing business the company is liable to a penalty of (1U0.
