The Cincinnati Gazette narrates
the following incident:
Some time ago a German came from

to invest On the advice of his
bankers, he purchased some Gov
ernment bonds. He has drawn his
interest on the regularly, and was
pleased with his investment Last
Wednesday he called on his bankers
to direct his bonds to be sold.
What is the trouble?" was asked,
"Why do von sell them?" - The re
ply came quickly: "I don't like
these Democratic victories. I am
afraid of them. Thoy talk to much
repudiation." The bonds wers sold.
With the proceeds a draft was
bought on Hamburg, and the money
is on its way back to the old country-Oar

Anotner instance of tho uncertainty, if

to us of Pique, where Mr. T. Bush, of this

and TJtica, last week. Xelly's reputation is
too well known everywhere she has run to re
quire eulogism from this side, and she was
entered in the mile and repeat race. At the
close of the first beat it was distinctly visible
her jockey was not doing his duty aud that be
had "pulled" her. The second heat she came
in full two lengths ahead but in the middle of
the track and. for this the judges refused her
the heat Mr. Uurdick, who was in charse of
fteny, protested, and at once left the ground,
witn both horses, for home. TJtica was not
allowed to run for fear of also being housed
by similar partiality. Mr. Bush has since laid
the matter fully before Mr. George Wilka, ed
itor of the ."pri of the Time; and awaits
his decision. That the jockey was not sincere
to his trust wj flagrant, but his certainty.and
faithful promises expressad to Mr. Hurdick
induced him to let him ride the sacoud heat.

er employer, on Summit street, to whom he
sold out after running one year. He then
moved to the corner of Cherry and Summit
streets, to a wood block, converted tw3 stores
into one, and opened oat more extensively in
groceries, general dry goods, liquor, wood and
willowware, Ac About a year subsequently
he again became a victim to fire, loss 13,000
But having $3,000 left, he uow opened on the
corner of the street, where Witstine't store
stands, and for four or five years success
fully ran the grocery business. Having told
out to Carrington, Casey tc Stevenson, with
improved finances he went on Cherry st, and
built the present Hank's block, where he re
mained for a year or two and then opened on
Summit street again, opposite the Toledo
mill, corner of Oak street He also opened
another grocery and,provision store on Mon
roe street where the Opera House now stands,
and at this time about 1855 had three store
running, and was of coarse a leading citizen.
But force of circumstances at a time when the
country was undergoing a financial cruis, led
him into embarrassments, and all he possessed
was brought to the hammer for the benefit of
creditors even his homestead and he was
left comparatively penniless.
In 1859 be was elected marshal, and so effi
ciently did be fill that office that he secured
olection for two following terms. When the
organization of the present city police force,
onder the metropolitan system occurred, he
wat unanimously chosen to take charge of the
detective department, which responsible po
sition he has filled for the past eight or nine
yeari, with the utmost credit to himself and
and satisfaction to the citizens.
During the war he was engaged by the gov
ernment in working up counterfeit cases, and
gained a wide reputation for his tact in cap
turing evil doers. Among smashers, thieves
and other notorious characters it would be
difficult to find any officer so well known and
suspiciously looked upon at Hanks while his
successful career in detecting crime, within
the city limits, is widely known. He is the
oldest member of the force one of the most
expert aud highly accomplished and, as we
said before one of the most popular detectives
in tho State. . Capt Purdy aud Toiedonians
generally have our congratulations on pos
sessing en officer so admirably adapted to the
duties while it it to be hoped hit prospects.
on the shady side of fifty, will produce an ex
ponence cousiaeraoiy smoother and more
worthy the man, than the checkered Ticissi-
udes of his early career.
